Purchased a 4-pack from Total Wine, Tustin.
A- Poured from a 12oz can into a Bruery tulip, GUBNA pours clear with a golden, amberish-orange hue. An average pour yields a foamy white head that settles to a fine layer over the beer as drapes of sticky lacing cling to the glass after every sip.
S- Oily pine resin, juicy tropical fruits, pungent grapefruit, and floral, musty notes of cannabis rest on a bed of husky malts. The big alcohol is very evident as the beer warms up.
T- The hop flavors run the gamut of pine, grapefruit, pineapple, and passion fruit, while the malt backing provides very little balance to the searingly hoppy profile. A very dry finish leaves some citrus rind bitterness on the palate, but not for very long. The taste is just boozy enough to be manageable, and it actually kicks up the hop flavors and aromas much like some of my favorite DIPA's -- Maharaja and many of Port's offerings.
M- The beer feels oily and slick with a thick, almost syrupy texture. The carbonation bubbles are very fine but provide enough balance to the viscous mouthfeel.
D- This is a great DIPA. It's pretty drinkable even with it's rich hop bitterness and 10% ABV.

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.
