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.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a light copper color. This features a nice head, about two fingers high and off-white colored. The retention is quite strong given its gravity, and the texture is nice and fluffy. S: It’s dank as fuck - this really brings back memories of Devil Dancer. But there’s also a lot of malt sweetness to it, as well. On the other hand, I seem to note a lot of alcohol, unfortunately. This one could really go any way in the flavor profile... T: Much sweeter than what the nose indicated. It opens with a lot of caramel, toffee, and dark fruit sweetness. Alcohol is prevalent but not remotely harsh, however it is pretty intrusive. Dank, resiny hops (and yes, even some onion) are only a subtle backing to all of the malt sweetness. Ah well, it’s not exactly fresh, so I can’t complain too much. M: Sweet, but not that heavy - or even that resinously bitter, really. Given its sweetness, it’s pretty easy to down for a 10% DIPA. It could use a bit more carbonation to help cleanse the finish better. O: I’ll have to re-try this one fresh. It’s pretty much turned into a World-Class Barleywine™ at only three months, only with "Sweet and Simplistic" replacing the "World-Class" part.

Crowler acquired at the source. Pours bright clear orange with a foamy off white head that fades to a persistent cap, good lacing. This has a resiny, fruity nose with some malty notes. Flavors are juicy bitter citrus, caramel malts, grain. Sweet midpalate, medium carbonation. Long lingering finish with a bitter orange kick about halfway through. Excellent stuff.

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

Can, unfortunately I’ve had this one a few times over the years. Seems like its still a rough one after trying it recently. Pours an orange shade with average head. Nose is sweet malt, booze heat, fire, spicy rye and old hops. Flavor most of same with an astringent close and

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!

DeliriumT (537) - 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
