COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The soldiers that dragged the 100 cannons up the side of Little Kennessaw Mountain knew something about fortitude. This ale would not let them down. A piney/citrusy/ danky IPA, Cannon Dragger is aggressively dosed with “C” hops all threw itʼs journey from the grain to the glass. Itʼs pays off, Itʼs a feat of amazing beer strength!

A- pours a cloudy brownish golden hue with a small, frothy off white head that leaves tons of lacing on the way down. s- grapefruit, burnt caramel, bright floral hops T- grapefruit, earthy, sharp bitter hops on the back end. M- thick with ample carbonation D- decent brew, a little rough around the edges and sharp on the back end but good overall.

On tap @ The Porter Bar. Pours bright dark orange with medium fizzy white head. Aroma is medium caramel malt, sweetness throughout, and light citrusy hops in the back. Taste is similar - lightly syrupy sweet caramel malt dominates, dry bitter hops finish out. Some grapefruit and pine notes but light relative to the malt here. Needs a bit more hops, but really nice beer.

1/24/15. 22oz bottle from Five Points. Hazed deep orange pour, almost amber/red, under a really nice off-white head that sticks and coats the glass in lacing. Really nice aroma, citrus, pine, nice and dank, just enough malt backing it up. Really nice flavor, a little old school, citrus, pine, dank, refreshing... I’m actually enjoying this very much! Nice bitterness, not over the top, finishes dry with a lingering fresh hop kick. Tasty stuff!

Pretty strait forward IPA, a solid offering from Burnt Hickory. Heard a lot about this brewery and finally got to try. Would buy this in 6pks if released but not the price for the bomber again for a good standard IPA. Nonetheless a solid offering and I hope to see future releases from these guys. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber bottles on 1/9. Glad these guys are bottling some stuff finally. Solid beers all around this one is no exception. Big malt body, lots of caramel and a bit of candi sugar sweetness. Creamy off white head that lasts forever. Nice lacing. Looking good. Nice grapefruit and light fruity citrus aroma. After the malt the flavor had a lot of the same grapefruit with a touch of bitter resin pine on the finish. Good balance. Good body. Nice for a straight up ipa.

GTAEgeek (1320) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Sample at the Southern Filling Station. Pours clear orange, with a thin, beige head. Citrus, harsh resin, rye, and pine. Very bitter, with a fair malt backbone. Heavy, sticky, and very astringent. Unpleasantly bitter, and overly harsh.

mixmasterob (890) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bomber bottled on 1/9. Clear orange pour with a frothy white head. Nice juicy aroma full of citrus fruits and candied grapefruit and orange zest. Good batch. Flavors were bright and citrusy with a lingering bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel was medium full without bring viscous. Awesome stuff. These guys are legit and their ceiling is high.

jbruner (2560) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange from the bomber with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is nice triple c hops, pine , earth and citrus. Taste follows, nice caramel malt to back it up, sticky mouth, good carbonation. Pretty standard, but didn’t miss on anything either, well done.

Big HUGE orange color with an incredibly consistent head. Full of aromas of pine, citrus, funk, smooth mouthfeel, big bitterness and malts perfectly balanced. So glad to finally see this in bottles!

Fruity aroma. Like seriously, fruit juice. Would never have guessed thus was an IPA.
