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.

Can at home. Pours a clear copper with minimal head. Aroma of pine with a touch of citrus. Taste is as bitter as expected but with a sweet finish that compliments but doesn’t quite balance the bitterness - like Deviant Dales, it lingers. Delicious offering from a terrific brewery.

Doft. Omedelbart kommer HALLON massor jippi annorlunda. Smakar fan massor med och krusbär och hallon i enormt fin blandning. Fiiin låång eftersmak av tidigare nämnda ingridienser. Mycket ovanlig Dipa med sina smaker å oerhört god. En av de bästa av över 200 Dipa jag betygsatt.

Burk 35 cl systembolaget. Gyllengul klar vätska med beiget skum. Frisk och fuktig doft av färska humlelottar och gräs. Kraftfull smak med med barr, grape och hö. Aningen söt med en värmande touch av alkohol och bra tryck i beskan

Can to goblet dated less than 3 weeks ago, fresh. Pours a light med gold with 1/2 inch head receding with some lace. Aromas of sweet malt, caramel, mild bready/yeast, light floral, mild ripe fruit that intensifies a little more upon warming. Pretty mild and subtle if much of any hop character. Taste is some sweet caramel malt of the lighter variety, spicey toast malt, hoppy in a biting just general hoppy flavor, with a spicey pine maybe being predominant. Foamy med full body, a bit of off yeast at times, fairly clean ipa, sort of a minty pine/ peppermint and alcohol in finish. Fairly dry, drinkable. Not too sweet or alcoholy but it is strong with a bite to it. Overall not bad for a double ipa its size but this doesn’t inspire me as a double ipa this size either. Too expensive, I can think of at least a dozen and more this size I would buy before this on average... but this is probably above average. This actually might be one the cleanest IIPA’s Ive ever had and I mean that in a boring one dimensional kind of way.

beerbaaron (1648) - Arizona, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Draft. Clear gold. Great frothy white head. Lots of hops but great balance. Some alcohol. Lighter full body. Creamy. Tropical. Great drinkability for an imperial IPA. Would have thought this would be more aromatic.

thegreenrooster (3501) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Pour is a hazy bright golden with a large white head. Aroma is all full of dank hops. Flavor is again all dank hops with a large mint before the swallow. Very easy as this goes down. Very smooth and hoppy with no alcohol found.
