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.

Hansen (6495) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2008
One of the better IPA. Light amber colour, clear. Has an off-white head, lasting. Flavor is very hopped, light rubber-notes too. Flavor is moderate sweet and heavy bitter. Dry, dry texture.

pinkzambia (1436) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 29, 2008
22 oz. Bottle: Clear copper with a frothy off-white head. Strong juniper aroma abounds with a strong bitter flavor akin to its aroma with a little perfuminess in the aftertaste. Sticky lacing all over the glass. Overall, it is a solid IPA with a strong bitter flavor that virtually covers every square inch of your mouth. Very enjoyable.

maugus4ever (123) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Pours copper with a thin dissipating head. Nice citrusy, hoppy aroma with flavor to match. This was a very enjoyable IPA with a good balance of hops and malts.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours copper orange with sticky beige head. The aroma is pine, mango, and a light honeyish sweetness. The flavor is toasty malt and a disembodied fruitiness, with canteloupe, orange, and mango. At first taste it strikes me as a little more gentle and malty than I thought it would be, but it finishes with a strong piney bitterness that lingers into an aftertaste of wood and grass. Pretty good.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle. Nice orange pour, some white head that dissipated quickly. Nice citrus, orange peel, and pine hop aroma, The flavor is just like the aroma, lots of orange peel / grapefruit-like bitter flavor. Some resin and pine in the back. Nice ipa... I think this was a good year for hops b/c all the CA IPAs have it going on.

Had it as a sampler at Stone 12th, then ordered it later that night for dinner. Full bodied, wonderful tropical fruit like hops, malts with perfect sweetness.

FrankJohansen (3602) - Sabro, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2008
Bottle. Clear orange colour with a fairly large whie head and a good lacing. Sweettish taste of malts and fruits with a good heavy hoppy finish with notes of citrus and flowers. Good beer.

vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Pours clear copper with an off-white rocky head. The aroma has grapefruit / floral hops with some pine and some malt for the backbone. Medium body that has a bit of roughness with some moderately harsh carbonation on the finish. The flavor starts with lots of hoppiness ~ grapefruit, light pine, woodiness, caramel malt backing things up. There are some oxidized characteristics but this is supposed to be fresh. The finish shows more oxidization and is quite harsh. A decent beer, but didn’t live up to the hype.
