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.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark orange and amber with a 2-finger beige and orange-tinged head. Aromas of pine, earth, caramel, and roasty cocoa. The flavor is bitter piney hops and mango flesh, sweet malt, bitter roasted cocca, and citrus peel and pepper in the finish. Good stuff. [688]

theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Pours nice copper color with light tan head and a little lace. Great hops in taste and aroma. An all around great IPA with an awesome dry, bitter hoppy flavor.

thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2011
Another solid IPA, some yeast sediment leftover in the beer, nice head retention, very bitter, high ABV but cannot detect, more bitter than anything else, nice if you like a bitter dry IPA with a good malt backbone.

GandGKevin (933) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2011
Bomber. Good hop aromas. Nice lacing and carbonation. Flavors of hops and hops. Even the burps are hops. Overall a very good IPA.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - APR 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice copper, nice off-white head and some nice lace. Big hoppy aroma--fresh, piney, herbal, and a hint of citric quality. The aroma is good, but not as fresh and sharp. It has some sort of date code stamped on the bottle neck, but I don’t know how to decipher it, so don’t know how old the bottle is. The malt stands out more in the flavor. Nice traditional British pale male profile. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall: a nice beer, but not a stand out among so many good IPAs in today’s market.

Scopey (11759) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2011
Bottle from CP&K. It pours golden yellow with thin fizzy white head and high carbonation. The nose is pine, resin, hay, orange, grapefruit and green grape. The taste is pine, grass, hay, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, and ginger, with a long bitter finish. Decent IPA, but the carbonation was a bit too harsh.

yog (4) - ENGLAND - APR 19, 2011 does not count
Fantastic beer out of nowhere. Beautiful light amber with thick head, mouthfeel is good. All kinds of stuff going on. Very hoppy IPA but well balanced by malt. Best of the batch of 4 US IPAs tonight. For sake of comparison, others were dogfish head 60, DFH 90, and Stone IPA.

mile (3753) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2011
Bottle. Light amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, grapefruit and piney hoppyness, faint caramel and fruitiness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, grapefruit and piney hoppyness, some caramel. Finish is average, malty and dryish, grapefruit and piney hoppyness, caramel. Dryish IPA, nice hoppyness - bit too malty body and too much caramel for me.

OmegaX (1372) - Florida, USA - APR 10, 2011
BREW FEST 2011! Poured a nice golden color with white head. Not bad at all with a taste/nose of citrus and pine. Good stuff. Reminds me of a simcoe.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2014 On tap at The Monk. Pours a golden yellow with a small, fluffy white head. Nose is filled with pine, wood and citrus zest. Taste is replicated with a big citrus bitterness at the end. Good ipa
