A- 4 Nice looking clear golden color with a bit of an orange tint. There's a big creamy off-white head on the pour that settles to a fine, uniform layer through the drink. Ultra smooth tiny bubbles lace the walls and leave spotty sticky remains all over. The carbonation is visible as bubbles dance inside the glass.
S- 4.5 The big hop combo in this brew combines to form a hoppy, citrusy scent that lasts but a few seconds. This turns to a sweeter floral aroma. Very nice blended smell shooting from the Cannon.
T- 4.5 Much like the aroma, the Loose Cannon tastes nicely balanced, with a hoppy grapefruit right up front that is followed by a moderate malt sweetness that keeps the hops just in check.
M- 4 This brew feels crisp going down and smooth on the finish. It is just a little sticky and not as creamy as I'd like, but the carbonation is sufficient. Leaves a dryness behind.
D- 4.5 A great IPA is what I think I'll call the Loose Cannon. Intrigued by its name and label, and being a fan of the style, I thought I should give this a shot. I'm sure glad I did; I will definitely buy this again. Although its color could be more exciting, it has a wonderful bubbly action and ultra smooth, sticky head. It really packs a punch with its floral and citrus aroma that had me wanting to dive right in, and the flavor doesn't disappoint. It was tasty and balanced. Although slightly dry, I could put down several of these bad boys. The dryness just makes me want more! I will definitely get this brew's name out there to my friends.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Two finger head, clear golden color. Nose is citrusy (orange/grapefruit/pineapple) and hoppy - smells incredible.
Taste is similar to the smell, but the hops are more pronounced. Not overly carbonated. For a triple hopped IPA it isn't as aggressive in the hop flavors as it could be - not for drinking quickly, but definitely more drinkable than some similar beers. Could probably appeal to hopheads and those less enthusiastic about aggressive beers.
Overall a very good beer, one I'd like to keep around. Glad I picked it up on my way back from Baltimore.

On tap in a pint glass.
A- Golden-orange color, big off-white head, fluffy. ample amounts of all kinds of lacing. Bubbly.
S- Piney hop aroma, some citrus and malts.
T- It's malty paired with those piney hops and earthy floral flavor.
M- Big body, thick and resinous. Well carbonated. Long hope bite finish.
O- Big hop profile that is not overly bitter. Better tan I expected.
