COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tribute to Willie...Shotgun Willie IPAs aromas of cantaloupe and gooseberry come directly from New Zealands 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 youve had before.

Strife21 (338) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2016
​Pours dark hazy Amber with white head. Not a lot of scent on the nose, most earthy grass or malt. Taste is earthy, notes of hay, roasted malt and then the citrus and hops come threw a bit. Not what I expected but its balanced. Medium body medium carb

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2014
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 isnt overly ascerbic, nice complementary grain character that is lean but provides a touch of spicy backbone. Quaffable and delicious.

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.
