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!

First had at The Burnt Hickory Brewery tour, on draft into clear plastic disposable beer cup. Although I am regularly disappointed by DIPAs, this one does not.

Cloudy, brown with a thick, half inch off-white head. A very mild, hop smell that is a little too sweet. The taste is mildly hoppy with strong burnt, earthy tones becoming more prominent at the end. The aftertaste is very slightly spicy. Very smooth, but full body that lingers perfectly. Although light on hops, a very good IPA. An exceptional extra I received as part of a trade.

The reddish amber color was much darker than a typical IPA. The body was hazy, and the head was one finger thick. The aroma much milder than most IPAs (or DIPAs, which this beer was approaching in ABV). The smell was woody, earthy, and spicy, with some malt coming through as well. The taste was even milder than the aroma, as there was very little bitterness. There was a lot of earthy, chalky hop flavors, that reminded me a lot of English old ales. There was some hints of spice in the dry aftertaste. The body of the beer was its best quality, as it was soft, smooth, and soothing. The beer was had place to show a bottled on date, but the date had not been printed, but I do believe I had a fresh sample.
