Nice Copper color, aroma smells like cascade. Nice malt and hope balance. Very well done for an English IPA. I can drink this one in the heat and have more than one!!

A great beer that hits my sweet spot. I didn't give it a higher rating for a great beer because it's overall flavor and color are clones of bells two hearted ale although the smell is not nor the mouth feel. Enjoyed from a can in a tulip glass. Cans have been recently changed. I have in the past couple of years enjoyed this on trips to Florida.

Deep. Mello. Not fruit. Ale with hop dash and no rash. Sweet afternotes and nice job all around. Not amazing but I have to hand it to the boys and girls at Big Top, being a Sarasota local me-self. We are on the way to making a place on the map for craft wetness.

Pours out a nice hazy orange copper hue with a long lasting creamy head. The taste and smell are citrusy with just a hint of pine. The citrus hop notes give way to a mild malty finish. Good carbonation level and very smooth mouthfeel. This is overall a very nice IPA that I would drink again.
