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).

12oz can
A) Pours with a two finger head that settles slowly. Copper colored body. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Rich hop aromas. Peppery. Pine. Subtle "sweaty sock" smell ... Pungent.

M) Slightly creamy. Full bodied, thick and chewy. Alcohol warmth.
O) A decent imperial IPA.

Pine, citrus, bread aroma notes waft up through a dark gold body covered with a thick, sticky head. Strong hop bitterness and boozy flavors dominate the taste with malt flavors playing a minor role. Heavy mouthfeel with a biting dryness.

An intense, interesting beer. The one-hop (Summit) character is the predominate feature overall, but may be overbearing for people other than die-hard hop heads. Still, this is a good option when you're looking for something other than your average IPA (or DIPA, for that matter).
