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.

(on bottle) Got this beer from my wife, I needed some cheering-up. Being an clear amber color and having a beauitfull white foamy head, it looked like it would work. The nose was a hopattack of , yeah well hops; citric, piny and tropical fruity. The Taste was a true joy of a good bite of hops and firm malts(malts of the light side tho´). Finish goes nice and deep, both refreshing, a small, tart bite and a wellbalanced malttone, resulting in a full and happy-making beer.

22oz’er...Light copper hue with creamy white head, mild citrus hop with light floral hint, not overwhelmingly hoppy, decent bitterness, notes of citrus, toffee with some earthy tones, rather smooth, not very thick alcoholic or bitter, above average IPA, quality and enjoyable taste.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 23, 2008
Bottle. Copper coloured with a foamy creamwhite head. A massive hoppylicious smell of pine, fruit and flowers. Flavour is bitter, almost like soap with a little liquorice added. Nice and dry, this is really a great beer.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Big is definitely a way to describe this beer. Big looks, big aroma and big taste. Definite pine and citrus notes from the nose and taste. Finishes well with a lingering bitterness.

Dedollewaitor (15469) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2008
65cl bottle bought@vinensverden,Odense. Pours copper (into my rogue glass) with a large creamy white head & lacings. Aroma and taste are aggresively hoppy. Lots of fruity & floral hops. Some sweet toffee/caramel. Smooth & soft palate. Heavy bitter hoppy & dry end. I would perhaps prefer if they turned down the perfumy/flowery hops down a notch as it gets very harsh, but other than that no complaints. Good!

Skinnyviking (8645) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle. High fluffy but lasting off-white head. Clear dark brown body. It would be an understatement to write that the aroma is hoppy I can smell nothing else than hops. The hops bitterness is also dominating the flavor. Low carbonation. Long bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 Another awesome IPA from craig! Bomber, and cask at good-dog bar during phly beer week: Nice golden orange color, decent head. Taste was sweet hops with a nice strong bitterness in the end. Lots of tropical fruit, mango, peaches....Texture was medium. Pretty smooth and could easily be an every day beer. I brought it to a tasting and everyone liked it. Thanks again craig for the awesome west coast IPA’s!

Bottle at Řlbaren, Copenhagen
Amber color; creamy generous head. Good ipa, with caramel and toffee flavor, and partially aromatic hop, and of course strong bitterness; also lightly fruity flavor and light earthy/manure aroma; the bitterness is getting lightly astringent at the end. Quite good.
