Strong-style India Pale Ale, deep copper in color witha a big, malty, hoppy palate and dry hopped with Centennial & Antanum for a spicy, citrus aroma. What better name for a big, strong beer than one of the biggest, strongest weapons of the Revolutionary War - the cannonball.

lots more pine in the aroma, rich dark caramel malt flavor with lots of citrus and pine, sweetness well balanced with a low bitterness that builds towards the finish, not as sticky sweet as before allowing the malt more room to assert itself

Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy copper orange with ivory head. The aroma is full of fruity hops- candied pineapple, grapefruit, apricot- and also some very sweet malty notes. The flavor is sweet brown sugar and very light toast, with some fruity and floral hops. The finish is only slightly dry, but very floral and herbal. Lots of hop flavor without being all that bitter. A bit of alcohol comes out as it warms. Dense mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Great beer. Extreme at both ends of malt and hops, but balanced beautifully.

Suttree (6504) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2007
Orange, and rather syrupy looking, too. No head. Very heavy aroma of hops and alcohol. Thick and malty, with a surprisingly big caramel and brown sugar flavor, considering how hoppy it smells. Plenty of big citrusy hops, too, though. nice blending of sweet and bitter thoughout, and rather dryish finish. At 2007 Hickory Hops.

Growler courtesy of kp sampled on 1/4/07: Pours a hazy copper orange with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of sweet, candy-like caramel malt has a citrusy hoppy presence. Body starts sweet and pale malty with nice fresh green piny and citric hoppy balance. A nice, fresh IPA.

DrBayern (1140) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2007
On draft at the brewpub . Nice looking light gold with a moderate white head. Hoppy pine and citrus aroma over a light brown sugar background. Medium body and carbonation, pretty clean on the palate. Bitterness takes center stage, although there is a pretty substantial caramel malty background that prevents thing from getting out of hand. A very nice double IPA.

Light orange color with a white head. Aroma if malty with some hop background. Flavor is malt with some nice bitter hops to finish.

This is a nice brew. Pours out a deep orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is very hoppy and citrusy. Flavor was nice, but not nearly as bitter as i had hoped for. Over all not a bad brew at all. Something I will have again. Also after 6 pints of this stuff, youll be drunk. I certainly was.
