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.

Serving type: on-tap

Got it at local growler store. WOW. Heard a ton of hype about this beer. It's all true. Amazing IPA! Borders on DIPA status. A ton of hops and malt backbone.
a Red tawny color with a huge hops aroma smell that really hits you as it warm!

Great new brewery in my state!!

With hop tastes of simcoe centenial columbus and chinook, this IPA is danky resinous with a beautiful bouquet. Nice malt backbone and an abv that almost makes this a DIPA. I love this beer, probably one of the best IPAs I've ever had. Joined BA just to review this beer because it was so good.
