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

Draft. Apple, berry, biscuit aroma but very faint. Deep gold with quickly dissipating head. Fruity, yeasty, boozy... bit smoky too. Interesting and good.

alexmate (138) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Appearance: Amber with a big frothy white head and lacing all down the glass, scores an extra point for a thick head. Aroma is of grapefruit, hops, malt. Taste is of lime, grapefruit, caramel, even some quinine notes, theres some slight roasted sweet coffee and possibly mango or is it lychee? Fairly complex and not as bitter as most IPAs. Magic Rock have never let me down so far. Price Paid: 1 (out of date).

Fisler (458) - 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 (1089) - 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.
