Our flagship beer, Loose Cannon wins people over at first smell. The carefully cultivated interplay of Simcoe, Palisade, and Centennial creates a most fragrant IPAóits 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.

Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Yellow gold with white head. Nose is a blast of hops, from citrusy, with grapefruit and lemon, to piney and earthy and also herbal. Medium bodied, well balanced bitterness and fantastic hop flavors throughout, not at all overbearing as the name might imply. The alcohol is well masked, I wouldnít have pegged this as one of the heavy seas series. Quite tasty.

Bottle Pours a hazy yellow with a good white head, which is fairly lasting and produces good lacing. Has a strong hoppy aroma of spruce and pine. Smells like a dense forrest. Has good carbination and mouthfeel. Has a muted bitter taste, much lighter than the aroma would lead you to believe. Has a nice finish with a decent aftertaste. This is a fairly decent beer.

Suttree (5422) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Orange, maybe burnt sienna, and no head. Huge grapefruit aroma, mingled with some smoky scents. plus more grapefruit. Heavy bodies, and very hoppy. Big floral hop flavors - citrus and fresh black pepper. Very tasty. Thanks to Springslicker for this one!

The immediate nose on the pour was all flowery hops . Nice amber body, great lacing from the head. Wow, sweet, juicy, like a great fresh glass of ruby red grapefruit. This is an excellent IPA, thanks go out to OHIODAD, this is one I may have passed over myself.

12oz. bottle. Pours a red-twinged golden with a beautiful soapy head with lovely lacing developing over the course of consumption. The nose connotes orange blossom and ambrosia. The mouthfeel is unctuous with pronounced notes of grapefruit without being overly bitter. Near perfect balance, this beer is quite nice. Glad itíll be available year round. Serious competition for some of the established IPA favorites.

I really liked this beer. Actualy part of a very large lot of beers I got on my 21st birthday. I love IPAs, unquestionably my favority kind of beer. So, a great IPA is always a special beer for me. This is one of those IPAs that comes out really balanced. Some beers try to go too crazy, which is fun sometimes, but the sweetness and hops really go well together in this and make for a really drinkable balanced beer.

Nice clear orange pour that shines in the light with a lasting nicotine stain looking pocked white head. Yep, there are hops in this. Grass? Yep. Pine? Yep. Citrus? Yep. The orange and cut grass nose is dominant here. Very inviting. Roasted hop flavor that is a bit rough. A sweetness exists here but it is overpowered and shoved to the back by the woody hop flavor that runs a bit off to the point of having an iced tea flavor. A heavy handed IPA but not really bad.

This was shit. I donít even think it should be called a double IPA. Color was a light orange...had a fastly disappearing head. Aroma was extremely muted and bland...just a bit of citrusy hops and a tad of alcohol. Taste was totally bland too...what they hell are you guys talking about...this isnít hoppy enough for my grandmother. It was too sweet as well. I didnít even attempt to finish this slut until nearly 2 hours after I opened it... only then when it was about 65-68 some odd degrees did it take on any flavor what soever. Clipper City can suck my balls.

Holy smokes, if you donít like hops donít get this one. Very hop forward with tastes of apple and pear. Finishes rather quickly. Very carbonated and a decent beer.

Pours apricot orange with a white head that didnít really linger too long. Aroma is very hoppy - citrus and pine for sure. First sip really took me by surprise - I didnít expect such a big body from this ale. Tastes very flavorful in the hop arena and malty a bit toward the end. Finish is more bitter hops. They really kinda caught me in the back of the throat. Fun beer, Iíd enjoy it again. A little big on the body for a straight up ipa, but the flavor is definitely there. Thanks goes out to JHop for the trade!
