Once a year we receive the latest crop of hops from the US, intensely aromatic and bursting with potential they’re begging to be put to work. With three times the quantity of hops of our explosive IPA ‘Cannonball’ and even more than our flagship Double IPA ‘Human Cannonball’ we’ve created a fitting tribute to the new hop release with this our annual homage to the hop. ‘Un-Human Cannonball ‘takes IPA to another dimension balancing massive citric aroma, deep tropical fruit flavor and gravity defying drinkability to deliver a hop experience that is out of this world.
We received the last of the necessary hops from the 2012 harvest recently and decided it was now or never. Un-Human Cannonball is a 12% Triple India Pale Ale, with a very pale and simple Golden Promise malt body designed to let the hops shine.
We used a mountain of Centennial, Citra & Columbus whole hops in the hop back and then the most dry hopping we’ve ever attempted, with 4 monster additions of Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe, Citra and Chinook in cold conditioning.
Obviously this isn’t an IPA to session, its an IPA to savour, an IPA to share with friends, an IPA designed to indulge and satisfy your cravings for Lupulin. As with all hoppy beers and more so with this much hopping, Un-Human needs drinking as soon as possible in order to taste the hops at their freshest and most pungent and experience the balance they give to the beer Show Less
