COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Big Eye IPA is a big hoppy brew, thanks to the abundance of American Columbus and Centennial varieties we use to flavor and dry hop. While the English originally added extra hops to preserve their beers for sea travel, we do it for the love of all that bold, intense flavor that makes India Pale Ale one of our favorite styles.

Heavy hop aroma: treated wood and tangerine. Itís very spicy and prickly. Rye malts. The appearance is triaminic orange with tons of sediment. The flavor is minor wood at first, then a terrific tangerine, blood orange hop. Symphony of these two disparate flavors. The palate is buttery, oily; very smooth, and leaves a remainder. Itís a full-fledged West Coast IPA. Very good, sweet and substantial.

22 oz poured into a tulip glass. The beer is aromatic with bitter hops....floral and citrus. The appearance is a light amber with a respectable light tan head and nice lacing. This beer is medium body with average carbonation and a long bitter finish. Taste is roasted malts with toffee and caramel flavors...then straight up hops....with bitter lingering finish. The beer is much maltier than other West Coast IPAs, and I kinda like it for a change of pace. A great beer all around, especially for the money $3.99 at Bevmo.

Bottle pours orange gold with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, pine, citrus, and a slight floral hint. Flavor shows basically the same with an additional hint of stonefruit (peach). Overall body is moderate and sticky with moderate bitterness.

MattShizzle (599) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle. Darker amber color typical of IPAís - though slightly cloudy. Fairly hoppy aroma. Quite hoppy - hops are well balanced with malt.

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Pours an ambeer yellow color with a small white head and good lacing. Aromas are pure floral hops. The taste is pretty one dimensional but who cares?! Itís all hops, bitter and refreshing. Thereís a decent malt backbone but itís overshadowed by the citrus bitter hops. Excellent IPA.

Aroma of very fresh hops. Cascade, nugget. Bitter bite, all hops. One dimensional but good.
