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.

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Poured into a tulip glass with two fingers of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body. The aroma is metallic and grain. Not great. The taste is nice with a strong maltiness, which is nicely balanced by the lemon/grapefruit bitterness. The texture is crisp and smooth despite the boldness of the brew. Besides the smell, this is a great ale. Itís big but still quaffable, maybe to your detriment.

Looks good. Pours clear orange/amber, however it does the scent of a poor home brewed ale. And not surprisingly, it has a acetaldehyde after-taste. Hop presence lacking and syrupy malt mouthfeel. Not a particularly tasty strong ale. Would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Matt_Foran (92) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Pours a nice Amber/dark copper color. Aroma of sweet malts and faint hops. Taste is a mouthful of malts. Some floral notes from the hops. It's an ok strong ale.

bigericsports (35) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 11, 2015
From bottle to pint glass, pours a pale copper with almost no head. Sweet malty aroma, hint of blackcurrants and dark fruits, rounds out with strong yeast and spicy hops. Dry and moderate bitter finish.

penstemon (199) - Nevada, USA - APR 11, 2015
Pours clear orange-amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is lots of caramel, bread, vague soft fruitiness, cracker, and alcohol. Taste is bread, caramel, alcohol, yeast, a bit earthy, and medium bitterness. Medium body, finishes dry. Alcohol is a little harsh, not a lot of complexity.

TattooJack (280) - Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Looks good in the glass, smells really sweet. The taste is sweet and malty, then dry and strong. I think $11 for the six was a bit on the high side, but whatís a coupla two tree bucks if it gets you where you wanna go. I will put this into the new category of beer I just made up, micro-brew malt liquor. As long as I donít have a headache in the morning, Iíll consider this a solid purchase, but make it a buck or two cheaper so I can get a lottery ticket, and itís a "rock" solid purchase.

Dry, earthy hops. Burnt caramel up front. Frothy think mouth feel. It's decent but I won't revisit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber with a thin head. Aroma is malty with some fruity notes. Taste mirrors the smell. Nice mild bitterness with a dry finish. Alcohol is well masked. Overall a fairly decent offering. Not my favorite style but good.

Very dark fruit smell, sweet malty dark fruit taste, some hops in there that kinda brings it down a bit, interesting mix though
