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.

Draft at Localtopia. Weak aroma of hops and slight floral notes. Flavor doesn't have the punch I was hoping for. Not as good as I had hoped overall but not bad.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Tap at proof brewing tallahassee Florida jan 2014 Pours deep orange hue with a small soapy off white head and sparse lacing. Nose is resins woody slightly metallic. Flavors are pine big grapefruit and re sinous woody hops. Sort of an old stool iPad here akin to a sierra Nevada or even more harsh. Long woody re sinous finish. Soft palate makes this pretty easy to drink.

Une robe presque cuivrée sur laquelle déborde une mousse presque beige. Au nez, des fruits et encore des fruits. Je dirais même plus, une salade tropicale. Les notes maltées apparaissent de belle façon en laissant les sucres de côté au profit d’une bonne représentation grillée. Au goût, les houblons sont forts et un peu moins fruités. Des fleurs et de la résine s’immiscent dans la conversation. J’ai une impression savoureuse de houblons en feuilles. Le profil céréalier est toujours limité en douceur et expose toujours des notes toastées. En bouche, le corps du liquide est de moyenne densité avec un pétillement assez modéré et une texture légèrement huileuse. La finale est assez costaude et longuement amère avec des notes profondes de résine, de fruits et de feuilles épicées.

On tap at FL Tap Invitational at Proof. Pours a clear golden orange with thin Off-white lacy head. Aroma is resinous citrus up front then a nice caramel malt backbone. Taste follows, bittersweet finish. This is very well balanced, nice IPA.

Spicy, pickled peach aroma. Almost briny, malty and not sweet. I liked. Spicy finish. On tap, Proof Florida Tap Invitational, with PorterPounder.
