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.

pours a bright deep gold, with a solid white head that descends to a thick lace. nose is thin and citrusy, with a light malt toasty-ness underneath. flavor mirrors the nose, with a big, thin, citric hoppiness up front, with some toasted malt flavors in the finish. the beer is more acidic than bitter, with the tartness of the hop flavor winning out over the actual bitterness. definately not too thick, but not as easy to drink as it should be due to the sharp citric-acid-like hop tang.

Orangebrown hazy beer with beige head. Really hoppy aroma with tons of fresh hops and citrus. Some alcohol tones and caramel ones too. Hoppy flavor with tones of chocolate and caramel. Growing citrus bitterness that really makes your saliva flow. This is one of best IPA´s I´ve had

Bottled, thanks marbles! Dark amber, small head. Grapefruit aroma. Dry with soft mouthfee. All dominated by grapefruity hops, butwith enough malt to back it up. There are more hop aroma than bitterness, but still there is a real kick of late bitterness. Really good stuff!

This did not live up to the hype that I expected. The beer poured with an enormous white head and was deep cloudy gold in color. The taste was very hoppy yet balanced but something just didn’t click in this beer. Worth a shot if you like IPA’s, but there are better examples out there to be had.

Got this bottle via trade. Good solid West coast IPA. Good Hop bite with just enough malt to go with it. Very balanced beer.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Cloudy amber colored beer with a big aroma of pineapple and flowers. Flavor is very hoppy and pineapply. Fairly well balnced with a sticky sweet finish. Bitterness is in check and complements the beer.

I’m a Stoutie. I’M A STOUTIE! But, Geez, I’m getting to love IPAs. Have had some great ones lately and love the stuff. This was another. Hazy amber with nice white head. Hoppy/grapefruit nose. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor was crisp, clean, refreshing, citrusy hops. Damned good.

Copper with a thin tan head. The nose is WOW hops with grapefruit and kick. The taste is almost too hoppy and one directional. I know it is supposed to be like that But I just dont dig it right now.

Bottle. You know what...I really liked this IPA. It pours a clear orange color with a medium off-white head that laced pretty well. Aroma is citrus, pine with a decent malt backbone. The flavor did not dissipoint. Nice malt/hop balance that leads to a very well profiled beer. Body is medium and finishes crisp and clean. Yeah, this is good.
