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.

Bomber. Good hop aromas. Nice lacing and carbonation. Flavors of hops and hops. Even the burps are hops. Overall a very good IPA.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - APR 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice copper, nice off-white head and some nice lace. Big hoppy aroma--fresh, piney, herbal, and a hint of citric quality. The aroma is good, but not as fresh and sharp. It has some sort of date code stamped on the bottle neck, but I dont know how to decipher it, so dont know how old the bottle is. The malt stands out more in the flavor. Nice traditional British pale male profile. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall: a nice beer, but not a stand out among so many good IPAs in todays market.

Scopey (14229) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2011
Bottle from CP&K. It pours golden yellow with thin fizzy white head and high carbonation. The nose is pine, resin, hay, orange, grapefruit and green grape. The taste is pine, grass, hay, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, and ginger, with a long bitter finish. Decent IPA, but the carbonation was a bit too harsh.

Fantastic beer out of nowhere. Beautiful light amber with thick head, mouthfeel is good. All kinds of stuff going on. Very hoppy IPA but well balanced by malt. Best of the batch of 4 US IPAs tonight. For sake of comparison, others were dogfish head 60, DFH 90, and Stone IPA.

mile (3922) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2011
Bottle. Light amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, grapefruit and piney hoppyness, faint caramel and fruitiness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, grapefruit and piney hoppyness, some caramel. Finish is average, malty and dryish, grapefruit and piney hoppyness, caramel. Dryish IPA, nice hoppyness - bit too malty body and too much caramel for me.

OmegaX (1374) - Florida, USA - APR 10, 2011
BREW FEST 2011! Poured a nice golden color with white head. Not bad at all with a taste/nose of citrus and pine. Good stuff. Reminds me of a simcoe.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nrresundby, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
Bottle @ Cask Pub and Kitchen in London. Pours a hazy copper color with a small white head. Aroma is filled with fresh and juicy hops, with loads of grapefruit, along with a solid sweet malt back bone. The flavor is super hoppy with loads of grapefruit and juicy hops. I also get some of the sweet malts along with some faint tropical hoppy notes. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a really nice West Coast IPA!

Cask. Tan brown, thick head. Great piney hop smell. Syrupy and bready with a nice hop/malt balanced profile. Really good one from ballast point

Fred82 (2278) - Qubec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2011
Bomber from Julios. Enjoyed 3 weeks after purchase.
Appearance : Clear amber with a medium foamy and creamy head.
Aroma : Resinous and floral hops. A bit earthy. Lots of malt. Slightly citrusy.
Taste : Lots of malt with piny and resinous hops. Quite floral and herbal. Finish is rather bitter with nice malt and some citrusy/piny notes.
Overall : A different IPA. Interesting hop profile mixing citrusy and earthy. Very nice carbonation level. Very well made. Still not completely sure about the hop profile. Still not too sure about the age of this too...
