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…

_angst_ (3636) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Draught @ BAJT. Pours hazy golden with a big frothy and creamy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick sticky lacing in the glass. Smell is tiny malty, fruity and slightly grassy with crackers, caramel, grapefruit juice, tangerines, mango, pineapple, moist grass, pine needles, kumquats and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, fruity and slightly grassy. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny astringent, very tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with crackers, caramel, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, moist grass, pine needles, minerals, kumquats and lemon zest. Solid strong IPA. But sweet perhaps... Heavy peppery, almost campariesque, citrus fruits.

Tap@OT. Gyllenaprikos färg. Jag vet, det finns inte, men färg och grumlighet beskrivs bäst så. Doftar grape, citrus och sädesslag. Besk och stram smak. Inte mycket sötma.

flying_pig (1158) - SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Half pint on-tap at Euston Tap, London (£3.30):
Really nice, strong & hoppy with a good bitterness & nice balance. Refreshing & drinkable with the floral & pine flavours working well with the sweetness towards the end; a good beer & one that I’d have again.
