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.

Taste: Pretty balanced. Citrus and sweet malt flavors combine with a small amout of hop flavor.

Overall – A below average IPA. It has a few of the flavours found in some of the IPA's I've had. Its very sweet and sugary, but still drinkable. Little too sweet compared to what I expect in an IPA.

A .this beer pours a orange color closer to mango looking than oranges. Head does not last long but does have good lacing throughout.

S. very tropical. smells more like a girley drink then a IPA but still very pleasant

T. this is a very done well rounded IPA not to high on the IBU but enough that there is no question this is a IPA. The tropical flavors come out but again not overpowering . very very smooth this one can be dangerous

M. medium mouth feel. would prefer a bit more oily mouth feel .

O. this is a solid IPA and I would recommend it to a beginning hop head all the way to a full blown IPA only drinker.

12 oz bottle from a variety pack. Pours clear orange with a thin, long lasting white head. Aroma is of bready malt, piney, citrusy hops and caramel. Light-medium, slightly tangy body. Biscuit and caramel malt balance large amount of hops on the palate before hops and alcohol take over. Long finish is dry from hops and alcohol. I would prefer less alcohol and more body and malt flavor in this brew.
