Bottle from a trade with BlackIPA. Pours clear copper color with off white head. Toasted malt aroma with some earthy, piney hops. Toasted malt flavor with some nuttiness, earthiness, and biscuit. Some bitter pine hops. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Shawn. MacBoost (1963) - Victor, 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. thornecb (6159) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2012
Pours deep blood orange into a Sam glass. Off-white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Sweet resin and tropical fruit aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel upfront turning to bitter grapefruit and resin in the lasting finish. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours deep amber with bitter hop notes. Nice lacing leads into a caramel, dense grain, toasted notes, and mild hop bitterness. Finishes with a nice deep flavor.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear red with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of crystal malt along with a few citrusy notes. The flavor is malt with a bit of caramel followed by a wash of moderate grapefruit pith bitterness along with a bit of pine. The initial smoothness from the oatmeal is more than offset by the hops wash. Medium bodied. MadRobin (2989) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2012
On tap at Sticky Lips BBQ in Henrietta, NY.
Clear, nearly opaque deep mahogany with thin creamy head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of pine and citrus with hints of smokey malt.
Taste is hoppy of grapefruit and pine. Caramel malt occasionally sneaks around the hops. A bit of peppery spice also comes through. Not overly bitter. Rather nice.
Medium full mouthfeel with a fine tingling carbonation.
Tasty beer. Reminds me of a black IPA, but with more of an oatmeal character.

Three Heads Loopy is a very clear, sparkling copper ale with a thick, lumpy, off white head that has great retention and lacing. It has a hoppy, grassy aroma with a resiny sweetness. It’s medium bodied, a little chalky at the finish. It has good balance. It’s pretty bitter, but appropriately so. There’s just a very slight hint of sweetness. It tastes grassy, fruity and it seems just a touch roasty. The aftertaste is long and bitter. The oatmeal adds mostly a texture to it. Interesting idea. It’s a stand-up red ale. j12601 (13304) - 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. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bomber. Pours red and orange with a frothy beige head. Floral and herbal hoppiness with some biscuit notes. The flavor is spicy floral hops and citrus rind, with some malty sweetness. Average mouthfeel, verging on creamy. Nice.
