Clipper City Heavy Seas Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale
best before jan 09 on the label
Poured at refrigerator temperature into my pint glass this beer is a slightly hazy sedimented orange / gold with a one finger foamy cream colored head. Fuzzy sticky lace coats the side of the glass.
Scent is noticeable before I even raise the glass. Strong grapefruit hops, herbal hops, resinous pine hops and a hint of fresh bread. Delicious!
Taste is strong puckering grapefruit, sweet citrus (tangerine?), herbal, spicy with a fresh salty sea breeze tang. Spicy and salty on the lips and side of the tongue. I'd swear I've actually eaten a ripe red grapefruit from the sweet / sour taste lingering in my mouth.
Mouth is a creamy, coating medium, with a slight warmth and a nice bitterness and astringency.
Drinkability is very very good.
Wow. This is a fantastic IPA.
