5/18/2010: I have yet to be disappointed by any of Oskar Blue’s beers so far. Ten Fidy, Old Chub, Dale’s Pale Ale… all good stuff. Apparently Gubna is a beer you either love or hate. Kind of like bleu cheese; you either love it or hate it. Gubna only uses one type of hop (Summit), which is pretty atypical for any kind of IPA these days.

I crack it open, and honestly it smells like body odor. You know that smell that gets stuck to you anytime you eat anything with onion? That smell was present also. The taste was again, onion and garlic, and a little tiny bit of a normal hop flavor. Tons of malts made this very thick and goopy. I can appreciate a beer that tries to be different, but this was a bit painful getting down. I love onion and will eat it with almost anything, but I don’t want that flavor in my beer.

Picture of the day: Why So Serious?
