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…

Tap at S&A - strange brew - hoppy nose promised lots - kinda sour taste - not the expected sweet mat/hop bomb - surprising light body - interesting for one drink - just a bit too weird for me.

wihlan (227) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
Fat på the Rover - lite fruktig. Hyfsat ljus med vitt skum. Tydlig beska någon sötma från malten.

Ambro206 (105) - ITALY - JUL 4, 2014
Bella birra dalla schiuma pannosa. Al naso leggeri aromi tropicali di luppolo. In bocca decisamente sbilanciata tutta sull’amaro che rimane persistente ed invasivo nel retrogusto.

On tap at Brewski. This is a pretty decent beer with a big alcohol whack in the finish. Not one to be rushed.
