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.
