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: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz Hop Grenade can (canned on 3/15/10...10 days ago). Poured into a Brooklyn snifter.

A - Pours a perfectly clear and bright, pale amber color with a short lasting finger of fine white head that settles to a thin collar and a skim coat on the surface. No lacing is left behind on the glass.

S - A quick swirl of the glass releases a huge hop aroma. Citrus is way up front with grapefruit leading the charge, a bit of sweet orange blossum and a strong pineapple presence round things out. A bit of pine also and maybe a very slight minty aroma too, but largely gets overshadowed by the citrus character. A soft, sweet malt aroma is way in the background, a bit breadiness in there.

T - Much like the aroma...huge hop flavor! Citrusy grapefruit, pineapple, pine...oh my, really good. Good and serious malt backbone...tons of body, a bit of sweet, a bit of caramel.

M - This is a nop notch double IPA...really full bodied with a light to medium carbonation level. Tons of resiny hops cover the every last inch of the mouth on every sip. Quite dry and the bitterness lasts forever after the swallow. Great stuff.

D - This is a great, great beer. Just a notch below the pliny's for me...but since they aren't available here, I think I will be buying this again and again (although $18/4pk is pretty steep). Still think it will be a staple in my fridge. My "new" favorite beer in a can, hands down.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aroma is intoxicating with scents of fresh cut grass, wet flowers, oranges and lemon citrus accents. Poured a clear amber with very little head and sticky lacing.

And then comes the less appealing aspect...messiness!

Heat is very noticeable and comes in at the end, while bitterness is harsh and hits early on and seamlessly transitions to alcohol heat. Grain sweetness is present, but overpowered throughout the whole taste. A resiny, orange, light grapefruit citrus hop flavor accented by some faint pineapple dominates with a tongue prickling lingering quality from the alpha acids. Finally, there is a vegetable like quality to the beer.

The beer has an oily mouthfeel and the medium carbonation level works well for the style. Bottom line is this beer is a laser guided Summit hops bomb straight to the mouth with no time for balance and hell bent on making your tongue beg for mercy. While the taste arguably isn't bad, my friend surprisingly drain poured his and said, "This beer tastes like body odor smells." With that being said, if unbalanced hops is what you crave, then look no further.

12oz can poured into a tulip glass.

A foamy whit head, sticky lacing yellow and gold ale with a very slight haze. This DIPA pour rather clear for the style....very pretty. I could dump this into a glass for one of my BMC drinking pals... they would not be the wiser except for the smell. There is no getting past the aromas of catty hops, fresh pine and lemon zest with grapefruit. Smelling GUBNA makes my pallet crave the hops. My mouth begins to water with the expectation of bitter, bitter hops. Oskar Blues delivers on the hops in bitterness and flavor. The first sip is twice the kick that the nose had moments ago. Alcohol and hops is all i can taste. I can detect no caramel or grain taste. This is a one dimensional brew...hops delivery vehicle, and I am in love. Grapefruit and lemon peels, and I swear I am finding very slight green onion. For the thin body and good amount of carbonation the aftertaste is minimal but bitter all the way. I have to say even at 10%ABV I find this very drinkable and could put more than 2 of these back. Tread lightly my fellow BA's when facing the GUBNA!

12oz can purchased as a four pack from Ye Olde Spirits Shoppe, Frederick, MD.

Poured into an imperial pint, formed a 1 1/4" off white head above the clear golden amber brew. Dense head lasts nicely, with lots of sticky lace. Aroma is dominated by funktacular pine hoppiness. Taste is quite sweet upfront, quickly giving way to the piney bitterness, which coasts through the close. Mouthfeel is smooth, even with the strong bitterness, and drinkability is great for the style. Yay, good beer, and yay good beer in cans!

Thanks to a good friend I got hooked up with this one.

This is a crystal clear, golden orange colored liquid. It has a very light amber cast to it. A thin head of white foam forms and the retreats. It leaves a nice surface covering bubble film. The lacing is in little clumps but is nicely sticky.

