COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the hop lover in us all, we present Cyclops IPA. The substantial gravity is met by a cornucopia of 5 hop varieties, which yield striking flavor and aroma, that results in one of the more balanced and aromatic IPA offerings you’ll wrap your hands around.

Bottle. Not a very good IPA IMO. Orangish golden pour. Sweet flavor with lots of tea notes. Mild to medium bitterness, orange citrusy notes. Little resemblance of. West coast IPA. Needs work

Clear light amber color with ivory head. Fruity, yeasty, pale malt, mild vegetal aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Light fruity sweet flavors balanced by some pine hop bitterness---not bad.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Orange-yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is full of biscuit, toffee and heather. The flavor is grass and orange from the hops as well as a low amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

maekchu (1982) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2013
Bomber. Mild citrusy nose. Typical orange/amber color, creamy off-white head. Tangy hop sawdust / rich caramel comes out in mid / finish is creamy and fairly balanced. Medium body. Pleasant, and fairly generic NW stuff. Doesn’t go too far. A sweetish IPA.

Beergeek23322 (2175) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2013
March 2012. 22 oz. bottle. An OK IPA on the softer side with more caramel and malt aromas than most. It’s balanced and drinkable, but if you like hops, there are better choices.

Cyclops is a "decent" IPA. It pours a golden honey color with almost no head. Aroma is grainy. The flavor is very malty but yet refreshing? Interesting. I would definitely have it again but it could easily be passed by. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (7938) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Tap at Cascade Lakes Lodge, Bend, 23/05/13. Clear dark amber with a thin off white head that clears to a film. Nose is hops, orange pith, caramel malt, light pine. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, orange pith, hops, touch of pine, grassy notes. Medium bodied with a little balls, fone carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. Decent enough IPA.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Heavily hazed orangish amber, sediment abounds, moderate frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft sweet citrusy hop nose.   Straight forward, but not grainy or pithy.   Nice smooth bitterness, not too big but enough to get a good citrusy flavor, clean backside, with a nice malt base.   This is really surprising.   Very smooth and tasty.   This one isn’t a bruiser, but instead its very well balanced.   Does somewhat come across as a really malty Pale Ale, but has enough IPA flavor to hold out.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, juicy, and hoppy without being overly bitter.   I had mixed expectations on this one, but wow was it good.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. It poured a cloudy gold with a beige head and lots of lacing rings. Nose of hops - floral, pine, and some light citrus. Medium in body with a clean mouthfeel. Flavor of fruit lots of the hops mostly pine and flowers. Well balance and with a light bitter and flavorful finish Quite good.
