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.

From a can. Looks and smells great. Seems to be sculpins hoppier, more bitter brother. When it comes to IPA's I prefer a little more balance between malt and hops but I can deal. Solid IPA, particularly for the hop heads.

12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 2 fingers slightly tan head, golden color, clear, good lacing.

JMurph72 (21) - - FEB 17, 2015
Aroma: piney, malty, slightly more toasty than I would expect of an IPA Appearance: perfect pale amber with white lacy head that lingers throughout the entire experience Taste: slight bitterness upfront with an even more bitter finish, and a slightly acidic finish Mouthfeel: very light bodied, slightly sticky feel Overall it's a good ipa, but I don't get as much grapefruit that is in other reviews. I get the bitterness of a grapefruit, but not the citrus flavors

teromous (119) - - FEB 15, 2015
12oz bottle: no freshness date that I can see

Appearance: Very transparent dark copper body that looks beautiful under a very thick off-white head.

Aroma: I get a very strong orange zest aroma. There’s a bit of a pine aroma in there as well. It smells very fresh.

Taste: I get a light bitter grapefruit flavor, and the aftertaste has a grain flavor.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is off-dry with a good amount of bitterness that doesn’t linger.

Overall: It was a really good IPA. I live on the East Coast and this is a beer brewed in CA, and it tastes very fresh. I am impressed by that. I would buy it again
