Notes/Commercial Description:
The soldiers that dragged the 100 cannons up the side of Little Kennessaw Mountain knew something about fortitude. This ale would not let them down. A piney/citrusy/ danky IPA, Cannon Dragger is aggressively dosed with “C” hops all threw itʼs journey from the grain to the glass. Itʼs pays off, Itʼs a feat of amazing beer strength!

12oz pour at Wild Wing Cafe (Marietta, GA) 3.95. Served in a boring 12oz cylinder glass.

Pours deep red orange with a soft clingy half finger of pale head. Sheets of lacing throughout.

Smells of robust citrus and pine with some sweet malts in the background.

Taste delivers on those big citrusy hops. Grapefruit, orange zest, pine resin and slight mango with sweet biscuit and peppery in the finish. The booze is well integrated, being noticeable but never distracting.

Oily slick medium full feel with average carbonation. Long bitter pepper grapefruit aftertaste.

Another outstanding brew from Burnt Hickory. With an IPA this robust I'm really looking forward to trying their imperial IPA. Highly recommended.

On tap at the open house on 2/16.

Appearance: Pours a golden orange color with a finger of a white head.

Smell: Smells of fresh hops, grapefruit, pine and some grass.

Taste - Taste is very good and very fresh. Mirrors the nose with a sweet bready backbone. Not very bitter at all.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel. You don't taste the 8% at all.

Overall: Overall very good IPA.

I'm not a fan of IPAs. I pretty much avoid them, but I really enjoy this brew. Smells like orange zest and pine mulch. Somewhat citrusy flavor and has a mild, slightly bitter hop that is very drinkable for someone who generally dislikes IPAs as a rule. I would drink this one all year, but seems especially suited for summer drinking given the tart nose and dry flavor.
