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.

Bottle from Eltham Wines, Eltham. Light hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of tangerine, light sourness and light malt. Sweet citrus and mango flavours. Good bitter-fruit finish. Quite nice.

King_Alex_II (305) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Boring pale yellow beer. The smell is shy and like dishwashing detergent. The taste is sweet in the body and instead of hoppy bitterness a sour grapy taste kicks in. The aftertaste is grapy and a bit wrong. Not really a bad beer but definitely not what you expect, when you read double IPA on the lable.

SinH4 (564) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Orange color with small white head. Hops, yes, sweet, citrus, grapes. Taste is very sweet and has a heavy grape sweetness towards the end. Quite off balance. Meh.

C ’est le genre de bière que je n’apprécie pas du tout .. C’est pas bien balancé, c’est traîîîînant, sans grand équilibre. Le côté citronné me rapelle plus la corvée de la vaiselle à la main qu’un dimanche de mai à Menton ... Bref pas pour moi !

1.2.2014. Tuoksussa voimakas humalan greippisyys ja havuisuus. Maku seuraa hieman tuoksua, hieman havua ja greippiä mutta hieman häiritsevästi ja pistävästi katkero tuntuu. Myös alkoholi tulee läpi.

Well try as I might I just can’t fall in love with European IPA’s. This one has a strange balance that doesn’t quite work for me. Head disappears within seconds. Colour a nice amber gold. Aroma sweet and fruity. The hops is there but nothing like a NW Coast hops and the palate is sweet, fruity, and almost soapy. Very little carbonation - almost flat. Not one of my favourite.

Gbgbrouge (273) - SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2015
From tap, amber with low head. Aroma with notes of bread, caramel, citrus and pine. Taste is bitter but not very bitter. There is a strange sour note of lime? that doesn’t blend and is very disturbing.

craighill (30) - GERMANY - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle from Kaufhof, Mannheim. Golden organge colour, almost clear, with very thin coarse head. Smells fruity - oranges and mangoes. Taste is dry, but is rather thin. Unexpectedly weak bitterness. Dominant taste matches the fruity aroma. Not quite balanced, but drinkable enough.

bax (1228) - Hasselager, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2015
(bottle 09/02-2015) low white head, unclear yellow color, hoppy aroma and taste, some bitterness. BB date 14 Jul 2015.

SilverfoX (546) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
strong vinegary, apricoty aroma from a golden body, no head, nice and smooth no hint of its strength, its ok but no real flavour considering it says MASSIVELY hopped/
