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…

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle, Coopers8til8, Newcastle. Another British triumph in producing a true IPA. Beautiful soft grapefruit aroma, faint caramel, allowing the hoppy characteristics to shine on the palate. No harshness, no excessive sugariness, a touch of warmth at the very end, this is a mighty impressive beer.

Tasted not great. Lots of hops on the nose and tongue with an unfamiliar flavour which failed to impress.

4.2
Leighton (21296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2011
Keg at the Craft Beer Co., thanks to Chris. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a lingering, white foam head. Notes of grapefruit and pine in the nose. Great flavor, medium sweet with a dynamic hop profile, bits of pine, some cat pee, some grapefruit and other citrus. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Nice finish, some hops, hop oils, but still enough malty sugars to stand up.
