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.

deadheadbill (14) - Crystal River, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2011
Pours an golden color with amber tint, nice strong white head with good lacing. Aromas of citrus and hops followed by the same flavors. This beer has a great balance to it with the malt playing off the hops very nicely. Medium bodied with a nice lingering finish. It is 7.3 abv, but very drinkable. A very good offering from Swamp Head.

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Draft @ FBGBF ’010. Pours deep gold with some haze and thin off white head. The modest aroma is peppered with pine and somewhat grassy hops with some citrus hops around the edges. The aroma is on the mild side but very inviting nonetheless. The taste is nice and forward and full of pine and citrus hops with a thin layer of malty sweetness there for support. The taste remains solid pine and resin and citrus along the edges well into the finish.

Draft at Ravenous Pig. Very nice. Bright amber color and served with a thin head. Sweet and citrusy with piney hops and light malt. Spicy bitterness compliments the tropical fruity sweetness nicely. This is quite good.

markwise (4424) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2010
On draft at OTH. Pours orange amber with an off-white head. Nose has got a nice maltiness to it and a caramel presence with strong citrus hop flavors like apricot, grapefruit, and the like. Flavor is very similar with caramel and malt coming to the fore and the hop presence emerging later. Lingering malt and bitter in the finish of this medium-bodied Florida IPA.
