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.

Aromat to kwiaty, lipa i miód. Ładnie, przyjemnie, zachęcająco. W smaku wytrawne z przyjemną goryczką na średnim poziomie. Lekkie jak na swoje parametry. Alkohol dosyć dobrze ukryty chociaż moc wyraźnie czuje się w głowie. Niezłe piwo.

Cornish double ipa de 7,2 % abv, avec malts des Cornouailles en Maris Otter, pils et malt de froment. Houblonnage principal en citra et centennial, et accessoire en nugget et cascade. Format 50 cl (merci), et étiquetage soigné avec échelle de valeur gustative, niveau bitter de 5 sur 5, et sweet de 2 sur 5. Mon exemplaire était exactement à date. Couleur orangé à reflets dorés, et clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes droites vives. Mousse blanc cassé, en nappage fin, stable à 1 mm. Arômes de mandarine, fruits confits, fruit de passion, lichee, avec une touche de massepain, amandes. 1ère bouche structurée dont l’entame propose une amertume fruitée, assez incisive. Arrière-bouche plus agrumique et mieux implantée. 2ème très belle bouche, tout à fait équilibrée malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume aux développements intenses. 3ème à la grande évolution avec fruits, houblon, amertume importante. Arrière-bouche longue, complexe, avec une fine pointe d’épices. Longueur à la très belle amertume, plus soft mais précise et engagée. Jambes fines, longues. Levure douce, un rien boisée, belle ligne. Alcool très bien, il ne noie pas le sujet mais le soutient progressivement. Finale très fine et un peu vineuse. Superbe. CONCLUSION : grand job, indiscutable, avec finesse et force, amertume et douceur, fruité et harmonie. Big cornish ...

ManVsBeer (8496) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle from Purely Cornish, Looe. Clear deeper golden with a very thin head and a carbonation. It is heavily hopped as it says on the bottle, and despite its noticeable strength, the aforementioned remains its dominant characteristic, and there’s a decent enough fruitiness to the ale too in both its aroma and taste.

Bottle at KØ16. Mild fruity aroma. Clear golden colour. Good caramelly flavour, mildly salty. Fruity and pleasant. Medium bitterness.

Aroma: weak citrus notes, pine, resin, flowers. Appearance: clear golden color and white head. Taste: medium pine bitterness, citrus notes, resin, flowers, malty backbone, semi-dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Astonishingly good stuff, nice DIPA.

Nice! Interesting flavours mixed. Leaves you wondering what you are tasting: citrus, other fruits, herbs, ... The bottle says it is not subtle, but I tend to disagree. Leaves a sweetful aftertaste and a warm feeling.

Pilsig helder geel, verwachte ik niet van een double ipa. Dikke bellen schuim die snel verdwijnen. Ruikt inderdaad lekker hoppig, smaakt aardig hoppig. Wel wat veel carbo en zoeter dan de bedoeling is.

From bottle. Medium malty, and big fruity flavour comes first but quickly disappears. Medium hope finish. The pint format bottle could be funny but doesn’t really deserves the beer.

pitch992 (110) - SLOVENIA - JUN 2, 2016
Aroma: medium levels of hop flavour- citruses, elderberry, some grassiness, some gentle caramel notes. Pale, clean, white soapy head with ok retention. Taste: similar to aroma but with more malty presence that is still gentle caramel. Low sweetness for this style, feels a bit astringent, oxidized, medium bitterness. Palate: light- medium body, oily feelsoft carbonation, long finish, bitter, slightly astringent. Overall: interesting but a bit too easygoing and simple for the style.
