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.

Pours a slightly amber orange with thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma strong of resiny hops, slight citrus, and a nice spicy character. Flavor matches well with a bit of sweetness that I wasn’t expecting. Decently heavy, but dry on the palate and makes for a nice drink, but the price is slightly disappointing.

Can @ Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Pours cloudy orange with a creamy white head and lacings. Sweet fruity and malty with some solid malty caramel and quite some juicy orangey hops. Sweet with a sticky bitter finish.

SG111 (378) - New York, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Canned 03/08/15. Pours golden color, large yellow/ivory head. Aroma is pineapple, lemon, pine, orange peel, slightly dank hops, sweet malt balance. Really good smell. Flavor is pineapple, candied sugar, malt, grapefruit, citrus. Really really good flavor. There’s so much malt, w/o being a malt bomb. It’s actually phenomenal. Not sure why I took so long to try this.

Gubna, how do you say it, with all its variations that taste oh so different. This stuff is so expensive at Hollywood, $4 for 5 oz. . Some ipa aroma in the nose, floral perfume I think. From the first taste its IPA all the way baby. Nice lacing I notice. This is IPOA fer sur, not in the double territory mind you, but really kick ass stringent bitter. Finish is terribly pn I{PA style ,ewewewewe.

Can from Toft Vin, CPH - golden amber pour with a puffy off-white head. Aroma and taste comprises a medley of citrus and tropical fruits, caramel malty, toffee, some tangerine, lemon, pineapple, pine needles, lovely bitter finish. Excellent DIPA.

Pours a light coppery color with a billowing, white, soapy head that lasts quite a while. Sweet smell to it, with a hop presence. Taste is confusing. Very sweet. For some reason rock candy keeps entering my mind. There is a hoppiness to it, but not overpowering. Get a bit of resiny flavor in the back end. So, sweet malt, candy-like flavor. A bit of spiciness (not hot spicy, but spicy nonetheless). The beer coats the whole mouth. I like it, but the taste is really unique and still wrapping the head around it.

Thx! 355 ml. can sampled @ “Nog-een-half-jaar-tot-de-volgende-EBT”. Hazy orange, little head. Nose is fruits, vanilla, sweet; Taste is vanilla, popcorn, shockingly sweet, onion hops, sugar, citrus, sweet spices. Thick body. Is this how it is supposed. Feels like a mistake but I have to admit that I really did enjoy the taste. Really enjoyable for me, whatever this is.
