Out of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, Magic Rock Brewing have served up a traditional IPA, high in alcohol at 7.4%ABV. The ‘Cannonball’ pours a hazy gold into the glass with a thin white head. A dominant fruity aroma hits the nose with grapefruit, mandarin and a hint of orange. This carries through in the mouth in addition to a sweetness in the form of pineapple and mango. A subtle malt character lurks on the palate.
All in all, this is a solid Indian Pale, heavily hopped, bursting with flavour and smooth on the finish. Highly recommend.
