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.

Towey1989 (397) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Keg at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, orange peel, peach, grassy hops and resin. Taste of grapefruit, mango, orange, passion fruit, resin and a little caramel sweetness. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, warming, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. As I expected, a powerfully hopped and bitter IPA. A cracking drink with lovely tropical fruit and American hop flavours. Took a while finish though.

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2015
Draft @ Tilquin English beer festival, 2015. Orangée-dorée, col blanc. Arôme est houblonné herbacé et résineux avec un bouquet fruité plaisant et restant au devant des effluves qui se dégagent. Palais présente un profil conséquent niveau des houblons surtout sur le côté résineux, pin rappelant le Chinook et Simcoe Ces houblons confèrent un léger palais huileux des alpha avec un accompagnement malté qui donne un fini sec-orienté grains.

Turtles (235) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2015
Tap @ Oliver Twist Sthlm. Hazy orange, with a compact white head. The aroma is fresh tropical fruit, peach, orange and bitter hops. The taste starts very healthy and fresh, with small bubbles. The finish is sharp and bitter dry of pines, maybe a bit too sharp ending for my taste, still great IPA.
