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.

Theydon_Bois (8668) - 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 (6300) - 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.

Flavor of fruit lots of the hops mostly pine and flowers. Well balance and with a light bitter and flavorful finish Quite good.

bpreo (1612) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 16, 2013
A very strong, robust American Pale Ale (APA, or is it AIPA?). Worth a try, but not too many.

Honey amber hue. Rocky head with excellent lacing. Herbal aroma. Silky texture and a very complex flavor profile. Very well balanced. ~m --RaucusBacchus

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bomber from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. It poured hazed honey gold with a soapy beige head that leaves sticky lacing. An aroma of pine and floral hops. That along with caramel were major themes. Complex fruit, too. The fruit kind of baffled me. It was not really passion fruit and not citrus at all. Caramel matched the hops note for note and might have come out ahead. This was not a typical west coast IPA in that it had so little citrus.

Bottle shared by beerpig317. Poured clear light copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus, floral and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

Very hoppy orange citrusy aroma. Pours orange with a fluffy head. Taste isnt super bitter and a bit sweet. Very enjoyable beer. Bit of a weird finish though

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle and rated on 2-07-2013. This beer has a small white head that was mostly lasting, spotty amounts of lacing, transparent body, very fizzy and lively carbonation, and a yellow-golden hue. The aroma is malty, floral, citrus, grapefruit and mildly earthy. The taste is mildly earthy, lightly bitter malty, caramel, floral, grapefruit, citrus hops, and has a very dry finish. The palate is lightly tingly and this is a medium bodied IPA. All-in-all, this is a quaffable IPA, but not very hoppy for an IPA and what hops there were, they tasted rather weak.
