hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2014
Rated on 11-23-2011 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a small semi-fizzy beige head that mostly diminishes, transparent orange body, fast rising, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, yeast, pine hops, grapefruit, tangy, fruity, and spicy. The flavor is malt, spicy, citrus hops, grapefruit and has a short dry finish. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation, sticky and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable, has a nice flavor and is worth trying.

jrodooo5 (805) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Deep copper pour with a thick tan head that slowly fades into very nice lacing. The aroma is primarily hops balanced out slightly by subtle spice. The taste is quite complex. It’s hoppy throughout but the Belgian twist complements this IPA well. It becomes easily drinkable at 7+% and has a very nice mouthfeel. Very solid and better than I was expecting!

Lukaduke (1753) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a rich golden almost copper color with a two finger sticky eggshell colored foam. On the nose there is some belgian spice, caramel sweetness, and a nice blend of earthy and fruity hop notes. The palate follows the nose nicely with a good balance between belgian fruit esters and hop notes.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Big fan of Loose Cannon and Black Cannon, but the yeast was a weird experiment to me and it didn't quite work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (5200) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, light off white head that fades quickly. Sweet syrupy aroma with hints of bubble gum and corn syrup. Flavor is sweet with some maple syrup notes, some toffee, a hint of citrus bitterness, bubble gum like back end. Mouthfeel is slightly pasty and artificial. Passable.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2012
From the bottle, pours a hazy copper orange with a thick off white head. Aroma is sweet malty and thick, some alcohol, slight fruit-peaches. Taste is similar, Thinner than expected, Malty, caramel, alcohol. Good beer.

JaBier (4532) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 9/11/12. Hazy amber pour with a thick beige head. Aroma of banana, pepper and citrusy hops. Banana and pepper flavor up front with some spice before a citrusy hop finish. A little too far in the Belgian direction; taking the beauty away from Loose Cannon.

ausomeawestin (151) - Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Pours a deep smoky caramel, looks like apple cider. Medium off-white head that dissipates quickly, leaving some lacing. Aroma of corn husk and yeast, sweet rather than grainy yeast. Tastes of sweet fruit hops, particularly apple, with slight bitter aftertaste. Some spices, touch of cinnamon.  Palate is rather light.
