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.

vyvvy (3876) - 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.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Slightly hazy, deep golden colored pour with a long lasting creamy head. Aroma of pine, citrus and light floral hops. Flavor is nicely balanced, with sweet roasty malt that is overpowered by the big hops on the finish. A bit creamy on the palate. This is a very nice IPA.

On tap at the brewery during RBSG 08. Pours amber with a big, fluffy, white head. Big hoppy aroma, with spices, and a bit herbal. Taste is sharp and bitter, of hops and herbs. Nice lingering bitterness. Very tasty IPA.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2008
Flaske. Super IPA, med en dejlig maltbase til at bakke op om en rimelig diskret humle. Duft af mango og eksotiske frugter. Smagen er også derhen af. Passede perfekt til de ruller min kone og jeg delte her på vores 3 års bryllupsdag. Dejlig øl.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
Strong aroma of wooden hop resin. Pours a clear dark gold color with a thin white head. Good flavor of woody hop resin and pine needles, there’s strong bitterness that leaves a pineapple feeling in the mouth. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Bronze colored beer with a wispy head of foam that lasts well. Very nice hop aroma that gives notions of spruce, pine, lemon, hop oil....It’s pure and quite nice. Flavor is super hoppy. Big on flavor hops, but light on bitterness, not in a bad way. Woody hoppiness, with well structured notes of lemon, grapefruit, spruce and pine. Really nice beer. Beautifully hoppy and impressive. Up there with some of the best SoCal IPA’s.

radiomgb (2182) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2008
Orange-copper in colour with a lingering but thin off-white coloured head, very nice lacing. The aroma is quite hoppy, floral, orange citrus, some pine and soap. The flavour was quite hoppy, high sweetness, dry, citrus and pine. Hoppy sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes lingering, sweet, dry and hoppy.

I liked how this dried out at the end bringing the hops to the forefront, really enjoyable.

355ml bottle obtained in a trade with JohnnyJ, thanks John.
