Meet Cannonballs big brother; we used more malt, more hops and more magical conjuring to crank up the flavour of our explosive IPA Cannonball. Get your taste buds ready for massive pine and candied orange aromas combined with bitter/sweet grapefruit and mango flavours all complemented by a deeply composed, satisfyingly malty base. Ever wondered what it feels like to be shot out of a cannon? Heres what it tastes like

On tap (keykeg) Sheffield Tap 20/07/11. Theres something about a pint of Double IPA at the arse-end of an evening. A statement of no return. A declaration that I now give my tastebuds over to a beer so it can have its wicked way with them and damn the consequences. And its... dense. Not chewy - none of that overtly-crystal sweetness that makes beers like this seem like hard work to drink for me. Just concentrated, slabs of pine and spice, aromas of steeped fruits with the occasional whiff of a well-matured mango chutney. The great thing about ordering a pint was allowing the flavours to uncurl. The keg temperature doesnt help the beer, but flavours that started out as distinct country cousins at the beginning eventually intermarried into something refreshingly incestuous. Or is that just the bollocks I write having downed a pint of it? Ill have to wait til it gets bottled, get the banjo out and try it all over again...

Cask Half Pint at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London in Dec 2011 - Cloudy Orangey Red in colour. Very Fruity; sweet tropical fruits and orange and grapefruit citrus; marmalade; very tangy, very tasty. Very Hoppy; piney resinous hops. Malty backbone: sweet malts, caramel. Good fruit/hops/malt balance. Sweet bitter very fruity hoppy throughout. Hoppy but not extreme. Liked this a lot. Nice DIPA! (2011-12-06)

Pours a hazy orange with a small head. Aroma of pineapple, mango and citrus hops. Flavour is slightly sweet with the same fruits coming through leading to a bitter finish. Great!

Lys brun tkete med mye sedimenter, fingerhyt hvitt skum. Lukter sydhavsfrukter, fersken og noe honning. Fyldig. Kraftig bitterhet, noe sdme fra sydhavsfrukt kommer gjennom. Wow, det var en bitterbombe gitt. Lang.

Rejält fruktig och fin. Gömmer alkoholen bra men har ett trevligt tryck och karaktär. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TEJA (2809) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2016
Draught at Oliver Twist. No head just a tiny lace. Clowdy yellow color. The most intense American hop aroma I have experienced. Clean hop without sulphur . Nice and intense hop taste. Big but good bitterness. Nice balancing body.

Pours into a nice cloud of a deep orange. The aroma hits your nose with a pleasant burst of fruit. The taste has a lovely subtle citrus about it making for a highly refreshing beer.
