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…

Sorry Magic Rock, in my opinion It’s just not very good. Any flavour has been beaten to death by the alcohol. It’s as unbalanced as a one legged hurdler.

Ambro206 (90) - 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.

zacgillbanks (2088) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottles from The Bottle, York and Coppers, Newcastle. Golden coloured with sweet melon, passion fruit and pineapple flavours followed by pine on the creamy zesty juicy fruit, warming finish.

mkel07 (3004) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2014
On tap at Brewski. This is a pretty decent beer with a big alcohol whack in the finish. Not one to be rushed.

merzbeer (8) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2014 does not count
As far as English IPAs go, this one is pretty decent. A light amber color with an off-white head. Very resinous odor, with a floral and fruity taste. Only slightly bitter. Not super piney, but very flavorful.

Sad24 (60) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Drinking at the Pivni and York. £5.40 a punt. But perfect. Smells, tastes and looks like an ipa should. Strong in alocohol but pretty smooth to drink
