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…

rosenbergh (12016) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2012
330 ml bottle. Batch #2871. From beersofeurope.co.uk.
Cloudy amber golden colour with small to average size off-white head. Delicious bitterish hoppy aroma with resin, pine and fruitiness. Very American hoppy. Strong maltiness and suggestion of alcohol in nose too. Flavour is bitter hoppy with resin. Darkness in flavour of strong maltiness, bitter hops and hints of alcohol. Low carbonation. Aftertaste is bitter hoppy and slightly more gentle than flavour itself. Very good.

DanielBrown (4578) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Aroma is pithy and tropical, with spice and some heat. Flavour is a melange of tropical fruit sweets and a dry finish, which contains both sharpness and smooth malty alcohol. Very good. Nice fragrance and balance.

thewolf (12989) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 2, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Mybrewerytap.
Pours light hazy orange amber with a big, staying, creamy, white head. Lovely plant sap aroma, oily resin, grapefruit, pine, apricot and apple. Medium carbonation, lovely creamy and very dry mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely, caramelly pilsner malts at the centre, a light wheaty touch. All encompassed in a wonderful bitterness. Apricot, oranges, apple peel. Citric and grapefruity bitter with some resin at the end. Almost an IIPA.

4.2
dogbomb (1265) - ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2012
On cask. Opaque pale orange-gold with thin white, but lasting, head. Smells deliciously fruity - like a bag of sweet fruit pastilles. Tastes like the juice left over from a tinned fruit cocktail. Melons, pineapples, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, nectarine and peach. Mellow with a mild bitter kick. Taste belies its ABV. LUSH!
