Heavy Seas Beer Double Cannon

What the brewers say

“Massively dry-hopped, with a balanced malt sweetness. Hops cubed, then squared (hops to the sixth)! We’ve kept the same malt recipe proportions as Loose Cannon, capturing its beautiful balance, but doubled the fire power.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Rich and complex candied orange and pineapple with some pine. Extremely effervescent. Just great! Low-medium malt sweetness is there as is low alcohol sweetness. As the beer warms, the aroma centers on earthy dank pine hops.”

Flavor: “Hops profile is explosive! Tropical flavors, citrus-peel bitter, lightly caramel sweet, lingering bitterness.”

Overall: “Smooth and well rounded, this hits all the IIPA notes. Tasty and full with appealing lingering bitterness.”
