COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Big Eye IPA is a big hoppy brew, thanks to the abundance of American Columbus and Centennial varieties we use to flavor and dry hop. While the English originally added extra hops to preserve their beers for sea travel, we do it for the love of all that bold, intense flavor that makes India Pale Ale one of our favorite styles.

BlazerT (923) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 2, 2017
Bottle. Teku. Golden, medium hazy with big, moderate, off-white frothy head. After opening nice and moderate resinous and citrus accents with some tropical notes, which disappears quickly, only solid pale malty backbone. Taste is moderately to heavy bitter - stable and long, balanced with nice maltiness. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. finish is bitter, resinous and slightly malty. In overall solid IPA, the aroma should stay for some more time, after few whiles its gone.

GoufCustom (1870) - HONG KONG - FEB 19, 2017


355ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Looks: Clear amber colour; Half finger head with soapy off-white foam which fades in 40 seconds;Beautiful sticky lacing with active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Ale malt, with mango, strong passion fruits, apricots, strong candied fruits, orange, floral, sugar, strong spices, resins, biscuits, lemon and strong fresh grass.

Taste: Close to medium sweet Ale malt, with strong grapefruits, light mangoes, candied fruits, strong citrus peels, strong floral, molasses, strong spices, herbs, strong pine, resin ooze, dry biscuits, strong lime, very strong bitter hops and very sharp grass.

Body: Mid to full body; Slick, creamy and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Rich Ale maltyness in a thick background, very smooth. Strong sharp grapefruit hops dominates with mango, candied fruits, and citrus peels. Very flowery, nice medium sweetness. Lots of pine, resin ooze , spices and herbs. Biscuity with strong lime to round. Yes!

Hoppiness: Mango, passion fruits, apricots, candied fruits, orange, floral, spices, resins, lemon and fresh grass in nose. Strong grapefruits, light mangoes, candied fruits, strong citrus peels, floral, strong spices, herbs, strong pine, resin ooze, strong lime and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is very strong for a lasting. High astringent bitter-sweet herbal malty finish.

After taste: Quite dry. Limey, oozy and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is a West Coast IPA with good looks, rich maltyness and creamy to the tongue. Loads of dry hopped Centennial and Columbus push for a nice tropical aroma, and strong sharp oozy hoppy taste almost to the limit, yet the bitterness is still sharp and nice. A rollercoaster for tastebuds, this is great!

davidezdonz (425) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - FEB 6, 2017
A 12 fl oz bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 16327, meaning it was bottled on 22nd November 2016. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a clear copper colour with a big three finger off white head that had decent retention and eventually settled to a fluffy layer while leaving nice lacing. Aromas of pine, grapefruit zest and orange with touches of caramel malt. Tastes of bitter grapefruit zest, orange rind and pine balanced with some lightly sweet biscuit and caramel malt. Medium bodied with moderate to light carbonation. Overall a nice and balanced IPA that I wouldnt mind drinking more of.

colui72 (855) - HONG KONG - JAN 28, 2017
Pours clear amber, with a small cream head, no lacing, visible carbonation. Strong aroma of fruits and citrus. Taste has a balance of maltiness, with some biscuits and caramale, but its character is mostly hoppy, fruity amd bitter. Good, typical IPA.

From the can. Consumed on Christmas Day :) Pours dark amber, with a large, full-bodied head. Bitter, caramel hops, earthy and floral. A good traditional IPA. Reminiscent of English IPAs. But better.

mateuszk (2544) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 20, 2016
Bottle. Faint aroma of hops (dont know how old the bottle was), nice malty side, rather dry and really solid hoppy and bitter finish. Fresh bottle could be really great.
