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.

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.
