From my tasting notes: The beer poured a golden amber with a generous white head. I got a hint of onion in the aroma like I had heard, but more of a sweet onion with a base of sweet citrus and tropical fruit. The taste was a bitter hop monster that erupted in my mouth like biting into a grapefruit rind. The Gubna was big, bold and full of hop dominance with a blast of grapefruit and dank resinous hops. The rye malt gave the brew a spicy malt balance and a great lingering taste on my tongue. This had a very strong balanced bitterness that was delicious and surprisingly smooth and easy to drink. It got a little boozy as it warmed, but that’s to be expected with such a high ABV.

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.

very strong malty aroma. gold in color with huge long lasting head. balanced but very strong malt and hop flavors. rich caramel malt flavors vs. piney resinous hops flavors. shawnmurphy (510) - 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. 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!
