Burnished gold with a rich citrus hop aroma, it is wonderfully drinkable with a big hop flavor. We’ve knicknamed it Hop3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over 3 pounds per barrel! It is hopped 3 ways: in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped.

This is by far my favorite American IPA and might be my favorite overall IPA. I've had it both on tap and bottled. Almost no difference in quality. Overall, this is a great IPA. AMAZING hop flavor, but not overpowering at all. I could drink this all day. Its one of the most crisp and refreshing beers I've ever had. I just hope I can have Loose Cannon on nitro or cask someday. If you ever see this on tap or in a distributor, don't pass it up! Clipper City makes some great beers, but this is their best!
