3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a medium cloudy amber with a slight yellow hue and had a huge white frothy head that was mostly lasting and produced really nice lacing that stuck to the glass right till the end.
The aroma was right up front with a strong dose of flowery hops, a mild moldy yeast, and just a splash of grain malts with notes of citrus (grapefruit) and a touch of peach.
It tasted ever so lightly sweet and mildly bitter with hints of peach and citrus in the beginning then it became a tad more on the bitter side with a nice spice note and a very pronounced hoppy finish that was left hanging on the palate for a good long duration.
Mouthfeel was kind of light in body and it was nice and dry in texture with the carbonation being very lively.
Overall a refreshing and rather tasty IPA with the 3 timed hop flavor actually working very well on the taste buds giving you full appreciation of this brew.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!
