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.

Poured from tap at Funky Buddha. Pours a hazy copper color. Not overly hoppy, slight pineapple taste. Very smooth. Nice aftertaste.

hotstuff (4642) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Rated on 02-03-2016. Bottled on 12-28-2015. This beer’s appearance is a medium sized off-white head that is mostly lasting, transparent amber body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma presents citrus , pine hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, some spice, and caramel malt. The flavor presents a moderate bitterness, citrus hops, grapefruit, some spice, tropical fruits, lemon, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A very quaffable IPA with a moderate bitter aftertaste. The taste is flavorful as it’s not overly hoppy or bitter for the beer style.

J’ai l’impression que celle-ci est trop vieille, d’où ma note ;-( Aucune, je dis bien aucune, effervescence, un tas de matières en suspension, et une évidente oxydation... Ça doit être plutôt bon frais mais là, c’est très ordinaire.

dambor (260) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2016
Pours orange with small head. Aroma: mango, pineapple, a touch of peach, citrus, but also a little bit of pine tree. Taste: nice citrus and bitterness, with a bit of malty sweetness. I very much like the palate - not too bitter, but lasts pretty long.

SpringsLicker (3319) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Clear gold with a tall, dense off-white head. Aroma is citrus and pine resin. The flavor is moderate bitterness that is well supported, but not dominated by, a smooth malt sweetness. Very nice IPA.

RABinCO (1509) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle into a glass. Hazy gold pours, seems like a hop of hop particulate in suspension. Aroma is floral, perfumy, lightly grassy. Taste is a bit more citrusy, light grassy bitter bite that lingers like grapefruit. Really gets better as it approaches room temp and the flavors start to pop.

radagast83 (6329) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Draft pour in a goblet, probably 10oz pour. Poured a clear orange color, with a small white head. Aroma was pine resin and nice citrus notes. Lots of juicy orange/citrus character to this one. Light resin finish. Tastes a bit boozier than it is. Solid.

Pours a mostly clear golden color with white head. Citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, pine, other light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very fruity. Medium bodied. Finishes with more fruit.

eaglefan538 (2982) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 25, 2015
On draft. Poured an orange color. Nice big head. Good lacing. Aroma of light tropical fruits and pine. Flavor all citrus and grapefruit and melons and tropical fruits. Darned tasty. Great bitterness. Awesome brew. Mouthfeel highly and maybe over carbonated. Other than that. Stellar.
