COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you have fallen for the IPA style like we have, Big Eye will be a welcome addition to your repertoire. You’ll revel in Big Eye’s bitter, hoppy flavor thanks to the American Columbus and Centennial hops that are used to flavor and dry hop our flagship IPA. We thank our hops every day that the English loved their bitters—or else the IPA style may not have been born to help the beer survive the journey from Cape Hope to India back in the 18th century.

Great IPA that’s all citrus. Stood up nicely to a much hoppier beer I was drinking right next to it. A very simple IPA but one that’s clean and pungent and full of great hoppy bitterness.

great example of a simple single hopped ipa with a great result! not complicated, not strong, just really showcases the hops and the brewmasters skill. excellent! perfect session beer for geeks, and actually attainable(unlike the sculpin)!

Hoppy and everlasting on the palate. A good looking amber with a head that doesn’t disperse for a while. Good but not very strong at 6% AC.

drowland (6661) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Nice hop flavor, but not quite bitter enough and the hop profile doesn’t linger enough for my tastes.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Nice surprise on this one. Huge grapefruit and orange flavor with some pine hops. Lightly bitter, with lots of caramel malts to balance. Nicely dry finish that lingered for a while. Not the most bitter IPA out there. Medium bodied and medium carboantion. Very drinkable. Strong aroma similar to the flavor.

Bottle at GBBF 2009. Copper coloured pour with decent white head. Hoppy aroma. Lingering bitterness, citrus fruit, hoppy, dry, refreshing.

Nice to see a bomber for $3.99, oh well, so it is not Sculpin, I’ll live (by the way, why is that so rare, just replace this stuff with that). Pours with a large off-white head over a golden hay body. Aroma is strong with citrus, orange blossom, lightly herbal hops, tea notes, caramel, toffee and melon. Taste is aggressively spicy and herbal hops, with a tea like aspect, a bit of rotten melon, and some toffee. Medium carbonation and a dry finish.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2009 On tap at the Rose and Crown in Palo Alto. Pours a nice orange copper, not much aroma. Tastes like a good IPA, I have no real complaints.
