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.

Shocking that this extremely balanced, smooth, chuggable brew is a 10% heavyweight. Outstanding beer in all aspects, easily a favorite of mine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mjp12 (1098) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2016 Poured from a can, big foamy white head, lots of hops, and yes, a slight cheese hint in the aroma. Very clean tasting, not as sweet as you would expect for its abv. Good hop finish.

Mild orange tangerine aroma. Hazy burnt orange body with finger thick white head. Bitter blast balanced with a tangerine sweetness. Bold and warming going down.

Fin (8859) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
Can from Beer Gonzo webshop, Earlsdon, Coventry, consumed at Cliff House Campsite, Dunwich, Thursday Christmas Eve 24th December 2015 Pours mid to warm gold with a white head that slips elegantly down the side of the glass. Really thick in the mouth, you can tell this is a big beer. Cheesy bittersweet bite, oily mouthfeel, also the aroma is a little cheesy a damn good beer but one is enough. A7 A5 T8 P4 Ov15 3.9

Keg at Andrew Usher’s. Hazy orange body with a thick white cap. Thick lacing marks. Aroma of orange and golden syrup. Flavour of overripe pineapple and resin. Medium to thick body with a sticky mouthfeel. Light, prickly fizz. Surprisingly mild given the ABV.

Can at home. Pours a hazy golden with a lasting medium white head. Aroma is pineapple, apricot with a caramel sweetness. Taste is mango, pineapple, piney hop resin, slight citrus and dried apricot. Really juicy and sweet with a nice balancing bitterness, thoroughly enjoyed this.

Super strong apricot fruit nose with a prune taste on the back of the tongue. Complex palate with piney and fruity sweet tip and then waves of gentle, lingering, comforting, bitter tones.

chinchill (3590) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2015
{From notes}. Pours a slightly hazy, orange-gold color with smallish, near white head that has little retention. Too much alcohol on the taste, yet it is partially hidden in the nose. Plenty of hop aroma, a expected, with malt (rye?) in the background. Nice lasting hop finish Medium body This is a more piney than citrusy IPA, a characterization that often leads to a lower rating for me. The sensory impact of the high ABV doesn’t help either.

Enjoyed it. Good dry-hopped aroma. Pretty copper color with good head retention. Full body with nice carbonation. Big Flavors of pale malt and rye with a nice blend of spicy hops.

weordie (569) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Pours copper with a really fluffy head that lasts. Aroma is that lush malt aroma with a hint of hops. Some great malt flavours are met with a lemon accent that gives way to a mouth drying bitterness. Brilliant.
