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.

Appearance was clear reddish amber copper with creamy 2 finger diminishing head, slight lace. Aromas where slight sweet caramelly malts.Hops are bright floral grass pine and spice, yeasts are sublime. Palate was silky with creamy carbonation. Medium body with average length bite and no alcohol present in the smooth hoppy finish. Hopheads will enjoy...

This was the first Ballast Point beer I had back in 08 and it was impressive. The blend of hops is pungent but not overwhelming. Floral with a bit of juniper. Pours light amber.

12 oz bottle. Another well balanced and tasty ipa from Ballast Point. Pretty pour with a pillowy white layer of head, sticky lacing, and a dense, deep burnt orange body. The nose is big on mixed fruits and earth. Hazy caramel cookie, creamy bubblegum, melons, a pleasant mellow citrus and light peppery herb. Thick and chewy for a single ipa, but full of flavor, and heavy on the bitter. Nutty caramel and estery mixed fruit are prominent in the flavor. Again, some bubblegum-like sweetness, mixed bitter citrus, light pine, and more tropical citrus in the sticky finish. The total package may not be quite what Sculpin is, but definitely made from the same framework and quality.

Pours a dark gold with white head and nice lacing. Aroma of floral hops. Taste of floral and piney hops. The carbination makes the beer dance in the mouth. Very nice.

Pours a clear copper body with a thin, lasting white head. Lots of citrus - grapefuit specifically, peaches, grassy hops. A very dry finish. Very good.

Hazy amber color with a thin white head and a little bit of lacing. Aroma is of citrus hops with just a whiff of malt sweetness. Taste follows the nose with an aggressive grapefruit bitterness. Great drinkability.

Concentrated juicy citrus aroma with some grapefruit and hints of lemon. The malt smells dry and sweet. Tingly lemon/citrus with some grapefruit and that dry cake malt and then ending with a very nice and pleasing IPA bitterness. Definitely one of the best IPAs Ive ever had.

A - pours nice hazy amber with high off white head. Strong clinging lace. S - nice sweet tropical fruit, pineapple, and passion fruit. Pine, resin and grasses as well. Very sweet aroma, almost sweet tarts. M - medium bodied, average carb. Lingering bitter pine and citrus ending. T - bitter pine and citrus hops up front. Malts, tropical fruits, grasses on the palate. Lingering bitter hoppy ending. O - very good ipa. Bitter and hoppy, but the citrus and tropical fruit work well with it. 6+\7-

12oz bottle courtesy of cbkschubert. Pours a nice dark amber. Smells of resin and and fruit with hints of malt. Fairly bitter, but with enough sweet to balance it out. Body is light and well carbonated. I definitely liked this one. Makes me really excited that Ballast Point is coming to Texas and ever more excited to try Sculpin when it does.
