Oskar Blues Brewery to release GUBNA Imperial IPA March 1st 2010

GUBNA Imperial IPA will be release by Oskar Blues Brewery on March 1st. The seasonal release (March through October / off setting the cult favorite Ten FIDY Imperial Stout) continues to push the boundaries of what people expect out of a canned beer & will certainly be the hoppiest beer in a can.

Emphasizing that complexity of character can arise from simple elements, this ale is made with 3 malts and 1 hop. Its light amber color and slightly spicy malt character are derived from the use of German Dark Munich Malt and Rye Malt respectively. North American 2-row barley combines with the other grains to lay the foundation for the hop onslaught to come. Summit hops are used exclusively in the boil for bitterness, flavor and aroma but it doesn't end there. Post-fermentation dry hopping allows the 10% ABV monstrosity to gently coax the citrus rind and grapefruit aroma to join the 100 IBUs already present. This beer will greet you with a pungent citrus blast, provide a spicy yet round middle and finish with a brisk, clean bitterness.

4-Packs of 12oz Cans & Draft

December through St Paddy's Day used to be Guiness time for me. But Ten Fidy broke me of that habit, and I can't wait to try the Gubna.
