COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eye of the Hawk is an excellent, strong, rich bodied ale that is "Bottle Conditioned" to perfection. "Eye" is coppery reddish-amber in color and its unique taste is the result of a judicious mix of caramel and pale malted barley, balanced with Cluster, Cascade and Saaz hops. This gives the Eye its luxurious flavor, substantial mouth-feel and that slightly dry finish.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Light citrus hop aroma. Pours cloudy, orange-tinged. Flavour dominated by alcohol, also fruitiness - apricots. Above average, the alcohol could be better hidden.

Darker gold. Light head. Light flavours but a nice balance. Alcohol is subdued. Smooth with a malt edge.

drinkbeer (283) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Hazy golden, looks like a blond beer but a bit darker. Tastes full and yeasty. I like this refreshing brew. Smooth. Can't even taste the 8%.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Orange body with a quickly dissipating white head. No lacing.
Nice hop/malt balance in the aroma. Spicey and malty.
Balance follows through nicely in the taste. Sweet malt followed by a peppery hop bite. Alcohol becomes apparent.
Smooth body with a crisp finish.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - JUL 29, 2003
For a strong ale this stuff was very good. It had an iteresting color. The malts were very nice and chewy. The hops do wonders for the aroma as well.

Suttree (5407) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Burnt Orange, and a thin, almost nonexistant head. Caramel and smoke on the aroma, as well as first taste. Big Malt flavors dominate, followed by an earthy, peppary finish. No citrus of resiny flavors at all, and it is assertive and dry to the finish. I had drank this beer before, but I did not remember it being this complex. A very interesting ale.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Orange color with a quickly disappearing head. Slight malt scent. Sweet early, moving to bitter, and then caramel/buttery. Not a dull beer, just not very good.

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - JUL 3, 2003
Nice amber color with off white head. Good aroma that speaks of the hops to come. The balance of hops and malt is a nice combo, it seems that there is a lot of sugar in this beer because of the sweetness. A little bit of a bite on the finish. Very nice example of an American ale.

ClarkVV (4003) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 12, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2004 2003 bottle. Fruity smell, dark berries, blossomy floral aromas, very fragrant and fresh. Rust/Peachy-orange color. Clouded, which was nice to see. Bottle. Initial taste is a bit yeasty, pungent, somewhat sharp alcohol notes. Faint Bittersweet caramel notes on the back of the palate, that leave after the beer warms. Some orange blossom taste in the body. Medium full bodied. Some complexity comes out as beer warms. Good body, but bitter orange dominates a bit too much for my liking. Finishes with the same bitter floral/orange flavor. An improvement on the not as complex red tail ale.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 25, 2003
Poured a hazy amber color with a small white head that rapidly dissipated to a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Pleasant aroma, malty with fruit notes and a hint of hops. Somewhat diminished initially as the beer was colder than desired serving temperature, but became more assertive as it warmed. Rich malty flavor with a hop balance and slight citrus acidity. Alcohol is apparent but not overpowering. Long sweet finish ending slightly metallic. Medium-heavy body and mild carbonation giving a delightful mouthfeel.
