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.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is is slightly sweet, some hops. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, a touch of citrus, smooth and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a bit different, and a quality beer.
