On tap at Colada in Fort Lauderdale. Hop Gun is not my favorite Florida IPA. However, when they age it in the French Oak casks it completely changes the flavor profile. This beer has tremendous balance. Notes of vanilla throughout with a really smooth finish. Caramel/reddish color. I'd say this is a half a step behind the White Oak Jai Alai from Cigar City, but still a really great beer. Certainly worth a try.

Had on draft. The oak treatment adds so much to the nose and flavor. Tons of hops and sweetness balanced by the rich oak. One of the better non stout/porters I've had from FB. If you can find it, order it.

Had on draft at tap and grind in Orlando. Not a big fan of regular hop gun, but the oak does wonders for this beer. Great, tasty and easy drinking IPA.
