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…

sarauckelman (383) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Cloudy marmalade with dissipating head. Faint aroma, of mineral, saline, and dishsoap. Light bodied, hoppy, and tasting of mango. I don’t find it either as resinous, malty, or bitter as described.

A bit of nice , although it is a lot cloudier than I expected. Fruiter too, but the dryness at the finish is amazing and just makes you want more, but the amarillo might just be too cranked up and that fruit body will beat you in giving up. However an afternoon with this would be a blast.

Bardzo karmelowy smak. Aromat lekko słodkawy, tropikalny. Mętne z dobrą goryczką. Mimo tak dużej zawartości alkoholu, jest znakomicie wyważone. Ogólne wrażenie nie powala.
