4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Mendocino Eye of the Hawk has a thin, cream-colored head, a murky, copper appearance, strong bubble streams, and very little lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, rich, sweet, spiced bread, and dark bread crust. Taste is of sugar, caramel, dark bread crust, light fruits (dates or figs), some bitterness, and noticeable alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Mendocino Eye of the Hawk finishes wet, sweet, and heavy. RJT

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor are heavy on the sweet malts, cookies, some light floral and earthy hops but not enough to balance the sweetness. Would not have guessed 8% due to the sweetness and thin body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty tasty beverage. Pours a hazy orange with sediment. Aromas are fruit and wet dog. Flavors are smooth for the high abv. Fruity and a bit hoppy. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Taste-ickles. Another "select" ale from Mendocino and a good one at that. Burnt Werther’s colour with an off white head. Big vanilla cookie, biscuit, brown sugar malt snooching up the nose as well as some light warming booze and background citrus. Very enjoyabeer, good price and nice meaty texture considering she ain’t that dark.

Love the texture and rich caramel and hoppy flavor. Smooth taste but it has a mouth feel that gives you something to chew on.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Pretty bland aroma and flavor, alcohol, fruit, sweet malts, bread and toffee. Kind of messy and unenjoyable.
