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.

3rd August 2010. GBBF
Hazy gold beer. Residual suddy white head. Light dry palate. Lovely fresh semi sweet hops. Sweet pineapple and pine and a trace of mango. Finishes dry with a little spice. Really nice IPA - loads of hop but nicely judged.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2010 2010-03-09, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Hazy amber color. The hop aroma is quite resiny. Good body, with toffee flavor, light residual sweetness; the hop has some resins, pine needles, bitter orange peel, average bitterness, but not biting as wanted. It seems a bit tired, not fresh.

2009-10-18, draught at Pony Bar, New York, 7-4-7-5-15=38
Blond color. Nice aroma of citrusy hops. The body is quite round, toffee flavor, and good hops, citrusy and also a bit resiny. Strong final, resiny, leaner than the alcohol content would suggest. Good hop Ale.
