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

Quite hoppy. So many different fruits--both citrus and tropical--and yet this beer is far from one-dimensional and has some great malt character. Mmm.

Can. Characterful dried apple aroma with a fair bit of banana. Fairly hazy golden yellow with a fine bubbled almost white head. Although it has poured extremely hazy, the colour compliments this making it a gradient in the glass from yellow at the top to deeper golden at the bottom. The banana aroma becomes more pominent and ripe after some time. Damn, the liquid is silky soft on the lips and tongue and introduces a morphing bitterness which starts rounded, accompanied by bright yellow fruit such as starfruit and becomes more prickly bringing a slightly more citrusy nature with it. There is a unique floral and spruce flavour running through always which is delicious and while the alcohol burn is apparent it is well balanced by the softness of the drink. This is almost as good as realistically possible.

Very hard to find in my town, but I know why ;-)

Pours a orange golden colour. Big grapefruit, peach orange peel nose. Perfect balance of malt into hop bitterness with a bit of pine resin and tropical fruit. One of the best IPAs Iv ever had, the best from Magic Rock !! Insanely good. Need more !

Incredible, Piny, dry, awesome IPA. Not on the fruity side, but instead a powerful hit in the face. One of the best european IPAs Ive tasted and on par with very good American ones. Absolut starkes nadelbaum-lastiges IPA. Empfehlung fr jeden, dem zitrus noten zu wenig sind. Super trockenes finish. Eines der besten europischen IPAs.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Drinking at the Pivni and York. 5.40 a punt. But perfect. Smells, tastes and looks like an ipa should. Strong in alocohol but pretty smooth to drink

Una delle mie ipa preferite. Eccezionale anche in lattina. Lamaro persistente che lascia nel finale rende instancabile la bevuta.

What a wonderfull ipa, Plenty of tropical aroma, some mango, a ans, piney and grassy bitterness, some zest citrus presence, and a lot of aroma. Lots going on this, very wonderfull flavour, sweet malty biscuity start, a lot of mango and ananas, sweet melon, but citrus bitterness clean the palate and a lot of fresh Grass complete the flavour. Sticky, creamy and full bodied, this ipa is umbelievable.
