Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: natelocc787 on 01-15-2010

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: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Hazy, orange-copper with a quarter-inch head made up of homogeneous, tiny, white bubbles. Looks like a classic DIPA.

S: Very piney in the nose with a nice dose of citrusy hops. Orange is dominant in the citrus department.

T: This is OBs crowned jewel of hops, no matter what the G'Knighters say. A beautiful blend of grapefruit, orange, lemon and pine, this DIPA completely encaptures the style. A sweet buoquet of flavors up front leads to a wonderfully bitter finish and aftertaste. Outstanding.

M: Not a very highly carbonated beer, but sticky and resinous, as per the style. Very sweet, mouthcoating in a good way and easy to drink.

O: I honestly don't understand why Gordon/G'Knight gets so much more attention. I love G'Knight, but the Gubna is a near perfect example of an American DIPA.

Reviewed from notes...summer 2010

12oz can poured into a Perfect Pint glass. A huge, 3 fingers of buttery foam formed on top of a hazy, honey gold body. The bubbles stuck around, leaving trails on the glass walls.

The nose is a 50/50 mixture of sweet caramel malts and piney resin. The backbone is a sweet, honey like aroma.

The malts hit your palate first. They turn bitter as the hops com through in the middle. A woody, booziness takes over at the finish, warming your throat.

The mouth feel is on the thicker side of medium, clingy with moderate carbonation.

This is tasty and somewhat complex, but pretty darn hot. Worth trying for sure, but not as drinkable as the top offerings in this style.

A- a vigorous pour into a stone levitation tulip resulted in about an inch of dense creamy off-white foam with a yellowish tint. the hazy body of this beer is a vibrant golden orange when held up to the light, and a less illuminant banana peel yellow up against the computer screen. for such big abv, the head holds nicely and it settles with hundreds of little pits and pinholes but leaves barely a speck of lace.

S- absolutely huge hoppy aroma. grapefruit, orange,mango, passion fruit and lime with a touch of pine sap. subtle meatiness and some motor oil like aromas float out with the tart citrus. something herbaceous is in there too, overlaying some sweetness from the malt. showcasing the summit hop works very well here.

T- 100 IBUs... sure it's not 120? as this beer sits on the palate for about a second, the hop blitz begins. blistering bitterness brings grapefruit, orange, pine, and passion fruit flavors right up through the sinuses and out the eyes. malt does little to stand in the way of this onslaught. toasty... slightly. sweet, yes, and thank goodness it is because that's the only thing holding the leash on this mongrel. i think i can perceive a minor rye spiciness, but if i didn't already know it was there, i wouldn't have ever guessed. as my palate becomes accustomed to the bitterness, damp wood and petroleum stuff reveals itself in a solvent, chemical, oddly savory sort of way. like pork cooked over charcoal with lighter fluid.into the finish, as bitterness fades, woodsy earthy malt character can finally push through and i seem to get a bit a tartness from the rye and toasty dark munich stands out. resinous hop flavor lingers on and on and nearly wears out its welcome. there's no evidence of alcohol. none. only hops. and apple juice.

MF- full, creamy juicy, plush, incredible. in this anagram, body:bitterness as bleu cheese:hot wings. it somehow softens the blow of this consensual discomfort, providing a pillow of relief to something so sharp and prodding. you know what's going to happen when you order those rocket fire hot wings and you know that the creamy dressing will be there to comfort you. the luscious body of this brew does the same. carbonation is nitro-tight and soft spoken. slick alcohol keeps its rolling. or is it the hop oil? feels like a ball of oil rolling on an ocean of my saliva. transcendental.

D- smells great, high point is the feel here, drinkability is borderline "WTF". 2/3 of the can and a buzz is sneaking up and i'm starting to not make sense. the promise of intense bitterness has been fulfilled although i think that other better DIPAs use a blend of hops for a reason. showcasing one is nice, very nice, and it's a good way to pick out and commit to memory a strain's qualities (especially when used in this quantity!), but there's flaws in all varietals, no hop is perfect, and i think that with the foundation this beer has, perhaps a summit/simcoe/amarillo would be in order...

Served in a snifter style glass 

A: golden, copper color, thin head that sticks to the glass in broken Lacey blobs, no bubbles emanating from within . 

S: hoppy although not the strong herbal fruity smell of other DIPAs.  it has a citrus (maybe lemon) hint and woody (cedar) scent.  

T: Sweet and then a peppery bitter flavor. 

D: this is ok DIPA. It has some interesting hard to describe flavor and doesnt pack the finish of other DIPAs.

Gubna begins with the kind of aroma that is usually found in expensive citrusy soaps guaranteed to wake you up after the apocalypse. Massive grapefruit and pine flavors rise from the can, not so much gliding through the nose as whipsawing it. These are accompanied by notes of sour green apple, pineapple, and sour cherry.

