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.

Bottle! Pours copper with a rocky cream head. Aroma is big fruit - mostly grapefruit and lemon - and sweet malt way in the background. Tastes strongly of candied citrus peel with little malt backbone. Big and unique hops taste, but a little unbalanced for me. Very refreshing and drinkable.

BiddleBrau (1001) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Hazy copper with dense off-white head. Great aroma, malt and hops come through. Dry hop bitterness, flavor is a bit astringent. Malt is apparent on the back of the tongue. Nice IPA; well balanced between hop flavor, bitterness and malt.

MinetoKuroda (12) - Nihombashi Chuo-ku, JAPAN - MAY 13, 2009
On tap.This is really Migoto na IPA. I find it’s carefully brewed in every process and every minutes. Lively, Smooth and round. It’s like I’m diving and drinking under the clear sea with having good water pressure. Very Oishi!

KyotoLefty (7134) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2009 Tap at Thrashzone. Big round fruitiness. Mellow flavor and mouth feel, with a bit of candy or bubble gum, citrus and other fruits. Complex and lovely with a big flavor and great balance.

Capa (2209) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Bronze in color with a nice head. Citrus, lemon, malty, floral aroma. Very balanced flavor. Citrus, floral, pine, grapefruit, light lemon, and some caramel. Medium bodied. Thoroughly refreshing. THis is a mighty fine IPA.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle at the Padres game. Pours a deep gold. Nose is floral hops. Taste is full of pale malt with a good hop backing. A little backwards then most ipas but a cool change. Mouth is chewy with a mild bitterness.

zizzybalubba (1565) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2009 22 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of peach, pineapple, grapefruit, and pine. Every bit as good as I had remembered; big bitter grapefruit hop flavor. Just outstanding. You don’t typically find flavor this big in a single IPA. At 6% you get most of the big hop flavor of a DIPA without the high alcohol. This is, to date, my favorite IPA.

dogfish120love (1028) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Orange with a dense snow white head. Sweet caramel mildly hoppy and underwhelming. I hope the tap lines where dirty other wise I really couldn’t see buying this again

guzzler67 (1538) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2009
Clear copper appearance with a fairly large, creamy, beige head and good lacing. Sharp citrus hop aroma almost overwhelmes a mild, sweet malt underpinning. Taste developes more citrus fruit flavors with some floral notes in the aftertaste. Decent malt backbone adds balance. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel and a dry, bitter finish. Really do like this one.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 rating 300. On tap at the San Diego Beer Party. Wow this is great! A fantasticly balanced IPA. Not too heavy and not overly hoppy, but still with a fair bite. I ended up having a few pints of this, rather than get in to some of the other beers available. Up there with the green flash as best IPA imho
