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.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle from CoOp Bellingham
Hazy orange amber color with creamy head. And easy IPA with good bitterness level but showing some age, the hop having lost some fresh power. It’s soft and it almost had some vanilla character.
Pleasant but easy.

bhensonb (10792) - 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.

Tmoney99 (10459) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2013
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.

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.

3fourths (7884) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2011
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).

DuffMan (6542) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle, shared at RBAG Summer Session 2012. Hazy amber orange with a spare off-white head. No lace. Aroma is quite resinous, leaning toward harsh. Caramel malts sit behind slightly medicinal hops, with an astringently bitter finish. Just okay.

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.
