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.

Inbreak (2003) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
18.07.2014, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Small bubbly shortlasting head. Aroma is kind of yeasty, not at all what I expected, mild brett, overripe mountain berries, heather, citrus peel, mold, flowers, weeds, hay, leafs, fresh hops, old cellar. Taste is dry and fresh, mild brett, hay, citrus peel, mold, heather, overipe mountain berries, flowers, old cellar, leafs, fresh hops, weeds. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. I don’t really see this one as an DIPA, but for what it is, it’s actually nice and fresh...

Absolutely pleasant aroma, pours golden with almost no head. Taste is pleasant, expected more bitterness, tastes little hoppy with a pleasant aftertaste. A very nice beer.

Good points: refreshing fruit salad aroma - I got apple, kiwi, grapefruit, citrus. Pine also in the nose and taste. Punchy flavour with a strong bitter finish. Golden orange colour. Weak points: watery body. Where’s the head?
