COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
WE LOVE HOPS! Their tantalizing aromas. Their diverse and succulent flavors of citrus and spice. All the amazing ways they can be used in brewing. 3HB dedicates the Loopy to our favorite plant, the Humulus Lupulus. Enjoy the waves of tropical fruit intertwined delightfully with a creamy, velvety malt blend. Come get Loopy with us!

ben4321 (4114) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 7/2/13

Aroma: The nose of this one is fairly hoppy, with mostly tropical/citrus fruits
Appearance: It pours a dark orangish-red color with a foamy beige head and plenty of lace
Flavor: The taste is medium-plus bitter, with some underlying sweet notes to it
Palate: Medium bodied, has a somewhat creamy feel, a little stickiness, and lively carbonation
Overall Impression: This is pretty nice hopped-up red. I didn’t find the oatmeal to be particularly noticeable. The finish is just a hint off, which hurts the drinkability a bit, but overall, this is a solid, hoppy red.

Patrickctenchi (4120) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bomber: Pours amber-red with a frothy, light tan head. Aroma is floral, light oatmeal. Taste is like an APA, a little peel and pine, Steady herbal/leafy bitter....nut, wood. Not what I expected, but not bad.

Strykzone (5076) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bomber. An amber beer that is clear and sports a nice three finger beige head. An aroma that is full of citrusy hops and oatmeal. Malts are almost buried. The flavor brings out those hops nicely. They are nicely bitter and citrus with some pine. They are definitely the star of this show. Oatmeal is interesting here. Malts play second fiddle. Not sure why this was not called an IPA because it pretty much is one. It is a tasty one, too.

Tmoney99 (11100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Poured cloudy dark ruby hue with medium frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Medium aroma of hop and sweet grain malt. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor of sweet malt and citrus hop flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Conflict of styles brew.

alexsdad06 (5931) - Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a cloudy orange brown color with a dense medium sized beige head. The aroma was sweet, citrus juice, herbal, and soapy. The flavor was similar, but had a hint of oatmeal, metal, mild bitterness and prickly carbonation. This was a bit of a mess.

DrSilverworm (7001) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2013
22oz bottle, thanks to radarsock. Totally hazy darker orange brown color. Thin khaki head. Sort of bubbly, but it has good retention. Just a couple loose dots of lace. Stronger, soft carbonation, Medium body. Kind of a metallic flavor, some spicy hop. Lightly fruity. Weird light bite, light bitter, more sweet. Nothing really working for me with this brew. Must be a bad or old bottle, I’m thinking.

b3shine (5856) - Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bomber to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks alright; a murky orangish-brown with fluffy light beige head. Smells sweet, citrusy, and bitter. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Average on the palate.

Very tasty beer. The description was spot on. Smooth with a malty after taste. Excited to try some of there other beers.

McGarnigle (566) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bomber. Clear red/amber brew with massive head (there’s the oatmeal). Texture isn’t a creamy as a good oatmeal stout. Decent malt backbone and lots of piney hops. When all is said and done, a Red IPA.

Emeister84 (1129) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2013
Citrus fruit, especially lemon, mango, lemon grass, and subtle pineapple aromas. Clear orange-bronze with a minimal, off-white head. Bitter, dry, and nutty. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a clean and very hoppy but balanced finish.
