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.

Honeyed toast and apricot in the aroma, with some mild apple and spice. Medium golden in color, filtered, the head quickly dissipating entirely. Flavor profile is sweet, lightly sugary, fruity and with a bit of a malt punch, along with some lighter herbal hop flavors. Low bitterness level, and just the merest hint of phenols can be detected. This is providing almost a Belgian character. Aftertaste shows a bit more hoppines, but the overall effect is provided via the malt. Puzzling, unique composition here. What is it??

Murph06 (121) - Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2003
Pours nicely, good fizz in a tall glass. Un-filtered bottle conditioned beers usually have more aroma than this. Some citrus (grapefruit?) aroma and taste. Hides the 8% ABV very well. Not bad, but don't know why they would call it a "Select" ale---not all that special.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2003
A golden color with a stark white head with nice lacing. An aroma of hops and grapefruit. Tastes of bitter hops, a touch sweet with some citrus. A light to medium body.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - APR 15, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2003 Pours a cloudy amber in color with a small creamy beige head. Nose is light and sweet. Start is light and sweet with a hint of apricot and the finish lightly hopped. Quaffable, but nothing special IMHO.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2003
Orange gold in color with a pretty decent white head. Smells like sweet citrus. Taste sweet maybe a hint of carmel. Has a very smooth palate though it looks very carbonated.

Light amber pour with a thin head. Alcohol is apparent in the aroma and flavor, but not overwhelmingly so. Sweet aftertaste, decent hops.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2003
Body is amber with minimal head but did hang around. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel. Flavour is extremely well balanced, both sweet but nicely hopped. Only complaint was that it seem a little carbonated as it went down. A great beer nonetherless.

Man, I can't believe that I haven't rated this beer. Probably 75% of the work that I've done on ratebeer has been with an Eye of the Hawk nearby. I'm an EotH junkie! Bold hop tastes with tangy lemon and zesty orange. Tastes like a lemon bar with a bit of butterscotch topping. The high ABV is hidden well. Ride the Hawk!

Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 27, 2003
Couldn't taste the alcohol through the heavy malty flavors. Nice deep amber coloring. Smelled thick and sweet. A good representative of a strong ale ... very mellow hops, the way it should be.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2003
Clear golden color with a tall off white head. Very light, buttery malt aroma. Starts lightly sweet and finishs quickly with a mild warming alcohol. Some flavors in the background include toffee and honey. The balance is to much to the alcohol side and distracts from the malt rather than enhance. A shade better than your average malt liquor.
