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.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and very floral hops along with some caramel sweet malts. Flavor of pink grapefruit, orange, pine and caramel and bready malt. Well done DIPA and not overly sweet.

Thanks IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours hazy yellow with soapy white head. Nose is caramel, sugary lemon, lemongrassy spice, and citrus hops. Flavor is caramel, sugar, grass, and citrus hops. Medium bodied beer that lingers with hop bite. Nice.

GABF 2006: Hazy amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma was hop foward with citrus and grass notes. Good malt standing right behind it. The flavor was mostly sweet malt with light hop flavor running in the background. Kind of mild on the bitterness in the finish.

Nice and spritzy. Pine and caramel, smooth drinking. Sticky mouthfeel, grainy, malty, a little grassy, not too bitter. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from the brewpub.

emacgee (4006) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Pours a peachy copper amber with a 1 1/2 finger creamy eggshell white head. Nose is weird, smells like rubber and mango, sharp and a bit phenolic. Flavor is sharp as well, fusel alcohol and spicy hops.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle. Deep orange with spotty white suds. Floral, tropical fruit nose with big malty caramel backbone. Flavor is sharply bitter and leaves the mouth very dry. A little too heavy, messy and boozy for me.

Butters (3746) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle at decaturstevo’s Februmergency Tasting for those of us that missed out on Sexual Chocolate ’09 thanks to decaturstevo. Hazy orange pour with wispy off-white head. Lovely soft floral pine hop aroma with some vanilla. Very pleasant floral hop flavor with some small amount of bitterness. Very good actually.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy orange color with thick, foamy off white head that laced the glass. Smells of cotton candy and hoppy grapefruit. Prominent malty caramel flavor accented by alcohol and citrusy hops. Slightly sweet with a pleasant grainy aftertaste. Carbonation is on the low end. Very little hop bitterness.
