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.

I’ve had many bottles of this-- 12 oz and 22 oz, and I just had a 22 oz with lunch today-- and I like this IPA. Considering that I can get it many places (I live in Southern CA), and that a 22 oz bottle is just $3.99 at the place where I usually go, and it’s usually in-stock (as opposed to Pliny, which is not easy to get whenever you want it), there is a lot to like about this IPA. The finish, which strikes me as a little bitter, lingers longer than I would prefer, but otherwise this is a very fine example of a well-done west coast IPA. I have to wonder if they could improve the beer by incorporating something other than Centennial hops, but this is one of my go-to IPAs.

Nice IPA. Good hop aroma, columbus citrus and floral. Copper color really clear. Nice slim malt flavor to add to hop bitterness.

adster (388) - HUNGARY - SEP 28, 2014
Borostyán színe alatt mennyei trópusi gyümölcskehely, fagylalt pajkos édessége, színes élesztő, mályvacukor és lucerna aromái vegyülnek a borókás, gyantás alapokkal - egyszerűen átütő az aromája; azt mondanám, mindenki hagyja abba, amit csinál: megérkeztünk, ilyen egy valódi IPA. Az a fajta sör ez, aminek már az illata is a felsőbbrendűség érzetét árasztja magából; olyasmi, aminél nem szorul magyarázatra semmiféle dicsérő szó - a tökéletesség benyomását kelti. Ezek után mi mást is mondhatnék: az íze lenyűgöző, utánozhatatlannak tűnően mesteri. Hihetetlen harmóniában vannak az ízjegyek, kezdve a telt, malátás alapoktól a nyelvet körülölelő szénsavhálón át egészen a mézes-komlós, édeskés bájú és egyszerre haragos karakterig, mely komponensek elixírként olvadnak eggyé. Valóban ezt tartanám legnagyobb erényének, mert ugyan vannak sörök, melyeknél részletekben megtalálhatóak a siker ezen összetevői, amit viszont a Big Eye tud, arra kevesen képesek. Összetettségéhez már-már evőeszköz dukál: harapható a gabonák jelenléte; a kortyérzete zseniális, testes és izgalmas; a keserűség nem különül el, nem lesz szakaszos az ízvilág, a komló gyümölcsös játéka mintegy újabb ajtaját tárja ki az élmények tárházának, ezáltal téve fel a csúcsdíszt a csodás építményre.

Rangi (587) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 18, 2014
Great pungent hops on the nose full of over ripe piney aromas really thick flavour is big even more so than the aroma and combines with the taste to give a sharp refreshing bitterness up front that just lingers on at the back of the palate. Really like this because it’s bitter start to Finnish and has fantastic hop aroma and flavour.

From can. Marked 7% abv. Copper pour with some off white head. Nice carbonation. Grassy nose with some fruit. Taste is also grassy, nicely bitter with a strong, lingering finish. This is a near perfect representation of an IPA.

ordybill (101) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ. bottle into a pint glass, Aroma- I really enjoyed the hop and citrus feel coming off of this brew, Appearance- this IPA had a great dark orange color with a one inch white head. Taste- strong hop presence with a healthy dose of citrus and possibly a hint of caramel(?) Palate- a full slightly bitter finish that I really enjoyed Overall- one of my favorite IPA’s it is a fairly hard beer to find in Douglasville, GA but when I see it I often purchase of six pack of it.

Bottle. Pours clear bright copper with a tight white billowy head. Aroma is all pine and peach. Malt sweetness to start is quickly overtaken by RESIN with a lasting bitterness. Banging