On the tongue, the brew is intensely hoppy, and for several seconds the tongue is so overwhelmed by grapefruit and (mainly) pine that lesser flavors are quite literally undetectable. Even after the better part of a half-minute, the hops still dominate, and only slowly peel back to reveal hints of lesser citrus notes, including the aforementioned apple and sour cherry. And really, that's about all: this beer is just hops, hops, hops, even well into the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, and carbonation is medium.

Overall, while this is one of the more extraordinary and extraordinarily hoppy beers I've tasted, I can't recommend this to anyone who thinks something even as basic as, say, a Harpoon IPA is too bitter; doing so would be equivalent to finding someone who likes playing with rubber bands and suggesting they bungee jump off the Eiffel Tower. If you truly, and I mean *truly* love hops, this is your beer. If not, you will truly, *truly* hate it.

This is the third Oskar Blues beer I've had. I've been very impressed by all of them. My brother bought Gubna and let me try one.

The head took a bit to form but it grew thick and creamy-foamy. You know, I rarely pour beers from cans into a glass so I'm having to figure out how best to do it. I can make a perfect pour with my eyes closed from a bottle but from a can I'm still working on it. :P Anyway, the off-white head fizzes away slowly and has good retention. The beer is a murky amber color. You can't see clearly all the way through.

The smell of the Gubna is very unique. There's a strong peppery aroma that tingles the nose. Lemon and pineapple fruitiness. There's also a woody aroma like it's been aged in a barrel...but not oak. There's an underlying straw/grassy smell and of course a pine resin sweetness. Really interesting, especially the peppery smell.

Taste has some brown sugar sweetness. Like the smell it's got a peppery character that I could feel on the top of my tongue and roof of my mouth. I got actual peppery heat/spice. It's not too bitter but the citrus acidity and the pepperiness add bite and tang. The woodsy flavor is throughout. The 10% ABV adds some boozy burn.

Gubna is on the lighter side of medium-bodied. It's syrupy up front but has a dry finish. Medium carbonation.

Gubna is very interesting. The pepper and woodsy smells and flavors are unique to it. I will say that it's not like other imperial IPAs I've had. It's unique but doesn't have that double punch of hops and sweet/fruity malts like the style usually brings out.

12 ounce can - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Canned On: 05-16-11.

Appearance: Pours out a hazy, orange-gold body with a lofty, foamy, near white head with not much head retention, though a fair amount of wispy lacing.

Smell: Toasted grains, gnarled grapefruit pith tossed with a few drops of triple sec, and store-brand dried onion soup mix.

Taste: Lightly toasted grains with a reasonable amount of spicy rye malt taste. Sweetish hints of cookie and light caramel. Pithy grapefruit and wild Georgians ramps alongside plenty of hop bitterness and some moderate alcoholic heat to give the tongue a good sear. Splash of Bellini. Spicy, bitter, onion-hinting finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body with a creamy, slightly sticky texture to it. Medium carbonation.

Overall: I've enjoyed most of the offerings I've tried from Oskar Blues, but this one, well, it just didn't do it for me. One and done for me.

Purchased a single of this while in Florida.
Canned on 4/21/2011

The beer has a mild haze to it that cleared nicely; GUBNA is a muddled straw color with warmer orange hues. Tall white head that quickly receded to half the original size, and then that cap of foam sat patiently for several minutes while I began typing this review. There are limited dabs of lace here and there.

Wow is this potent. Big aroma here, folks. At first large doses of resinous pine waft across the room. Then I began to smell angel food cake. This beer smells quite sweet from a distance of several feet. Upon closer inspection the nose is very malty. Bready and sweet, sort of how moist cornbread can be. Though the hops continue to waft in and out, the malt seems to overpower most of the time. I continue to get sweetness, that I again am associating with baked goods - only now I'm detecting white cupcakes, complete with icing.

The taste leads with bitterness, but quickly the malt takes over just as in the aroma. At times the flavor reminds me of 90 minute IPA, essentially a malt forward IPA with some sweetness to it. But this isn't nearly so refined, nor half as enjoyable. The hop flavor is mute - largely powdery bitterness, though some earthy and grassy notes are there to be found.

Very dry, and also very hot. There's a long lasting residual warmth deep in the throat.

Overall: Hmm, this is mildly entertaining, but soon enough I am bored and annoyed by aspects of it. As a DIPA there are far too many superior examples out there. Despite all of the perceived heft 100 ibu's might have, the beer is exercising little of the might so many hops ought to impart.

Poured from a 12oz can into a Sierra Nevada Hop Tulip.

