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).

look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1

A - rich and attractive amber with viscous character

S - eesh. very strange. very solvent like aroma - like nail polish remover, spray paint, or something equally unpleasant. An odd hop aroma too - like metal and garlic.

T - this was disappointing. Very solventy taste - like rubbing alcohol mixed with paint thinner. Doesn't taste natural - very odd. Hops only seem to add to the oily and phenolic taste. I will say - this is a totally unique brew but its unique in its awfulness.

M - a parade of chemical tastes makes the thick viscous texture unappealing.

D - no can do. not for me. And this beer was very expensive which adds to the let down

Serving type: can

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.
