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.

A golden amber IPA with a thin white head. In aroma, a doughy malt with loads of citrussy hops, oily and pinhey. In mouth, a rather chalkey mouth with sustained British hops, not as intense as expected, but good. On tap at Great North Carolina Brewers Fest., August 28 2010.

Dogbrick (11614) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Sample from a can at the "Beer Tasting on the Front Porch". The beer pours a clear copper color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and caramel. Medium body with a piney hop character with notes of fruit and caramel malt in the background. The finish is moderately hoppy with a short bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

lots more pine in the aroma, rich dark caramel malt flavor with lots of citrus and pine, sweetness well balanced with a low bitterness that builds towards the finish, not as sticky sweet as before allowing the malt more room to assert itself

phaleslu (9425) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2011
12 oz. bottle from emacgee- thanks again, Ethan! Pours a clear amber color with a three finger-thick, frothy off-white head that leaves a lot of heavy, sticky lacing. Aroma of sweet and bready malts, cereal grains, caramel, and earthy hops. Flavor has a ton of caramel malts, cereal grains, grassy hops, sweet resin, and some herbs and spices. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Just a little bitterness. The hops are certainly there, but the malts really make this a cool beer.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2009
courtesy of jdubfl pours orange, hazy. aroma and taste, hoppy, caramel malts present with a light mix of citrus/pine hops. Not overly boozy, but a nice warming abv sneaks up with the malts and cover the palate.

12 ounce bottle thanks to brentk56. Pours a cloudy orange color with one hell of a thick white foamy head- be careful! The aroma is orange rind, caramel and lemons. The flavor is very nice; probably the most citrus I’ve ever tasted in a hop driven beer, lemons and orange, light malts. Wet. A nice mouthfeel. Enjoyable, a light bitter grapefruit finish.
