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!

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Draught from Sputen Duyvil. Dark amber pour with generous off-white head. Sticky hops--resin, pine, and some citrus on the nose, but some sweet caramel as well. Taste adds unpleasant metallic element.

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Pours an amber with a white head. Heavy pine aroma, along with apple, apricot, caramel, and a bit of grapefruit. Taste is big in apple, while caramel is more pronounced. Lots of pine and very grassy. Somewhat sour also. Good hoppy kick that is quite unexpected for this style. I actually an impression that this is more similar to an IPA instead of an amber. Piney aftertaste. Sticky feel when drinking with good carbonation. This one is a little more unusual and very enjoyable. Iím very happy that I tried this.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2012
22oz bottle from Beers of the World in Henrietta. Pours a deep red with a nice head of soapy white bubbles. Aroma is plenty hoppy and with some caramel sweetness. The flavors are very well blended - the oatmeal helps develop the body nicely. Incredibly easy to drink.

Draft pint. Very clean medium brown/orangish color. Lite bitterness and bit of spice in aftertaste. I'm not a big red fan, but I dig this beer!

jkwood04 (3787) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 2, 2012
22oz bottle in shaker. Pours brownish copper with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, a little oats, and citrusy hops. Flavor about the same with an interesting blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer for the style.

smith4498 (2988) - Miami, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle from a trade with BlackIPA. Pours clear copper color with off white head. Toasted malt aroma with some earthy, piney hops. Toasted malt flavor with some nuttiness, earthiness, and biscuit. Some bitter pine hops. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Shawn.

BoostIPA (1198) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 12, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 10 rating. Iím in, team tubes. Pours a deep red, rusty color with an initially large head that fade fast. Piney hops in the nose. Taste is bitter, mouthfeel is slick and slightly chewy. Strong malty backbone. Decent amber ale, but slightly overpriced (all 3HB beers are) and not outstanding. Having said that, this is hands down the best beer made in Rochester, NY.

Pours deep blood orange into a Sam glass. Off-white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Sweet resin and tropical fruit aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel upfront turning to bitter grapefruit and resin in the lasting finish.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours deep amber with bitter hop notes. Nice lacing leads into a caramel, dense grain, toasted notes, and mild hop bitterness. Finishes with a nice deep flavor.
