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 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.

I would never have guessed Double IPA. Too light to fit that category. Still is was good. It had a nice buttery taste to it and was more malty then hoppy.

Maddog (422) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2005
A decent beer, but not for an IPA. Would be a great Pale Ale. The flavor was nice and citrusy, great hop flavor, but just not enough of it. The body was too thin. For 7.5 %, it is suprisingly fragile and weak. This beer is in NO WAY shape or form a double IPA.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2005
pours a rose color with a thin film of white head, almost looks like a white zinfandel. Aroma is sweet and fruity, almost like a watermellon jolly rancher. Flavor is light, yet bitter and floral. Overall, not a bad brew, extremely light for a double ipa.

shadey (1970) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2006 Clear orange color with visible carbonation and a thin white head. Aroma is awesome. Itís sweet like candy and fruit. Flavor is malty sweet and wonderful. Not as extreamly bitter as I expected. Very different and very delicious. 10/4/7/4/18
RERATE: Dark orange pour with a nice cream lace. Aroma is fantastic fresh grapefruit. Flavor is fresh delicious grapefruit and resiny hops. This is just what I remember. This has finally appeared here in Rochester and I need more.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Clear deep brassy gold with minimal carbonation and a fading, sudsy white head. Pungent aroma of wet, musty hay, canned peaches, and a note of sweet malt. Flavor has a sweet, tropical fruit hop character that blends with the residual malt sugars. Also a note of musty, wet cardboard early plus some pine. Juicy palate. The bottom line is that thereís not a great bouquet here; itís not exactly weak but not especially appealing or interesting and those qualities are essential requirements for a good DIPA. Thanks TannerTavernboy Eric for the 359th time.

Bottle, thanks to Aaron for giving me this, served in my GL snifter:

Pours a nice dark golden hue iwth an initial large fizzy head that settled to a small ring and produced okay lace. The aroma has a big nose of piney, citric, peppery, and floral hops with some notes of bready and pils malting. The taste wasnít has astrengent and piney has I would have thought, very balanced and fresh tasting. The Munich malt seems to work nicely here. Interesting that it goes back and forth between grapefruit and pineapple citric tones. An equally good peppery aftertaste lingers well past the last sip. The mouthfeel is brisk and lively, I would have liked to see it with a touch more body though. A well crafted brew indeed.

Sampled at the Pizza Port 9th Strong Ale Festival, at the "ratebeer" table, thanks to whomever brought this. Hops were nicely under control here, nice fruity malt character is balanced by floral hops. I hardly ever pass up a DUIPA, this was a very good one.

Big thanks to the ratebeerians that brought this to pizza portís strong ale fest last night. A big hoppy double/triple? IPA. What made this unusual was the vanilla and caramel notes set agains the hops, generally a triple ipa would be a pure hop monster. Hop notes were very floral -- cascade?

Super-hoppy aromas are fragrant and perfumey. Floral notes dominate. The brew itself is a deep straw-gold color. The palate is accomplished and even, with a gentle nip of hops at the front end of the beer that then grow into a full, dense hop sensation on the tongue. Finish is long and floral, as well. A good display of beermaking on this Imperial IPA.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - DEC 2, 2005
bottle-pours bright orange with a 1/2 inch soapy off-white head and some whispy lacing. huge floral flowery hoppy nose-lemon, tangerine, passonfruit, with tons of juicy sweetness. big pineapple and citrus flavors here-lemon emerges after the swallow. for some reason, this beer reminds me of hop wallop with its dry malt tone to it. a good ipa, but not superb.
