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 IPAits 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.

12 oz bottle...six-pack purchased at Brew Crew in Guilderland, NY. This is a very nice beer. Caught grapefruit on the nose, and a strong hop charge on the tongue right away. Finish was equally strong with hops. Very, very nice !PA.

On cask, Ginger Man Boston. Deep copper colour, white foam. Quite malty, slightly crystal flavour, sweet background. Oily nice hop, some pine, some tropical fruit and berries. Defined bitterness, not obvious at first. Unusual one, not bad.

Pale orange with a nice head and lacing. Slightly hazy. On the nose a most interesting array of herbal, resinous hops and evident clove, bubblegum, banana and vanilla notes. There are some cheesy or basement things wafting as well. On the palate it is round, silky and full and very slightly bitter that is attenuated by the maltiness. Interesting. Not something I would personally go out and buy but unique.

willisread (3017) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Tap at Js. Clearish gold with little to no head. Light tropical nose, caramel and malt. Clean and well-balanced, but slightly syrupy with a honey and caramel like mouthfeel. Low carbonation with a soft mouthfeel. A tad boozy on the finish.

Pours a dark orangish amber with a full head of off white foam. Lightly syrupy body. Light hops with some sweet malts. Not harsh or bitter but not so refreshing. OK but nothing special.
