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

ACHTUNG ⚠ !!! Stylebomber im Anflug. Jaaaa...und schon lt er seine Ladung Wrzhopfenflavours napalmartig ber einen imaginren Pinienwald gleiten. Oh yes, den Hophead freuts. Hopfenscharf und doch auch unwiderstehlich malzsweet. Bitte, bitte la es nie aufhren 😍. 0,33l CAN von BEYOND BEER HH. Schlappe 2,70. Jeden Penny wert.

0.33 can.
A hazy, gold color and a huge, white head of poor retention. Aroma of pines, tropical fruits, resin, a bit more juice or chewing-gum-like. Taste is bittersweet, hoppy, piney, woody, somewhat earthy. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, not too bitter, quite balanced actually. Overall the beer is simply alright, nothing special, well-balanced.

Bottle, courtesy of minutemat in EuroLocalSwap, many thanks! Pours lightly cloudy yellow with a hint of amber. Little head. Aroma is on the earthy wooden side of the spectrum, with forest floor and pine needles, yet still some tropical fruit. Medium body with lots of residual sweetness, a heavy bitterness and a decent carbonation. All these strong impressions harmonize well though, making for a juice beverage. Palate is medium sweet and has lingering notes of all of the above. Nice.

Pours a orange golden colour. Big grapefruit, peach orange peel nose. Perfect balance of malt into hop bitterness with a bit of pine resin and tropical fruit. One of the best IPAs Iv ever had, the best from Magic Rock !! Insanely good. Need more !

Bue en canette de 33cl. Blonde, effervescence moyenne. IPA classique et efficace. Sur les agrumes, houblons bien frais. Ca le fait bien.
