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.

12 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a light copper color. This features a nice head, about two fingers high and off-white colored. The retention is quite strong given its gravity, and the texture is nice and fluffy. S: Itís dank as fuck - this really brings back memories of Devil Dancer. But thereís also a lot of malt sweetness to it, as well. On the other hand, I seem to note a lot of alcohol, unfortunately. This one could really go any way in the flavor profile... T: Much sweeter than what the nose indicated. It opens with a lot of caramel, toffee, and dark fruit sweetness. Alcohol is prevalent but not remotely harsh, however it is pretty intrusive. Dank, resiny hops (and yes, even some onion) are only a subtle backing to all of the malt sweetness. Ah well, itís not exactly fresh, so I canít complain too much. M: Sweet, but not that heavy - or even that resinously bitter, really. Given its sweetness, itís pretty easy to down for a 10% DIPA. It could use a bit more carbonation to help cleanse the finish better. O: Iíll have to re-try this one fresh. Itís pretty much turned into a World-Class Barleywineô at only three months, only with "Sweet and Simplistic" replacing the "World-Class" part.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Fresh aroma of hops and malt. Clear medium/dark amber color, off-white head that drops to a full cover, hanging strands of lace. Taste is sweet malt with light rye bitter that pushes a shot of hops through the swallow, only to return to malt, and then tea in a long finish. A complex, nicely balanced brew.

ffbot (282) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 25, 2016
Pour is a thick almost see through dark orange, thick head that dies after you drink, but retains a minimal presence after with kickass lacing. smell is caramel, orange, bitter hops, pine, burnt sugar, itís all there and very nice. Taste has a front of caramel and citrus mix, sort of a dark chocolate orange and rich caramel flavor with the hops and the pine settling in for the after taste, which is sweet combating bitter

Strong hop aroma towards pine and a sort of orange like thing. Rich. Pours clear copper with a nice stand up head. Taste is woah strong. Hop bitter dominates. The malt is good and not thin. Stands up to the hops. Alcohol warmth. There is some super orange hop flavor in there as well, but the bitterness hits me first. Aftertaste is a long bitter ride. Good slughtly oily body.
