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.

BoydJustitz (58) - Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Clear dark yellow with a massive frothy white head. Aroma is moderate malty, massively hoppy. Flavor is mostly hops, heavy on the bitterness with a long duration, some fruity tones. Medium body, oily, light carbonation. A decent double IPA.

I got an old Gunba but it's still great - papaya, pineapple and mango with well disguised strength. A magnificent brew. Rated by BrewTom

shawnmurphy (263) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2017
12-ounce can pours a clear orange-gold color with a three-finger thick, foamy head that settles down to one finger after a few minutes, leaving behind lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is pineapple, mango, honeydew melon and hot buttered sweetbread. Flavor is all the above, but more so, plus candied orange, honey and caramel. Its both very sweet and very bitter, yet not cloying or astringent perhaps due to the addition of rye as a grain to give it a spiciness. Body is full, mouthfeel is oily and creamy with some prickly carbonation. This is a 1O percent ABV brew that drinks like its half its weight. Dangerous!

DeliriumT (536) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2017
Pours a mesmerising bright golden orange with little head. Aroma is a whack of lemon, lime, blood orange and caramel. A very noticeable sweetness in the bouquet. Flavour is a great balance of sweetness and hops. Neither overpowers the other. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ Craft Brew co Covent Garden. Amber with pure white head. An overwhelmingy hoppy nose. Caramel with every conceivable fruity aroma. Floral, pine and grass with something like rye. Nice balance of everything in excess. Long, sweet and excessively hoppy finish.
