3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hop Gun IPA has a thick, off-white head, an opaque, brilliant orange appearance, and a bit of lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of citrus and white bread, and the flavor is that citrus-style hop oil, riding with sweet white bread and white bread crust in the back seat. Mouthfeel is medium, and Hop Gun finishes puckering and dry. RJT

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy copper with white head. Great strong aroma of melon, grapefruit, pineapple, caramel and toffee. Flavor is moderately sweet with a mild to moderate bitterness. A little too malt forward on the taste. Flavors of caramel, toffee, earth, and melon. Overall an average to above average IPA.

Good IPA, not too west-coast, thankfully (of course it is brewed on the east coast). Fun bitter snap. Very fruitful, nice balance. Thanks Bernie.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer lacked what I look for in an American IPA. No beautiful aroma and way too much malty taste. Not flavor in the middle. Pretty much on the wrong side of mediocre. Caramel. Not smooth. Kind of cloying on the palate. Old perhaps as no date was visible which I hate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, deep golden color, off-white lacing. Hints of grapefruit and melon, but more caramel malt than anything else. Bitter and resinous, lasting through the finish. Well carbed, medium bodied, and astringent.
