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…

Bottle at home, cask and keg at Sheffield Tap 20/07/11. Plenty of hot punch fruitbowl action going on but the citrics get rather flighty. Needs nailing to firmer backbone.

Hazy amber with little foam on top. Aroma is passion fruit, clove, grassy hops, very intense. Taste is sweet phenolic, some sourness and bitterness as well. Finish is pine cone and more sweetness. Pleasant fine bubbled mouthfeel. A little heavy. Overall quite nice.

SinH4 (2443) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2016
Tap at Zlý ?asy. Aromais cat piss, some old hops, piney and boozy. Taste is bittersweet, with a heavy residual sweetness. Bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel. Not bad, but is this really fresh? I am not sure, although it’s on tap...

Bawelt (489) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUL 10, 2016
Très jolie. Nez très frais, équilibré et riche. Ananas, agrumes (un peu d’orange et pamplemousse) et un fond mangue. Bouche : très agrumes, beaucoup d’orange, des notes très franches de kumquat, de pamplemousse. Finale amère, sèche, très aromatique, surtout les agrumes et quelques traces tropicales. Vraiment bonne.

Pours a hazy golden color with medium white head. Nice aroma, sweet citrus fruits, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, also tropical fruits and pepper. Taste follows the aroma, very citrusy and tropical, with pine and slightly spices, followed by a moderate bitterness on the aftertaste.
