COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Style: American IPA
Hops: Warrior, Simcoe, Palisade, Centennial, Cascade, Citra
Malts: 2-Row, Caramalt, Munich

Our flagship beer, Loose Cannon wins people over at first smell. The carefully cultivated interplay of Simcoe, Palisade, and Centennial creates a most fragrant IPA—its nose bursts with notes of grapefruit, herbs, and pine. Bitterness is somewhat subdued by the floral quality that pervades the taste. The color is burnished gold, and the mouthfeel is creamy. A strong malt backbone balances out the triple-hopped beer. Its nickname, Hop3, comes from the brewing process: our brewers hop Loose Cannon in the boil, the hopback, and the fermenter. It won a second place CAMRA award at the 2010 Great British Beer Festival.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Bottle: Pours a nice color, somewhat small head. Very nice flavor.....hoppy, yet somewhat sweet. Good Stuff. Reminds me of Ballast Point Big Eye. I could drink this all day.

Thanks, Denis! –You’ll probably never read this, but Thanks anyway!

Pours a lovely bronze body and a tall ivory head. A SUPER floral nose to this beer! Ahhh… The wonderful aroma of a dank sack of hops that are about to be tossed in the kettle for dry-hopping. Super fresh and abundant hops! The flavor has a nice backbone of sweet caramel with a hint of brown sugar, followed by a grapefruit zestyness and super dry, spicy pine resin finish. -An especially well done brew and sitting on the cusp of being imperial!!

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 8, 2006
This bottled brew marked 8/06 poured a medium sized head of foamy off-white colored finely sized bubbles that left behind a carbonated transparent orange colored body. The aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was tingly from start to finish. The flavor was also simply described as hoppy.

jsquire (3538) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Golden color beer with a thin off-white head and a huge, sharp nose of fresh pine needles, grapefruit and oregano. This beer is all about the hops. Intense grapefruit, pine needle and orange rind hoppiness. Very hoppy beer. Toffee malt sweetness tries to underpin the hops, but just can’t quite do it. Body seems a little thinner than it could be. This is a hop head beer, and enjoyable if you are in the mood for the hops.

droopy49 (97) - Lancaster, California, USA - APR 25, 2006
12oz bottle thanks to SprinsLicker! Poures a nice golden color with a medium frothy head. Nice hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and pine . Good hoppy flavor with a nice malty balance. Nice lingering bitter finish. My kind of IPA, a bit hoppier that most of the non-west coast IPA’s I have had thus far.

TomDecapolis (4526) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 25, 2006
Pours a translucent orange amber with a medium bubbly off white head that left some lacing but diminished fairly quickly. Aroma was very nice. A very fresh hop aroma of oranges, floral, caramel and a light spiciness. Aroma actualy reminded me a slightly stepped down Nugget Nectar. Flavor was also solid with a light bitterness up front that is quickly balanced out with the malts. Picking up more pine and grapefruit in the flavor. ABV very well hidden. Happily impressed with this IPA.

hotstuff (4236) - Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2006
Bottle. Small off-white fizzy head that mostly diminished, minimal lacing, transparent, carbonated, and a golden hue. Nose was hoppy and citrus. Flavor was very hoppy, malty, caramel and dry tasting. Hoppy, dry mouthfeel. Medium body.
