Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale

Hops, hops, and more hops!!! You have to love hops to love/like??? this beer. Magnum, Centennial, Chinook, Amarillo and Palisade, all of these go into this brew. Three pounds of hops per barrel at 3 different times of processing!!!!

It has a medium golden color, but not much of a head. Though the lacing is pretty good. (below)

Definite hop aroma, there's no doubt about that. It's bitter! Just not good tasting at all, I won't be drinking it again! Too hoppy and bitter, plain God awful!

The bottle says it's: "herbal and aromatic and delicious", it is not, whether it's an American IPA or not!

Loose Cannon also uses Crisp English Pale, Carapils, and Munich malts. The ABV is 7.25% (is that the only good thing??)

The beer is hopped 3 ways - in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped. Winner of the Overall Best of Show Award in the Maryland State Governor's Cup 2005 Competition and voted the #1 IPA by Mahaffey’s Pub. We are very excited about this new product and have decided to make this beer available year round!

Clipper City Brewing Co.

The people at "Mahaffey's Pub" must drunken slobs, they should have thrown this one back, into the sea. Davy Jones Locker needs to keep it under lock and key(preferably losing the key!).

Well...Not the first disappointment I've had and probably won't be the last.

Until next time, save a bar stool and a cold pint for me!
