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.

Brown color, small head. Nice malty aroma. Very malty with a lot of malt sweetness. Rich taste, hoppy, very little aftertaste.

Clear, pale copper. Nose of sweet,rich malt. Thin head and lace. Almost thick bodied, chewy caramel like malt,bready, assertive but balanced hopping. A damn tasty brew. Im a sucker for malty brews.

Sweetness balances the hop bitterness.very drinkable for an ale thats 8%.Slightly sweet finish. It’s what Belgian ale drinkers drink when they can’t afford Belgian ale.

Fairly sweet and well-hopped. The alcohol is hard to notice. You can taste the Cascade hops. OK.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 4, 2002
Orange, copper-golden hue. Off-white head dissipated rather quick. Pale malt nose. Medium-full bodied palate. Like they say, substantial mouthfeel. Woody notes, raisons, molasses then some quick bitter hops and lingering fruity/malty finish. Alcohol is masked extremely well. A very well balanced beer. Yet, some 6-packs have some bad ones here or there.

Better than the last, though nothing spectacular. Has a reddish/amber type flavor to it, but can’t seem to make up it’s mind. Pale or amber?

Re-Rate 08/06/02: Pours a nice amber color, did notice some ’Little Fernies’ floating around, the head is creamy beige and adequate as is the lace. Nose is malt, sweet, a bit buttery. Front is a sweet malt, the top is light, the finish is mildly acidic, a tad dry, nicely hopped and a decent drinking beer. Ranks #701 on my current 1000 master beer list.

under-rated!!!!! very malty - but not too sweat, robust, moderately thick, relatively light hoping for strength. complex flavors - hard to nail down - a bit of a nutty / woody note. hint of molasses doesn’t taste like 8%. this is a lot like a good amber on steroids. an exceptional beer - surprised it’s not rated higher.
