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.

Pours a nice copper/amber, quite clear, with a medium sized white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing... I get more malt in the nose than hops... Some citrus and grassy/piney hops get through.... Tastes a wee bit creamy, the alcohol comes through as well... Hops are quite present, but again the malt is a bit too sweet for me... Good beer overall, but the alcohol and sweetness of the malt left me wanting a bit more...

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Bomber. Poured a clear copper-amber color with a thick, rocky off-white head that slowly receded and left nice lacing. Aroma of fresh, juicy citrus fruit (orange, tangerine, apricot, and peach) and some floral, leafy hops. Smooth, fruity entry with hints of orange and tangerine greets the tongue and slowly transitions into a fresh, leafy hoppiness with a slight undertone of caramel malt that pairs well with the hops to create a dry, earthy finish. Moderate carbonation and nice mouthfeel. Easy to drink and pretty good.

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 (4039) - 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.

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

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.
