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!

merzbeer (8) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2014 does not count
Definitely my favorite Magic Rock beer thus far - reminds me of a perfect mix between an IPA and a barley wine. Very fruity, almost syrupy, although it doesn't taste as though it is 11 - 12%.

Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2014
Despite its surprisingly recessed bitterness, this truly is the hop experience that many a beer drinker would die happy knowing they had experienced it. Pours a dark gold with fantastic pure white lacing. The aroma is simply stellar, apricot, grapefruit, orange, lemon rind, peach, bags of piney resin and honey malt. Initial taste is slightly sweet with notes of honey and caramel as well as a sweet tropical fruits, all which pair beautifully with the slightly oily full body. Further fruit enters the mix, mango and pineapple and the taste starts heading towards heavier, muskier citrus and resin. The finish is very aromatic,medium dry with a citrus based medium bitterness.
