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.

22 ounce bottle. Pour light amber or dark golden. Long lasting white head with some good lace. This thing must have been filter to death. Pretty good blend of hops in the nose. Pine and citrus of course. It doesnít blow your head off. Thereís a decent layer of malt layer there as well. Cookie-ish. The flavor is more to the pine side of hops. Well balanced with a perfect malt base. Plenty bitter with out ripping you tongue to shreds. Medium/full body. A little bit oily. Fairly dry finish. Average carbonation. Very good. A real value at less than 5 dollars a bomber. Iíd be more likely to buy again in 12 ounce bottles.

Stuedmaster (346) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 17, 2008
22 oz. bottle from Pacific Liquor on El Cajon Blvd. Iíll admit Iím a bit biased because these guys sell me my homebrew supplies, but nonetheless, this is really an awesome IPA. Earthy malt base with piney and citrusey floral hop overtones. The aroma is somewhat astringent but the wonderfully complex floral and citrus scents compensate for this. It has a nice amber/copper appearance with good head and lacing. The flavor is strong but not overwhelming. The finish is an aggressive, lingering bitterness but very pleasant.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2008
Bottle. Poured a deep copper body with thin head. Aroma is citrus hops, grass. Flavor is light citrus and a heavy sweet malty taste. The malt overwhelmes this one. A tad rough at times.

RomanW70 (296) - 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. Iím 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 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2008
Found this one bottled at Lundeenís 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 IPAís Iíve had recently.
