Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that it will begin the Taproom Exclusive Release of Joose Cannon: Glacier Froot, the fourth release in the brewery’s Joose Cannon Series, during the weekend of Friday, September 4.
Developed to be a sports-drink-inspired take on the brewery’s flagship Loose Cannon IPA, Joose Cannon: Glacier Froot is a Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale dry-hopped with Citra, Mandarina Bavaria and Simcoe Cryo/Lupulin Powder and then infused with cherry and cranberry juice and strawberry purée. Coming in at 7.25% ABV, Glacier Froot “combines berry and citrus to create an IPA that will quench your thirst on the hottest of days—no electrolytes needed.”
“We’ve brewed our fourth version of Joose Cannon with the usual oats, wheat and a dose of lactose to provide a satisfying, hazy IPA,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Chris Leonard. “This time we’ve dry-hopped it with Citra, Mandarina Bavaria, and Simcoe Cryo/Lupulin Powder to provide juicy aromas of lemon, orange, tangerine and pineapple. Then, we went ahead and added cherry and cranberry Juice along with a strong helping of strawberry puree. Citrus and berry flavors make for a most satisfying, quenching hazy IPA experience.”
4-packs of 16 oz. cans of Joose Cannon: Glacier Froot will be available for curbside pickup at the Heavy Seas taproom beginning on Friday, September 4. This Limited Release offering is a taproom exclusive release and will not see distribution. Prost!

Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that it will release Joose Cannon, a Hazy Juicy IPA brewed with tangerine, exclusively in its taproom on March 8, 2019.
Arriving as the first offering to come out of Heavy Seas’ 15 bbl brewhouse in 2019, Joose Cannon is a Hazy Juicy India Pale Ale that serves as “an exciting twist on [the brewery’s] flagship IPA, Loose Cannon.” With a hefty amount of oats and wheat supplying the haze, Joose Cannon (7.25% ABV) goes next level with huge tropical and citrus aromas sourced from “an alternate dry-hopping procedure, along with tangerine puree and massive doses of Citra and Simcoe hops.”
“After developing Citra Cannon, we decided we should take the ‘Juicy IPA’ concept to another level. Thus, Joose Cannon was born,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “I was blown away by the aroma and bright, fresh flavor of the tangerine puree, so incorporating it into Joose Cannon was a no-brainer. We’re having a lot of fun with the releases on the 15 bbl brewhouse so far and I am confident this one will make a lot of people very happy!”
Joose Cannon will release exclusively in the Heavy Seas Taproom on Friday, March 8 with availability in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft. This Limited Release offering will not see distribution. Prost!
