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.

The IPA had a full hoppy aroma upon opening with a desirable deep golden appearance. Flavor was favorable with intense and lasting floral and citrus tones. Carbonation was on the high side, but mellowed nicely as the pint finished. Overall it was an above average very good IPA.

Nice amber pour with a fair cream colored head and plenty of bubbles rising. Smells of pineapple with juniper berry and little touch of candy cane. Great flavor with a solid malt base balancing a well applied hop accent. Citrus, pineapple, toasty biscuit, piney tones and a nice dry finish. Excellent mouthfeel with a medium body. A refreshing and very well crafted IPA.

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 (5139) - 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.

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.
