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…

Draft. Apple, berry, biscuit aroma but very faint. Deep gold with quickly dissipating head. Fruity, yeasty, boozy... bit smoky too. Interesting and good.

Niksko (571) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2016
Can. Pours a hazy golden with fluffy off white head. Nose is pineapple, passionfruit, grapefruit. Flavor is vibrant, resinous, passionfruit and grapefruit, heady, a little piney on the finish, sweet citrus fruits on the mid palate from a mixing of malt and hops. Medium body, highish carbonation. Don’t feel the 7.4%, drinks like a less strong beer. Very tasty, really intoxicating hop character.

ciocanelu (895) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 25, 2016
Really hazy yellow color with creamy white head and lots of yeast sediment on the bottom of the glass. Aroma is really dank and grassy but also with nice pineapple and papaya notes. Taste starts juicy and slightly sweet, continues with grassy/dank hop notes and finishes with just the right amount of bitterness. Medium to full bodied with just the right amount of carbonation. Overall this is one of the best IPAs from Europe. It pretty much goes the same direction as the New England style IPAs.

fletchfighters (1374) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2016
330 Ml can hazy straw yellow color. thin white head that remains a good while. Bits of spotty lacing. Nose is hay, straw, citrus, fruit, and oddly enough hop pellets. Nice nose. taste is somewhat yeast like, with lots of citrus and pine. Back has a lot of grapefruit peel and dough. a bit malty and a bit fruity at the same time. Works pretty well overall.

allanmb (95) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Pours mostly clear golden with good white head. Immediate smell of American hops when opening the can! Aroma is dominated by tropical fruit and pine hops but a good amount of malt in there too. Good carbonation and mouth feel. Taste is of orange and lime zest with grassy, piney hops. Hint of toffee and biscuit before a long bitter finish.

Davros (2611) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2016
Pours pale amber with a fading head. Nose shows grapefruit, pine, resinous hops and clean sweet malt. Flavours include more pine and resinous hops, light clean malt, soft gooseberry and an assertive bitterness.

guzgorog (637) - FRANCE - MAY 9, 2016
Robe blonde paille, trouble, mousse blanche moyenne. Nez citron et pins, légère touche de biscuit. La bouche est intense, sur les houblons résineux bien balancés par une base maltée bien présente et l’alcool. Le corps est assez rond, la longueur très bonne et l’amertume est puissante ! Chouette IPA dans le style américain.
