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.

Marheb (1970) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Une ipa au profil très agrumes qui a la particularité d’être très amer en entrée de bouche mais qui se voit adoucir vers l’arrière pour la rendre extrêmement facile à boire. Je me souviens pas d’avoir perçu ce phénomène aussi distinctement avant.
