Cannonball Gold is a bright, refreshing end to summer; a herald of the harvest season and all the good things that come with transitions. Snappy, biscuity malt with a crackery-bready note, there are hints of summerís brilliantly crisp quaffs, but the carpet-bombing of freshly harvested "wet" hops bring bitterness and tons of grassy, herbal hop aromatics. As the sip lingers, things get tangled in transition, with notes of red apple, overripe watermelon rind, and powerful candied grapefruit. Is it a summer beer, or a fall beer? The only way to tell is to revel in the transitory, to give in to uncertainty, and above all else, to drink this beer fresh! The "wet" hops used in Cannonball went from their chlorophyllic roots to our kettle in a matter of hours, and their powerful aromatics fade fast, so be sure to drink heartily; in a blink, this special beer will be gone.
