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 orange amber with rocky 1/2 finger head. Caramel nose with some citrus and grass. Big caramel backbone with moderate bitter and some grassy/citrus notes. It’s an old bottle, but still good.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2010
UPDATED: APR 12, 2011 Bottle. 12 oz. Split with James and Tony. Pours a deep, hazy orange with a thin, white, sudsy head. Quickly recedes and leaves an insanely lingering, tightly-bubbled lace behind. Aroma is fantastic: huge sweet, juicy hops, grapefruit, pine, dank diesel, and light notes of caramel from the malt. Loose, easy-going palate matches the refreshing, loose tone of the beer. Super juicy citrus fruit in the flavor, as well as nice earthy, vanilla notes. Awesomely smooth, mildly hoppy finish. One of the best single IPAs out there.

Bottle split with Pat and Tone. Pours a clear amber body with soapy white lacing. The aroma is pleasantly sweet, and almost malty and hoppy. The mouthfeel is great, medium body with nice complex hop flavor.

Pours slightly hazy orange/amber with a thick beige head. Aroma is floral, sweet citrus, mild pine, fruit, herb. Taste is more in your face bitter with lots of sweet malt. Pretty bitter overall. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Bottle: Clear amber with a white head, fairly light nose of pine and a hint of citrus, flavor was so so, very light malt with a bit of citrus and hops in the finish, pretty light mouthfeel and kinda watery to me.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5188) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2010
Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joes in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a medium orange-amber color with a large soapy white head that produced great lacing. The aroma was strong bitter and tart grapefruit, lemon and lime. The flavor was bitter and tangy with strong fruity hops - grapefruit and lime predominantly. There were undercurrents of sour nuts and yeastiness. the finish was medium length, bitter, fruity and a touch dry. Fairly full bodied. Good but a bit short of great.

22 oz bomber. Thanks to thaichile for this one! A-Body is a cloudy bright amber that pours with a large off-white head. Great retention at 1 finger. Plenty of lacing left in the glass. Cloudiness is moderately thick and uniform and tiny bubbles can be seen rising to the top. Beautiful beer. S- Plenty of citrus and spicy hop flavors dominate the nose. A slight malt presence can be noted in the background. T-Citrus hop flavor is the highlight upfront with a soft toffee-like malt backbone. These flavors completely disappear for the finish where a big spicy hop flavor and a hint of roasted malt bitterness are showcased. Left to linger is some spicy hop flavor and a mild but long lasting residual bitterness. Lots going on. Very nice. P- low to medium carbonation. Body is smooth and somewhat oily but seems to have that bottle-conditioned yeast presence to add to it. O- This is a very nice west coast IPA. The bottle states a big floral hop presence but what I got from it was more of a spicy than floral presence (big plus for me). I’ll remember that I like this one for future trades and when I travel.
