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!

Bomber from Capone’s. Pours caramelly ruby colored with clingy off-white head. Nose is piney hops, caramel malt, red wine grapes. Tasted complex, with a piney hop flavor, some vinous fruit at mid-palate, spare caramel malt, and a very hoppy finish.

Draught at MacGregors. Brow-orange color, fine low head. Very fruity nose; cherry, orange, lemon. Very fruity flavor of cherry, orange, pineapple, grape. Earthy hops, some pine, nice bitterness. A strange but good fruitiness. Good beer.

j12601 (8050) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby amber with a large creamy yellowed beige head. Crisp and clean citrus on the nose, hoppy and bright, not overly pungent though. Medium bodied, smooth and lightly sweet. Picks up a faint metallic tinge, oatmeal smoothing out everything, earthy with some dank hoppiness. The creamy sweet body is an interesting change from the standard red ale. Balanced fairly well, gentle hoppy bitterness on the finish, almost the faintest hint of cocoa as well. Easy drinking.

alexsdad06 (7462) - 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.

b3shine (7133) - 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.

swoopjones (7013) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2012
draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. deeper amber crimson pour. Big malty nose, some citrus hops. Bready maltiness, toasty. Oatmael adds a nice touch. Not a huge fan of amber but this is a pretty good one

Bottle courtesy of Andrew at Dadtoberfest 2012. Pours a deep amber red body with light off white head and lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, pine and tropic hop. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet caramel malts, resin, pine, and light bitter grapefruit. Nice.

PorterPounder (6536) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2014
Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper, very slight off-white head - a touch of lace. Aroma is pleasant, a hint of spruce, some apricot fruitiness. Flavor is solid and well balanced with some solid grapefruit bitterness, a touch of yeasty bready notes, some minty side notes. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it. Nothing unique or special, but a good solid drink.

In short: A piney golden IPA with strong oatmeal flavor. Orignal and good.
How: Tap at Nail Creek, Utica NY.
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by a medium beige head with good retention.
In long: Nose is hop-forward with a dominant piney character but also herbal notes, citrus fruits and lemongrass. Taste is something else. I could really taste oatmeal flakes in this one, like my breakfast Quacker’s oatmeal I buy in bags that get me an oatmeal bowl in 5 minutes. Oatmeal, and lots of it. Also usual caramel and a bit of honey. Then the hops, assertive but not overwhelming, very much pine-tree and green pine-needles but with also a bit of dry grass and refreshing citric notes. Body was full and velvety, expansive carbonation that filled the mouth very every little sip, a mouthfeel that is obviously reminiscent of oatmeal stouts. Far from a masterpiece, if anything I liked it a lot mostly because there’s not many oatmeal IPAs out there, so this was something fun because unusual, but I’d probably quickly get tired of beers like this if full-on-oatmeal IPAs were commonplace. Entering my backlog of ratings makes me thirsty, I wish my local all-you-can-drink beer bar was open right now, or at least existed.
