COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each year GUBNA takes on a personality of its own. We seek out the most exciting and best available hops from each individual season to create a potent and complex Imperial IPA. GUBNA is packed with Rye and North American Pale Malt and accented with Munich Malt to give a spicy and flavorful backbone to support loads of kettle hops driving the IBUs to triple digits.
** This beer will now feature different hops in the massive dry hop every year.
2015 - Features whole leaf Galena hops, plus Sorachi Ace and Columbus hops. Dry hopped with copious amounts of El Dorado, Comet and Chinook.

nearbeer (4877) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2010 Can. Clear amber-orange with a small film of bubbles. Nose is acrid pine oil and white pepper, with some light pineapple and grapefruit. Flavor is pineapple, peppery rye, resin, minty citrus and light honeycomb. Medium body is smooth and tongue tingly. Well-hidden alcohol but a bit too much rye for me.

JohnnyJ (5400) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Can. Pours an amber color, with off-white head. Stale earthy malts, candy sweetness, small amounts of tropical fruit, herbal hops, and bitterness. I didnít like this too much, at the most this is quite marginal.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Can; canned 3/26/10. Pours orange and amber-colored with a small beige head. Smells like a fresh pine grove, with citrus rind, juniper, ground black pepper, and some caramel malt and funky papaya. Initial flavor is sweet cane sugar and slight pine, fading to bitter grapefruit rind, alcohol, and sour citrus. Creamy, warming, slick mouthfeel. Brown sugar and tart ethanol finish. I wasnít sold at first, but each successive sip is better than the last. Iím not sure I get the full 100 IBUs, as this has a large malt backbone. Iím enjoying this very much.

cracklefish (108) - Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Pours a cloudy light orange with a lasting eggshell head. The first smell I get is wort. Big time. The aroma has spicy hops and pine but the malt is overpowering. The flavor is where this beer shines. I get notes of orange and apricot, pear and earthy spice. The malt is sweet and matches the hop flavors very well. The body is on the light side and already has some age on it as the 10% is masked very well and the drinkability is high. The finish has some anise and toffee characters that make it a bit unpleasant and medicinal but a fresh drink cures. The bitterness is very interesting here as it doesnít shellac your teeth like so many D/IPAís. Thanks for that.

Nickls (2374) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Can courtesy of my lovely lady. Creamy and bubbly eggshell white head with solid retention; fairly clear light golden orange. In the aroma I get grapefruit hops at first; some mango; some astrigency, but not in a bad way, just powerful hop presence, and a little dank. Damn hoppy flavor, which was what I was hoping for. Bit of pine in addition to the grapefruit, some caramel, and a very light sweetness in the finish. Bit of hop burn. More viscous body with light carbonation, and a bit sticky. Quite good, and definitely have a fresh can on my hands. Really enjoyable, but not one of the best IIPAs out there.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 Can at Patricks. Clear, golden with almost no head. Off wiite. Sweet aroma with lots of pinecones, a good dash of liverpaste and some herbal onion like notes. Alcohol too. The flavor is quite bitter, vith pretty much the same elements as in the aroma. Piney bitter finish with liverpaste and onion. Full body. Sort of strange, but delicious. Yummi. 100527

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Can, I love that. Pours a nice hazy orange gold with a good french vanilla head. The head lasts well and laces real nicely. The aroma is out there without even lower my nose to it. Hoppy with good hints of pine, and a touch of citrus. Has a good carbonation. Blended very well. Alcohol is well hidden. The flavor is excellent. Bitter but not too much. Very smooth and easy to drink. Just the right amount of hops. The texture is oily. Has a great mouthfeel. The finish is perfect with a good aftertaste. If you canít tell I really like this beer. Well done to style and just totally drinkable.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2010
355 ml can, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 10.0%. Orange colour, moderate off-white head. Lovely aroma of piney hops, smells like a pine forest, also some fruity notes (oranges). The flavour is a massive attack of fruity and piney American hops, fairly light bodied and dry for its strength.
