COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
limited keg and 660ml bottles, special
Once a year we receive the latest crop of hops from the US, intensely aromatic and bursting with potential they’re begging to be put to work. With three times the quantity of hops of our explosive IPA ‘Cannonball’ and even more than our flagship Double IPA ‘Human Cannonball’ we’ve created a fitting tribute to the new hop release with this our annual homage to the hop. ‘Un-Human Cannonball ‘takes IPA to another dimension balancing massive citric aroma, deep tropical fruit flavor and gravity defying drinkability to deliver a hop experience that is out of this world. We’ve done our best for the hops don’t let them down by aging this beer, please drink as soon as Un-Humanly possible!

jmgreenuk (4333) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is grassy nettle hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a smooth woody resin nettle hop bitter palate. It’s all about the hops and the alcohol and the alcohol is pretty well hidden considering the ABV.

Beese (1771) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Draught at the Magic Rock 25 Tap Takeover at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 31 May. Poured a clear golden, with a thick white head and some lacing. Aroma of tinned fruit, mango and straw. Considering the strength, there wasn’t an abundance of alcohol on the nose. Nice apricot flavours, with some caramel and biscuit. Finish was syrup, soft fruit and some citrus hop. Absolutely perfect balance in the palate; again, there was no unwelcome booziness.
