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.

Good-sized foam on top of a dark orange offers a nose of pine-needle and sand hops. Palate is medium-heavy with light carbonation. Flavor starts with the bitter hops characterstics as expected, but turns surprisingly caramel sweet with the malt backbone. Enjoyable interplay to this remarkably fresh, rich brew. Very solid.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 Aroma is a sweet/hoppy with hints of Berries. clear, light body almost a caramel color. Clean and Crisp when Fresh, clean health head, Flower hoppy taste is very nice. It’s actually concidered a Hop 3 Ale. Will make any Hop-Head VERY happy.

RealAle (12) - USA - MAY 16, 2006
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!!
