I felt like having and IPA and went for this one based on that brewers notes on the bottle and that it was an IPA rated at 65 ibus. It looks like it should. Its got that IPA color with some haze but not filtered to the max like some. Really nice white bubbles in the head. Looks tasty. The smell is awesome. Its not intense but there is that hint of the citrus you get from the hops and not bitterness. Really good dry hopping done on this to get the smell like this. However its very subtle bit its there. The flavor is as described. Hoppy but not in the bitter sense. It has a very balanced taste and all of the proper citrus flavors that should be there. Just the type I was hoping to purchase. It has a medium yet sticky mouthfeel due to the acidity from the hops that cleans your palate off waiting for more. Nice beer by a kind of small yet consistant local brewer.

Appearance - transparent gold, white full head, medium lacing

Smell - citrus, flowery hops and sweet malts

Taste - mostly a balanced IPA, slightly hop forward. It the flavor profile of the hops are faint, floral and citrus notes

Mouthfeel - medium body, slightly oily

Overall - good hop flavor, could be a bit more pungent especially based on the brewery description

Bomber poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, Cyclops IPA is dark gold with a white head leaving nice lace.

Smell is citrus hops and caramel, orange marmalade.

Taste is also fairly hoppy, nice citrus, not overly pungent, smooth bitterness. A little iced tea note from the crystal malt.

Mouthfeel is on the oily side, medium bodied.

Drinkability is pretty good, it's a solid IPA, but the orange marmalade is a little one note, I'd like to see more complexity from the hops. Decent though.
