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!

Sampled on trap at Brickstore ATL. Pours a beautiful clear burnt orange with a finger of head. Piney slightly orangey nose. Taste highlights the hops with a bit of citrus to balance things out a bit. Finish is quite bitter. All in all a very good IPA highlighting the hop profile.

Surprised at how highly this beer is rated. A big departure from all the rave IPAs of the day. This is in the more traditional east coast style- and done very well- just not in the class of sculpin, jai alai, etc.

Look: Clear honey. Big white swath of a head with messy lacing.
smell: Grapefruit and piney notes. Some floral. Big nose.
Taste: mostly dry, with a bit of sweetness that is wiped out in a bitter, pithy finish. Some of the same floral notes as the nose but not as rich.
overall: Another nice IPA. Not top tier imo but nice.

Probably overscoring this but its just too far ahead of anything available in the ATL area. Got a bottle dated just a few days ago and damn it tastes fresh. Have not had anything this fresh from a bomber around these parts before. As the label says the taste is nice and hoppy with citrus and mellow pine. Damn bitter. Good malt backbone but the malt is not as present as most IPAs you find around Maltlanta. Price is a bit steep for regular consumption (assuming i could even find more of these) but a nice treat for hopheads looking for a local hop bomb that actually delivers.

Aroma is seriously hoppy - boing boing boing! Pours a nice, somewhat hazy amber with a thick off-white head. Flavor has strong hoppy note with hints of honey and fruit. Texture is firm and smooth with lots of fizz and liveliness. If you like hoppy beers, look for this one next time you are in the Atlanta area.
