Notes: 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).

355 ml can, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 10.0%. Orange colour, moderate off-white head. Lovely aroma of piney hops, smells like a pine forest, also some fruity notes (oranges). The flavour is a massive attack of fruity and piney American hops, fairly light bodied and dry for its strength.

Wonderful aroma, thick clumpy lacing. Taste is oranges and other citrus, a hint of cough syrup sweetness, with a smidge of alcohol warmth. Be careful, this one will sneak up on you.

Pours hazy light amber. Foamy, medium, white head fades slowly with light lacing.

Smells caramel malt, Tropical, pine and citrus peel.

Tastes pineapple, mango, grapefruit,, citrus peel, fruit and bready malt. Finish is dry with a piney linger. Medium body and smooth lower carbonation.

Can poured into a tulip, the appearance was hazy burnt golden orange color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Some light lace.
The aroma had some mango/papaya super sweetness rolling over a sturdy caramel/toffee malt base. Some crackery type of arrangement playing with some marmalade sweetness.
The flavor was moderately sweet through the prior mentioned aromas guiding the aftertaste to be fairly malty.
The palate was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV did feel appropriate.
Overall, so many DIPA's on the market these days which makes me think well, maybe this is one of those "old school DIPA's."

On tap at Bonds Tavern in West Orange. Pours an amber, tawny hue with minimal frothing. Medicinal aroma replete with hints of hops and honey. Slick mouthfeel. Not recommended.

4x12 of 3 week-old cans for $13.99. Can poured into willy glass. Super clear, golden-amber with a finger of white head that leaves spotty lace. Smell is a mix of citrus rind, pineapple syrup, pine and malt. Taste follows with a big helping of malt and some citrusy tones. Mouth is medium-full, fairly soft and good carbonation. Overall, I'm glad I tried this. It's good and really packs a wallop.
