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.

Pours a crystal clear pale orange colour with a frothy off-white head that retains well and clings to the sides of hte glass. The nose is a brilliant bouquet of ripe citrus fruits, floral NW hops and pine. A rich caramel malt backbone is detectable in the aroma also. Upon first sip, you are hit bountiful malt sweetness, later finishing with pine-resin bitterness that lingers and fades towards caramel and honey sweetness. As it warms, potent and fresh hop flavous become increasingly prevalent, as opposed to hop bitterness. Malty flavours of vanilla and sweet turbino sugar evolve, too. The palate is syrupy and medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. This is a near-perfect IPA.

Bomber poured into a pint glass. Standard copper color with a nice tan head that sticks around forever. Some good lacing too. Candied pineapple aroma, along with a rather sugary maltiness. Tropical and alluring. Flavor is of resinous citrus hops that blend seamlessly with the caramel maltiness. Bitterness is kind of low, which keeps this on the sweet, wemi-cloying side. Body is chewy and sugary, with modest carbonation. Tastes and feels almost like a weak west coast barleywine overall.

After it was dumped into a pint glass the color was clear amber and it had a thick white head with laceing all along the sides of the glass. The nose is a very pungent pine and bitter hops. As you take your first sip the bitter hops atack your mouth followed by some smooth caramel and roasted malt. the flavor it self is very bitter and never gets mellow, the hop bitterness stays bitter right up to the last drop. Overall it is a great IPA and contains every thing an IPa should have.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2008
capones - on tap -- red gold in color. Mild fresh hop aroma, slightly piney. Sharp crisp hop flavor, but for me it finishes really dry. Good but not one of the best socal IPAs.

12 ounce bottle. This beer poured a beautiful amber color with a HUGE white frothy head that left great lacing on the side of my glass. The smell of fthis beer was excellent with a lot of citrus, apricot, hops, sweet malts, and pine. The aroma was probably this beers high point. I am definitely not saying that it tasted bad though. Tasted of citrus, a lot of malts, and had a great hop character. The only problem that I have with this brew is that it finished a bit bitter. Other than that, this was an awesome beer!

Christian (13339) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2008
Amber with a lasting white head, leaving a nice lace. Classic American IPA aroma - grapefruit, orange, pine and malty sweetness. Very bitter and filled with hop flavour. It has body and sweetness, but never gets cloying.