A very different nose than I was prepared for, being a DIPA/IIPA. Must be the Summit hops, which I am unfamiliar with. The nose is very floral, initially. After you get a sniff or two into it though, you find the cattiness coming out. It's the first time that I've actually found cat urine in the nose of a beer. Nice hints of caramel maltiness. Nice earthy hop notes, along with a good deal of pine. Some lighter citrus notes.

Very floral in the taste, also. The maltiness is rich and packed with caramels and brown sugars. Then you get a ton of hop presence on top of it. Lots of pine, some light citrus notes, mostly oranges, along with some pineapple and a slight hint of grapefruit. A nice level of peppery spiciness. There is a very light touch of bitterness in the back of the throat as you swallow. Other than that though, it is not bitter, just delicious.

This one is full-to-heavy bodied with a mild-to-light level of carbonation. It is very smooth in texture, which works well to balance to 'bite' of the hops. It has a nice level of creaminess, which I like.

This is quite the tasty beer, IMO. I'd have no problem drinking this on a fairly regular basis. I'm blown away by the fact that it's labeled as having 10.00%abv. It drinks like it's less than half of that.
Be careful with this one, people!

Pours a golden amber color with a bright white head with decent retention. Smells of grapefruit, pineapple, and pine.

The flavor is fantastic. Grapefruit, pine, pineapple, and mango blend together perfectly to make a delicious brew. A nice combination of bitter hops and sweet malt.

Medium bodied, low carbonation, the alcohol is well hidden. I can't believe it is 10% abv because it drinks so easily.

Let this beer start to warm a bit before drinking, it is superb then. (I know this is true of most beers, but is really true with GUBNA.)

This started out as a very good beer. Unfortunately a week later after I finished the fourth one I was sure I would never buy it again. Don;t get me wrong this beer was exactly as advertised, huge, super-hoppy double IPA. Too bad it was all Summit hops. All I could smell was pine, cattiness, pine oil and the taste was identical with the added qualities of parmesan and pepper.. I prefer a hop profile that has a citrus element of some sort to balance out the pine. If you like Maharaja or Green Flash Imperial IPA you will probably like this.

1.7/5  rDev -55.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1

Cloudy golden that's very close to piss colored, light off white head.

Skunky pine and moldy bread are most of what I smell.

Heavy pine with a touch of grapefruit and caramel.

Light and over carbonated.

I came into this with high hopes, as I love everything that Oskar Blues puts out, and was especially hyped knowing how good Gordon is. This was one of the worst disappointments in my beer drinking experience. I can hardly finish this single can, let alone the 4 pack I bought. This beer is way too unbalanced, and the flavors are not pleasant at all. The other cans may sit in my fridge for some time, as I am not impressed with anything about this beer.

On tap, served in a pint glass
A - highly filtered, very clear deep gold with a hint of red. tight head with little lace
S - ah hops, more earthy than citrus. lovely with no big hit of alcohol
T- just the right bitter with out being overboard. It was the finish that I didn't like so much. Almost a sulfer taste after the swallow.
M - good but slightly high on the carbonation
D - while glad I tried it, for the price there are others that I like better such as the Heavy Seas Big DIPA and the Maharaja. I wouldn't order it again. I was a little disappointed after hearing such good things about it

Review #400

a - pours a burnt orange color with a smallish ivory head, little retention with light lacing, very clear

s - big orange and apricot aromas mixed with heavy doses of pine and lighter notes of alcohol

t - big citrus flavors up front, orange and tangerine predominantly, midpalate comes with a heavy pine resin flavor, finish is more pine with lighter citrus notes and a decent amount of alcohol burn, the piney bitterness sits on your palate for quite awhile

m - medium-bodied with moderate carbonation, fairly dry on the finish, good deal of alcohol warming

d - not overly drinkable, fairly harsh on the palate with the intense bitterness and considerable alcohol presence

Decent DIPA overall, but, in my opinion, not close to the ranks of Pliny, Dreadnaught, Hopslam, etc. Actually, this reminds me of Exponential Hoppiness a bit.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The golden red ale poured easily into my pils glas with a slight head and the strong aroma of hops just came forward. I inhaled the fruity aroma with the pine accents as I went for the first taste.

