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…

Pours a hazy orange colour. Aroma has typical pine and tropical fruit notes. Taste is similar with a woody flavour at the back. All round good IPA. Think I’m bored with this kind of beer in a way.

erickok (3633) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 30, 2014
Golden body and stable white head. Very hoppy, fresh, modern hop mix, pale malts. Well fermented but a light dry biscuit note still. Really drinkable and refreshing, but minty ending, oddly. Good modern English (as in brewing style) IPA. (On tap at Borefts 2014)

RasmusOtt (1171) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2014
Tap @ BBF 14. Pours clear golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of sweet citrus fruits, mandarin, tangerine, orange, orange peel, pine and overall decent tropical. Some malty notes behind as well. Taste has a malty backbone. Up front you get standard IPA notes with the fruits mentioned in the aroma.

Boomkweket (15) - Boskoop, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2014
BBF2014 - 27-09 / 18:40. Weinig schuim, maar wat een indian pale ale. Hop, fruit, citrus alles komt explosief tot uiting en blijft heerlijk lang halen. Een IPA in optima forma.

@Borefts 2014, donker gouden met beperkte witte kraag, aroma is fruitig, hop, mout. smaken zijn matig zoet, tropische fruit, redelijk bitter, en moutig. afdronk van stevige bitterheid en daar hou ik helaas niet erg van,....

IPA like, but not with very much taste. Reminds me of Spa Rood. Also pepper in it or something? Decent beer.

15cl tasting @ Borefts Beer Festival. Clear golden colour, slim white head. Piny, resinous (!) and tropical fruity hops, crisp bitter bite, soft creamy and sweet malts. Malts and piny character of the hops beautifully go together. Good body, medium carbonation, oily mouthfeel.