Gubna has always been an interesting beer in terms of public reception, it's really a love it or hate it kind of beer, which is bizarre for a big DIPA like this. It really comes down to the hopping - this is a huge single IPA when it comes down to it, it's all Summit hops. The appearance here is great, it's a nice hazy straw color crested with a huge head that retains and laces great. The aroma is absolutely awesome. The finest quality of Summit hops is their aroma, and this brew doesn't disappoint. It's got a huge nose: big, dank citrus (primarily grapefruit) and piney hops. The taste is quite good, it goes down sweet, with citrus and tropical fruits at first, with a sort of candied hops kind of feel. Then, some of the piney aspects make themselves known, but they're just a supporting role. It's a very bright brew, but with a big hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel is great, it's full-bodied and coating, with a spot-on carbonation level. The drinkability? It's absolutely great, especially for the high ABV. Overall, Gubna is really a winner. It's just an outstanding DIPA, and I really can't see how someone who would like, say, Maharaja wouldn't like this. I know plenty of people say "onion" with it comes to this brew, but I don't get any. It's got to be a personal reaction thing with the Summit hops.

Picked up a 12oz can in a Whole Foods in Whitebread, WA. Enjoyed in my new Fish pint glass in a splendid Central Oregon campsite.

This beer pours a cloudy muddled golden yellow colour, with tons of teeming, frothy, voluminous, foamy (you get the idea) eggshell white head, which settles slowly and steadily, eventually rendering a nice thick bike chain of lace around the glass. It smells of soft, almost bready, caramel, citrus rind, and pine hops. The taste is sweet caramel, and a strong musty, earthy, leafy hop character. The carbonation is on the low side, the body pretty full and smooth. It finishes with a rather underwhelming uptake of that weird mustiness.

Not really what I expected - the hops seem to be off - no clean, crisp citrus/pine effect here, just an earthy dullness that overrides the other universal attractive attributes - a good looker, that holds its booze very well. Which means, of course, no lasting desire to engage.

Clear pale golden colour with a smooth long lasting white head. Fair lacing.

Light tropical fruit, mango and pine aroma with a hint of something like garlic.

Big fruity flavour with lots of passion fruit and mango. There is a hint of onion but for me the Summit hops are really tasty. Very light malt.

Medium body and moderate carbonation. Solid.

For me this is one of the best IIPAs I've had. The flavours are really good with some great tropical fruit notes and really light malt.

Poured from a can into a pint glass, canned on 5-16-11 on the bottom.

Poured a nice hazy orange color with a 2 finger white head which has good retention and leaves a nice lacing. This smells mostly of citrus and pine hops a little malt in the background. The feel is medium with expected carbonation, lots of hops coat the mouth. The taste is pretty good, there is an initial sweetness, maybe some orange, grapefruit and citrus followed by lots of a dual sweet / high bitterness on the way down. Overall a pretty good beer, I prefer a little less sweetness but that seems to happen a bunch with this style.

This beer pours a hazy orange-yellow color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into a thing cap of foam that lingers. The aroma is of rotten grapefruit and pine resin. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with a strong bitterness that masks some of the rotten fruit character. There is also a strong alcohol heat in the finish. The mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this is an average beer at best. With so many DIPAs out there I cannot see myself revisiting this one.

purchased at cable beverage 7/11/11 growler

Appearance: This beer pours a gorgeous burnt orange color with awesome clarity and a nice full head. The head receded to leave moderate spotty lacing and a thin layer of foam resting on the surface of the beer.
Smell: Spice and hops are the first aromas that I smelled followed by sweet malt, citrus and pine. There are a few unique aromas in this beer that I couldnt put my finger on
Taste: The flavor followed the aroma pretty closely with a little more roundness. I got lots of sweet caramelized malts with a full punch of citrus and spice, almost a citrusy, caramelized spiced syrup. There is definitely a presence of alcohol and smoke in this beer as well.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full to full bodied with adequate carbonation to carry this big beer and a nice lingering sweet, and bitter finish.
Drinkability: This beer is more of a sipper than one for a session, but if you have the fortitude, this beer is good enough to drink a few.

12oz. can with a born on date of 4-11-11 poured into a tulip glass.

Thick foamy head (about 2 fingers worth) sits atop a light burnt orange ale. Sweet malt in the nose. The taste is dominated by caramel malts. Sweet and thick, syrupy. Bitterness comes through, pine sappy, grapefruity bitterness, without any real hop leaf presence. Medium bodied, with medium carbonation, provides a sharp alcohol sting in the back of the throat. Didn't really stand out, but I'd probably buy it again in a pinch.

Poured into a tulip.

Appearance- Pours a orangeish yellow, a bit hazy. A thin two finger head dissipates to about a half a finger in a few seconds. Decent lacing or alcohol legs.

Smell- Strong pineapple, very juicy and refreshing. A slight medicinal smell. Not much else, mainly dominated by the tropical fruits.

