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 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.

Hazy orange. Piney, fruity, some grapefruit orange notes, a bit sweet. Complex, well done.

Can. Orange with a white head. Aroma is pineapple juice and pine. The taste follows closely and adds some sweet malts. Very low bitterness with a slightly resinous finish lets this juicy, hop-forward ipa combine big flavors with easy drinking. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with a slight chunky gold amber. Pine cones and light resinous aroma with a touch of weed. Medium bodied palate with medium hops and leafy bitterness. Decent IPA.

En fût au Great Lost Bear. Je suis surpris de cette offre qui n’était peut-être présentée sous ses meilleurs jours car je l’ai trouvé simple avec des goûts de poussière. Un gaz carbonique trop présent agresse en finale.

Nez d’oranges et de crème glacée avec une touche florale. Goût d’ananas et de pamplemousse avec une touche de conifère. Beau corps crémeux et bonne expérience avec les bulles. Finale florale avec une intensité d’amertume peu développée. Facile à boire.

It pours a golden color with a medium sized, very long lasting white head. I smell caramel, resin, pine, citrus and a little bit of a floral aroma. I taste caramel, a moderate hop bitterness, a floral taste and a little pine. This is a damn good beer.

Quite nice. One noticeable feature is the lack of bitterness. Aroma is a mixtures of elements from citrus to floral with only a twinge of grassy esters. Taste is robust with a bright citrus and grassy hop flavor. The malt adds a soft and sweet flavor, which carries through the lingering hop finish. Overall, it’s nearly a fantastic beer. I just wanted a little more aroma to go with the bright hop flavors.

Pours somewhat of an orange gold color with white head. Citrus, pine, grass, on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a hop bite that is then balanced out with the malt.
