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.

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.

Aroma: honey, malt, tropical fruits Taste: intensive malt component with mix of hops flavours. Strong honey and earthy from the start, citrus and tropical fruits in the middle and lite grassy notes in the end.

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 (2255) - 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.

12 oz. can. Mild scents of hops and malt and yeast. Pours a cloudy brown orange with a white head. Balanced tastes of sweet carmel and cokies with a slight bite at the brief finish. Pretty drinkable. Not too distinctive.

From notes. Had this on draft at Chick’s Oyster Bar in Virginia Beach on May 24. The pour is a darker golden orange with a thin ring of light off white head and a few spots of soapy lace as it falls. It’s interesting. The aroma is pretty good. There is a strong citrus and bitterness up front before the strong malts kick in. There is a light alcohol on the nose, and a little bit of bitter rind. The flavor is where it falls apart. It’s got a really sharp alcohol happening. It’s enormously bitter, and then fades into something almost sweet. The hop and pine resin just doesn’t work and the sweetness of the malts is a mess. The mouth feel is watery, yet a little thick with a sharper carbonation and a lingering bitter alcohol on the finish. This one definitely is not for me.

From a growler into a pint glass. Fantastic tropical aroma. Light body. frothy white head and lacing. Taste is straight up tropical fruit. Mango, pineapple, lots of the good stuff. Yum! sure to buy this again if it’s fresh.
