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.

12 oz bottle in a Sam Adams glass. Pours a lovely deep gold with big creamy white head that lingers in and leaves some nice lacing. Big citrus and pine hop aroma with same flavors in the taste but perfectly balanced against the malt backbone of caramel and biscuit. Mild carbonation with a great mouthfeel. An excellent IPA. Also have had on draft and it goes to 11.

A - Pours amber orange with a two-finger, slowly receding off-white head. Loads of sediment in the glass float aimlessly. Left a small amount of lacing.

S - Tropical grapefruit and pineapple, followed by some kiwi and a very small amount of malt.

T - Malty and tropical all at once. Tropical pineapple up front followed by malt. A bit bitter and slightly piney in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O - Overall, It's a good DIPA, but nothing astounding.
