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.

Poured a 12oz bottle into an oversized wine glass.

APPEARANCE: Fairly clear, bright orange color bordering on blood red. Two-finger, eggshell, frothy head. Good retention and lacing.

AROMA: Typical citrus west coast scent, but not quite as potent. Grapefruit and strawberry are noticeable and a "dry flower" note like potpourri.

TASTE: Very robust IPA with strong hop flavor. It’s very bitter across the tongue while it’s in the mouth. Finishes with fruit cocktail of grapefruit, strawberry and slight pineapple sweetness. There’s only a touch of caramel maltiness here, which is fine. Tasty, but not very complex.

MOUTHFEEL: tad thin for fairly big IPA. Hops linger for only a moment and vanish so there’s not an annonying drying effect at all.

DRINKABILITY: Definitely a palatable beer. Not as obnoxiously dry as many west coast IPAs tend to be. Goes down smooth. Doesn’t sit heavy in the stomach.

OVERALL: Very good IPA. Probably could’ve been great had it been a bit more complex. I really dug that strawberry and pineapple sweetness. Also enjoyed the fact it wasn’t like a liquid desert in my mouth either. Definitely recommended!

This was delish! Started with really nice floral hoppy aroma. Poured a light copper color with a light white head that lasted to the bottom of the glass. Nice gentle carbonation.Nice hoppy flavor arrests your palate, with a nice blanket covering type mouthfeel! The after taste is a nice bittered hop. I want more of this beer in my fridge!

Pours a nice golden color with a decent-sized head. Some lacing as it goes down. The nose is mostly citrus hops with some orange coming through the strongest. A bit of sweet caramel malt. Taste is similar, with the hops being the dominant portion, as the malt brings only a little bit behind. Medium bodied with good carbonation ad a nice hop dryness. Good drinkability all around.

Boutip (5940) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with an average sixe foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of bitter and lightly citrus notes are dominant thought not as powerful as expected. Taste is also dominated by bitter and citrusy notes with a lightly sweet malt base. Body is about average with OK carbonation. Well brewed thought I was expecting a more powerful hops profile.

this beer is the standard to what an IPA should taste like, a great amount of both malt sweet and hoppy bitterness makes this a fantastic balance between the two, drink and enjoy.

reddish gold with large white head. nose of citrus hops. medium carbonation for the style. solid bitterness before some citrus hop flavor with a fair degree of low crystal sweetness before a moderate amount of residual sweetness. for my preference this is too sweet of an ipa with too much residual sweetness. this is likely an aged version and i imagine with fresher hops this would be a better version, but for now an average version of the style

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2010 Bottle. Pours a darker golden color with a big fluffy slightly off white head. Aroma is more malty than hoppy but the hops presence is more of a citrus variety then pine. The taste is more malty than I thought it would be but it does have a nice hops character to it. Nice lace left on the glass. Lingering bitterness with a touch of sweetness. Very easy drinking.

bottle. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average ceeamy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

12oz KC bottle. Pours a nice copper-bronze color with a huge, foamy khaki head that takes forever to settle...it’s like meringue. Stringy lacing. Kinda muted aroma but what escapes the head is sweeter west coast hops. Nice lighter flavor that is well balanced with the bitterness and malt. Nice to have a west coast IPA that is not knock-down drag out bitter.

Poured an orange amber hue with a white head that had good retention and great lace. Aroma was had a rich pine hop presence, nice caramel malts, and some citrus. Flavor was well balanced assertive hops and sweet malts. Finish was smooth and not dry. A good IPA.
