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.

Taps clear dark amber with a thin but serviceable buff head that leaves good lacing. Aroma presents hoppy, grapefruit, floral, woody and fresh malt notes. Flavor delivers hops, zesty grapefruit, floral and malty character - quite enjoyable. Body is quite firm, fizz is lively and lasting. I feel the need - the need for beer!

Poured from a 32 ounce growler. Minimal white head dissipates rather quickly. Nice citrus grapefruit and piney aroma. A bit darker than your average IPAA almost a red IPAA. Excellent hop flavor and bitterness medium bodied and medium carbonation. absolutely one of my favorites.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a slightly hazy amber hue with a frothy off-white head and minimal spotty lacing. Big hop and sweet fruit aroma, pineapple, mango, and citrus. A bright hopped taste with fruity overtones. A delicious IPA on this last day of my Miami trip.
