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.

Copper pour with a frothy offwhite head. sweet malty and slightly resinous hops aroma. Flavor is sweet, sticky malt and mild resinous hops and a decently bitter finish. Mild but tastey

Clear copper with minimal carbonation. Hoppy, sweet aroma, balanced flavor profile that finishes cleanly.

Bottle a few days ago. Good IPA. Iím wondering what Sculpin will be like, since apparently neither is a DIPA. Pretty moderate for a west coast IPA. Thumbs up.

I walked into a 7-11 in San Diego and was amazed to see something of this caliber (Iím from Colorado). Nice orange color with citrus aromas. Taste was weaker than I expected, because I always assume San Diego IPAís have to be stellar. Still, nice flavors of citrus hops with a good malty body.This one was good but not spectacular.

Served cold from tap at brewery. Aroma of piney hops, flavor follows through with big hop bitterness and good spice. Good mouthfeel. Dry finish. Yum.

Had heard a whole lot of good about this IPA and was quite eager to pick one up finally. Pours a pale and very hazy copper with a rocky white head. Aroma smells of candy malt sweetness and some fainter hints of citrus hops - tangerine, orange, and lemons in particular. Taste is over-whelmingly sweet and cloying. Definite taste of sweet tarts. This clashes horribly with the hops. This was a real letdown and I wonder if it was intended this way. I certainly hope not. I donít think that I can finish the glass, let alone the bottle, and that saddens me greatly.

Pours copperish orange with a one finger head that leaves lacing - Strong citrus aroma that rivals some DIPAís - Not overwhelming but solid bitterness on that palate - very well balanced - Loved it!

What a beautiful beer, in every sense of the word. Looks stunning in the glass, deep orange/amber with cream coloured thick foamy head which persists down the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and freshly baked biscuits. Flavour is the same, but is far from one dimensional. Thereís depth here, and I just canít get over how fresh this beer tastes. The finish goes on forever, and the sweet malts really make themselves known, but the perfect bitterness balances well. Just a great beer.

Great IPA thatís all citrus. Stood up nicely to a much hoppier beer I was drinking right next to it. A very simple IPA but one thatís clean and pungent and full of great hoppy bitterness.
