Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.25%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our brand new citrus IPA is exploding with bright citrus aroma and flavor. Creating an exciting new variation on our flagship Loose Cannon, TropiCannon clocks in at the same 7.25%ABV as its cousin, but packs a full blast of blood orange, grapefruit, mango and lemon flavor. We've downplayed some of Loose Cannon's piney-ness and amped up the citrus by swapping Centennial and Palisade hops for Amarillo and even more Simcoe. We've introduced dried grapefruit, orange and lemon peel in the brewing process and added mango, blood orange and more grapefruit post-fermentation.

12 oz can with a December 2018 fill date stamp served in a pint glass in August 2018.
Pours amber with a tall, creamy, off-white head. Great lacing and good retention.
Markedly fruity aroma featuring citrus but too much seemingly artificial orange (think orange soda).
Very mild bitterness for style with plenty of tropical and generic citrus in the taste and aftertaste, especially orange. Some hints of artificial fruit flavors here, but much better than the aroma suggests.
Overall: hampered by the aroma, this is still a fine IPA that, at 7.5% ABV, is dangerously drinkable.

Not my cup of tea - reminds me of a orange crush cooler or something. Way too much in-your-face citrus, which buries anything more subtle and interesting that might be going on underneath.

Fruit punch extreme. Big blood orange aroma. Lots of jolly rancher-esq flavor on the finish. A little too much fruit on this. I’ll pass on this next time.

Beautiful dark straw color and a perfect head. Very good head retention. Lots of citrus smell and taste. Good hop/malt balance. Has a slight sweetness at the finish. Overall, this is a great summer brew. Well made!

From the bottle, it pours a clear amber with a nice fluffy head that slowly dissipates. Lots of citrus in the nose - lemony. Pleasant malty flavor with some lemons in the flavor as well. Nice!
