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.

JMerritt (1898) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Medium gold with a moderate bright white head. Grapefruit, vanilla cookie, subtle black pepper nose. Mild-to-moderate carbonation, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavor with a very mild alcoholic finish. Very tasty, refreshing and zesty IPA. 2010 Western Illinois University Performing Arts Society Beerfest.

Where are your palates people? This beer starts off nice, then gives you a punch of some kind of weird off hop thing. Finishes like every other forgettable IPA I have had in my life. Glad I only purchased one.

tennisjoel (1241) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Amber orange pour. Thick white head. A little bit of a candied hop profile. Slightly harsh on the tongue. Overall a well made IPA, but I think having this after Pliny and being assaulted with hops, it might have been better to have this another time. Still very solid.

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a nice thick, off-white head, good lacing. Aromas of pine and lemon. Analogous flavors with an added layer of butterscotch and a warm touch of alcohol. Medium bodied with a bite at the mid-tongue. Nicely nuanced.

olsvammel (4339) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle at SBWF. It poured a hazy golden liquid with a small white head. Very malty flavour with cockies, biscuits, grapefruit and grass. Lots of flavour and an aggresive bitterness.

trevor211 (1467) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2010
On draft at Rattle N Hum in Manhattan. Pours a transparent orange. Lots of juicy citrus (especially mandarin) in this one, balancing nicely with very traditional caramel malts. Sessionable above all else... but lacking a bit of punch.

DuffMan (8167) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pours a hazy honey gold with a generous white, clingy head. Big aromas of tropical fruits and sweet juniper. Mouthwatering! Flavours of passionfruit, green mango, juniper give way eventually to sweet, slightly chewy toffee malts. Finish is bitter, but also a little spicy and tangy. What is it that elevates this beer among other west coast IPAs? Hard to put my finger on it, but this seems to strike a perfect balance for me between malt and hops with some beguiling character traits that win me over. Outstanding!

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2010
Sampel at SBWF 2010. Pours light amber with a bleached white head. Flavor is dominated by heavy overripe fruits and the malt tastes are fatty and oily. There is something in bitterness coming in the aftertaste that is disturbing though, but I just can’t put my finger on what it is.
