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.

Thanks to Thirsty_Moe on the growler. A lot of tropical fruits and biscuity smells. Taste really matches the aroma. A sharp bitterness hits the tongue on first sip. Very unique being quite hoppy and still very quenching and refreshing. Good stuff.

Draft at the Filling Station. Pours orange with a white head. Fruity hops, moderate bitterness, light sweet malts, faint resinous notes, and flowery and medium bitter hoppy finish. Pretty good.

nice brown looking brew with a pronounced grapefruit hop character. interesting backdrop of a fruit punch yes somewhat of a melon character. refreshing with enough harshness and the balance harkens caramel.

Growler picked up by Maurice... Smells like a good brew. Nice flower, light pine hop nose. Looks like your average IPA. Taste is a nice smooth but non uber hoppy IPA. Very well balanced and easy to drink. Light tropical fruit, piney notes, with some flowers/perfume and malt presence but keeping the body on the light side. Easy to drink. Overall good beer but I wouldn’t seek it again. Thanks to Mo!

4oz pour at Churchkey DC pours a clear, dark orange with some fluffy, cloudy, white head. Nose has pine, soap, orange, grapefruit, mild malt. Flavor follows, malty, mild honey, pine, soap, orange, lightly pithy. Finishes lightly sticky. A little bit old school.
