Beer: Magic Rock Brewing - Cannon Ball, IPA by IPAokay

Cannon Ball


India Pale Ale, 7.4%

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Cannon Ball is a 7.4% ABV India Pale Ale (IPA) brewed by Magic Rock Brewing, a craft brewery based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England. The beer is named after the Cannon Ball Express, a steam locomotive that ran between London and Leeds in the 19th century.

Cannon Ball is brewed with a blend of American and British hops, which give it a complex aroma and flavour. The beer is dry-hopped with Citra and Mosaic hops, which add a tropical fruit and citrus flavour to the aroma.

Cannon Ball pours a hazy golden colour with a thick, white head. The aroma is intense and tropical, with notes of mango, pineapple, and passionfruit. The flavour is juicy and hoppy, with a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. The finish is dry and lingering, with a hint of citrus.

Overall, Cannon Ball is a delicious and well-balanced IPA. The aroma and flavour are both intense and tropical, and the finish is dry and lingering. If you’re a fan of IPAs, I highly recommend giving this beer a try.
