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…

Vighals (2924) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2016
Lys brun tåkete med mye sedimenter, fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Lukter sydhavsfrukter, fersken og noe honning. Fyldig. Kraftig bitterhet, noe sødme fra sydhavsfrukt kommer gjennom. Wow, det var en bitterbombe gitt. Lang.

Rejält fruktig och fin. Gömmer alkoholen bra men har ett trevligt tryck och karaktär. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TEJA (2189) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2016
Draught at Oliver Twist. No head just a tiny lace. Clowdy yellow color. The most intense American hop aroma I have experienced. Clean hop without sulphur . Nice and intense hop taste. Big but good bitterness. Nice balancing body.

Pours into a nice cloud of a deep orange. The aroma hits your nose with a pleasant burst of fruit. The taste has a lovely subtle citrus about it making for a highly refreshing beer.
