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!

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.

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!!

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Served up a well-hazed, medium amber-hued body with a medium-small, creamyish, off-white head.

Smell: Initially, a sniff of caramel squares, then, inviting citrus hop notes, florals, some stern-looking resins, and, then, another closing hint of caramel.

Taste: Sweetish, malty caramel flavor propped up by toasted grains joined by resinous floral tones and pithy citrus accents hinting at times of lemon, at times of grapefruit. Moderate bitterness. Mild alcohol presence. A bit more caramel prior to the bittersweet, citrus-hinted finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth.

Overall: Good stuff! There are some shades of DFH 90 Minute here, I feel.
