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!

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
660 ml bottle. 2014 version, 11% ABV. Thanks me, myself & I. Pours a golden colour with a white foamy head. Aroma is very heavy with citrusy bitterness, mango, orange juice and pineapple. Rich flavour of citrusy bitterness, alcohol, pineapple, tropical fruits, grass and sweet caramel. Full bodied and very thick mouthfeel. Heavy, long, warming and bitter finish. Could use even more bitterness, or maybe this isn’t as fresh as it’s supposed to be. ABV is just right.

660ml bottle, thanks lusikka!

2014 edition, 11.0% ABV. BBE AUG 2014 - Pours clear orange with some hop particles and a foamy head. Aroma has massive amounts of fresh resinous hops, pine, caramely malts, exotic fruits and grapefruits. Taste is fresh hoppy, resinous and piney with some caramely malts, exotic fruits and grapefruits. Finish is smooth, sweetish and resinous hoppy but surprisingly not very bitter, with loads of pine and warming alcohol. Quite smooth and heavy DIPA with loads of resinous hops. Tasty and fresh, but could’ve used some more bitterness.

66 cl bottle @ home, BBE 08/2014. Thanks lusikka!
Aroma has strong hops, gooseberry bush and exotic fruits. Also some gluey tones. Flavour has aggressive hops with gooseberry bush, some caramel, fruits and gluey tones. Also some pineapple juice and alcohol is present. Nice, but I expected more.

Garrold (1470) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Tap at Brewdog, Sheffield. 11%. Lightly hazy, golden colour. Thin, lasting, white head. Aroma of pineapple and lime jelly. Clementine, too. Taste is marmalade sweet, first off, then restrained bitterness. Smooth, creamy palate. Alcohol warmth is evident. The clementine pops up again, at the end, along with a long, gentle bitterness on the finish. Dangerously drinkable!

jerd16 (207) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
UPDATED: APR 24, 2014 Golden body, with small fleeting off-white head. Aroma is wonderfully intense. Fresh dank hops, grapefruit, mango, pine, some sweet caramel malt. Soft carbonation, with silky medium/full body. Quite sweet initial burst, with peach, citrus, pine, alcohol before a moderate-bitterness takes hold. Very dank. Sweet malt balances the beer beautifully. A little short on the finish for my palate but lovely nevertheless. Nice and fresh in taste and flavor. Chewy and luscious, with a slight nudge from the alcohol. Quality big beer. Did not disappoint.

minutemat (1761) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
660ml bottle at home (thanks Robin!). Lovely bright morning citrus breeze on opening, pours gold with an encouraging bubbly head. First thing that hits is a tropical fruitiness before the alcoholic bitterness washes over.. another sniff and lime, grapefruit, orange and passionfruit all take a juicy lunge at you. It’s an incredibly easy-drinking beer for 11% but sadly the carbonation just doesn’t hold up long enough and things get a bit sleepy in the glass. I do like the taste, but can’t help feeling a bit disappointed in this regard.

Oh sweet sweet nectar, you go down far too easily for a 12% ipa. Wonderful mind-blowing resinous hop happenings, makes your mouth water like an opal fruit.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014

Apr 2014 - Keg at the opening night at Craft Inslington. Clear yellowy orange, lightly sparkling, small white head. Aroma - light orange, peachy caramel. Body is medium, carbonation is light, quite smooth. Taste is sweet, strong grapefruit, light vegetable and resin, background lemon and a touch of booze (but not drinking like it’s 11%). I feel like Magic Rock over-hyped and under-delivered on this one. Decent though. (3.6)

Apr 2014 - Cold 660ml bottle. BB Aug 2014. Hazy orange, almost totally still, small bubbly white head. Aroma - grapefruit, mango, perfume and alcohol. Body - medium, slightly foamy in the mouth, spritzy carbonation. Taste - grapefruit and pine. Flavour isn’t covering up the alcohol, which comes through strongly. For the price, it’s a flop. (3.6)

Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, hoppy, sweet riped fruity hops. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130815]

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
On tap at Haand Festival. A small, off-white head sits on top of an unclear, orange-golden body. The aroma has peaches, some alcohol and lots of grapefruit. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, trying to deal with the malty sweetness. Peaches, grapefruit and warming alcohol too. It’s full-bodied, with a quite stinging hoppyness. Sure, it’s nice, but a bit too intense I think. Less alcohol would do good. 130525
