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.

Leighton (11674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Growler from the brewery - big thanks to Dr. Sandman. Pours rich gold with a frothy white head. Big, dank nose with lots of melon and ripe orange. Medium sweet flavor with light pine, more melon and orange, some grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Dank hop finish, lightly warming, with some resins, a bit of citrus rind bitterness, melon and papaya. Grassy bitter aftertaste. Really solid.

12/2011; on tap at the brewpub; a cloudy, amber colored IPA with a citrusy hop aroma; very well balanced with a citrusy hoppy flavor and a medium-bodied malt background; very bitter and hoppy

Growler straight from the source. Gorgeous bright orange pour, fluffy head. Nose and flavor are stunning, with gigantic papaya, white pear, apricot, clean bitterness that isn’t overly ascerbic, nice complementary grain character that is lean but provides a touch of spicy backbone. Quaffable and delicious.

drsandman (366) - New York, USA - AUG 29, 2014
On tap @ brewery. Pours a clear yellow with med white head heavy lace. Aroma is kick ass, big guava, cantaloupe, gooey citrus hop, wheat, faint rye. Flavor is gooey guava hop juice, turns light bitter but finishes so smooth. Fait light for the ABV, but medium mouthfeel and carbo. Very nice, fresh batch.

LilBeerDoctor (3506) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Cask at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of stinky sweaty armpit hops, rye, citrus. Flavor is more citrusy, fruity, with plenty of hop oils, grassy hops, garlicky hops and stinky hops in the finish. Excellent rye IPA, light on the rye though. 8/4/8/4/16 (4/5)

ticked at the source, not a grape for everyone, i like the grapeyness than comes from it. Good example of the potential of the nelson sauvin.
