Had as 16oz draft at Lokal Burger in Coconut Grove.

Pour: Straw - yellow; clear; small but firm head that dissipates rather slowly

Nose: Fresh clean malt; Resiny hops; Pineapple smell that hits you at the same time as the hops, intermingles with the resiny hops

Taste: Excellent; clean fresh malty - biscuity backbone with perfectly balanced, juicy hops and pineapple; I usually hate fruit beers but this beer truly pairs the hops malt and juice flavors perfectly. The pineapple flavor lingers along with the hops and the final product is the definition of "lip smacking". Want more.

On tap at the Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park. Pours a nice golden color, with a very thin head. Smell is of faint pineapple and citrusy hops, wish I could smell a little more pineapple here. Taste was of faint pineapple, followed by some citrusy hops finished with a peppery zing. The mouthfeel is good, overall I like this beer. Though I prefer the regular Hop Gun IPA slightly more. Cheers!

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.
