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.

I had been looking for a 300th beer to rate and this one fits the bill. I had seen this on the shelf several times but the high pricetag ($15 a 4-pack) scared me off. Well, it looks like Ill be spending more on beer because this Gubna is awesome all the way through. It is light copper in color, with an intricate lace on the top. The aroma is the best since Bells Hopslam, with grapefruit and Asian Orange Chicken predominant. The alcohol is high and it tastes like it. Texture oily, spicy, bitter. Taste is herbal (anise), Florida citrus, and bready. Leaves a nice aftertaste, velvety. It comes in a can too so that should make for some nice lazy afternoons, drifting down the Guadalupe River in an inner tube, with class. So BAM! theres my rating no. 300.

Another great can from these guys. Bright juicy pour with creamy, tight head. Nose is a huge, wonderful, dense and syrupy citrus. Tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit. My brother says "Pog juice" (pineapple, orange guava) .. he might be right. Sip is strong and heavy, juicy coating and well hidden alcohol. Warms on the backend and finishes nicely bitter but with big flavor. Really terrific, and that aroma is to die for.

Can. Big fluffy lasting head, cloudy. Aroma woody, pineapple, orange, floral. Just wish the flavor were a bit bigger. At $14.49/4-pack this has got to be better, and that doesnt mean its bad. A bit green tasting, but nicely bitter, with a pleasant sweet/sourness wrapping around the sides of the tongue.

Better than expected, under control, high IBU but still nicely drinkable. Carbonation right there. Deep yellow coloured body with off-white head. Hop aroma.

My wife likes it and she could not believe it had 100 IBUs because the malty base nicely complements the explosive hops. The alcohol is not well hidden though and with the rye malt seems to add a scotch like palate at its bitter end. The flavor up front is dark caramel with a nice touch of resin to it. Maybe OsKar should bottle this and stray from its can ethos for just this beer? Imagine this with a cork popping out? There is a nice creamy bubbly medium dry texture here. Id love to have this in a bomber.

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Dark gold pour with a fragerance of fruit, pine and pepper. The mouth was piney, hoppy and olive with a citrus finish.. Medium bodied, different from the norm. Spicy and good.

At least now I know that I cant stand a beer brewed with only summit hops. Thats the only positive thing I can say about this beer. Its definitely not for me.

mcberko (15439) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2010
12 oz. can, pours hazy, creamy golden orange with a small white head. Huge grassy and citrusy hops aroma upfront, with caramel and grapefruit as well. Flavour has a ton going on - spices, citrus hops, grass, caramel malts, dominant grapefruit towards the end, with that spiciness and bitter citrusy hops finishing. A tremendous barrage of hops - excellent.

KyotoLefty (9645) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 19, 2010
Can. Aroma of grass, caramel malt, earth. Orange to light amber color with lace. Sweet and fruity flavor, boozy, hot, with a peppery finish. Soft, light, silky mouth. Quite sweet and boozy. Ok.
