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!

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.

growler from the brewery. Pours a golden color with minimal white head. Big hoppy aroma, mostly pine with some citrus. Nice bitter flavor that one expects from a good IPA. Lingering bitter finish. Not anything out of the ordinary as far as IPAs go, but well executed.

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.

Aurelius (4597) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2013
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.

Ataraxia (410) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2013
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.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2013
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.

DiarmaidBHK (3682) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2013
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.

Very nice ipa. Clear amber orange. Aroma is smooth citrus. Taste is citrus and citrus rind.
