Sweet Christ, this beer is an experience. The Gubna weighs in at 10.0 abv but that is readily masked by the 100+ IBU. It's nasty with hops...absolutely filthy with hops. Hops are, botanically speaking, closely related to other cannaboids (a group know for their chemical complexity) and this beer brings that side out immensely. In smelling and tasting, I can't help but compare it to the smell of a certain other cannaboid, in that it reeks but in an amazingly good way. So throw on your favorite crunchy groove and pop open the top; Oskar Blues has put out another deceptive can of awesomeness.
