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.

BoydJustitz (58) - Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Clear dark yellow with a massive frothy white head. Aroma is moderate malty, massively hoppy. Flavor is mostly hops, heavy on the bitterness with a long duration, some fruity tones. Medium body, oily, light carbonation. A decent double IPA.

airrick2003 (636) - Louisiana, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Appearance: the beer is a hazy yellow color, pours with a very large and dense beige head Aroma: caramel malt, pretty faint under all that thick head, milk Taste: alcohol warmth, strong bitterness throughout, citrus, very strong caramel malt base Palate: heavy mouthfeel, soft carbonation, bitter aftertaste Overall: a bit too much alcohol Taste for me, still pretty good balance of malt and hops, it's got lots of both, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jh773 (208) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 Canned on 3/30/15 - "Calm like a bomb". Slightly orange straw-yellow color, dense head about one finger thick. Aroma is sweet pineapple, mango and banana. Taste is complex with lots of tropical notes, plenty of rye spice and just a hint of savory garden vegetable flavor. Thick, slightly syrupy body. Good bittersweet finish, slightly oily palate. This one’s a winner.

vyvvy (4540) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 26, 2015
Pours clear golden with a large off-white head. The aroma has lots of sweet maltiness, Sorachi Ace lemony aspects, herbal hops and a pretty good amount of alcohol is present from the beginning. It has a pretty full body with a mild amount of carbonation, The taste is hoppier, but also has a lot more alcohol. The flavor starts with earthy/woody hops, dried crusty bread, caramel, lemony hops, lots of alcohol and a bit of pine. The finish has some grapefruit zest with hops, but the earthiness and lemon are way up front along with the alcohol.

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2015
Potent, solid, alcoholic. Good pour with a sweet middle. The rye is smooth. This beer is pretty straightforward. It’s a strong IPA with a strong aroma and finish.

EtTuCthulhu (1296) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 20, 2015
This beer pours a very clear golden color with a large white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma blends citrusy, resiny, and floral hops with some light biscuity malts, and the taste mildly sweet, slightly bitter, and a touch sour with a resiny and sweet aftertaste. The palate fuses a medium-light body, thick and creamy texture, and a soft carbonation.

SG111 (416) - New York, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Canned 03/08/15. Pours golden color, large yellow/ivory head. Aroma is pineapple, lemon, pine, orange peel, slightly dank hops, sweet malt balance. Really good smell. Flavor is pineapple, candied sugar, malt, grapefruit, citrus. Really really good flavor. There’s so much malt, w/o being a malt bomb. It’s actually phenomenal. Not sure why I took so long to try this.
