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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the hotel bar.
Aroma is fairly hop forward with a balanced, moderately strong malt note. Lots of grapefruit and line resin. Malt is cracker, but also quite a bit of lighter caramel and some toasted bread.
Pours a fairly clear, copper color with a small, thick white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers. Moderately high lacing and small legs.
Flavor is somewhat sweet with a balanced, fairly strong bitterness. Some caramel and toasted bread notes with a bit of a cracker and biscuit character. Moderate hop notes with grapefruit, pine resin and hop oils being lost prevalent.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a clean IPA but very boring. Old school hop and malt profile.

A very mild IPA. A bit of toasty malt is perhaps stronger than the hops. Slight candied sweetness.

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

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.
