Cannonball is Magic Rock’s flagship India Pale Ale. Boasting very bold flavours, new world hops give big notes of pine, citrus fruits and even grass that are balanced by a sweet malty backbone. On the palate it is medium-bodied before a long and dry finish completes this iconic experience.

INDIA PALE ALE (IPA) - At the height of its empire, Britain’s outposts demanded beer, but India itself was too warm for brewing. India Pale Ale was created in response, a beer that could survive the arduous journey to India. Since then, IPA has been used to describe a well-hopped, high-gravity beer. Over the decades that followed many versions were created and the style adopted by craft brewers everywhere. Today, the use of high quantities of American hops has become ever more popular, resulting in beers that offer distinct floral aromas on top of a hop explosion.
MAGIC ROCK BREW CO - Inspired by their love of great beer and the burgeoning U.S craft beer scene, brothers Richard and Jonny Burhouse, aided by head brewer Stuart Ross, began brewing in 2011. Driven by a desire to produce exciting, characterful beers, Magic Rock has achieved incredible success - named ’2nd best new brewery in the world 2012’ on the independent ratings site Rate Beer. In 2015 the brewery moved to a new site in Birkby, Huddersfield.
