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.

Half pint on-tap at Euston Tap, London (£3.30):
Really nice, strong & hoppy with a good bitterness & nice balance. Refreshing & drinkable with the floral & pine flavours working well with the sweetness towards the end; a good beer & one that I’d have again.

Aroma of tropical fruits, grapefruit, mango, orange, a little malty caramel, some pine, hops. Flavour is light sweet with a good bitter finish. An IPA just the way I like it, tons of fruits and hops. Excellent beer.

Keg at north bar. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aromas of tropical fruits, pine, grapefruit, mango. Taste is all of this and more, bitter finish. I can see why they want a permanent line of this on here. What I don’t get is why they bother making the unhuman version!
