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.

From Immy’s Tasting, growler remaining from RBSG 06. Again, this held up fine with the travel. In fact, this beer was the highlight of the tasting for me. Medium orange copper colore, good head. Rich aroma of grapefruit and random citrus fruits. Flavor of grapefruit, more citrus, floral notes, and a fantastic balancing malt of caramel and biscuit. This hit all the things I look for in an IIPA. You could argue for perhaps more hop assault, but that’s just being picky. Great stuff.

Growler as noted below. Coppery pour with a white head. Big grapefruit nose, decent malt backbone. Flavor is really nice - pine, grapefruit, orange, even something like peach - all over a lightly sweet malt. Body is thick, but not overly so. Another winner from the tasting!

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Tremendous floral floral, piney aroma as soon as I popped the cap. When poured, light hazy, bronze color was also inviting, as was the solid fluffy head. A subtle palate hid the stiff resin-like, DIPA bitterness hopheads so crave. A solid DIPA that I would recommend and buy again.

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.

Growler at Immy’s Tasting on 7-22-06. Unopened and leftover at RBSG so I took this home and into the fridge it went. I believe chris_o purchased this - thanks Chris! Copper bodied. Nose is hoppy, malty, and citrusy. Taste is malt with loads of hops, pine, and citrus fruits. Body is medium-full and chewy. Light oily feel as well. Finishes with more furits (melon, pear and tangerine), sweet amlts, caramel, hops and pine. Nice stuff!

Great beer. Extreme at both ends of malt and hops, but balanced beautifully.

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.

12oz bottle via Secret Santa Summer 2009-Pours a hazy orange with a huge dense beige head. Nose is subdued but orange and sweet resiny hops. Starts sweet and ends bittersweet. In the middle are some fruity juicy hops..tangarine, pineapple, orange, a liitle grapefruit and a bit of pine. Also some crystal malts are evident. Anti dry finish....but not overly sweet... Body is full and she is full of sticky resin. Carbonation is medium. A pretty tasty above average IIPA. Oh, and this reminds me a little of Pizza Port Wipeout...which is a good thing to be reminded of!

bottle courtesy of emacgee, thank you. pours a deep but crisp amber with a dense and creamy off white head that leaves some lacing and spotting. the aroma and taste have a ton of sweet biscuity crystaly malts, very malty iipa, but i really like it since its a great malt profile. its still highly hopped, and the hop profile is equally as balanced. overall a nice brew, very drinkable, though more like an asa to me.

This has a murky orange body with a brownish orange head. Serious lacing here. The aroma is rife with grapefruit, orange zest, and pine atop a strong sweet malt scent. Thick bodied, it has a sturdy caramel body with enough hop bitterness to make this hophead smile. The finish is a prolonged citric and pine bitterness. Not too shabby.