I was wowed instantly by the strong smooth taste of malts, fruity esters, and the finishing tastes of hops that lingered for a long time afterward. The heavy thoughts of alcohol in the background came forward in the after taste (10% abv). Whew! Great DIPA.

I found this to be very easy to drink and thoughts raced to ideas about casks and kegs for this particular ale.

3.58/5  rDev -6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a golden honey color with three fingers of head that slowly dissipates, leaving decent lacing on the sides of my glass.

Smell - Skunky hop aroma at the forefront, followed with citrus zest such as pineapple and orange. It ends with some pine and resin - an almost spicy characteristic.

Taste - Ironically after letting this sit for a bit I get more of a caramel malty sweetness up front which is then followed by the hoppy/citrus flavors. As stated, almost a bit spicy in nature and it pricks the tongue from it (not from the carbonation).

Mouthfeel - Extremely creamy, just the right carbonation. Coats the mouth well.

Drinkability - Pretty drinkable for such a high ABV drink. I can barely taste the alcohol and there is only a slight warming on the way down. A pretty good DIPA, but after testing it head to head with PtE, there is no way I would ever get this if I have PtE readily available. This is over four dollars a can for 12 ounces, whereas PtE is less than five dollars for 16 ounces. Pliny not only tastes better IMO, but is cheaper than this. A good beer, but I will never drop 16+ dollars again for a four pack.

Beautiful hue, floral aroma's with bitter hop and soft herbal notes. Flavors explode with edgy bitter hop, soft undertones of vegetable, and herbal blossom, followed by lingering subtleties of fruit that gradually grow through out the finish. Hints of biscuit dance around in the underbelly, with the sharpness of the hop prevailing from start to finish.

12 oz can. This brewery might be too obsessed with cannign their beers.

Pours a golden/orange, west coast/hopslam style look with a rather thin white head.

Shit, it is bursting with smell, huge tropical fruit and citrus blast with some raw hop smell which is typical for cans it seems. The tropical is very peachy/pineappley. It smells very sugary.

It has an immense fruit flavor: ripe peach, pineapple, grapefruit and a slight piney bitterness and some grain on the back end. The pineapple personally is a bit off putting but it works here with the other tropical fruit flavors. But alas coating all of this fruit is a horde of tomato and onion veggie surprise which makes it undrinkable past the first few sips. It isn't too bitter, a balanced DIPA, but a vegetastic one.

I love a canned beer, and this one is very nice. Poured from the can into a snifter, beautiful copper/orange color with an off-white head that laced well and stuck around a good bit before dissipating to a cap and crown. Quite complex aroma with a bitter pine note prevailing slightly over the rye. Taste is nicely balanced with the rye being maybe just a slight bit more prevalent than the hops. Feel is very smooth with a medium body and slightly less than average carbonation. Great drinking beer even for the ABV.

A - Pours a deep gold with close to an inch of thick off-white head that lingers for a while before leaving a good lacing

S - resinous, hints of melon, a bit too herbaceous, almost got a tomato like smell in there too, not unpleasant but certainly strange

T - good mix of pine and citrus, a lot of caramel sweetness mixed in too with a pronounced cantaloupe flavor. the finish lingers for a while, almost spicy with a slight alcohol burn

M - pretty ideal for this style I thought. Just the right amount of carbonation and not too thick, but coated the mouth well.

Overall, I'm probably not gonna pick this up again for the price, but it was a surprising and enjoyable brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Can poured into a tulip glass. Pours orange golden with an off-white head around two inches thick. Fairly good retention and moderate levels of lacing. Beading from the carbonation and very bright (no cloudiness at all). The aroma is staunchly sticky with nostril scorching hopping, lemony, and cookielike.

The flavor pops with overdone floral notes, geranium, leaves. Bitter resinous notes on the midpalate carry through to the finish where they pair with a fair amount of cookie/caramel malts, though the hops never get to the background here. Plenty of hops here, though not the greatest balance of them. The feel is fairly moderate to thick with a nicely tempered carbonation that has this bordering on creamy, surprisingly restrained for a canned IPA there. I like the idea of single hopped beers but this beer suffers from it despite showcasing the Summit variety.

