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…

On tap at Craft Beer. Hazy amber beer, small white head. Nice nose with touches of Nelson and Citra hop. Soft smooth palate. Creamy malt with nice hop flavours of rich orange and tropical fruity. Finishes soft and semi dry. This is good stuff - I could have taken this for a Kernel beer and I can think of no higher praise for an English brewed IPA. Original rating 3.8.

On tap at Old Fountain after an evening drinking some excellent beers at Brewdog Camden - Magic Rock held their own with Cannonball. This time it was the depth of the fruity hops that really got me - so rich and with real prescence. This is a great beer!
