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.

Pours a nice golden tan color and has almost no head. Very dry and crisp. Smells hoppy. The taste is full on hops with citrus and an slightly alcoholic taste.

Draught. Slight hops aroma, light amber color, small off-white foamy head, slightly sweet hoppy taste, low carbonation, long finish with moldy aftertaste. The aftertaste ruins the beer a bit.

haddon90 (1492) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Draft at the Greene Turtle at BWI. Pours a clear, copper color with a thin, lacing white head. Nice, thick hoppy aroma. Some tangy fruit as well. Smooth, hoppy taste. Almost creamy as in it is on nitro. Good balance. Not too overpowering. Solid IPA.

bennetporter (57) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Extremely satisfying IPA, floral citrusy hop aroma, was this dry-hopped? Beautiful deep golden color with a creamy head, yet there is a good balance of malt to round it out. Excellent example of the style.

Draft at mellow mushroom (fl). Woody citrus aroma. Looks like every other beer. Not overly bitter- citrus overtones. Straight up good. Reordered!
