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.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - AUG 13, 2010
On tap @ Tap House Grill. Clear orange pour, scant white head which leaves a heavy lace. Flowery nose, balanced, heavy body with excellent mouth feel. Grapes, resinous hops, dates and a quick finish.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - AUG 13, 2010
12 Oz. Can. Pours a hazed light golden copper with solid medium head and great lacing. Aroma is very pungent hops with strong notes of citrus, grapefruit, and resinous hops. Flavor is very hop dominant all the way through with a very bitter and slightly spicy taste and has only as much malt character as is necessarily. Medium bodied with a surprisingly smooth palate and a very clean finish that has a nice but calm aftertaste. I expected the finish to be very sticky and hop oily but it is not at all, quite refreshing.

jercraigs (10000) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
2010-07-05. Crisp golden body with a small white head. 3+ Leafy green hops, lovely citrus and topical fruit accents, odd weedy note pops up. 6+ Flavour is similar, sweet citrus and tropical fruit, green hops with a bit of resin and misc green hop character. Alcohol is fairly restrained. Fruity character grows pleasantly as it warms. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate. 3+ Good beer to finish up our west coast trip. Can from Pike Street Beer and Wine, Seattle

[email protected], Stockholm. Reddish orange colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits,grass, some floral hops as well along with caramel malts and some mild toasted notes. Flavour is very bitter fruity, grassy and herbal with also some floral notes. Mild bready and caramelly malts along with some alcohol is smoothening all the bitterness up a bit.

bigbish (688) - California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
This is a fantastic IIPA to me. Pours with a redish hue, a thin head that disipates quickly. A sweet, hoppy aroma with a touch of caramel malts. The flavor is very well balanced. This is how I like my IIPAs. Hoppy, and with a good dose of malts. Caramel and toffee come through for me, with some citrus and floral notes up front and a long finish. My god, I think Im in love.

scoth (668) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Pours clear amber, with a medium beige head, very fine clinging lacing. Deep pine resin aroma, the whole forest in a glass, with notes of grass, grapefruit, some floral notes, and biscuit. Medium full bodied, smooth and creamy, gentle carbonation. Mild sweetness, a bit more sweetness and some bitterness picking up mid-palate, with an intensely flavorful bitter finish. A hop-heads delight.

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2010
can. Pours murky orange with big yellow tinged white frothy head. Aroma of fruity hops, citrus i.e. grapefruit, but sweeter tones too, white grape, even mango. Mouth feel is 100% full bodied, thick, smooth, creamy, alcohol masked until the after breath in which it is slightly present. Flavors present a fruity hop blast, with some malt undertones noticeable, to a lasting bitterness which develops in intensity on the finish. The initial fruitiness reminds me of caramelized apple and pear, candied white grape, raw grapefruit, subtle apricot / mango. Bitterness is all citric, malts noticeable but hard to characterize. Overall very nice, I actually like it better than the gordon. I think this is the last for me to try of all the commonly available OB brews in stores, and it is a very nice one. Highly recommended for people who like IMP IPAs.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2010
12 oz can from Bier Stein. Poured pretty much straight bright orange with a sticky and thick white head. Aroma is big orange citrus with notes of grapefruit and a more prominent than expected caramel malt smell. Flavor is pretty much the same, big orange and grapefruit but also too over caramel-malted for me. A decent beer but kind of like Dales Pale it disappointed me. I think Ill stick with Gordon and Ten Fidy when it comes to OB brews.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Can: Pours a deep golden with good clarity and a white film. Clean citrusy aroma with a sharp pine note and sweet cookieish maltose. Creamy slick body. Fairly sweet throughout- honeyish maltose dominates with a brief inky bitterness. Not dry enough and one dimensional. Drinkable.

larsga (7332) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2010
Small white head. Hazy yellow body. Citric floral anise aroma with notes of resin and pepper. Dry-sweet orangey anise taste with meaty floral notes. Fullish body. Sharpish mealy somewhat hot mouthfeel. Bitter orangey mealy aftertaste with floral alcoholic notes. A bit too overpowering and harsh. Could use more restraint. (0.35l can, Olympen, Oslo.)
