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.

tap at brewgrass, north carolina....pours a hazy apple cider brown with a frothy off-white head.... sweet floral hop aroma with a light caramel malt backbone... flavors continued on much of the same. sweet citrus hop profile with a lot of lingering sweetness in the finish. i was looking for more of a bitter bite in the end.

12 oz. bottle that I received as a gift. Pours a hazy gold with a large off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left large patches of thick lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel and pine; somewhat sweet smelling. The flavor is similar with caramel and pine and is a bit sweet. Surprisingly lacking in hops bitterness at the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit slick. I wonder how long this bottle was sitting before it found its way to me? This beer seems a bit tired. Ok as it is, although I wouldn’t mind trying it again with a fresher example.

On tap at Natty Greenes, Greensboro NC on 13 July 2006. Hazy ginger colour. Lots of grapefruity hops. Clean, sharp mouthfeel with plenty of bitterness. Some sweetness but not too sticky and the alcohol is not too hot. A pretty decent DIPA.

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.

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.

Boutip (4654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2009
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color ale with super large foamy head with great retention and super good lacing. Aroma of slightly bitter hops with a medium caramel malt backbone. Taste is also dominated by some caramel malt with notes of medium bitter hops. Body is a bit thin but carbonation is super great with no appearance of alcohol. I thought hops were a bit shy for the style and malt backbone could have more dominant.

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.

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.

Good beer. Quite a bit of malt sweetness but balance with a lot of bitterness not much caramel which works.

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
