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.

ABC Orlando bottle over Princess weekend. Just a really nice IPA. Everything is there. A little orange and grapefruit citrus flavor. Medium bitterness with a hint of resin. Plus enough malt to keep it balanced. Very tasty.

Very bitter and hoppy, perhaps too much actually! This is not a session beer, i did not taste floral notes or even citrus just hops! Too much ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle from smith4498. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head that settles into a creamy film. The aroma has some nice citrus and tropical fruit hops with some sweeter malts present as well. The flavor has some citrus and tropical fruit hops though less than the nose indicated, grass, toasted malts, some caramel, moderate bitterness to the finish, dry, decent enough.

Tranquillity (1433) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled. The aroma is quite good, bit of bread and yeast. The body is muddy and there quite a thick white head. The taste is sweet and it lacks the kick of a typical ipa. However, the finish is great.

Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with thick creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is tropical fruit, papaya, mango, tangerine, pear, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a nice hop bitterness extending through the finish. Overall this is a real fun brew!
