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!

MacBoost (1534) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 12, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 10 rating. I’m 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.

(bottle - 22 oz) Copper pour with a creamy looking white head. Hoppy and citrusy aroma . Flavor begins with a good citrus hop flavor with a slightly dry and fruity bitterness. Oatmeal isn’t very apparent but that doesn’t matter to me. Really great citrus and floral hop flavor.

jgb9348 (5115) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with a muddy brown glow and a thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright citrus and piney hops with a good malt note, some assertive roasty notes and a bit of a herbal dry kick. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong assertive hop notes with cascade and a bit of a piney kick that fades fairly quickly to fairly mild malty flavour with alcohol and a very pungent hop kick in the back. Aftertaste is nice, but fairly one-dimensional with only hops noticeable, but in a good way. Overall, a nice and rather fitting beer, aside for the fact that the malt (thus oatmeal) isn’t noticeable at all - and this is basically a hoppy amber ale with little else to support it’s intentions. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from K&E Discount Beverage in New Paltz, New York on 21-July-2012 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 02-September-2012.

boxofrane (2437) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bomber from Wegman’s college ville. Pours reddish copper with some light coming through, a medium sized off white head, medium lacing. The aroma is certainly hoppy. There is a good bit of floral notes, medium pine, tropical fruit, a little sweetness. The taste has a nice hop punch at the front of the tongue that gives way to some caramel malt, a little rye, a little citrus. A solid offering.. and a bit dry, honestly.

ben4321 (4823) - 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.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle into a goblet. Pourss a ruddy amber with a slight off white head that leaves medium lacing. Very strange aroma that is sweet and grassy. The oatmeal is really present here, all around, and it works great. Smooth mouthfeel with big grassy, bitter hop character.