Taste- An initial malty sweetness is almost immediately dominated by a ton of bitterness. A little of the tropical fruit in there, with pineapple and mango. This is overshadowed by the bitterness all the way through. The finis is long with, once again, a lingering hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and moderate carbonation. Slight effervescent sting early on.

This beer is too one-dimensional for me. Strong flavors of bitterness overshadow the nicer, but more subtle, aspects of the beer. No depth or layers here.

Finally picked up a 4-pack a couple weeks ago. I’ve been searching for this beer for quite a while.

Look: Poured a hazy dark yellow with a thick 3 ½” finger white head. Couldn’t pick up on the carbonation level due to the low clarity of the beer (may be chill haze).

Smell: Floral bite. Nice citrus hoppiness. Some sweet grapefruit. I’m afraid the huge head may have kept in most of the aroma on this one. That head was really hanging on.

Taste: The taste was extremely mild from what I was expecting since Oskar Blues is noted for their extremely pungent and bitter offerings. I picked up on some caramel at first, then a floral bite with a bitter sweet aftertaste. I think the thick creamy mouth feel really creates a mellow palate. Even the alcohol heat is incorporated extremely well into this brew.

This is real close to being a top 3 imperial IPA for me. Of course I’ve never been disappointed from anything I’ve had from Oskar Blues so far. I defiantly see why the price is a little high on this particular beer. For a higher ABV, this one is not boozy at all and is certainly balanced enough to be considered a ‘multi-purpose’ imperial (if that makes sense).

2nd review on BA
Can to New Belgium snifter
Canned: 5.31.2011

A: Burnt orange - slightly golden on the edges. Vigorous pour, but medium/small head which faded quickly.

S: Sweet citrus/floral hops with a hint of caramel. Pleasant to the nose.

T: Similar to smell, but more pronounced hop-character on the front end. Citrus and pine round-out by a slight hint of malt, but mostly bitter all throughout.

M: Full-bodied - thick, creamy, and smooth. Slow to move down the tongue, but good.

O: I've had better, but I've had worse. I enjoy this beer for what it is. Very tasty and refreshing. I'd like to try it on-draft and fresh to see if my thoughts are comparable. Simply put...enjoyable!

Plus, like all Oskar Blues' brews...easy to bring on hiking, camping and/or bike touring trips due to weight/size.

Poured a hazy straw-golden color from a 12 oz can, with ABV printed on the can.
Nice one finger foamy frothy head that slowly dissipates to a film.
Aroma was predominantly hoppy, with the floral hops making their presence felt from the minute the can was cracked open.
Hints of malt aroma coming through which are again taken over by the strong floral hops.
All hops in the flavor and taste too, and just the right amount of bitterness for my palate, and what I expect from a DIPA.
The alcohol does make it's presence felt by it's warming effect.
However, this is a very drinkable ale. This is bound to satisfy the proverbial 'hop-head' to the hilt.
One of the best DIPA's packaged in a can.
Definitely worth trying, especially by all hop-heads.

607th Review on BA
Can to Snifter/Tulip Hybrid
Canned 3-18-11

App- A dark orange with a lot of yellow. A very quick to recede three finger head with a great big deal of nice of leg and lace.

Smell- Mixed and matched hops with malts and a bit of stale orange peel. Smells pretty good though.

Taste- The taste somewhat follows the nose than takes a huge dive. A gigantic malt bomb with only a touch of balance to it. Some citrus, some hops just more of it would be good.

Mouth- Medium bodied and Medium carbonated. Leaves just a thick malt with no fruit or hops. Citrusy, piney, resin. Nothing

Drink- A welcome extra but just a tad old. Ill have to find a store that does single cans and try to find a MUCH fresher can of this. If this is how it is all the time, I probably wont come back.

Pours a golden to slightly orangish color with a white head that did not last very long. It appears to have some chill haze. The aroma is huge: grassy and citrusy american hops with some clean, sweet malt aroma. The taste starts with big hops, some perceived bitterness from hops and alcohol, and finishes with some sweetness. The bitterness really dances on your tongue. The mouthfeel is smooth and medium with a slight alcohol warming. This is a drinkable Imperial which is an important quality of Imperial IPA's. It isn't nearly as complex as some but a clean, enjoyable, and well crafted beer.

poured from a can into a pint glass

A: a very light amber/orange with a hint of yellow on the edges, quick dissipating head with a bit of lacing

S: sweet, a more sweet smell than I'm used to with an IPA, but not in a bad way a bit of earthiness smell as well, not sure I would call it peat, but earthy for sure

T: Good, nice bitterness up front with a followup of the sweet malty, and a just a bit of creaminess in the middle to end, but the end note is definitely switches back to bitter

O: A good beer, interesting take on an Imperial IPA, really enjoyed it and like the complexity and mix of taste, malty but hard IPA as well, very good

This beer has officially made me a fan of Oskar Blues Brewery, really like this and their 'Old Chub' Schotch Ale.
