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.

Growler with my FIL and neighbor on the new deck! The most balanced and quaffable IPA I have ever had. There was just enough hop to call this a IPA but no more. I think the IBU number is a bit high. The malt base of this was strong and the dark Munich and rye malt really stood up and played well with the hop bitter. The first blast of hop from the growler was a tad muted but opened up like crazy as it warmed. The feel was perfect not too thin or thick, the finish was longer than the brewers description mentions, this is not a bad thing. The finish was fairly long and enjoyable, morphing from the hop bitter to the malty bite of the rye then to a soothing dark. One thing the shocked me was the 10%. It is nowhere to found, except in the bottle of the bottle.

Trying to find an IPA that I like. Seems like iipa are more agreeable. This had the hops but also included much malt so it was balanced and not just a hop bomb. Resin nice palate light to no citrus some barleywine characteristics

Can. Not quite as aromatic as many IIPA's but flavor makes up for it. Smooth, mild malt with nice hop balance.... Some woody tones as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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
