Heavy Seas Loose Cannon on cask with Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial, and Palisade Hops
Al’s of Hampden recently received some casks from Heavy Seas, so I decided to try the Loose Cannon with Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial, and Palisade hops. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy tan head. The aroma consists of grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, and pine. The taste is nice and citrusy with lots of grapefruit, orange, tangerine, lemon, and pine. The finish is creamy due to cask conditioning. The alcohol content is 7.25% ABV. This was a nice and bitter beer with a great with creamy accent. If you see this on cask somewhere, definitely crab a glass, and the creaminess goes great with the citrus flavors.
