Big on hops and big on flavour, the Cannonball IPA is one of Magic Rock Brewing's flagship beers and has certainly put Huddersfield on the beery map.
New-world hops impart big notes of pine, citrus fruits and perhaps even grass whilst its big bitterness cuts through the sweet flavours like a hot knife.
Medium-bodied with a long dry finish this IPA lingers on your tongue for about a week. Certainly you could nurse one of these on an evening (and at 7.4%, you may want to take it slowly!) or make your whole night a Cannonball night. Either way, it'll be a tasty one.
"Cannonball is an India Pale Ale in the true tradition, high in alcohol and massively hopped to survive a long sea voyage. We’d 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 will blow you out of the water . . ."
