Fucken can @ home, courtesy of DrewFace. Cheers Flo Rida bro! Pours a hazy dark reddish orange appearance with a big butterscotch, nutty, burnt malty, strong aroma. Flavor is a touch better with at least a touch of citrus but still full of butter and pancakes. Bitter, bland hops. Yikes.

Enjoyed with PorterPounder watching the Georgia/SC game on a nice evening, following the Proof Florida Tap Invitational. An average AIPA - nothing objectionable, nothing spectacular. Lots of hops, lots of flavor. Sorry, if you were looking for an epistle on this rating, then you’re going to be disappointed because I left my notebook in the car for this one. OK. Tap, Beef O’Brady’s, midtown.

Swamp Head Big Nose IPA is a well-balanced and enjoyable specimen of the style. Aroma is floral and hoppy. Pour is a hazy amber with a nice frothy head. Floral flavors come out in the taste without a lot of bitterness in the end. Big Nose is an enjoyable and well-done IPA.

Nice gentle citrus aroma with a good flavor. Gives a good bitter bite at the end. Nicely balanced good beer. Had at Harry’s in Tallahassee.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Translucent deep amber color, extremely frothy off-white head. Pine, floral, caramel, hints of dates, and overcooked vegetables. Surprisingly light sweetness followed by equally light bitterness in the back. Smooth, almost medium-bodied, and a very brief finish. Little booziness.

The Big Nose has a medium body in a dark amber pour. There is a spiciness to the hop flavor, which is full but not overbearing. Very drinkable for an IPA.

Draft at Avenue wine. Pours light orange with a half inch of white foam. Slight floral note on the nose. Bigger hop presence than I thought it would be but it’s not exactly a hop forward beer. finishes. Lean. Solid but boring for style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Dahlia’s Pour House. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, wood, toast, hay and a touch of flavour. The taste is bitter pine, earth, floral, light toast, light caramel, resin and nectarine with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, well-balanced and rather drinkable.

Prob the best Florida ipa I’ve ever had. Now that might not be saying much, but seriously, it’s a pretty good brew with a mellow aftertaste. So, try one, but maybe not a 6 pack.
