Big Job is a BIG beer, 7.2% alcohol, dry as a bone and jammed full of Cornish barley and as many Citra and Centennial hops as we could get our hands on.

oh6gdx (24495) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Bottled. Orangeish amber colour with a mediumsized foamy white head. Aroma is citrus, some floral and resiny notes along with some sweet malts to it as well. Flavour is floral, mild fruits, some resin, a bit nutty notes as well as some toffee and mild herbal notes. Mellow finish. Tasty.

allmyvinyl (8809) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2016
Cask at the Haymarket. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aromas of lemon and lime. Taste is sweet, as expected for the style on cask, more lime and pithy bitterness though. Decent and drinkable.

AshtonMcCobb (4907) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2016
On cask at the Haymarket. 7.2% Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - lemon and lime. A bit if hay. Taste - lime marmalade. A bit syrupy. Pithy at the back though. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry tangy finish. I say dry but there are elements of sweetness in there. Overall - it kinda falls in between a double ipa and a barley wine.

Sample at the brewery, st. Austell. Nose is fruity, citric. Flavor is medium bittersweet, finish is quite hoppy, medium lasting bitter. Quite nice one.

Butelka 0,5l Aromat trawiasty, chmiel, trochę słodyczy. Mocno nagazowane, średnia goryczka, cytrusy i kwiaty. Dobre piwo.

CAVEMAREIL (1) - MAREIL SUR MAULDRE, FRANCE - APR 12, 2016 does not count
Bière joliment houblonnée, aromatique sur des notes herbacées et florales, Finale nette avec une amertume prononcée.

Tradpint (13) - Amersham, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Bottle conditioned from Tesco’s and nothing wrong with its carbonation (at least at first: I took my time over it!) Grassy, floral hop aroma, heavy sweetness, very full bodied, a tiny bit sticky but otherwise drinks very easily for its strength. A warming finish. Good value at Tesco’s at the moment. Not a pint to drink with food though. Perhaps instead of food would be better...

berkshirejohn (5738) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
50cl bottle from Tesco’s, Camberley. A bright orange amber pour with a rapidly fading white head; citrus aroma with a touch of resin; syrupy body with an assertive grapefruit bitterness and well hidden alcohol - until you stand up. Much better than I was expecting.
