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!

Bottle brought back to Yorkshire from the launch at Craft Co. Slightly hazy, very fresh new age hop aroma citrus, tropical fruit, mango, floral, fresh cut grass and slightly spicy/herby.Rich body, slightly syrup like, oily followed by amazing hop flavours. Slight bitterness could do with more bitterness but it tastes so fresh, sweetish caramalt-like finish .Reminds me very much of The Kernel Breweries stronger beers. Looking forward to next years version.

Bottle with a huge thanks to Ben! This beer rocked my world. Pours cloudy orange, medium off-white creamy head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, passionfruit, wonderful tropical citrusy. Flavor is the same, very tropical fruity, just a touch of cat piss. Light sweet, medium bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, some warming. This just might be my new favorite DIPA. Wow. Go England!

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.

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.

Tried at Craft beer Co. Very worried about my state of mind after drinking this but I threw caution to the wind. Delicious beer, nothing i’m used to but at my age worthtrying everything, very hoppy. Had a lovely sleep after trying this.

Bottle courtesy Beehive. Wow wow wow. This is a cheesy velvet monster alright. Dirty orange and cream head. Massively funky aroma. Massive creamy funky hoppy taste ! Then luxurious on the palate like being caressed by something with velvet fingers. Made of cheese. Epic beer!!!

Loved it. Gorgeous balance, some juicy hops from tropics with a smoothly gentle caramel balance. Warm, hidden abv. Share with Dom, beers are always better shared. Especially with him.

660ml bottle from The Beerhive. Frothy white head with some lacing. Hazy amber body. Nose is all hops, pine with some tropical fruit. Body is grapefruit, caramel, treacle, burnt sugar. A fair bit of alcohol coming through. Aftertaste is light bitterness with molasses and dried fruit. Good full mouthfeel, medium carbonation. This is a brilliant beer, strong but not overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
