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.

Nate (4171) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2010
On tap at Rivertowne North Shore. Decent hoppy aroma, a bit stale. Light floral and fruity character. Mild caramel sweetness. A touch of spicy hop character. Clear amber body with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts sweet with caramel and brown sugar. Neutral fruity hop character. Some oxidation notes, caramelized sugar tang. Hop bitterness in finish with mild astringency. Decent IPA but a little unbalanced, too sweet up front and harsh bitter after.

Ar - Faint hint of oranges, and lots of caramel. Ap - Brone shot thru with golden highlights. Nice. T - Big, malty, caramel with more orange. m - Nice, clean for a beer that threatens thick on the nose. Overall - American IPA, no more no less. Little underwhelmed with this one.

Bottle, picked up from CBX. Poured a pretty amberish gold with not much of a head to speak of, just a thin blanket of white foam. Aroma was a fantastic punch of citrusy hops. Super fresh, resiny goodness. Just enough malty sweetness to give it that candied hop aroma. Flavors held up nicely to the aroma. Obvious citrusy hop flavors up front with a pleasing and expected bitter finish. Perfectly balanced, semi-sweet hop flavors balanced nicely with the bitter finish. Wish I would have bought more!

Dense white head on a clear honey colored beer. Aroma is sweet citrus and some tropical or sweet-tart notes. Taste is the same, and juicy with hops without any bracing bitterness. $3/12oz

JMerritt (1940) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Medium gold with a moderate bright white head. Grapefruit, vanilla cookie, subtle black pepper nose. Mild-to-moderate carbonation, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavor with a very mild alcoholic finish. Very tasty, refreshing and zesty IPA. 2010 Western Illinois University Performing Arts Society Beerfest.

Where are your palates people? This beer starts off nice, then gives you a punch of some kind of weird off hop thing. Finishes like every other forgettable IPA I have had in my life. Glad I only purchased one.

tennisjoel (1344) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Amber orange pour. Thick white head. A little bit of a candied hop profile. Slightly harsh on the tongue. Overall a well made IPA, but I think having this after Pliny and being assaulted with hops, it might have been better to have this another time. Still very solid.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with a nice thick, off-white head, good lacing. Aromas of pine and lemon. Analogous flavors with an added layer of butterscotch and a warm touch of alcohol. Medium bodied with a bite at the mid-tongue. Nicely nuanced.
