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.

On tap all the time in Newport, RI.. itís a staple at the neighborhood watering holes. Pours orange gold with healthy white head. Aroma is huge pine hop, bitter citrus rind, fruits, & caramel. Medium body, med carbonation.. Hop^3 is right, nice and bitter throughout.

12 oz. Bottle. Taste is very hoppy, floral, spices. Very good IPA. Hoppy feeling stays in mouth for a long while after consumption. Definitely enjoy it.

12-MAY-2014, bottle @Circa @Foggy Bottom, Washington DC. Clear golden with high, almost white head that leaves fine laces on the glass. Aroma is hoppy and malty with mainly caramel. Taste is grape fruit and pine with a good dose of caramel. Quite bitter with medium carbonation and body. Really a nice IPA.

12 ounce bottle pours a light yellow copper color very clear with off-white head that dissipates rather quickly. Very very little hop aroma with some slight floral notes. Decently balanced hop tot ratio. Just so so.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma is citrus, resin, flowers, and spice. Taste is peach, tangerines, and pine. Very crisp brew, starts out a little sweet and then the dry bitterness hits. Awesome beer.

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2014
Pours a clear golden orange with a thick, creamy off-white head that hangs around for a while. Nose is pine resin, flowers and herbs, light peach and apricot notes. Somewhat sweet, but mostly bitter. Light-medium body, oily, fairly active, creamy, with a lengthy herbal bitter finish. A nice brew, quite drinkable.

There comes a time in every beer drinkers life where they drink a beer and theyíre like "wait I think Iíve had this before..." but they havenít.... This is the epitome of that. Imagine a good ipa. Thatís what this is. There are no frills. Itís just your everyday average good beer.
