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.

Good beer. This beer was a nice pale red tent in color. The aroma was nice and light. The taste was malty with hop spice.

Deep golden-amber color. Big frothy head out of the bottle. Pleasant sweet-spice aromas. Flavor is a good mix of complex spice-citrus-floral malts and even more complex hop profile. Bitter end, with a little sweetness too. More stickiness on the backside.

Braden99 (29) - Camarillo, California, USA - OCT 13, 2011
All of Ballast Points beers are good - but their Big Eye IPA is great! Fully loaded with hops, while a great blend of malts takes just a bit of the edge off and gives this beer a great balance.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2013 Update: Now available in Minnesota, I think this may be my backup go-to beer (behind Surly Furious). Very delicious! OLD: Cask at the gingerman (Oct 2011). Big piney hops. Light citrus, bread, tart, rye. Yummy

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2011
22oz. Pours a nice deeper golden color, big centennial hop nose right off the bat, and being the only hop used in this one it shines. Racy spicy notes on the nose as well. Palate is decently balanced, big hop finish balanced off with some deeper caramel malts. Not a bitter finish at all, decently pleasent. I had it decently fresh, but I can imagine this better the fresher.

p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2011
taster at brewery. Looks copper with small white head. Smells of some flowers and citrus. Tastes of strong bitterness rounded by citrus and pale malts. Definitely some spicy bitterness. Overall 8 of 10.

On bottle at l&Whiskymssan Pours golden with low head. Light and fresh aromas of citrusy fruits. Also a bready maltiness to the aroma. Fully hopped taste with a bitter ending full of rich malts.

Goodgrief (2017) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 23, 2011
On tap. Amber pour, clear a small head. Floral aroma and hop profile with some melon and citrus notes...but a lot of caramel malt. Good, but nothing special (kind of like Sculpin, imo).
