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!

Johnstledger8 (671) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 14, 2016

allanmb (150) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Pours slightly hazy orange with thin white head. Aroma is dry pine hops with a hint of oak and passion fruit. Very faint hint of funk/Brett. Taste is more barley wine with good carbonation rather tag hoppy ipa. I expected more. Good carbonation for the ABV and great mouth feel for an IPA. There is a hint of tropical fruit with dry, semi bitter finish.

Plovmand (7755) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2016
From tap at CBC 2016. It pours hazy golden with a white head. The aroma is spicy and tropical fruity hoppy. Sweet juicy fruity flavor. Sweet malty notes. Long fruity finish.

MrOrla (2125) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2016
Tap cbc. Pours orange with a white head. Aroma tangerine, tropical, very hoppy, malty, light boozy. Taste is quite tropical, tangerine and fruity, heavy.

Hanoi (801) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle. Nose is pleasant but muted for the style: malt, marmalade, honey, booze, gentle tropical fruits. Taste is marmalade, pine, leading to pineapple, hints of lychee, tropical juice, then a bone dry resin finish. Moutfeel is slick. It’s a very nice beer, but such is the volume of high quality DIPA in the North of England in 2016, it doesn’t have the impact it would have had, had I drank it 5 years ago.

Ungstrup (33993) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2016
A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt, fish, and petroleum. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, over ripe fruits, yeast, and grass, leading to a dry finish.

likeatrainwreck (420) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Pours hazy golden yellow with a big white head. Massive tropical fruit aromas that follow through to the taste, along with resinous pine, caramel malt... assertive bitterness, not too sweet. Fantastic beer.

MrTipple (3177) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Aroma: resin, intense tropical fruits, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, pine. Appearance: hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, overripe tropical fruits, heavy sweets emerging, yet very intense bitterness prevailing, grapefruit, resin, pine, very dry and bitter finish. Overall: very nice IIPA, intense, complex, yet not quite with some of the other recent IIPA releases. Bottle from Independent Spirit, Bath.

ManVsBeer (8270) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Keg @ 57 Thomas St, Manchester. Dangerous stuff for its strength, as it’s very fruity and hides much of the aforementioned in its tropical fruit flavours. Pale orange in colour with a thin head, you can feel the alcohol on your breath in its aftertaste. Has lots of tropical fruit aromas.
