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).

Poured GUBNA into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours a cloudy golden with one and half finger of white creamy head.

S - Nice tropical flavors fill the nose. Pineapple, citrus, some grapefruit with bitter hops.

T - Wow, nice flavors of this Imperial IPA. It has grapefruit, citrus, pineapple. It has some smooth orange and more grapefruit mid palate. It has a touch of alcohol on the aftertaste.

M - A smooth creamy Imperial, medium to full on the mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

O - Another fine brew from Oskar Blues. Recommended ! Cheers!
