Red, White and Birch! Loose Cannon Cask Tonight!

7 June 2011 No Comment

Come check out this offering today at The J. Clyde!  Already tapped, this beer is incredible.  Lemony, piney, and hoppalicious!  Can’t believe I just wrote that. 

At approximately 7.25%, this IPA delivers a wallop.  They’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. Pairs well with strong cheeses and steak.  2nd Place CAMRA award winner at the 2010 Great British Beer FestivalFrom Heavy Seas website,

“Loose Cannon – This very citrus hop-driven American IPA has its aroma augmented with notes of smokiness, vanilla, and caramel. Marsh has dry-hopped the cask and added hand-toasted slats of Red Oak, White Oak, and Birch: a patriotic Red, White, & Birch, if you will. ”

Hugh Sisson from Heavy Seas will be on hand as well from 7pm on to talk about Heavy Seas and hopefully this beer in particular.

Cheers!
