Brewer's Description: Our brewers modeled this black IPA after Loose Cannon, with a slight change: it’s almost as if they burnt the brew. Deep-dark ruby, Black Cannon has a roasted character from Blackprinz and Roasted Barley malts, but a heaping portion of hops—in the kettle, hopback, and fermenter—impart flavor and aroma. Floral and pine notes show up in the nose. The mouthfeel is very smooth. (via Heavy Seas)


This beer is pretty smooth. Loose Cannon is a big hit and I've seen this beer in a bunch of different places including my roommates refrigerator. If you ever get a chance, go out to Heavy Seas brewery. They were one of my first microbrews that I would buy in cases.

Dogwood Tavern switches out different Heavy Seas beers on one of their taps seasonally.
