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…

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.

Nose is light fruity, flavor is soap, orange peel, spices. Medium sweet, light fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting hoppy bittersweet, later more hoppy. Medium body, oily texture, nearly flat carbonation. Easy, refreshing, tasty IPA.

allmyvinyl (6051) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2015
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!

Towey1989 (530) - 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.
