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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2008
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.

Floral. Lots of aroma. Very nice IPA that I swore I have rated. Citrus. Pine. All that elements of a fine West Coast IPA.

nearbeer (4609) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2008
12 oz. Clear orange-copper with a quarter-inch lasting head. Frosty glass all the way down. Nice aroma of caramel, earthy tea leaf and orange. Flavor is similar with a large dose of resin, some grapefruit, pecan and lightly peppery oak. Medium body is smoothly carbonated, yet hop-tingly and dry. Great session IPA and much better than Stones or DFH.

aplusbreaks (330) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2008
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.

Heavy hoppy. Large frothy, light brown body. Good lacing. Mostly lasting longevity. Clear orange body. Heavy bitter and malty flavor. Medium palate.

Lagunitasfan (1323) - 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.

Nik925 (783) - USA - NOV 29, 2008
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 (16227) - 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

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - NOV 20, 2008
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.
