BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

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!

I don't pretend to be an expert on beer but as someone just getting my feet wet, its hard not to love this one. The first taste is "holy orange peel, Batman!" but then the hops comes through nicely and it evens out very well. Not too sweet. Nice and easy to drink, smells very refreshing.

Clear, bright amber body; one-finger thick head, a bit bubbly but lasting. Sweet, sugary, tropical fruit aroma; tangerine and pineapple. Citrus flavors; orange and lemon; mellow, biscuit-like malt backbone; combination hop and alcohol bite and bitterness; borders on being cloyingly sweet. Medium body; warm; smooth effervescence on the palate; rather dry overall.

A decent, citrus-forward IPA with a nice hop bite and warm alcohol presence.

Can't get past the artificial flavor of this beer. Strangely reminiscent of orange flavored tootsie pops.

Pours bright orange copper with very light fading head. Strong notes of fresh & real bursting blood orange, grapefruit, mango, lemon peel and citrus mask the gentle hops. Nice summer fresh IPA!

Low IBU for IPA at 45 and nice ABV at 7.25%

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.
