amber pour, lots of highlights of yellow and bright orange hints throughout. A light cloudiness lays in it as a three finger head of white comes up and over the top of the glass. Rich lacing down the sides yields a wonderfully complete look that is simply stunning. Aroma is huge, rich citrus notes that are dominated by a stunningly fresh fruit juice aroma. Rich pineapple, , ripe grapefruit and a wonderful fresh, hop aroma. So rich and fresh, I could have drank this for breakfast everyday and been happy. Each sip brought even more complex and stunningly wonderful flavors. Rich mango, orange, grapefruit, no hint of any malt balance here, just straight up hop juice mixed with tropical fruit that is balanced perfectly.

On tap at the brewery. Served into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep hazy copper. Nice white head. Chunky collar and wispy surface.

Smell - Lots of pineapple. Pine hop. Resiny. And diacetyl. Butterscotchy.

Taste - Less pineapple, but still present. Really piney and grassy. Diacetyl is less prevalent, but comes out in the back end. Bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Bitter, medium carbonation. Butterscotchy. It's not terrible.

Overall - The smell is worse than anything. Diacetyl doesn't quite ruin it completey, because the pineapple mutes it.

Had this yesterday at the brewpub. Review from notes. Received in a snifter.

3.5 A: Hazed amber color. Came without a head.

4.5 S: As advertised, there is a ton of pineapple. Lightly sugary. Behind that there is mango, grapefruit, light pine, and orange. Minimal malt component with a touch of caramel.

3.5 T: Not nearly as impressive as the nose. The tropical fruit is very much reduced. Moderate pineapple with just touches of mango, orange, and grapefruit. Light caramel and moderate maltiness overall.

3.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. The problem is that this is missing the creaminess that I love in good IPAs.

3.5 D: Decent beer, but unimpressive taste, especially given how good the nose was. This could have been great with a heavy round of dry-hopping.

From a 32 oz FB growler to a Lawskns snifter. Thanks to ptrc for bringing this.

A: just like the regular hop gun, very dark for an IPA. Almost 3-finger head on this one, was way more carbed than the original.

S: Pineapple, pineapple, and more pineapple. Really nailed the smell.

T: Better than the original. The chemical taste from the original is subdued by the pineapple taste. A lot more drinkable than the original.

M: nice and smooth, no wateriness.

O: Still disppointing, but a step up from the original. Very high hopes based off the smell, but the taste didn't match up. Worth trying for the novelty, but probably not worth trading for if you can't get it easily.
