3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottled beverage poured a large quickly diminishing yet long lasting head of fine to medium sized bubbles. The body is a softly carbonated light brown transparent color. The aroma contained notes of deep floral hops and reminded me of sunflowers. The palate was tingly from start to finish with a malty aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mild yet deep hop and malt with a thick Vienna malt base.

Clear ruby brown beer that smells piney like an IPA but also has some Belgian yeastiness to it. Nice bitter flavor and a texture that bristles on the palate. Malt and yeast aftertaste. Very nicely crafted hybrid beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6er from Capone’s. Pours hazy copper with off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, peppery, funky citric hops. I love Loose Cannon, and this one had less resiny and peppery flavor but more funky florals, with the same type of caramel malt bill, that is to say bold and hefty, with a complex finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop notes of cookie, roasted, caramel and orange, light soap for the yeast, with background notes of brown sugar, root beer and faint dried fruit and spice. Head is small, frothy turning wispy with bigger bubbles, off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy light orange/red. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bittersweet. Palate is medium, oily with a soft carbonation. Though not very IPA-ish, this is an excellent drinking beer with some great Belgian nuances.
