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.

Bronze in color with a nice head. Citrus, lemon, malty, floral aroma. Very balanced flavor. Citrus, floral, pine, grapefruit, light lemon, and some caramel. Medium bodied. Thoroughly refreshing. THis is a mighty fine IPA.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle at the Padres game. Pours a deep gold. Nose is floral hops. Taste is full of pale malt with a good hop backing. A little backwards then most ipas but a cool change. Mouth is chewy with a mild bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2009 22 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of peach, pineapple, grapefruit, and pine. Every bit as good as I had remembered; big bitter grapefruit hop flavor. Just outstanding. You dont typically find flavor this big in a single IPA. At 6% you get most of the big hop flavor of a DIPA without the high alcohol. This is, to date, my favorite IPA.

dogfish120love (1305) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Orange with a dense snow white head. Sweet caramel mildly hoppy and underwhelming. I hope the tap lines where dirty other wise I really couldnt see buying this again

guzzler67 (1684) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2009
Clear copper appearance with a fairly large, creamy, beige head and good lacing. Sharp citrus hop aroma almost overwhelmes a mild, sweet malt underpinning. Taste developes more citrus fruit flavors with some floral notes in the aftertaste. Decent malt backbone adds balance. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel and a dry, bitter finish. Really do like this one.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 rating 300. On tap at the San Diego Beer Party. Wow this is great! A fantasticly balanced IPA. Not too heavy and not overly hoppy, but still with a fair bite. I ended up having a few pints of this, rather than get in to some of the other beers available. Up there with the green flash as best IPA imho

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2009
Bottle Pours a hazy golden with a huge off white frothy head. The head seems to diminish rather quickly. The aroma is citrus hops, and some orange peel. The aroma is pleasing while I wait for the head to disapate. Has a good carbination. A fairly good mouthfeel. The flavor is hoppy with a touch of fruity sweetness. A little differnt but good. Has a light body and a watery ot oily texture. Has a pretty good finish. Not as bitter as many but still pleasing.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2009
Glorious dark copper color with thin micro-bubble head that retains well. Nose is sharp/prickly citrus, maybe orange peel or tangerine. Enticing nose for sure. On the palate is a notable (pleasant) black Darjeeling Tea taste from the malt sweetness with an ESB-like quality to the ale. This is very clean, refreshing, with most of the hop character towards the end. Creamy characteristic across the palate. The nice head probably enhances this (good foam onto the palate at first, especially). More body than expected. Finish is firm and somewhat dry with a smooth chalky, tea-like sweetness with hop dryness. Very satisfying! One of my favorite and more unique IPAs. Worth seeking out!

Blaketj80 (78) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 20, 2009
Pours golden amber with little head. Smells of astrigent hops. Not bad, but undesirable aroma. Tastes like nose and is hoppy and decent, but not great. Probably wont buy again.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2009
Bottle - piney, resiney, fruity. Nice sweet and bitter balance. Citrus, grapefruit-like flavors. Very nice presentation with light-head and reddish color. Above-average IPA.
