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.

NJJereme (386) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a nice thick, off-white head, good lacing. Aromas of pine and lemon. Analogous flavors with an added layer of butterscotch and a warm touch of alcohol. Medium bodied with a bite at the mid-tongue. Nicely nuanced.

olsvammel (6857) - rebro, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle at SBWF. It poured a hazy golden liquid with a small white head. Very malty flavour with cockies, biscuits, grapefruit and grass. Lots of flavour and an aggresive bitterness.

trevor211 (1679) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2010
On draft at Rattle N Hum in Manhattan. Pours a transparent orange. Lots of juicy citrus (especially mandarin) in this one, balancing nicely with very traditional caramel malts. Sessionable above all else... but lacking a bit of punch.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pours a hazy honey gold with a generous white, clingy head. Big aromas of tropical fruits and sweet juniper. Mouthwatering! Flavours of passionfruit, green mango, juniper give way eventually to sweet, slightly chewy toffee malts. Finish is bitter, but also a little spicy and tangy. What is it that elevates this beer among other west coast IPAs? Hard to put my finger on it, but this seems to strike a perfect balance for me between malt and hops with some beguiling character traits that win me over. Outstanding!

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2010
Sampel at SBWF 2010. Pours light amber with a bleached white head. Flavor is dominated by heavy overripe fruits and the malt tastes are fatty and oily. There is something in bitterness coming in the aftertaste that is disturbing though, but I just cant put my finger on what it is.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Poured a light amber with a two-finger white head which dissipated into a lasting coating. Lacing was not heavy but present til the last sip. Nose was pine and citrus (lemon, grapefruit, orange). Taste was apricots, citrus (grapefruit, lemons, oranges), and caramel. You can notice the alcohol, but it is not unpleasant. This is a nicely balanced IPA for sure. Mouthfeel was medium, a bit oily but with a clean, dry, and mildly bitter hop bite in the finish. Carbonation is healthy, by observation and by feel. I was pleasantly surprised by this and will definitely have more - now and later.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Pours a deep golden yellow, nose is heavy with spicy and floral hops, taste is fairly bitter, not a lot of hop flavor, but a goof floral finish.

r464 (2350) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2010
An IPA full of floral, hoppy notes in the aroma and flavor. Muted hints of malt. Dry, but not overly strong. Could use a bit more balance of flavor, but very good for a hoppy, dry IPA.
