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.

There are few IPAs that strike a purely 'neutral' note, meaning no hop flavor at all. Hop Gun is such an IPA, absolutely no IPA flavor. It's so neutral that you can't even tell it's an IPA, because it's not. How clever.

32 oz growler to Lawson's snifter. Thanks to ptrc for bringing this.

A: Super dark for an IPA. looks more like a red ale. Minor carb, growler shipped from FL to MA held up well.

S: Malty. Not getting much hop presence at all. Almost has a caramel smell.

T: A little sweet. Also not much hop presence here at all.

M: smooth, not watery. Probably the best part of this beer.

O: This is a huge disappointment. I don't know if the beer is too old, or if shipping hurt it, but this was close to a drainpour me. My first FB beer not at EBF. :(

Moderate bitterness, slight citrus. Far too sweet for my tastes.

Appearance – The beer was a shiny copper in color with a nice, pure white head.

Smell – The light grain and citrus hops play well together.

Taste – Here the rind comes out a bit more but otherwise nicely balanced.

Mouthfee – This is medium-bodied with a dry character throughout.

Drinkability – A true session American IPA.

It's an average beer and I rated it as such. Not sure why it's higher than a 3 overall.
