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).

This beer is chocked full of malty goodness, lip smacking good. With the right amount of citrus and bitters. At 10% ABV, undoubtedly from the humongous amount of malt, this brew isn't to be quaffed although it's drink-ability invites you to do so. Rather take your time as you would with a fine brandy or cognac.