The Gubna is worth trying, but this could never run for President with Pliny. Go for the single before dropping $17 on a four pack of this. Not much reason for me to buy this again when I can get better IPAs much cheaper. I'll take the rounder flavor of Gordon over the Gubna too.

A: The pour is a light amber color with a moderate white head and some streaks of lacing.

S: A strong fruity hop aroma with nice notes of grapefruit and pineapple. A fair amount of pine as well, along with some sweet caramel and perhaps a touch of alcohol.

T: The flavor is full of bitter grapefruit and pine followed by some tropical fruit sweetness. As with Gordon, there is also a fair malt component to the beer and maybe a bit of alcohol warmth on the finish.

M: The body is medium with a full and tingly carbonation.

D: A good but not amazing DIPA, especially for the price. I really enjoy some of the Oskar Blues beers, but why buy a 12 oz can of Gubna for $4-5 when I can buy half a liter of Pliny the Elder for that much?

4 pack obtained through trade with tturaiders.
Nice amber/silver poured can into Chimay goblet glass. Very bright clear golden color with a big pillowy head that stuck around for a couple minutes. Fair amount of sticky lacing left on the glass. I find the hop smell to be very appealing. I never really knew what summit hops specifically smelled like but I certainly do now. Very floral nose and the summits are intense. Taste is nice, big hop smack in the mouth followed by bitterness. The hop flavor really comes through in this beer and the hop taste really sticks around. Light mouthfeel with an oily hop coating on your tongue. Drinakbility is good. Hard to believe it's 10% abv. I sense no hint of alcohol at all, but I certainly feel it after 2 :-) Nice beer from Oskar Blues and I will buy when I see it locally.

Beer poured into an imperial pint glass. Beer is dark yellow and clear. Carbonation is low and the bubbles rise through the beer slowly. Forms a thin white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Looks great.

Strong hop aroma but not a lot of malt. Smells great. Nice piney hop aroma, really nice.

Sweet, medium body, lots of bitterness on the backend. The hop flavor is good on the palate too. It finishes nicely. Second taste, not a lot of midpalate character and the carbonation in the mouth is low. Overall its a nice DIPA. Not too malty, not chewy, good bitterness and nice balance. Sweet.

Nice DIPA bordering greatness.

Presentation: 12 oz. can. Burgundy, and metallic silver design highlighting the name of the brew over a small mountain horizon. The top of the can includes a few bragging words about the brew and beer inside a can, and the back notes the brief liner "Give the Gubna a Harrumph. Harrumph." Lacks a clear or typical canned date with note at the bottom ("Allow myself to introduce -illegible-self") but offers a batch code from where one could figure a date (0 02 25 A 2 B A), and notes Alc. by Vol. (10.o%) Served on a tulip glass.

A - Pale to medium amber pour, with a good 1" frothy head, fair retention, some lacing and surface memory.

S - Rich hoppy range, resin and floral with a full rich bitter tone. Smell would be far more remarkable if it were not for a final feel, as the brew settles a bit, that offers a rather strong herbal and almost unpleasing finish.

T - The flavor is a rich hoppy profile held by a sturdy malty base, resin, touch of citrus, more resin, and a herbal touch... The herbal touch works for the most part although at the end it hints at the heavy-handed touch found on the smell. It does not quite give a dent to the brew but sure holds it a bit back.

M - Medium-full body with good and rich carbonation, intriguing balance that is only hindered by the herbal-medicinal rough touch, which luckily is only an undercurrent.

D - So close, feels great for the most part, and even with that off touch it is a rather enjoyable brew.

Notes: Pity, it really got me excited early on and in the end did not quite make it. And I mean it did not quite make it as one of the top-notch DIPAs out there, and for most of the brew I felt it was getting there. It's a new release and sure deserves a try as brewing of new batches goes along to see if there is any difference. I also agree that it reminds me quite a bit of Avery's Maharaja but in the end the completely rounded act is not there. Great addition in any case from Oskar Blues.
