GUBNA Imperial IPAGUBNA Imperial IPA
BEER INFO

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

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).

A big thanks to ricoch3t for this extra. A 355ml can poured into my favorite chalice. A big frothy white head sits on a clear orange brew.

Smell is of sweet citrus fruit with a slight tinge of alcohol.

Taste is of grapefruit, tropical fruit and is fairly sweet. A fairly full and syrupy mouthfeel for a DIPA.

Not a bad DIPA for the most part, it's a little on the sweet side. I would drink this again if given the chance.
