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.

Poured a golden amber with a 1 finger head. Some lacing present.

Smells of citrus - tangerines, grapefruit, a little orange, along with some malt sweetness.

Taste matches the nose pretty well. Orange with tangerine, pretty strong malt sweetness with a little bitterness in the finish.

Nice medium mouthfell and well carbonated.

Overall this is a good, solid IPA. Nice flavor, glad I had it and I'll have it again.

On tap in a pint glass.

A - Really nice appearance. A lot of lacing, pretty dark for an IPA, but the room isn't very bright. Looks like a golden orange.

S - Not really getting a lot on the nose. A little citrus hops. Not too interesting.

T - Nice citrus hop taste with a decent bitterness at the end. No alcohol at all. It's a slightly above average IPA in the taste department.

M - Pretty smooth. No alcohol burn, pretty drinkable. On the thinner end of medium bodied.

O - Not bad. Slightly above average, but nothing fantastic. I wouldn't seek this out. Nothing wrong with it, just not too interesting.
