Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a snifter glass; best if consumed by 26 August 2018.
A: Pours a crystal clear, orange color with a less than quarter inch, white head, low to non-existent retention and little lacing.
S: Very fruity. Predominantly a blood orange aroma with maybe a touch of tropical fruit.
T: Dry. Big blood orange flavor with some grapefruit and caramel. Bitterness strong and reminiscent of tobacco and cumin.
M: Light bodied with very light carbonation.
O: Described as a citrus IPA. Really a different presentation of the American IPA style. Very fruity, bitterness perhaps a bit too strong, but certainly different and drinkable.

The "Best By" date on the bottle was late February 2018. I bought it nearly a month later, not looking at the bottle before purchase. I just wish some of these breweries would STOP putting a "best by" date and instead include a "bottled on" date so I would know how long it's been sitting on the shelf. The distributor where I bought this beer advertises a lot of "fresh" beers. Not so much this one, of course!

This beer (even though it's gone beyond its "best by" date) was still "good". However, it's way too fruity with very little hop taste. If Heavy Seas would cut back on the citrus taste (perhaps too many flavors) and more on the hops, it would be better overall, at least to me. I much prefer their Loose Cannon HOP3 IPA instead.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. best by 3/18/18.

slightly hazy yellow body with good white fluffy head leaving decent lacing.

aroma is strongly of citrus and non citrus fruit.

the problem here, is that there is just TOO much fruit. like drinking slightly fermented fruit juice. there is a faint hop bite, but it's eaten up by the fruit.

mouth is above medium, finish is fruit.

overall, while i appreciate a it of fruit taste in an IPA, but they put a quadruple load in this particular cannon.

Nice citrus smell. Pours a golden color with white head. Head dissipates quickly with some subtle lacing. Tastes like blood orange and grapefruit, and finishes with a malty and hoppy IPA taste. Overall a nice, drinkable IPA thatll sneak up on you!

Very nice strong citrus smell, specialy the blood orange. Good balanced taste but average.
