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.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 13, 2008
On CASK at O’Brien’s. Appearance is a murky amber-orange hue, thin layer of bubbles and no lacing (cask). Smell is fresh green hops, heavy orange/citrus emphasis, some raw pale malts, honey sweetness rounds it out. Taste is a perfect mix of malts and orange-forward hops, some sour grapefruit and cotton candy in the middle, finishes smooth and bitter. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, watery-to-slick texture, mild carbonation (cask). A nice and sweet IPA that hold up well in the cask version, low alcohol presence in the session range, the hops shine through but there is great balance here.

Nice foam with a big hop aroma. In the taste the hops are clearly present but not enough maltiness to balance the bitterness.
