COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strong-style India Pale Ale, deep copper in color witha a big, malty, hoppy palate and dry hopped with Centennial & Antanum for a spicy, citrus aroma. What better name for a big, strong beer than one of the biggest, strongest weapons of the Revolutionary War - the cannonball.

22oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Dark orange almost amber hue with 2 finger thick mostly lasting fizzy white head good lacing. Light fruit, floral, grass, lemon. Floral taste up front with a dry boring bitter citrus finish. It gets much better once it breaths for a bit. I am disappointed that I rated this for my 100th beer.

bomber. This tastes like one of my homebrews. I expect a lot more from a commercial operation. It is mediocre all around.

From bomber. Pours amber with a touch of white head. Mild aroma featuring hops with malt. Tastes the same. Almost seems like a Dirt Wolf wannabe ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Big, sweet tangerine hop flavor comes as a surprise as there is little aroma. Slightly, pleasantly oily. Somewhere between an IPA and a DIPA.

Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours slightly orange with a thin white head. Leaves a bit of lacing. Big grapefruit on the nose. Fairly hop forward on the tongue with a bit of sweetness. Finishes with a bit of bite. Solid!

From tap at Brewery. Wow! The last beer I had at the brewery and the best. Amber with a haze and sticky head. Aroma was malt and fruity hops. Taste was caramel, bread, fruity hops and bitter finish. The ABV was hidden well.

Tap at Natty Greene’s. Pours cloudy amber with a good off white head leaving lacing. Aroma is sweet malty, bready, sweet caramel and fruity. Flavor is very malty, bitter, sweet, spicy, caramel and bitter. Finishes with a good bitter aftertaste with some warming alcohol touch.

Originally reviewed: 4/25/09. Pours a cloudy deep gold with a nice frothy white head on top. Great retention and nice sticky lacing rings. Smells of deep pine scents and flowers. Very nice. Mouthfeel is alot thinner than I would like. Pretty watery. Flavor is very muted hop bitterness. Some citrus in there. This is more like an APA in my mind. The only thing that makes this a double is ABV, and even that is fairly absent. Not bad, but have had better

Bottle. Opaque and murky chestnut, with a small but firm head. The aroma is somewhat mellow, and the beer I easy-drinking. Mild citrus and some musty grassiness. (#4429, 1/1/2012)

Very slightly hazy copper pour topped with an ivory quickly fading head. Nice hop aroma of pine and citrus with a hint of licorice and alcohol. Strong raisin flavor from the malt (common but I don’t care for raisin flavors very much ... especially in an IPA/2xIPA). Citrus flavor underneath. Not as much bitterness as I expected (a bit more would be better in my opinion). Medium-full bodied with medium carbonation. Not bad but a bit too much raisin for my taste that likely biased my review.
