COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Meet Cannonball’s big brother; we used more malt, more hops and more magical conjuring to crank up the flavour of our explosive IPA ‘Cannonball’. Get your taste buds ready for massive pine and candied orange aromas combined with bitter/sweet grapefruit and mango flavours all complemented by a deeply composed, satisfyingly malty base. Ever wondered what it feels like to be shot out of a cannon? Here’s what it tastes like…

Tap@OT. Grumlig gyllengul färg med vitt skum. Doft av grape, ananas och lite honung. Skön och massiv beska balanserat med bra sötma. Fyllig munkänsla och med lång eftersmak.

Pours murky apricot with a finger of white head. Aroma of citrus, light resin, grapefruit and caramel. Taste is rich resin hoppy with a fruit and caramel sweet backbone before a lingering bitter finish. Light to medium full body with soft carbonation.

Nische (1221) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2015
Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The aroma is pine, peach, caramel, passion fruit and sweet malt. The flavor is high fruity, malty and has citrusy and piney notes. Very drinkable for the ABV, yummy stuff!

TimE (4144) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 12, 2015
Hazy golden color. Frothy white head. Light tropical fruit nose. Super rounded well balanced. Pine, wood, slightly heady with tangerines in the mouth. I am guessing EKG is in there. Really nice mouth feel, but finish is a bit abrupt with modest bitterness.

tricksta_p (2069) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2015
Aroma of sweetish fruits, tropical fruits, orange, mango, malty caramel, pine, big hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a solid bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice balance between fruits and malts, leaning toward fruits, which is just the way I like it. Hope to drink this beauty again soon.
