COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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…

Can at Havnelageret, Fredrikstad. Hazy golden orange color, off-white head. Peach nose, grapefruit, melon, guava, hint of caramel. Grapefruit taste, mild malty, lemon, resin, floral notes, moderate bitterness, well balanced. Medium body, soft carbonation.

HPDalen (316) - DENMARK - SEP 24, 2016
Can. Pours hazy golden with a white head. There is quite a bit of citrus in the aroma, though predominantly caramel from the malt. I don’t find the aroma particularly pleasant. Nice palate, medium body and carbonation, bitter finish, short. Very balanced flavour, mostly bitter (grapefruit) with sweet for balance. Good, but not spectacular.

Canned. Pours hazy deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruit notes, grapefruit, pine and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up being dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice IPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
