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.

Like the bottle so I picked it up. Pours out a clear light copper color with a small to moderate white head. Aroma of citrus and some sweet malts. Flavor is nicely balanced, pine and citrus hop come through with some nicely balanced malts. Very drinkable, and rather solid, even better that I can now find it at a store within walking distance.

Grovlam (4257) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2008
Bottle. Quit large creamy like off-white and very lasting head. Good display of lacework. Somewhat clear amber color. Aroma of lovely grapefruit, pine, citrus, floral notes as well. Over the palace came mild fruity and malty notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor with light sweetness. Dry and floral grapy like lingering finish. Very nice IPA.

Nice aroma of hops and hops and hops. Nice mouthfeel and flavor, with that awesome finish of grapefruit pulp. Very smooth and drinkable.

Big nose of american hops, hence the huge aroma of lemon, and grapefruit, with some pine in there. Flavour is dominated by the hops, not much of a malt base in here, just a hop monster of an IPA.

hayduke (5730) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 4, 2008
From a 22 oz bottle, this poured a slightly cloudy orange to amber with a light yellow head and good lacing rings. Nose of citrus hops, and light malts. Very smooth and slick mouthfeel. Flavor is strongly of floral and citrus hops, and there is long nicely bitter finish. An excellent IPA;

Indra (2710) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUN 3, 2008
12oz. bottle. Hoppy, fruity aroma, citric and fresh with notes of grapefruit, pineapple and a bit of toasted caramel maltiness as counterpoint. Clear deep golden color with a lasting, fine, white head. Flavor is very hop-oriented, these contributing a good deal of resinous, juicy citrus and sharp bitterness throughout, but again seeing a touch of toasted, honeyish malt here and there to provide sweetness and balance. Finishes dry and clean, with a lingering bitter hop tang. Mouthfeel is oily, sharp and moderately effervescent, body is medium. A sure bet to satisfy one’s hop fix. Single-hopped with Centennial, I understand.

22 oz bomber from Spirits RB. Pours a slghtly hazy orangey amber with a large frothy white head. Aroma has a good touch of malty sweetness up front, toffee, caramel and syrup blended in with some citrusy hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation that is nice and refreshing. Flavor is actually better then the aroma with a good balance from the caramel malts with the citrus hops making a nice appearance towards the end and finishes rather bitter.Sampled this with some friends and even though this was the first bottle we opened it was one of the best of the night.

Bottle. [thank you, ChristianScheffel, hope it’s okay I drank it]
Pours clear orange with a big, creamy, lightly offwhite head. Aroma is exqusite hoppiness, apricot, grapefruit, pine and a little caramel behind it. Fine, lightly fat, and lightly crisp mouthfeel. Flavour is a little underwhelming, a bit fruity sweet at first, lots of fruity hops, dominated by grapefruit and pine. Very dry and hoppy finish.

I do not know what it is, but there is wacked about this beer…one dimensional, sweet hop flavoring, somewhat carbonated, over toasted in some parts, just not that good for my palate.
