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.

MrBunn (2658) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2006
Aromas are fairly crisp of hops and a bit of a sweet caramel/toffee background with a bit of apple juice type fruit. Appearance is a dark orange/amber with a pretty substantial foamy head that has a slightly yellow haze to it. Flavor is quite different that a lot of US IPA’s in that it is grain heavy up front and the heavy hopping develops just a hair later. Very nice and a little different in the hop flavoring as well.

Very nice IIPA. This has a monster hop profile and very complex flavor. I love the hints of spice in this one, and they are backed up by a nice caramel malt backbone. Refreshing and enjoyable.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2006
Clear amber, small off white head. Flavor and aroma of pungent, floral, spicy hops on top of soft caramel malt. Medium/full, slightly syrupy palate. If you’re looking for a good dose of hops, you can’t go wrong with this one.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2006
draught: Aroma is of sweet citrus, amber colored, flavor is full of citrus reminicent of simcoe hopping, but its not according to the label. Not really bitter, piney, or resiney, just lots of citrus and malt. I truly enjoyed it

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Very citrusy - almost a grapefruit aroma to it. Nice white head, good amber colour. The hops are aggresive, but do not overwhelm. Nice.

decaturstevo (5743) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2006
A hazy orange pour with a decent off white head that goes pretty quick but a little of the lacing hangs around for a while. If you like a hop aroma bury your face in this baby and breath deep. I could taste them through my sinus cavity. A flavor of orange peels, barely a hint of malt, and hops in the flavor. Smooth easy palate that is just a tiny bit weak at the end. A good good beer I wish I could get here.

From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a notched best before along the left side of the front label, Aug/06. Made a good appearance, poured a slightly hazy reddish amber hued golden with a foamy head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing, small amount of sticking, good carbonation. Had a nose of floral, light spice and orange citric hops with a sweet maltiness at the edges. A semi-crisp, softly textured and creamy smooth lightish medium bodied mouthfeel, good drinkability. Good balance between the hops and malts in the taste, dry flowery, spicy and orange flavored hops, soft and rolling in it’s bitterness, balanced by a sweet maltiness, caramelized sugary, the alcohol is well masked and a dryish, sweet finish with the hops lingering a bit in the palate. I’m not sure if I would call this a D/IPA, but it is very quaffable at a affordable price.

Poured amber in color with a decent white head. Smells and tatses of hops and spice. This was a pretty good beer overall, will have again.

jcr (2517) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Cloudy, light orange pour with soft, white head that doesn’t last long. Flowery bouquet with grapefruit and orange aroma filling in around the edges. Faint smell of toast, plastic. The flavor is full of hops, nicely balanced. Juicy, spicey, citrusy — orange peel, grapefruit, perfume. Not overly bitter. Peppery finish. The medium body is moderately sticky leaving an aftertaste of light floral soap.

Bottle. Pours a light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is tremendous. Floral hop notes abound, with nice citrus undertones. The flavor is a visit to Hop City. Excellent balance of malt to soften the blow of the large amount of hops in the brew. It ends with a spicy finish. Excellent IPA.
