Hop Gun India Pale Ale


Meet your new wingman! According to Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park, Florida, Hop Gun IPA is up for the job! Hop Gun and Floridian Hefeweizen were recently released as the brewery's first two bottled beers. The Hop Gun label pushes the "Top Gun Meets Beer" theme with fighter jets firing warheads with hop cone tips--pretty busy scene! The story to the side sets your expectations, again using the wingman lingo. 7.0% alcohol.

Under the cap: ENJOY THE JOURNEY. Fruity, tropical aroma with light pine. Fruity, big citrus with tropical pineapple nuances to start. Then big pine and grapefruit flavors show up with an excellent bitterness. The spiciness works excellently with the carbonation, and you get a touch of alcohol dryness at the finish. My wife said, "not bad" but that just means she's comparing great against great since I'm in charge of all beer selection around here! Great beer!
