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!

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.

Pours clear golden amber with low white head. Aroma of mango, grapefruit, resin, an explosion of tropic fruit. Taste is big resin bitter and fruit sweet, balanced but slightly boozy. Yet very drinkable considering the ABV. Body is medium to rich with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (3496) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 27, 2014
660 ml. bottle. Very excited to try this rare treat. Thanks Richard! It pours a very clear golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is piney with apricots and honey; also some more subtle fruity notes of mango and peach. The flavor is thick and resinous with pine, honey, florals and peach. The body is oily, but not syrupy at all. The malts come across as honeyed and not caramel or sugary. Great hop character as well. This compares favorably to some of the best triple IPA’s I’ve had including Pliny the Younger. Great stuff.
