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.

Bottle purchased at Buyrite Liquors in South Plainfield, NJ. Appearance: Beautiful hazed orange with honey lemon corners. A huge 3 finger off white crown with loads of retention and lace. The crown is really frothy and gets nice and dense like whipped cream after you let it settle and repour a few times. This is what I want my IPAís to look like. Smell: A large burst of floral and citrus hops fill the nose. Grass, mandarin orange, lemon zest, lightly toasted malt. Taste: Resiny pine hops, toffee, citrus zest, and of touch of astringency. Mouthfeel: A touch thin Drinkability: Not hard to kick back because of the thin mouthfeel but the flavor isnít that enjoyable. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-27-2009

Clear hazy orange-amber pour with a one finger off white foamy head. The aroma is evident upon uncapping, but it ever so delectable when actually sniffed. Citrus is simply massive- tons of orange and grapefruit with hints of orangepeel. The hop character rounds out with a nice floral grass arrangement that leaves the nose quivering for more. The malt character is very caramel oriented with some biscuit, toffee, and toast coming in as well. The flavor is a bit more malt heavy that the aroma would suggest, but the balance is wondrous. Lots of sweeter citrus including sugared grapefruit, orange, and even some tropical fruit notes. More grass and herbal notes as well, but they are suitably overwhelmed by the massive citrus character. Tons of caramel and toffee round out the malt character and present an excellently balancing sweetness. The palate is medium to full for the style with a velvety caressing mouthfeel and a resinous finish. Yummmm.

Amber pour. Whitish head. Citrus and floral hops abound. Good grapefruit peel and some grainy malt to balance the nose a bit. Flavor is nice and hoppy. Spicy citrus hops with just enough malty sweetness. Good stuff. BP strikes again!

Pours orange amber with rocky 1/2 finger head. Caramel nose with some citrus and grass. Big caramel backbone with moderate bitter and some grassy/citrus notes. Itís an old bottle, but still good.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2011 Bottle. 12 oz. Split with James and Tony. Pours a deep, hazy orange with a thin, white, sudsy head. Quickly recedes and leaves an insanely lingering, tightly-bubbled lace behind. Aroma is fantastic: huge sweet, juicy hops, grapefruit, pine, dank diesel, and light notes of caramel from the malt. Loose, easy-going palate matches the refreshing, loose tone of the beer. Super juicy citrus fruit in the flavor, as well as nice earthy, vanilla notes. Awesomely smooth, mildly hoppy finish. One of the best single IPAs out there.

Bottle split with Pat and Tone. Pours a clear amber body with soapy white lacing. The aroma is pleasantly sweet, and almost malty and hoppy. The mouthfeel is great, medium body with nice complex hop flavor.

Had with James and pat. Pour is a clear amber gold. Some head. Aroma is hops, strawberry, and some tartness. Flavor is bitter, taste of breads, and something salty.

Pours slightly hazy orange/amber with a thick beige head. Aroma is floral, sweet citrus, mild pine, fruit, herb. Taste is more in your face bitter with lots of sweet malt. Pretty bitter overall. Medium body, soft carbonation.
