American Double / Imperial IPA |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
Gubna was bred from Oskar Blues Brewery’s hankering to confront 100+ IBUs by cranking up the complexity of hops by pouring Cascade on top of copious amounts of Summit, then balancing that with a backbone of German Dark Munich Malt and Rye Malt. GUBNA’s post-fermentation dry-hopping with both hops allows this monstrosity to gently coax the citrus rind and grapefruit aroma while providing a rye malt-induced, spicy-yet-round middle, and a brisk, clean bitter finish (10 percent ABV, 100+ IBUs).

3.83/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A- Pours a nice orange golden color with a quickly receding head. Bits of lace around the glass but nothing special.

S- Intense citrus and orange peel with some pineapple and hints of pine. This beer smells wonderful. Its a blast to your nose and it's the best part of the beer for me.

T- Strong herbal bite up front, bitter floral hops with some thick malt sweetness. I got a medicinal flavor and a bit of cloying sweetness that wasn't as pleasant. The flavor stays in the palate for quite some time and I start to taste some orange peel. The alcohol is certainly present in this one, phenols all up in yo nasal cavities!

M- Heavy, creamy feeling. I think the carbonation is a bit harsh. Again, this one coats and stays in your mouth for quite a while.

D- Average drinkability. Would I drink this again, for sure. Would I keep it in my stable? probably not. It's a very good beer but the high ABV sure is noticeable and I'd probably take a Dale's over this most days of the week.

Pour is golden with white head. Sticky and lingering lace.

Lemon zest with grapefruit and pine in the nose.

Spivey punch in the initial sip. Both from the hops and malts. I love the blend of rye and dark Munich. This really adds to the complexity of the hop bill. Easy drinking with medium mouthfeel and a sharp bite from carbonation.

Some more pine and grapefruit in the aftertaste with a dry enough finish.

Overall a solid imperial IPA. Doesn't blow you away but very solid throughout.
