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.

Sampled in a 22oz. Pours pretty golden brown, clear and crisp. Some head. Drinks pretty smooth. Lots of hops, minimal malts. A pretty great brew. Good aftertaste.

12oz bottle. Cloudy amber pour. Excellent hop presence. Honestly I sucked this one down too fast to remember the details other than I liked it and it was hoppy.

NDbeerdrinker (166) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Pours a deep golden color with a nice short lingering white head. Aroma is floral and piney hops. Taste is sweet and syrupy up front but dies down with a great bitter hop finish. Piney flavor at the end really works for this beer. Really nice IPA.

CheersMate (1309) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Nice translucent orange color. Looks like an imperial/double. Very malty aroma. I wish this had a more hoppy aroma. The malty aroma dominates. Slight hop aroma, but again, the hops dominate. It is a pungent beer, just not the flavor that I was expecting. Nice palate, with a big hoppy flavor. I don’t like this hop. I don’t know which hop it is, but I know that I do not like this particular hop flavor. Very hoppy, but there is not a balance between the hops and the malts. I wish this had the imperial/double hop flavors, but it does not. Hop flavor is not to my liking, but not a horrible IPA, but I feel that it is overrated.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. Nice cloudy amber pour with a big white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, pine. Flavor much the same, extremely well balanced but with a big hop bite at the end. Very tasty.

lumpy38 (2) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2009 does not count
on tap at The Irish Pol in Philly....good solid IPA. Definitely get the pine and citrus but the hops in this one are fantastic. This one will keep me coming back.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 11, 2009
the only thing i dont like about this beer is the palate, everything else is great. it tastes exactly as an IPA should, some pine, some citrus, a lot of hops, a little malty, perfect, but just a little strong on the palate.

nickd717 (3480) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Bottle. Really nice IPA. Golden-amber color with a white head. Aroma is floral hops. Flavor is sweet caramel malt and grapefruity hoppiness, very well-balanced. Hop oils linger on the palate. Really smooth.
