Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Loose Cannon - American Hop3 Ale

Burnished gold with a rich citrus hop aroma, it is wonderfully drinkable with a big hop flavor. We’ve knicknamed it Hop3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over 3 pounds per barrel! It is hopped 3 ways: in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped.

Is this beer an IPA? It's not even in the same universe as Dogfish Head 60' IPA. It's a pretender of the worst kind. Frankly I can't even classify it. It's that neutral. Sorry, based on the glowing reviews, most typically accurate, I had very high expectations. Yet on a scale of 1 to 10, my disappointment is a 10, and this beer is a 1 as an IPA. Hopefully, I can pawn this beer off on an unsuspecting friend.;)
