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.

Bottle (in NZ). Great big pillowy head head turns me on. A bready caramel malt nose with a delightful pine and citrus touch. Palate not overly bitter, but balance between the malt and hops is about right, the sweetness of the malt just dominating a touch. Just a solid goodie this.

A: The pour is a copper color with a fluffy white head and some mild lacing. S: Lots of citrus hops on the nose and not all that much else. A bit of pine and bread in the background. Quite a pungent aroma, actually. T: The flavor is less intense than the nose would let on, unfortunately. I still got the citrus and pine, but they were not quite as powerful. A bit of bread and sweetness, too. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation. The finish is mildly bitter. D: One of the first IPAs I had back when I got into beer, and to be honest, its a little better than I had remembered. Not my favorite by any means, but its still a good beer.

Bottle pours a hazy orange beer with a pillowy off-white head and some lacing. Scent is sweet, hoppy and some cut grass. Taste is hoppy with a dry light bitter finish. Very Nice!

Served from growler into a Samuel Smith imperial pint. Pours yellow-orange with an off-white two finger frothy head. Maintains nice lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of citrus and hops. The flavor was of malt and bitter hop. It was medium on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was not a bad IPA. It was not excessively hoppy but not under hoppy either. It was not my favorite IPA, but not my least favorite either. The drinkability on this one is great as well.

stimulus (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
A: Pours a deep amber with a nice white frothy head, leaving light lacing along the glass as I sip it. S: That familiar west-coast ipa scent of citrus and hops. T: Not too hoppy, solid balance between the hops and malts with good citrus notes as well as something else that I cant put my finger on. P: Very smooth with great carbonation.

A top quality IPA. High hops aroma and flavor. A much fuller flavor than the easier to find Yellowtail Pail Ale. Finish is long a bitter, but well balanced and serves to remind me to take another drink of the nectar. Excellent beer that is deserving of the awards that it has won over the years.

mansquito (6258) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Fairway in Brooklyn 6-pack ($14): Pours a clear copper body with a very formidable thick white head that stays around for a while and even required me to get it in two pours. Sharp hop aroma, coupled with citrus notes. A little bit of pine notes in there as well. Upon tasting it, the beer makes it very clear that it is a West Coast IPA. Very bitter and very hoppy! Aftertaste is certainly there. A few sweet toffee notes. Overall, a smooth beer with a hefty body and a ton of hops (maybe a few too many for me, or maybe it was the food that I ate previously that compromised it).
