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.

Fairly clear dark golden with a long lasting white head with great lacing. Nose is very fruity... citrus... melon.. grapefruit ... Funky weed permeates the aroma. Flavor has all the American hop aromas (no pine) .. the fruitiness really slams into the deep herbal qualities.. some skunky onion adds to the hoppiness but the hoppiness really goes all over the place.... pale malts try to keep things together but sorta fail when it warms up. Nice body and carbonation.... but it doesn’t jive for me the way I hoped.

Can from W&M Mansfield. Poured into a snifter. A murky golden amber with a frothy off white head. Strong and sweet aromas and flavor. Very heavy sticky body with notes of bitter pine, herbs and floral notes. Very muddled. Not very fresh tasting. Too sweet for my liking.

Pours golden with a white head giving a rich nose with presence of rye. Taste with a lots of hops and some round bitterness with citric tones. Palate leaving it long lasting. Nice at the fireplace....

Bought by mistake -meant to grab G’Knight. I do enjoy dipa’s though, so no worries. This pours a deep gold with white cling. Aroma is tropical fruits and apricot. Flavor has a dankness and citrus to add to the tropical fruit notes. Not bad, but this is viscous stuff, and the lingering aftertaste is both bitter and dank. Really well-masked alcohol though.

Can as a birthday gift from Pix. Cheers! Pours golden with a nice big frothy white head. The aroma hits as soon as the can is open. Pungent pine. The taste starts sweet with pine before spice and caramel. Sweet tropical fruits throughout too. Grapefruit and mango. Lovely creamy mouthfeel. Excellent beer.

Rätt ljus och rätt klar. Humle och beska och en rejäl alkoholsmak. Smörkola och sprit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma and flavour have lots of candied, caramelised tropical fruits. It’s fresh and fruity up front with the bitterness building up throughout. Feels very smooth and refined. Hard to believe it’s 10% alcohol.

Can... Pours lightly hazy and orange with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma features vegetal elements of celery and onions accompanied by citrus fruits and floral notes. Full-bodied and chewy with modest carbonation. The flavor provides a bold and hearty malt backbone, but the true flavor profile is all about the lupulin. Big-time hop bitterness, graininess and spiciness do the heavy lifting here. Finishes bitter, vegetal and grassy.

Can. Beer Central, Sheffield. Vivid orange. Light haze. Skim of white, clingy head. Looks ace. Soapy, lemongrass hop. Coconut milk. Sorachi goodness all the way through this. Taste is punchy bitter. Plenty of milky, nutty sweetness. Smooth, rich mouthfeel. Really easy drinking. Finishes rich, silky, easy bitter. Lovely.
