COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created with crystal clear spring water that originates in the Okeefenokee Swamp, Big Nose IPA is a mystical elixir for hop lovers. Inhale the aroma and devour the flavor of Big Nose. Big Nose features massive amounts of late flavor and aroma hops, augmented with dry hopping and our unique hop filtering process as we transfer the fermented ale to conditioning tanks for carbonation and aging. A rich malt backbone combines with the intense hop flavors to deliver a balanced finish that will keep you coming back to say BEER ME! Ingredients: American barley malts Centennial and Amarillo Hops Production targets: Original gravity: 17.5 Brix IBUs: 50 Alcohol By Volume: 7.3%

Rated from notes taken on 3 July 2013 -- On tap at the Salty Duck, FWB FL. This is my favorite IPA from Swamp Head, although my experience with this brewery is limited. Well balanced IPA. Nice hops with a solid malt backbone.

Tap at st mikes. Clear copper gold with strong white foamy head that lasts. Floral grassy aroma with solid malt backing. Classic bitterness with grass and floral hops. Sweet malt and dry Hoppy finish. Classic IPA. I’ve had this but this is even better than I remember. Glad I gave it a second shot!

GJF (1258) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 16, 2014
On tap at The Top in G’ville. Clear amber creamy, white head. Decent retention. Carmel and roast in the nose--not a lot of hops. Medium bodied. Clean flavor, light bitterness. Good beer--more like a pale than an IPA.

Homer321 (1962) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Draft. Small white head. Slightly hazy reddish color. Lots of pine in the nose. Taste is initially bitter, slightly pithy. Hops come across as a good mix of pine and citrus. Clean finish. Solid.
