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.

fresh bottle. faint sweetish celery seed nose; green and raw. hop flavor much more forward, with the same sweet celery salad character, also touches of lime, candy sugar and vegetables. high bitterness and hip hop acid, oily late and a tad watery. bold and forward but the hop flavor is close to offensive for me (a strange combination of sweet green onion, lime flavoring and candied celery).

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Bomber from 16 Tons. Light orange colored pour with a small white head and zero lacing. Pleasant aroma of citrus, light booze and caramel malt, but sadly this doesn’t come through as well in the flavor which is a little muddled and a little boozier than would be expected from the abv. Pine more dominant than citrus in the flavor as well. Okay beer, but nothing to write home about.

Bomber. Big malt sweetness. Light bitterness throughout. Mellow but still has good flavor. Bland finish that makes the brew slightly off balance.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2012 Bomber, floral, grass, citrus, nice balanced ipa, not super hoppy but just enough to put a smile on your face if you like ipa’s. I could drink several of these in a row and feel good about it. The guys at Cascade Lakes have got my attention after sampling a couple of their different brews now. Look out Deschutes.........

Bottle: Cloudy gold with a small white ring head. Citrusy aroma of light hops and flavors with perfume and lemon grass. Kind of a sweet aftertaste. I guess if you name your beer "Cyclops" and it has a gnarly dude on the front with one eye and two hook teeth coming out over his lips, it should probably kick your butt. This doesn’t do that, but it does go for the balanced flavor they were aiming for by using 5 hop varieties. It’s not bad, I just thought it was going to be way more "in your face."

bhensonb (11090) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bomber from Brewforia. Pours hazy amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of earthy/floral hop over mild caramel. Med body. Flavor is floral with some herbal aspects. A little earthy. Then it grabs with an herby astringency. Very interesting and different. A bit challenging, but very drinkable.

Amber in color, clear, with a thin head. Hops and malt aroma flora and light fruitiness. Had good amount of hops made this a drinkable IPA. This was mild with dryness in the finish and with a floral grapefruit mouth.
