Notes/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.

A huge thank you to CaveDave for sending this beauty along. Poured into straight pint glass. A sharp hiss as the growler was cracked open, and a lightly hazy straw-gold beer was poured. About an inch of fluffy, white head topped the beer, and had decent retention and very good lacing.

A nice lemony hop scent filled the OKComputer's kitchen when the cap was popped, and in the glass a gentle grain scent was underneath that big blast of hops. On the tongue, that very light malt presence was barely noticeable under the avalanche of fruity hops, and I thought I had a bit of pine at the back as well.

The body, while a bit thinner than I like in the style, was very crisp, clean, and smooth, with a nicely dry finish. Drinkability was excellent, we agreed that we would drink the hell out of this brew were it local to us. Overall, a very, very good beer that borders on excellent. A must try if you see it.

Serving type: growler
