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.

Deep dark amber, resiny pine aroma. First few sips are really woody, as it warmed, the citrus came out more, but the woodiness wasn’t really well integrated and overpowered it, IMO. Bonus point for value, but fairly pedestrian.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 22oz bomber for under 3 bucks not bad wow..orange copper pour, little head and nice lace..citrus hop bomb aroma, taste of pine, spruce more hops, with a great malt balance to finish..what a surprise, the elegant balance and flavor of this ipa is very enjoyable, i thought the cheap price was a indication of a less quality beer but that was far from the truth, this ones highly recommended here especially with a bomber price that’s half the norm..just a great beer...

Bottle. Poured a dark clear amber. Hoppy piny nose. Flavor is also hoppy, and sticky with a good balance, but leans to the hops. Solid bitter finish. Another good beer out of SoCal

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 29, 2009
On cask at Toronado, SD. Pours amber with a thick creamy off-white head. Realy nice hoppy aroma of peppers, citrus and juniper. Low carbonation and very very smooth. Fairly quick finish with lots of pine flavors. Intense beatitudes of hops. Amazing spruce and pine. This is GOOD STUFF on cask.

junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Im getting a certain amount of nutty notes in both the bouquet and flavour. I suppose thats the malt. Body is a little more than medium I think. Description says 6%abv while the bottle says 7%abv. Ill trust the bottle but it tastes like 6%.

Bottle pours amber color with off white head. Aroma is hops and some caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is tart hop, citrus, and some caramel. Nice hop finish. Good brew.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2009
Bottled. Thanks to Lars R. Dark amber colour with a persistent hop-induced foam. Malt stands back in aroma, here the hops speak the loudest about grape, wood and citrus. Flavourwise, it’s malty, but again hops dominate, and I think Centennial plays an important role, with its grapey, resiny character. Mouthfeel is chewy, and the attenuation seems to be average. Good beer! What I don’t get is how can a beer with OG 1070 and FG 1015 be 6%???

On draft at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours a clear, dark amber colour with a slight white head. Aroma of hops, malts, and grapefruit. Flavour of hops, grassy notes, malts,and citrus.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - JUN 17, 2009
Exceptionally good IPA that had a real hop bite without being *too* overbearing. Strong citrus smell, strong malty backbone, and a nice thick head all made this one memorable. Almost reminded me more of a very balance Double IPA.
