Very Good
Notes: As bright as the rays emanating from the center of a dying star, Plasma Gun blasts extreme notes of naval orange, papaya, and white grapefruit onto its unsuspecting target. Locked and loaded with pounds upon pounds of the finest intergalactic lupulin bio-capsules, this IPA continues our exploration of the hop flavosphere. From the spacious depths of our gleaming tanks to the crystalline beverage receptacle of your choice, we hope you enjoy the journey.

This hazy, pale yellow can pour has a soft foam cap and a sweet banana aroma that is not completely pleasant. The flavor is somewhat sweet with tropical fruit, mostly orange up front. The body is light. There is moderate hop bitterness and a bit of hop burn. This is not my favorite from the brewer, but brewers and drinkers have to experiment.

A: The beer is very hazy and a little pale yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that left a patch of bubbles on the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to medium aromas of navel oranges are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of navel oranges along with notes of grapefruit and hints of caramel malts. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied, juicy, and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA does a very good job at showcasing the aromas and flavors of navel oranges.
