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.

Fatehunter (2058) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Golden colored, but not totally transparent. White two inch head that has no chance of dissipating. It looks like the perfect pint. Citrus, as expected, though light on the grapefruit as sweeter citrus come through: mandarin. Different from most IPAs I have tried, but good. The taste is weird... watered down salt water tasting. After that odd beginning, citrus followed by hint of malt. Light and soft bodied, moderate carbonation. The taste was a real let down after the excellent appearance and smell. I will have to try another to see if this was just my can or more prevalent. As tasted I would not normally try another.

Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some caramel malty tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste.

Hazy orangish amber with a lacing off white head. Citrusy, nice malt backbone with hoppy character in the finish. Good one.

rondphoto (3621) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 10, 2016
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.

Aroma - citrus, pine, and floral hops. Appearance - the body is amber in color. The head is 2+" and off-white., and hangs around for a while. Taste - has a mix of citrus (grapefruit like), pine, and floral hops. Nice clean crystal malt.

ffbot (278) - 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, it’s 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

jflopsu (1043) - New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2016

lownote (462) - USA - APR 20, 2016
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.

allanmb (95) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2016
Pours light golden with good white head and clear as anything. Aroma of malt first and foremost with slight zesty hops and hint of citrus. Not a hugely aromatic beer. Decent carbonation and mouth feel. Taste is mainly malt and biscuit which faces to citrus hop bitterness. Not sweet but not dry either. His the alcohol level very well but a bit flat overall.
