Heavy Seas Loose Cannon Hop3

Today I had a Loose Cannon, a mixed drink, and a Yuengling.

It had a pleasant smell, but I didn't know how to describe it.

There was a slight bitter aftertaste. It was pretty strong, but not terribly strong, and had no bite.

7.25% ABV. 12 fl oz bottle.

The beer had a lovely IPA smell. I could smell the hops! I smelled it and couldn't wait to taste it; it smelled nice.


It didn't have a bite, and there was little to no carbonation. I definitely prefer less fizz to more. 12:44 AM

The lingering aftertaste was a little bitter.

The purchase before date wasn't notched. The year choices were 11 12 and 13. 12:47 AM

*An interesting coincidence: the previous two entries occurred almost a year apart (20110203, 20120213) and their entries were entered almost a year apart (20110420/20110421).

Approx 7.25% ABV

Burnished gold with a rich citrus hop aroma, it is wonderfully drinkable with a big hop flavor. We’ve nicknamed 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. Pairs well with strong cheeses and steak. 2nd Place CAMRA award winner at the 2010 Great British Beer Festival
