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.

Very nice foral and citrus and mango aroma that pours out clear amber. Large white head with loads of lacing that really lasts. Very smooth with distinct hop and malt flavor that hints of honey. Medium mouthfeel and mild hop bite aftertaste. I really enjoyed this IPA. I personally think it should be rated higher than the overall average. If you enjoy hops and a clean easy drinking smooth brew this one just might be the ticket.

floydian1 (1089) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 28, 2015
355ml bottle from BWS. Hazy dark amber with a stable dense white head and lace rings. Hoppy aromas with pine, oily resin and orangey citrus to the fore above a biscuity malt bill. Palate is hoppy and bitter with a decent length that satisfies. A fine American style IPA.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a hazy orange with a creamy white head and leaving some nice lacing. On the nose the resinous characters dominate with slight citrus, melon and honey. In the mouth it has a light body accompanied with low carbonation. Taste is bitter and dry with a crisp finish with lots of woody and citrus notes. The big eye wasn't as approachable as the sculpin but was still a bloody solid beer. Loved it

Hopmaestro (259) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2015
With a smell from mild pine, passionfruits, and citrus I knew from the get go that this one would rock. Taste is beautiful with a steady backbone of medium malts that lures out the floral and bitter taste that we all love.

AndresTM (329) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 11, 2015
Great nose, very green and fresh and pungent. Green mangoes, fresh-cut grass, a bit of pine, a bit of grapefruit, a hint of pepper and earthy spices, and some grain make a really deep and satisfying first impression. The mouthfeel is medium, with a slightly oily body and moderate carbonation. The taste is primarily bitter, at first deploying the greener, fruitier flavors (mango peel, grass), which lead to a very dry, fairly lasting finish that evokes earthy minerals. A mild orangey tartness/sweetness also lingers. Not as compelling under the palate as to the nose, but great.

FknClownshoes (24) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2015
pours a hazy apricot orange colour, thick creamy head with excellent retention. smells like pine needles and citrus peel and a hint of nuts. Tastes amazing, big on hop flavour and bitterness. Great example of a west coast IPA, bold and hopped to the max, but bought under control with some nutty caramel malts. Overall a very good beer.
