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!

Clear yellow orange color with thin white lacing. Nice citrus aroma and body with a lingering bitter finish. Not too heavy on the palate. Well balanced.

3.5
GJF (1520) - 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 (5072) - Melboring, 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.

smaynard6000 (1167) - Apopka, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2013
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.

cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2013
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 (5335) - 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.

4.3
sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2013
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.
