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.

guzgorog (271) - FRANCE - SEP 27, 2014
Blonde dorée, peu de mousse blanche qui s’efface très vite, bulles vivantes très longtemps. Nez fruité : citron, fruits exotiques et résineux. Bouche surtout les agrumes : pamplemousse, citron , léger côté pin encore. Belle carbonation, manque de corps pour une double IPA. Pas très subtile, c’est indiqué sur la bouteille, mais le houblon qu’est-ce que c’est bon !

Moravius (501) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Goldgelb, klar, bescheidene Schaumbildung. - In der Nase intensive Pampelmuse, Zitrone, Ananas, Kiefer und malzige Honigsüße. - Im Antrunk wuchtige Pampelmuse, bittere Aprikose, harziger Hopfen. Wuchtige aber noch angenehme Bittere. Im Hintergrund milde Honigsüße. Mild rezent; schwer, beinahe dick im Mund. Auch im Abgang schwere zitrusfruchtige Bittere. Heftig bitterer aber etwas schaler Nachtrunk. - Ein wuchtiges, etwas eindimensional gehopftes IPA mit zu dick geratenem Körper, der dem Ganzen eine beklemmende Schwere gibt. Etwas weniger Körper würde besser mit den Hopfenaromen harmonieren. Man muß nicht alles übertreiben ...

Bottle. It pours an almost clear golden body under a small, white head. It’s lightly malty on the nose, with lots of apricots and pine cones. Some orange zest. There’s a light and pleasant bitterness in the flavor, with orange zest and peaches. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Lasting bitter and fruity finish. Quite nice this one. Well worth a revisit. 140919

Om det är sant att vi dricker för att glömma är det för att öl som St. Austell Big Job inte bidrar med något i minnesbanken. Det är en tillgång så länge det berusar, och det är därför man tar ännu en till för att glömma den här fadda historien, tills minnet återvänder och man måste fylla på glömskan, i en allt uppslukande kretsgång - ett livets Ouroboros.

Sampled @ GBBF day 2. Clear golden color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, very hoppy, loads of fresh tropical fruits, nicely bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Well, pretty damn good this one!

ejr (180) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
Klar dyp gyllen farge med et hvit skum som raskt ble borte. Aroma av malt, tropisk frukt sitrus og karamell. Smaken følger aroma med en grei bitterhet i avsluttningen.

Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to heavy malty and sweetish aroma, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some citrus - light grapefruit hoppyness. Moderate to heavy malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, some citrus - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, faint caramel and light fruitiness, citrus - some piney hoppyness, light - some alcohol. Nicely hopped English DIPA. Not too sweet - not too much caramel. Bit too much alcohol in the finish considering the body.
