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.

Poured from can. Bright, dry nose with some citrus elements -- mostly, though it seems herbal and resiny. For some reason, it smells like lettuce to me. Color is a brilliant gold with a long-lasting, moussy head. Flavorwise, it is out of balance; way too much hops compared to the necessary malt. Very much a one-note brew, and that doesnt work for me when I know this style can be done more elegantly.

Another great tasting brew from Oskar Blues. A lot of complexity in this one. Viscous bread-like flavor with a little citrus coming through. Despite the 10% ABV, alcohol is not too prevalent. Fantastic beer.

Can. Canned on: 04/23/10 @ 0832. Pours a slightly hazy copper with an average-sized antique white head. A super resiny aroma of stinging grapefruits, lemon juice, citrus rinds, fresh pine needles, and some wet cardboard. The scent of freshly baked rye bread becomes apparent as things warm up a bit. Full-bodied and a touch syrupy. There is a surprising amount of caramel present upfront taste-wise considering the fairly one-sided aroma. Some sourdoughy qualities follow along with quite a bit of toasted rye. Finishes with plenty of acidic grapefruits and some lemon juice. Bitter and very drying at the end. This is some dangerous shit as just a touch of warming alcohol is present throughout. Ive had some of these cans in my fridge for a few months now and this one was much better when fresh.

Gubna is a hazy golden ale with a soft, dense white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a huge, hoppy aroma with lots of pine and flowers. It smells sweet with a touch of berry. Its full bodied and very smooth with a clean finish. Its pretty sweet and pretty bitter. Its well balanced with lots of hop flavor. Its mostly resiny pine with echoes of Red Zinger tea. The aftertaste is resiny and bitter. It goes down real easy for 10% ABV.

Thanks to zach for this. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white foam. Aroma is a punch of grapefruit and floral. Taste is abrasive alcohol and hop bite followed by citrus and pine. Nice beer but not an everyday beer. Packs a punch.

12oz can pours hazy amber with nice frothy off white head. Floral aroma is pungent as soon as can is opened, also caramel and citrus. Has is very sweet with a creamy texture. Taste is a good balance of sweet and bitter, caramel, pine, and grapefruit. Well rounded and enjoyable.

Well this is an IIPA alright! Poured a hazy amber, modest but dense creamy head. Nose with rich with piney hops, touch of citrus and some body odor. Light fruity malts beneath. Flavor is strong on the hops, with a zingy, resiny hop flavor. Malts understated, with a honeyed tone. Strong, sharp bitter finish with a piney bite and a lingering sting of alcohol on the palate.

Can. Pours a Cloudy orange copper with a small frothy white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is a sweet fruity malt and floral hop. Medium mouthfeel with a smooth bitter cascade hops with caramel and a nice smooth finish. Hides the alcohol extremely well makim it easy to drink. Enjoyed this one, a very impressive IIPA from Oskar Blues.

Gubna pours out of the can to form a bubbly, frothy white head with a hazy orange color. Aroma is very strong and defining, with a bit of an almost yeast-like character and spicy, piny, sappy hops and an almost sour malt. Flavor is more of the same experience, light and smooth, with a little citrus, but packing a big punch. A little soapy overall, with a cheek-puckeringly hoppy bitter and slightly alcoholic finish.
