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.

RomanW70 (297) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - APR 6, 2008
Pours amber gold with a frothy head. Big aroma of hops; citrus, pine, and sweet malts. Flavor was well balanced, with sweet malts up front, though floral hops to a bitter/citrus finish. Very nice IPA. I’m looking forard to more Ballast Point

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2008
Aroma was full of fresh hops as if I just pulled them out of my own hops freezer very floral and a little spicy. Poured deep golden with 1 finger of white head that laced nicely on the glass. Flavor was not as enjoyable as aroma. Really grassy and a little garlicy, but it had gotten better by the end of the glass and was more citrus tasting. mouthfeel was oliy and fully. a decent ipa.

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2008
Found this one bottled at Lundeen’s in DeKalb, Illinois. Hazy light copper pour with a nice, fluffy rose colored head. Brassy, piney hoppiness in the nose, balanced with some bright citrus notes. Potent bitterness from intense hoppiness. Grapefruit and orange rind, rosewater from start to finish. Very strong finish, tapers to a strong bitterness at the back of the tounge. Among the finest IPA’s I’ve had recently.

Pours a nice amber with lacy white head. Aromas of pine, resin, and floral notes. Flavors strong of pine with a nice bite from hops in the finish. Solid IPA overall.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2008
650ml. bottle. Pours out in a clear amber colour with dense rocky white head. big hop-aroma of pine-needles, resin. grapefruit and orange-blossom with sweet undertones of caramel and peaches. Medium to full-bodied with loads of resinous, floral and grapefruity hops in the flavour with a caramelly backbone. Long bitter and dry finish of grapefruit and grass. Extremely well-made IPA.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 30, 2008
(on bottle) Got this beer from my wife, I needed some cheering-up. Being an clear amber color and having a beauitfull white foamy head, it looked like it would work. The nose was a hopattack of , yeah well hops; citric, piny and tropical fruity. The Taste was a true joy of a good bite of hops and firm malts(malts of the light side tho´). Finish goes nice and deep, both refreshing, a small, tart bite and a wellbalanced malttone, resulting in a full and happy-making beer.

22oz’er...Light copper hue with creamy white head, mild citrus hop with light floral hint, not overwhelmingly hoppy, decent bitterness, notes of citrus, toffee with some earthy tones, rather smooth, not very thick alcoholic or bitter, above average IPA, quality and enjoyable taste.
