COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tribute to Willie...Shotgun Willie IPA’s aromas of cantaloupe and gooseberry come directly from New Zealand’s Nelson Sauvin Hops. Rye and wheat contribute to a distinct dry grain flavor. Pouring pale straw in color with full hop character, this is unlike any IPA you’ve had before.

ben4321 (4362) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Location: Cask at the Brewpub, 9/20/13, IPA Rating #350

Aroma: The aroma is a nice mix of fruity and resiny hops with rye bread and grainy malts
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden color with a small head and minimal lace
Flavor: It has a nice rye and hop flavor, similar to the nose, with a clean, bitter finish
Palate: The body is clean and drinkable, and the smooth cask feel plays well on this beer
Overall Impression: It is pretty unsurprising at this point, but I thought this was tasty. This one is clean and easy drinking, and it has a smooth feel. I liked it quite a bit.
