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

Sorry Magic Rock, in my opinion Its just not very good. Any flavour has been beaten to death by the alcohol. Its as unbalanced as a one legged hurdler.

Ulysse (489) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2017
Nice lemon like Aroma. Though kind of shy. Dark orange color. Top went flat quickly. Very low carbonation. Tastes like tea with some lemon juice. Light roasting in aftertaste. Overall quite simple but still enjoyable.

Korcz (2915) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2017
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Świeże, aromatyczne. Dość ciężko chmielone, trochę brak mu lekkości. Sporo żywic. Bardzo smaczne.

lello4ever (923) - ITALY - APR 18, 2017
Ottimo colore biondo, torbida, schiuma un pelo vaporosa e non molto persistente. Aroma intenso di agrumi, floreale ed erbaceo. Molto buona al palato, con un corpo abbastanza pieno e beverina grazie ad un amaro pieno e intenso, con sentori di frutta tropicale e agrumi. Carbonazione medio bassa. Finale amarognolo con per un buon equilibrio di dolce per lalcol. Veramente notevole.

33cl can from Alko. The beer pours slightly hazy golden color with a thick frothy white head. Tropical fruity aroma, perfumy, floral as well. Piny, sweet pineapple, mango in flavor. Round sweet finish with a nice bite. Balanced fruity IPA.
