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.

22oz Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a 1 finger white head that retains nicely, spotty lacing. Aromas heavy on the pine, and citrus, grapefruit and something else tropical. Flavors a hoppy yet balanced nicely by the malts. Caramel malt, pine, resin. Body is quite nice, medium bodied, with the perfect amount of carbonation.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 4, 2008
On hand pumped cask at Stone today. Dry hopped with Centennial and German Tettanger Hops. Amazing dense white head. Took a long time for foam to rise and settle, like a Boddingtons from the can. Nice orange amber color. Smooth and mellow body with sweet bite from the hops. Piny and sharp, but mellow too.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 Blueberries and bubblegum aroma that sadly does not transfer to the taste. Medium bitterness with some berry flavor on the back of the tongue. An excellent average IPA .

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2009 Bottle, 22oz, at the European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. A clear, dark golden beer with a small off-white head. Hop-driven nose with a nice blend of citrus, pinecones and resin. Malt in the background. The flavor goes in the same direction with the maltyness playing second violin, and it ends with a lasting bitter finish. Full body. Quenching, easy to drink IPA. Lovely. Rating: 7-4-8-4-15-3.8. 080912

Bottle, 22oz. It’s a slightly hazy, orange-golden beer with a finger-thick beige head. Malty-sweet nose with pinecones and citrus, grapefruit mostly. Sweet, pale malts in the flavor, beef-stock as well, with resins, pinecones and grapefruit. Not very bitter, the focus is on the fruity and piney flavors. Full body. A quite lovely one. 090828

UPDATED: APR 10, 2009 updated 4/10/09: bomber, $4.99. Pours light gold-orange, with medium head. Soapy aroma, with strong floral and piney notes. Palate is crisp, with lingering finish. Flavors of sweet tangerine, orange marmalade, and grapefruit are most prominent. Overall, this beer is perfectly tasty, a very soapy-sweet rendition.

On tap at Chandler Whole Foods with cascade hops. Pours a light golden color with a respectable white head. Loaded with hops in the aroma and flavor. Faint citrus and malt. Perfect for pairing with bar food.

Rusty (1543) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Special keg dry hopped with amarillo hops @ Chandler Whole Foods. Pours a nice hazy golden color with a decent white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, pine, and malt. Flavor is big citrusy hoppy bitter goodness. The regular version of this is a good IPA, but the dry hopped version was fantastic.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Glowing golden color with two-finger width head that slowly recedes back into the beer or clings to the side of the glass. Pillowy head made up of small fluffy bubbles. Aroma is strong (I could smell it well while I was pouring) Initially I got whiffs of caramel, pine, and some citrus. Upon a deeper inhalation, a floral bouquet became apparent with a lighter piny aroma and some notes of tropic fruit, grapefruit and kiwi. The mouthfeel is larger than I expected as the hoppiness dominates my mouth. The flavor is complex yet satisfying! I can best describe it as a light toffee and caramel core with a citrus and pine hoppy perimeter. This is one of my favorite IPAs!
