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.

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Thanks to Thirsty_Moe on the growler. A lot of tropical fruits and biscuity smells. Taste really matches the aroma. A sharp bitterness hits the tongue on first sip. Very unique being quite hoppy and still very quenching and refreshing. Good stuff.
