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. Cloudy gold with a frothy white head. Nose is funky, sweaty hops, a little metallic, some tropical fruit. Palate is sweet tropical fruit, quite light bodied, then an incredibly long bitter finish. Superb.

Pours golden yellow with a large white head which remains for a while. Aroma is tropical fruits, lychee, mango and slight piney, earthy aromas. Taste is sweet mango, sweet marmalade, slight earthiness, pine and a moderate bitterness throughout.

Mad_Ferret (835) - SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2015
Draught at Bishops Folkis. Golden with soft haze and a white head. Hoppy grapefruit aroma with zest and minerals. Fairly dry mouthfeel with more grapefruit/citrus, wet stone, zest and a slight malt sweetness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.

weordie (479) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2015
Pours golden with a thick, foamy head. Aroma is strong grapefruit with hints of pine. Very fresh, citrus notes to start that gives way to a sharp bitterness.

Heidbummer (13) - SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2015
Great IPA. Loads of hops. Good aftertaste. Obviously not a session beer, but well up there with many DIPAs, and very drinkable. Half on keg Euston tap.

niquillis (2136) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2015
Keg at Hop Inn, Newcastle under Lyme. Pours golden with white froth. Well balanced drinks way below it’s ABV. Sweet tropical fruit, light bitterness. Well balanced and bloody lovely.

cesarpball (13) - Badajoz, SPAIN - NOV 10, 2015
Recién enlatada esta cerveza es espectacular. Color: Ligero dorado con una espuma simpática Aromas: Se notan muy finos los aromas al igual que muy frescos. Melocotón, marucayá y pino. Trago: El trago es suave sin llegar a notarse los 7.4% de alcohol. Bien balanceada entre maltas y lúpolos. Carbonatación suave
