Notes / Commercial Description:
If you’re looking for hops, we’ve got your tail. Hop Gun IPA delivers a payload of good ol’ American hops straight to your palate, bursting forth with the flavors of grapefruit and pineapple. A careful dose of smooth caramel malts swoop in to balance out the finish — just like any good wingman should.

12 oz bottle poured into 16oz pint glass

A: Deep copper with decent lacing. Good white head.
S: Sugar and fruit slightly (but nicely) overpowered by piney hops. Touch of alcohol in the background
T: Fantastic. A deep caramel malt backbone balances an assertively pine hoppiness up front. Fruitiness is mild but present and the pine leaves a wonderful bitterness. This is my new favorite IPA
M: Thick and syrupy. Bitter and dry after. Nice fit for the style
O: This is a phenomenal beer. I have bought dozens of sixers of this one and still want more. It continually satisfies, being an IPA guy all my favorie beers are in this style. This is my new favorite beer, and its been that way for a good 2 years now. To the brewers at Funky Budda: you nailed it.

Solid IPA. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Very refreshing. One of Florida's best IPA's 4.60

This beer is Florida's answer to west coast IPAs. It is hoppy with very fruity undertones. The pineapple and melon step through among the resinous and piney hops. This makes it a great IPA to drink on our hot humid days. The 7 % doesn't hurt either. Absolutely delicious. It has ranked in my top ten for sure.

A: pours cloudy orange with a creamy white head which held very well.
S: Very fresh nose, fruity (papaya, passionfruits), very hoppy, lightly floral. A light vanilla scent also.
T: The taste is also very fruity (passionfruits, mango, lime), as resinous as can be (pine, sap). Nice bitter aftertaste.
M: Quite high bodied given the ABV. Creamy and smooth. Very refreshing. Alcohol is little detectable. The perfect mouthfeel for the style.
O: A very well done IPA, tasty, pleasant on the palate, balanced and thirst quenching.
