Today we are drinking the Natty Greene’s Brewing Company’s Cannonball Double IPA. Natty Greene’s is a brewery and operates 2 brew pubs in Greensboro and Raleigh. This special brew is released only once or twice each year – watch for it! “Adventurous, expansive, and bold, Cannonball is our take on what a hoppy beer ought to be.” says Natty’s. Of the Canonball DIPA Natty’s says “The malt structure is crafted to create a surface, a plane, for our eight specially selected American hops to rise up from. To ramp up the ABV without increasing the body or other malty characteristics, we add some sugar to the mix, giving the yeast a little something extra to digest without adding any flavor but the alcohol.” In the finished brew, those eight American hops explode out of that super-simple malt structure to open up a full fan of flavors and aromas. It’s a deep and complex flavor experience that gives you multiple layers of enjoyment.”
