COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Style: American IPA
Hops: Warrior, Simcoe, Palisade, Centennial, Cascade, Citra
Malts: 2-Row, Caramalt, Munich

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.

PlainsDrifter (96) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Pours orange with creamy head. Citrus and spice aroma. Lively with medium body, and an astringent finish. This is a very tasty beer - very highly hopped, nice spicy flavor, malt undertone. Smooth drinking and very flavorful.

Extremely impressing taste for the lack of appearance. Good flavor, light enough to enjoy all day. Would buy more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 Amber pour off white head. Caramel malts and a little smokey mixed with fruity hops. I like more bitterness from an IPA but still a solid beer

I had it on tap. It pours a hazy orange with a white head. The aroma is orange, mango, and pine. The taste is the same. As it warms, the alcohol becomes more pronounced. This is tasty. There's a lot of fresh fruit and hop flavor.

jamaty (2268) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 26, 2017
Aroma a lúpulo, herbal, pino. Anaranjada, consistentemente turbia. Espuma duradera. En boca delicadamente lupulada, de amargor contenido. Frutal, maracuyá, piña. Bastante seca, algo picante. Amargor creciente hasta el final para una IPA sabrosa.
