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…

Rune (12947) - Tromsø, - OCT 2, 2012
Full pint, keg at Baran Café. Cloudy amber body, steady, small white head. Minimal glass-lacing. Modest aroma of fresh and ripe fruits. Fruit hoppy taste supported by a good bite of caramel malts. Dry bitter ending. Medium bodied. Oily palate. Paired well with pepperoni pizza. Nice (Bergen, 18.09.2012).

33cl can at The Star and Anchor.edim carbonated, pours a little bit hazy, with especially citrusy aroma, more than tropical. Of course hoppy, but somehow its bitterness didn’t feel in armony with the rest of the beer

@Basunen 17-7-29: ganska snäll och enkel ipa med små toner av humle och gräs. Helt ok.

Can. But I’ll with weak hop profile (some citrus and signs of oxidation), bit alcoholic too.

Super decent, fairly hazy/fruity IPA, aromatic, not way bitter. Good mouthfeel.

Frisch vom Hahn im Muted Horn. Fast klares Gold mit weißer Schaumdecke im Glas. Fast strenge Aromen überreifer Tropenfrüchte. Die Bitterkeit, die man erwartet ist relativ schnell weg.

(330 ml can) Pours a cloudy orange beer, with specks of yeast in the class, vigorous fine carbonation, and a dense white head. A pleasant and punchy aroma of fruit: orange, lemon peel, grapefruit, mango, apricot kernel, apricot pulp, physalis, and an underlying funk. This is accompanied by a subtle caramel malt, that keeps the beer balanced, but lets the hop aromas shine. There’s a little alcohol on the nose, but it’s pleasantly warming. The effervescence pushes the beer around in the mouth, coating the palate. This is a superbly fruity IPA - balanced, and yet brashly bitter. Went down a treat with The Broadway, at Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham.

MarcoBasile (445) - DENMARK - JUL 2, 2017
[330ml can] Pours slightly cloudy golden orange color with an off-white frothy head that settles quick. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus and pine/resin. Taste is citrusy and resinous. I think that resinous and piney flavors tend to be overpowering most of the time, but this is balanced quite well! Hop oil texture, medium carbonation, medium body.
