Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Higravity on 09-09-2005

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.

Graceful is right. I'm not an IPA guy, but this is absolutely a beer I'd drink on a regular basis.

Had this since 09. Loose cannon has definitely changed its recipe. It is smoother with less emohasis on grapefruit flavor that distinguished this from other ipas

Nice easy drinking mildly hopped beer. Lemony, citrusy. Just right amount of mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
