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

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle at home, cask and keg at Sheffield Tap 20/07/11. Plenty of hot punch fruitbowl action going on but the citrics get rather flighty. Needs nailing to firmer backbone.

KikoDucky (158) - Trenčn, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2017
Cloudy orange-golden colour. Strong citrusy aroma, grapefruits, oranges, tangerines, hints of herbs and caramel. High bittery and juicy, refreshy taste. Clasical us-hops tastes of citrusies, peaches, some garden berries. Very drinkable, good job!

Fisler (446) - Bamberg, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2017
Milchig trb im Glas, unglaublich fruchtig in der Nase, dabei nicht zu knallig. Im Trunk ebenso harmonisch, im Abfang dann alkoholisch, leichte Sure. Super komponiert.

Martin243 (1079) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
A text book IPA from central casting. Peachy citrus aroma, fruit salad penny chew flavour, big hops, warming alcohol. Not very subtle, so perfect for the last beer of the day after quaffing around York.

Oranje kleurig troebel bier met een schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. Aroma: fruitige tropische hop, wat oude hop, kaas achtig. Smaak: fruitig, hars, wat mout en redelijk bitter. Lekker

This beer used to be the best English made west coast IPA. Since about April 2016 it has gone down hill, still really good mind, but not how it used to be. Once I had it and it was clear with some hop haze, this time it looked like water down yeast.
