COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"You can be my wingman anytime." -Iceman

In a veritable sea of India Pale Ales, what does it take to leap out from the rest? To us, the answer is Hop Gun IPA. Lift a pint – from first sniff to last sip, our flagship IPA drinks like an ode to hoppy goodness. Galena, Cascade, and Nelson Sauvin hops burst forth with an unmistakably heady aroma. Flavors of grapefruit, honey, melon, and pineapple mingle with a malt body that balances caramel and biscuit character with a pronounced dry finish.

Pairing Suggestions: Washed rind cheeses, chipotle chicken wings, Thai red curry, hoisin-glazed roast duck, Moroccan-spiced lamb chops, fresh-baked cherry pie.

humlelala (965) - DENMARK - JUN 17, 2014
(on tap @ Mikkeller & Friends) Pours a hazy, dark amber with off-white head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is toffee and candified fruit. Oily texture, medium to full body, medium carbonation and a balanced finish bordering on the sweet side. Alcohol is well integrated. Flavour follows the nose but yields more pineapple and peach as well as candy sugar. This is getting close to DIPA-land but manages to remain pleasant.

ThirstyBird (1519) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a light amber color with a light tan head. The smell is citrus, mango and grapefruit. The taste is Citrus, Grapefruit, some caramel ending dry with slight bitterness. Light/medium in body and it is nicely carbonated.

Really nicely done beer. Sample pour of deep gold to mild amber. Really nice aroma of citrus and pine resin. Clean, muted malt. Really healthy drinking, tropical fruit notes and medium to light malt background. Definitely hop forward though. Really enjoyable.
