500ml can served in a tulip. 05/08/17 printed on the based of the can. Pours an apricot hue with a hazy clarity and a loose, quarter inch, off-white head that quickly dissipates towards the edges leaving a soapy froth across the center. Nose expresses candied citrus as fellas an earthy/resinous character. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of some ethanol that comes out at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with an even carbonation and a mild acidity. Overall, my favorite cannonball beer. Top notch!

From Zombier. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 6x21. Too much alcohol in mouth here for my liking. I prefer the human cannonball much more. 3 months before bb date. Repeat fresher.

On tap at CBC 2016 - day 2. Grapefruit, tropical fruit, flowery hops and honey. Nice mouthfeel, very easy to drink.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, red session. Really dank and juicy aroma with ripe melon and mushy peach notes. Taste is sweet at first with dank notes like chives and onion. Some green hop bitterness on the finish.

Imported from RateBeer:

"Definitely my favorite Magic Rock Brewing beer thus far - reminds me of a perfect mix between an IPA and a barley wine. Very fruity, almost syrupy, although it doesn't taste as though it is 11 - 12%. "

There's not much that I dislike about this beer. Perhaps the only downside is that it is dangerously drinkable!

Sampled from a 660ml bottle while in London. Date is best by Sep 2013.

A - Golden with a slight haze and a small white head. Some lacing.

S - Wow! So much tropical fruit and citrus! It must have taken a boatload of American hops to make this brew.

T - Rich hop oils, moderate tropical fruit hop flavors and a firm yet balanced kick of alcohol. But the 12% is well hidden. I tend to like smaller IPAs but this one has my attention. This is a big, complex beer yet everything comes together and works as a whole. If anything, it could use a bit more bitterness to help with the finish. But I like this one a lot.

M - Creamy and smooth with a nice low carbonation. The perfect delivery for the flavors.

O - As a terminal hop head, I'm tough on IPAs but this is a great beer that would sell well in CA or any other part of the US.
