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.

Bomber. Pours a crystal clear amber with one finger white head. Nose is citrus and floral hops. Palate is tangerine, grapefruit rind and caramel malt background, with a nice resin bite in the finish. Tastes like an IIPA - big hoppy taste. Medium mouth feel and nice lacing. Good stuff.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Tasted at Ballast Point brewery and homebrew shop in San Diego, CA--Light copper orange body with a wispy, swirly white head. Fruity and spicy hops profile in nose. Tangy, spicy, Centennial and Columbus hops. Clean, stinging, bitter finish. Great representation of WC/SD-style IPA.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2008
Dark orange-golden with a huge, nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of citrus, papaya and mango. The flavour has a light and pleasant sweetness, notes of citrus, oranges, caramel and a nice, light grassy bitterness. In no way extreme - but incredibly charming and nice, I really like this one.

brewandbbq (269) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Pours dark copper and clear, no chill haze. A white head developed to a peak of a quater inch, and retreated fairly quick to reveal some light lacework and whisps on the surface. Aromatics are filled with citrusy and tropical fruits. Tangerine, peach, and grapefruit atop a crisp, light malt accent. The nose continues with pear skins and pine resin. Mouthfeel is crisp and snappy, with lingering bitterness. The pallet is juicy and hoppy with a mild alcohol note. Citrus fruits with marmalade and grape jam fill the lupulin bill, with a drying, crisp, refreshing quality. Finishes with a smooth, lingering bitterness and additional hop resin. While the aromatics or flavors of the hopping arent blastingly pungent, Big eye gets high marks for drinkability.

pforei (338) - USA - APR 25, 2008
Clear amber with good sized egg shell head. Lacings left around the glass. Hoppy aroma of pine and some citrus and perfume. Caramel malt apparent upon tasting. But the centennial hops are the standout. Very sweet. Medium bodied with bitter astringent finish. Straightforward. Could use more variety in the selection of hops and malt.

12oz. brown bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a clear dark gold with a thin fine bubbled white head. Fruity/piney hop aroma with some berry. Aggressive hop bitterness balanced with plenty of malt. Some caramel. Long dry hoppy finish. A really solid IPA.
