From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #65 (June 2012):

LOOK: Weathered amber; tight, tiny-bubbled lace

SMELL: Buckwheat honey, peppery, guava, persimmon, lemon pith, medicinal, estery, yeast, dried grass, toasted bread

TASTE: Smooth, medium bodied, bitter snap, phenolic, ripe tropical fruit, grassy, evergreen, yeast, peppercorn, leafy, porridge; dry, bitter finish

From the first sip, Double Cannon goes right to the palate for a submission. We are not going to tapout, though it doesn’t let up much at all, which of course makes us want to take another sip. A vicious circle that we’ll sit back and enjoy. Great marriage between two thoughts of brewing.

I am pretty sure that this came to me from local, in-person trader, tone77. Many thanks!

From the bottle: "A variation of our 'Loose Cannon' IPA, fermented with a Belgian Dubbel yeast culture - tangy hops with a spicy aroma."; "Another fine mess ...".

I liked the way that this poured, creating two fingers of dense, light-tan head with excellent retention. Color was a deep copper with NE-quality clarity, reminiscent of a shiny, newly minted penny. Nose was big with minty hops; musty, peppery yeast and a bit of alcohol heat. Mouthfeel was surprisingly soft, albeit with a good bit of heat and the flavor was very spicy, as though the hops simply teamed up with the yeast to really bring a bite to my tongue. Finish was extremely dry and moderately hot. Phew! This was quite good for one, but I would not want more than a couple at a time.
