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.

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.

3.9
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.

3.7
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

3.4
Beerman6686 (6607) - 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 (9502) - 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.

3.8
savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Tap @ Oskar Blues, Lyons. Slightly hazy golden/amber with a creamy head. Huge hop aroma of pine citrus and lots of floral notes with some malty scents. The bitterness hits you right away and lingers throughout but the sweetness from the malt keeps the bitterness from being too abrasive. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry finish. Light alcohol taste. This one is good but a palate wrecker and it would be hard to drink more than one.

3.3
tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Can. A large off white head on a clear orange body. Aroma is mostly pine, some mango fruitiness, a bit of mild onion in there as well. Taste is sweet and bitter with the bitterness winning out. Flavor is pine, some grapefruit pith, nondescript sweetness. Bitterness is a little harsh at times. Medium body and mild carbonation. Alcohol is very well concealed. Finishes clean and bitter. Okay but I’m glad it was a single can purchase.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2010
355 mL can. Huge pine, lemon, alcohol and brown sugar in the aroma. Very distinctive. The pine is crazy big. The flavour has lots of stuff going on, ever evolving as it warms. It goes from all pine, alcohol and bittersweet citrus, to toasted caramel and grapefruit, to peach and grapefruit. Lingering, bitter finish. Medium-full body, and medium-low carbonation. Very distinctive brew.

3.9
chrisv10 (17937) - DENMARK - JUN 1, 2010
Can. Dark amber/orange with medium size off-white head. Flavour is malt, caramel, fruit and hops.

3.5
Beer5000 (6625) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2010
12oz can.. Clear, dark orange body with a decent off-white head. Aroma is strong and quite unusually, dominated by pine and sweet malt, also some grapefruit, flowers and onion. Flavor is sweet, quite bitter and the same strange fruit flavor with pine, onion, citrus and liver paste. Interesting, unusually but too sweet and the summit hops might not be my favorite.
