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.

22oz bomber. Excellent pour. Deep reddish-amber.Long-lasting head with nice lacing. Nose was like bread and something else I couldn’t identify. Somewhat off. Taste was just bitter, with nothing else added. I detected no malt, no citrus, no nothing. Mouthfeel was quite nice. Finish was metallic. I did not finish the bottle.

Hops rule supreme in this one, unsurprisingly. This felt like a light IIPA, hopped beyond its backbone. Aroma was great taste was sticky without the goodness.

TURDFERGUSON (4006) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Bottle. Pretty clear orange amber with small white head. Nose has heavy floral, grassy, and citrus hop notes amidst some malts. Also noted a whiff of solvent. Like Jamie says, it is a bit too grassy. I by grassy I mean it tastes like I am eating grass. Regular mow the lawn grass, not marijuana. just to be clear.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2013 Bottle from Sams, Durham. You know that you have had a shit ton of beer when you say, just another well crafted, flavorful, superbly balanced SD IPA. And that is what you get with Big Eye, jaded drinker or not. The beer starts out, after the handsome pour, with a big burst of floral aromas and flavors. But you really do get a nice toasted malt backbone here, for a slightly distinctive personality. Quite fine.

Balanced to a fault. Orange color with a decent white head. Grassy nose with hints of citrus and pine. Flavor is the same way with a strong malt backbone. I could actually do without the grassiness in this one. Decent beer.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2008
draft at homebrew mart location - light orange with slight haze and fluffy white head; huge aromas of grassy hops, fruit, citrus and pine; plenty of body and malt with steady dose of bitterness and hops; a delicious IPA

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Bottle from Sams in Durham. Clear golden orange pour with nearly white head. Earthy, grassy, and a nice malt backbone behind a good deal of citrus and resin from the hops. Slightly spicy finish.

drfabulous (4494) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Floral. Lots of aroma. Very nice IPA that I swore I have rated. Citrus. Pine. All that elements of a fine West Coast IPA.

nearbeer (3998) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2008
12 oz. Clear orange-copper with a quarter-inch lasting head. Frosty glass all the way down. Nice aroma of caramel, earthy tea leaf and orange. Flavor is similar with a large dose of resin, some grapefruit, pecan and lightly peppery oak. Medium body is smoothly carbonated, yet hop-tingly and dry. Great session IPA and much better than Stones or DFH.

Bottle: fresh in San Diego, explosion of hops, herbal, grassy and clean. Great!
