Game Day Beer Review: Funky Buddha Brewery Hop Gun India Pale Ale

(7.7% ABV, $5) Poured on tap into a pint glass at the Funky Buddha. Hop Gun is darker than you might expect.  The color is a thick-ish tan -- the beer just looks heavy.... There's only the slightest bit of a white head.

Hop Gun smells fairly mild. There's pineapple there, but it's not overwhelming. The taste follows the nose: I'm getting malty caramel, with some subtle pine notes on the finish. The hops in this IPA are not overwhelming, but blend in nicely. Its a solid B.
