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.

12 ounce can from the Davis Food Co-Op. The aroma on this beer is all about the hops. Initial aroma has a nice grssiness to it, before the massive christmas tree pine aromas start dominating. This is so piney and nice. I feel like I am in a forest. There is a light underlying malt sweetness, too. Very quaffable. Transparent orange-golden body with a nice, frothy, strong off-white head present that leaves nice lacing. Starts off quite sweet and sugary. Definitely has some boiled cabbage/vegetal like notes in the middle. Kind of salty, too. Finishes with an herbal and piney hoppiness. This is very very different. I am not sure what to think of this. It is very smooth, and the carbonation is dialed in, but its not overly drinkable. Just seems like there is a lack of cohesion here.

Pours a cloudy orangy color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, pine and some sweet sticky malt notes. Taste is of citrus and pine hops, lots of sweet malty balance, and some noticeable alcohol. Overall a solid IIPA, but I like mine to lean a bit more towards the hoppy side.

12oz can from Sams, Durham. Very attractive pour, right where you want it to be in terms of the style: lustrous pale orange, creamy head, sentiment to let you know its heavy, Jim. First impression of the nose was relief. Relief that it wasnt more garlicky, as Id read in some reviews. Sure, the thought had already been planted and I definitely confess to tasting some, whether by suggestion or not. But the nose ws really pleasantly bitter, with a prominent spiciness to boot. In terms of the taste, this manifested in the form of green onions, as if somebodyd used this beer in a quick stir-fry. Mostly fresh and raw, in other words, so good marks simply for distinctiveness. But there are so many others that Id go for first.

TheAlum (7048) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2010
12 oz can from drew. Thanks, man! Pours a hazy golden orange, a bit dulled but still glowing a bit. A moderate creamy offwhite head, laces very well and stays big. Aromas are a combination of citrusy grapefruit and orange, decent bitterness, florals, grass, a touch of gumball, lemon. Maltiness beneath is caramel and toffee, a bit thicker. Initial is medium bodied, decent bitterness with lemon, florals, a touch of pine, the bitterness is not strong enough. Pine and florals, caramel and toffee body with fairly big sweetness, touch of metallic and pine. The nose wins me over, looks nice, but the taste is just off. Warming and a bit boozy, the finish is hot and sweet, decent bitterness. Ok, too malty and not enough bittering. A fairly dissappointing DIPA.

Extremely hoppy! Its very similar to hopslam, pliny the elder, and a little sumpin extra. Great hoppy flavor, citrus and a floral scent. Lots of flavor. Great beer!

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - APR 30, 2010
Has a great smooth pour out of the can. I never know what to expect from a beer that comes from a can, but the gubna is just plain good. The aroma is hoppy and a little fruity. The color is goldish with a red tint to it. Its pretty hoppy but nothing too over the top.

Clear orange, thick foamy white head. Aroma of coconut, pineapple, tropical citrus, herb, sweet. Taste is not as bitter as I thought but is there heavily. Smooth for 10%. Thick texture, soft carbonation.

12 oz can (obviously). The pour on this one is a golden yellow honey color with a moderate white head. The nose is honey, floral, piney hops, caramel malt, and a tiny bit of abv. The taste is dank hops with a citrusy pineapple and lemon zest followed by caramel malt and a nice mellow bitterness. The palate is on the thicker side of IIPAs like Great Divide Hercules. The lacing is minimal but somehow a little sticky. Great IIPA.
