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.

yespr (31480) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 21, 2008
22 fl oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a nicely lacing and light off-white head. Peach and grapefruit hops aroma, very inviting and fresh. Flavour starts light sweet caramelish, goes into light malt note before a nice set of light peach, pineapple and distinct grapefruit flavour appear in the finish. Shows a light wooden note and solid dryness into the finish and beyond. Nice.

omhper (19667) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2004
Bottled, thanks marbles! Dark amber, small head. Grapefruit aroma. Dry with soft mouthfee. All dominated by grapefruity hops, butwith enough malt to back it up. There are more hop aroma than bitterness, but still there is a real kick of late bitterness. Really good stuff!

7.0% Bottle. Hazy amber beer, light frothy white head. Light caramel nose. Semi soft palate. Even malt with a trace of caramel. Nice base for well judged marmalade hops that never get too bitter. Well balanced beer that finishes just dry enough. Could drink a lot of this.

Bottle at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Amber color; creamy generous head. Good ipa, with caramel and toffee flavor, and partially aromatic hop, and of course strong bitterness; also lightly fruity flavor and light earthy/manure aroma; the bitterness is getting lightly astringent at the end. Quite good.
