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.

blankboy (7482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2010
Can [12oz]. Pours a cloudy golden-orange with an average size frothy white head. Nice lacing on the glass. Oh hell yeah, that smells great: Lots of resiny, citrusy, piney hops, a bit sweet and quite fruity. Very hoppy flavour along with some sweetness, lots of fruit, a good amount of malt, some alcohol, spices (!) and a long, dry, bitter finish. Alcohols present but doesnt taste like 10%, its slightly more subtle then that. Medium bodied. A great DIPA that would be even greater if the alcohol were more hidden -- still, a great DIPA in a can! A can!

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2010
From can at Olympen. Hazy orangey golden with a lacing head. Potent grassy and citrussy hop aroma. No compromise hop bitterness, some fruity sweetness provides the backdrop. Dangerously delicious.

Really nice double IPA. Quite hoppy with strong citrus flavor that overshadows the whole experience. Bitterness is fairly high, but mild sweetness offsets and brings the whole thing together.

jb43 (1650) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2010
(Firkin at Firkin Rendezvous, sampled 2/20/10). Cloudy yellow/copper color. Medium off white head. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Flavor of moderate spicy citrus, moderate bitterness, and light malt. Long duration. Bitter finish. Slick texture. Moderate carbonation. Good lacing.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - JUN 3, 2010
12oz can served in a shaker pint. Poured a slightly hazy gold with less than a finger of white head. Piney hops in the aroma also a bit of a vegetal smell. More piney hops in the flavor with some malt sweetness. Medium bodied. Some onion flavors come through which are attributed to the hops. Drying finish. Pretty easy drinking at 10% but I wouldnt want a bunch of these. The first time I tried a sample of this, the onion was overwhelming. I enjoyed the full serving much more, but I can see how people would be put off by the flavor.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - JUN 2, 2010
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont Circle, March 2010. Pours a transparent amber with a thin white head. Aroma has lots of super sticky, sweet citrus and some alcohol. Taste is citrusy and hoppy, but the citrus is too sweet and somewhat medicinial. Finish is bitter, but not enough to wash away the sugar.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2010
A amber body with a white head that seemed to have good retention. Aroma had heavy pine notes mixed with citrus and alcohol. Flavor had a good hop bite to it, balanced out with nice caramel malt notes and some warming alcohol. Finish was crisp.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Can @ Coles, Buffalo NY. Lighter Orange gold pour. Pungent aroma of booze, grapefruit, citrus, resiny & sticky hops. Boozy, high octane taste upfront, with sharp, somewhat harsh hop burn (a good thing). strong alcohol finish that tends to linger. Good IIPA perhaps to tad too agressive

Beerman6686 (6543) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2010
This poured a ruby red color with a small off white head. Aroma was lots of piney resinous hops. Flavor was very sweet in the forefront, followed by a huge piney hop presence, but then unfortunately followed up by a strange onion and garlic taste that everyone is talking about. Just hard to get through a whole glass.

blipp (8643) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Resinous piney hoppy aroma with some earthy notes. The flavor is piney and earthy with some malty sweetness. A bit over the top, good but not great.
