Cannonball is an India Pale Ale in the true tradition, high in alcohol and massively hopped to survive a long sea voyage. We don’ t want you to wait though, crack the cap and let the flavour explode on your palate. Tropically fruity, resinous hops compete against a sweet malty backbone, while a rasping bitterness builds to a mouth puckering crescendo. Our hop bomb might just blow you away…

Pours clear amber with a rich white head. A deep resin aroma. Dry with a powerful bitter finish that's a bit too long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

_angst_ (3721) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Draught @ BAJT. Pours hazy golden with a big frothy and creamy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick sticky lacing in the glass. Smell is tiny malty, fruity and slightly grassy with crackers, caramel, grapefruit juice, tangerines, mango, pineapple, moist grass, pine needles, kumquats and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, fruity and slightly grassy. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny astringent, very tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with crackers, caramel, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, moist grass, pine needles, minerals, kumquats and lemon zest. Solid strong IPA. But sweet perhaps... Heavy peppery, almost campariesque, citrus fruits.

Tap@OT. Gyllenaprikos färg. Jag vet, det finns inte, men färg och grumlighet beskrivs bäst så. Doftar grape, citrus och sädesslag. Besk och stram smak. Inte mycket sötma.
