GUBNA Imperial IPAGUBNA Imperial IPA

Brewed by:
Oskar Blues Grill & Brew
Colorado, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

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).

well, I have to say, i was a little put off by the initial smell of this one @ first, kind of like a locker room @ half time... anyhow, being a big fan of deviant dales and g'knight, I managed... The taste was quite hoppy and had a hint of spice.. alcohol present, but not overwelming @ all.... the lacing could be read like a book, and the finish wasn't so bad either... I probably wouldn't buy this again, but I would buy all the deviant dales I could find... I hope that makes up for a not so great review...

Cloudy yellow-gold, with a small white head.The nose on this had a lot of hoppy citrus, mainly grapfruit and even pineapple. A dry, bitter liquid pine flavor with citrus and grapefruit. The malty balance is there but the hops power through this beer.

12 oz can into my makers mark snifter.
A - pale yellow/orange, a bit lighter than I expected. not much head, but it lingers
S - hops, but not as much as I expected or hoped.
T - bitter, with a strong alcohol taste. boozy
M - a little sticky, numbs the tongue if you swish it around a bit.
O - not my favorite Oskar Blues brew. The alcohol - malt - hops balance is a little too far on the alcohol side for my taste. Extra point for the can.
