Cannonball... Cannonball Coming!

Day #445 Loose Cannon / Clipper City Brewing Company, Baltimore, MD
Previously from this brewery: Barleywine and Barlewyine + The Wire

Tonight I'm getting right down to business - I officially caught up with the times and bought a scanner, so I've been furiously working to take some classic old pictures and get them to the internet.  For example, me at age four or five?
Enough tomfoolery (for the moment), let's get down to a beer review.  Tonight I'm going with a beer I had at TJ's a while back, Loose Cannon from Heavy Seas.  This beer has a clear, light copper color, with a fluffy white head.  There's a nice citrus aroma, and when you take a sip you find pine and lemon, with an earthy dryness, and just the right amount of bitterness.  A really nice beer I could drink all night, if given the chance. Great for a night when you're looking to pick a fight with the hoppiest beer in the bar.
Yar, matey.
Unless I'm missing something, you won't find the name Clipper City anywhere on their website .  However, I still believe Clipper Citythe name of the brewery, and they brew Heavy Seas beer.  I think I know this because that's what it says on Wikipedia, and the internet never lies.

Thing To Think About Today:
Allow me to point out the obvious connection for tonight: Loose Cannon, meet Cannonball, by The Breeders.  Enough said and rather appropriate on a night where I'm pouring over pictures from the 90's.  Love this song!

"I'll be your whatever you want...."
