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: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass, orange amber colored with a short white head that lingers leaving good lacing, slightly hazy

S: citrus hops, orange, lemon, pineapple

T: quite bitter up front, lemon and pine, middle is really sweet, pineapple, finish is pine, flavors are not overly complex, good balance

M: heavy, high carbonation, does not seem at all as high as 10% ABV

O: good balance between bitter and sweet, flavors are simple and straightforward
