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.

Travlr (19489) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2010 Bomber shared with steptin and bouche. Bright golden color, huge fluffy white head, massive lacing. Aroma of lemon trees, pine forests and grassy meadows. The taste actually brings you to mountain meadows and pine forests. Wonderful stuff. Bottle shared with Nick and Sica from Connecticut. Nice stuff.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Pours a really nice clear deep copper color with medium foamy offwhite head that quickly dissapates. Aroma is a really really good balance of sweet citrus. Smells delicious. Flavor has some alcohol warmth up front with some piney earthy hops, nice caramel malt base that is not too sweet, and a resiny bitter dry hop finish. Overall, very nice ipa.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle, SF Embarcadero Market. Drank this after sampling Pliny the Elder and I loved this even more. Warming, bursting with flavour and aroma. Tasted much stronger than 6%. Caramel, grassy hops and spirit come to mind. Rounded beyond belief. A truly awesome beer, massive.......!

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle (in NZ). Great big pillowy head head turns me on. A bready caramel malt nose with a delightful pine and citrus touch. Palate not overly bitter, but balance between the malt and hops is about right, the sweetness of the malt just dominating a touch. Just a solid goodie this.

brokensail (15203) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
A: The pour is a copper color with a fluffy white head and some mild lacing. S: Lots of citrus hops on the nose and not all that much else. A bit of pine and bread in the background. Quite a pungent aroma, actually. T: The flavor is less intense than the nose would let on, unfortunately. I still got the citrus and pine, but they were not quite as powerful. A bit of bread and sweetness, too. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation. The finish is mildly bitter. D: One of the first IPAs I had back when I got into beer, and to be honest, it’s a little better than I had remembered. Not my favorite by any means, but it’s still a good beer.

Bottle pours a hazy orange beer with a pillowy off-white head and some lacing. Scent is sweet, hoppy and some cut grass. Taste is hoppy with a dry light bitter finish. Very Nice!

Served from growler into a Samuel Smith imperial pint. Pours yellow-orange with an off-white two finger frothy head. Maintains nice lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of citrus and hops. The flavor was of malt and bitter hop. It was medium on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was not a bad IPA. It was not excessively hoppy but not under hoppy either. It was not my favorite IPA, but not my least favorite either. The drinkability on this one is great as well.
