COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cannonball is an India Pale Ale in the true tradition, high in alcohol and massively hopped to survive a long sea voyage. We don’ t want you to wait though, crack the cap and let the flavour explode on your palate. Tropically fruity, resinous hops compete against a sweet malty backbone, while a rasping bitterness builds to a mouth puckering crescendo. Our hop bomb might just blow you away…

JackMandarin (368) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - MAY 15, 2017
Can from Bridgend Services, Freuchie. Pours with lots of suspended haze after a really careful pour. A light amber gold in colour. Has a tight, thin white head. Lots of resin. Lots of mango. Some pineapple. Some ripe stone fruit. A little strawberry candy sweetness. Grapefruit and other background citrus oils. Taste has a brief biscuit malt sweetness. Tangy citrus and a light musky tropical note. A pronounced pithiness. A whack of drying bitterness. None of this soft juiciness that is so much more common these days. Lasting bitter finish. A real oily palate. Really solid, resinous, more West than Eastside IPA with Northern grit. Nice to drink a core offering from Magic Rock for the first time in quite a while. Excellent

Good IPA - not my absolute favorite, but fine. Typical England IPA. Not comparable to US West Coast IPAs... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2017 From 32GP. 1 month after bb date (my fault) At Barcelo Mar, in toothbrushes glass. After dinner. Hops are missing punch but its still pleasant, with a sweet and thin highly drinkable body. Will repeat fresh soon. 7 May 2017. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 6x19. Grassy and herbal, with a highly drinkable light body that hides perfectly well its abv. Leaves a nice and refreshing aftertaste

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2017 Puszka 330ml. Metne o zlotym kolorze. Piana biala o duzych pecherzach,zanika szybko. Swietny aromat owocow tropikalnych i cytrusow podparty duza dawka sosnowych szyszek. W zapachu zawarto duzo owocowej slodyczy. Smak bardziej goryczkowy o ciekawej nucie grejfrutowej i dojrzalego mango. Cytrusy i owoce mieszaja sie w swietnych proporcjach. Porzadna IPA

Nice lemon like Aroma. Though kind of shy. Dark orange color. Top went flat quickly. Very low carbonation. Tastes like tea with some lemon juice. Light roasting in aftertaste. Overall quite simple but still enjoyable.
