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.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2010 [My 100th Colorado rate, my native state] Can. Pours a clear glowing orange with a slight reddish hue, sticky foamy frothy egg-shell colored head. Aroma is super piney, crisp and clean, seems like some honey caramel sweetness, light biscuity rye spiciness towards the end, great citrus, grapefruit, wonderful. Flavor is the same, clean, crisp and spicy, the rye complements the piney citrus hops wonderfully, medium sweetness, very well attenuated, bitter but also well balanced, some floralness towards the finish. Medium bodied, viscous but not syrupy, oddly feels a bit heavy, fluffy carbonation with a light sizzle, generally clean. Great DIPA!

Can at Akkurat. Great fresh and dangerously refreshing IIPA. Lots of sweet citrusy and fruity hops. Well balanced.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Pours clear amber with thin head. Beautiful aroma of grapefruit, pine, and herby hops, just a hint of roast, spice, and smoke. Tastes of rye, woody and herby hop. Just slightly hot an peppery alcohol. Finishes with crisp bitterness, and a grassy bitter aftertaste. The rye is nice, not overpowering at all. Very crisp clean hop flavor, not what I was expecting from a 10% ABV.

vacantskies (208) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2010
The aroma is strong and hoppy. The beer is bright orange in the glass. The flavor is hoppy with a bit of whiskey.

hirigalzkar (3020) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. This is an enormously sweet and fruity DIPA. The aroma has got notes of mango and honey melon. The taste has got notes of sweet summer strawberries, resin and caramel with a small bitterness in the aftertaste. This is a big bodied beer with a big taste that manages to be very, very hoppy without being to aggressive. I cant really see that there are any better DIPAS out there.

slitcher (267) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy gold. Aromas of citrus and caramel. Flavor starts out slightly sweet, has a huge hop middle, and ends bitter and dry. The hop flavor here is incredible. Harrumph Harrumph!!!

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Can served in a tulip. Pours clear light copper with a fluffy off-white two-finger head of lengthy retention and considerable lace. Aroma is candy sweet, carameled pine, and orangey grapefruit. Slightly sweet, big bitter flavor. Medium body, thick, creamy texture... POW! Hop explosions! pow Pow POW! Neverending bitterness and some finishing heat. Dont plan on tasting anything else for a while. (The candy aroma disappears on subsequent investigations with only hops now evident. Hop bomb aftermath it seems.)

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 22nd May 2010. ChrisOs Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia tasting! Clear gold bber. Piney nose. Soft palate, a little dry. Piney grassy aromatic hops, with mint, - not to heavy and fairly sweet. A little grapefruit and pineapple in the lead up to the finish which is slightly warming and turns a little bitter. Could drink a bucket of this!

Can pour. Strong bittersweet pineapple rises from the glass. An excellent match for the clear burnt orange color. Atop floats a nice tan head that soaps the glass as the ale is consumed. INCREDIBLE!!!!! The bitter hits you like a bone rattling spear from Steve Atwater on a helpless reciever hung out to dry across the middle. Poor bastard. But the Gubna is fair and is not done. Oh no, it is equally as sweet. Sweet as a 4th quarter bomb from Elway dumped gently into the arms of a streaking Rod Smith. VICTORY!!! Sweet, bitter, and leaves your head swimming. Indeed, the Gubna is do his praise.

Can via fat sam, who never leaves the beach. What kind of name is Gubna? Comanche Indian? Anyway..this pours pretty damn transparent bronze, thus its liable to lose some of those humanitarian awards. Head is white, and thin...but I dont even think thats a crime anymore. Nose is hoppy in an aged grapefruit juice kind of way, which is a weird combination, but then so were my parents. Flavors bring back that old grapefruit thang and a sweet awkward maltiness...and Im not sure I want those sitting together. The hoppiness doesnt really even shine past the sweet malts here, but youd think that in a IIPA, the hops would be callling rank here...but I guess they moved out...this morning. My overall opinion here...its pretty grey. How grey? Charcoal. You know, its a shame about Oskar Blues...Dales Pale & Yellow Pilz are great..but the brewerys been dying for years. If i had a nickel for every dales pale ale Ive slammed down, Id be a rich woman...but their newer shit doesnt seem to impress me that much. Do I like this beer? No! I mean, no, you cant ask me that question
