GUBNA Imperial IPA pours a clear vibrant golden color with a thin off white head.
smell is initially very sweet, with strong hop notes of citrus, like tangerine or grapefruit. i can get subtle notes of the 'fried onion' smell/taste that i have read, but it's mostly fruity.
taste is much of the same, with a very strong citrus hop bite and mango followed by the armpit-sweat like onion taste of the summit hops. im personally a fan of summit hops, though, so it's all good. there is a good amount of bitterness, though it's subtle, and not at all harsh. there is a strong malty sweetness that almost competes with the mango hops and creates a very strange 'sour' beer.
mouthfeel is good. remarkably sippable for a 10% beer.
while i love summit hops, the GUBNA isn't my favorite, and at the same price as TEN-FIDY, it's really not worth it for me to keep buying these. definitely props to OB for what they're doing, though.

4.13/5 rDev +8.4%

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.
