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.

I think it is even better than their Sculpin IPA, tasting it on tab on their Little Italy location is a nice add on. Not for casual beer drinkers though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

See through hazel in color with a thin tan head at top. Pleasant aroma with pine and a sweet smell to it as well. Tastes great but the palate is a little heavy and bitter. Still a great American IPA

HuskerTan (1566) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle. A- Pine, dank, grassy, orange, citrus. A- Burnt orange color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Pine, orange, strong bitterness. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Loads and loads of bitterness everywhere in this beer. Iíd almost consider this a DIPA. For a hophead this would be devine. For me, it was decent but not my favorite.

MetalNHopHead (1299) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Ballast Point puts hops in it and slaps a fish on it. Thatís all they have to do to make a tasty bottle of ale. Big Eye pours orange with a creamy head. Pine and grapefruit aromas with a touch of caramel malt. Big hoppy flavor with pine, grapefruit, orange, and mango. Thereís a fair amount of malty sweetness, but the balance definitely favors the hops. That just as it should be.

77ships (7440) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2016
355 ml. bottle @ Gollem. Clear orange golden, little white head. Nose is big chewy pine resin hop, very dank, big orange, such thick pine resin goop with some marmalade & orange peel sweetness in the back. Taste is great mix of first big pine resin goop, some bitter orange peel but massive pine resin goop candy balanced by Turkish delight sweetness, toffee, butterscotch, candied fruit, nice pleasant pine resin bitter finish. Thick chewy toffee & Turkish delight body. Works pretty well, very solid beer.

highibus (780) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Pours deep copper with nice off white head. Huge aroma of piney and floral hops. Hits with big hop bitterness up front with a nice smoothing from significant maltiness. Great balance. Grrat beer.

MrOrla (2131) - Odense C, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours golden with a white . Aroma of stale hops, caramel, earthy, citrus, toffe, pine, light grape. Taste is rather sweet, stale hops, loads of pine, good grape fruit notes. Dry and bitter finish. Shame its 5 months old.
