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.

Bebum (280) - - MAY 3, 2014
Medium amber, sparkingly clear color, tall, persistent mustard color head. Intense herbal nose. Full body, dense flavor concentration, balanced mouthfeel if you can tolerate this much bitterness, lingering palate. Very bitter, dry but not completely so, bright acidity, Assertive flavor of grapefruit, herbs, Extreme beer class, I like it, but would welcome more sweetness, with the risk of making it less distinctive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Braudog (5591) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Wow ... big time dry-hopped mushiness ... chewy, masculine and bitter-forward, as much as a beer can be. This is a beautiful beer all the way around ... perfect visuals ... rich orange/amber, frothy big head. Both the aroma and flavor is piled with layers and layers of oily hops. Outstanding.

RumRunner101 (750) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
Clear, light amber pour. Aroma is pine, lavender, bitter orange peel. Not a lot of malt complexity. Floral and piney bitterness. Bitter finish with grapefruit rind.

TXBadger (1256) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours a very nice clear golden color. Citrus, grapefruit, lemon, and a bit of floral notes on the nose; all follow onto the palate. Pretty smooth, finishes clean. Medium bodied.

GenkiGonzo (220) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 26, 2014
Bottle at Tadg. Pours gold with very small head. Big west coast hop nose. Flavour has great fruity hops and great bitter finish. Solid IPA.

tcane7 (1657) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2014
Draft at Alla Spina. Pours amber with thin white head and some lace. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, pine, lemon. Medium body. Decent hoppy flavor – citrus mostly with some pine with a strong malty backbone. Haven’t had this one in a while and I don’t think this is the freshest one I’ve had. I don’t recall this being this malty.
