Imperial IPA all the way, baby. My favorite style of beer just became more awesome. I love when I can continue to solidify my list of favorites with more proof that they’re awesome. Gubna poured a clear pale orange, almost peachy color, with a thin eggshell head breaking into wispy lacing and thin patches. Sticking my nose into it, I came away with pine, a weedy marijuana/hemp, and a zesty bite of bold pink grapefruit. All together it was very bright, but dank, and I had a hard time finding anything sweet in it - hops all the way. Once in my mouth, the pine dominated my palate, closely followed by waves of lemon-rind hops, grass, orange peel, and pink grapefruit. By the end I had a thick, bitter aftertaste of dry pine on my tongue, regardless of the lighter mouthfeel. The carbonation added a nice spicy twang to all of the hops, almost rendering it "springy." I found that it reminded me of SanTan’s Count Hopula with all of the pine and grapefruit running amok, which is in no way a bad thing as I find Count Hopula to be one of my favorite beers. If you need a way to wake up in the morning, skip your coffee and dip your tongue in this - note: I’m completely downplaying the punchy bitterness here.
I got an old Gunba but it's still great - papaya, pineapple and mango with well disguised strength. A magnificent brew.

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. It’s 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!

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!
