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.

Kroney (255) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 24, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Big grapefruit/citrus nose... pours copper with very little head, that actually disappeared while Im writing this. Big carbonation bubbles. The grapefruit comes through bigtime on the first sip(and sticks around throughout)... not much balance or complexity with the hop combo, but somehow its still very drinkable. Good beer, and a good example of a San Diego style ipa.

Pretty smooth IPA, bit of some fruity hops with a simple aftertaste. One of the easier IPAs to drink, but is still refreshing -

PotjeBier (3218) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2017
From can in front of De Bierkoning (had this on tap once, in California in 2009, pre-RB). Clear deep golden color. Off white head. Aromas of caramel, dark malts, bitter hops. Bitterness is more upfront retronasal. Flavor is bitter, with dark malts in the background. Medium bodied. Long firm bitter finish. Now I need to re-retry with a fresh one.

RobBestwick (922) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2017
Bottle. Orange citrus and caramel aroma. Orange/bronze colour with a frothy off-white head and lacing. Medium bitter citrus hop flavour balanced with sweet malts. Medium body with not much carbonation. Long bitter finish. Solid IPA.

ccex (1288) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2017
12 oz can pours a clear copper/orange color with moderate white head of tiny bubbles which leaves some lacing. Aroma is full of citrus hops, pine resin and caramel. Taste is bitter with a brief appearance of sweet malts in the middle before a long dry finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. This is a solid, satisfying IPA Ill try again, although it didnt make me say WOW the way that my first Sculpin did.

macca147 (156) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2017
355ml can. Pours a copper amber with a thin beige head. Aroma: Citrus, pine, caramel, biscuity malt, toffee notes. Nice complex aroma; both malt and hops evident on the nose. Taste: Caramel/biscuity malt flavours followed by strong citrus flavours. Very hoppy. Lingering bitterness that dominates the aftertaste. Oily slick texture. Quite hoppy/bitter at the expense of having much flavour complexity. A nice IPA.

Fisler (527) - Bamberg, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2017
Vom Fass direkt im San Diego Tabroom - frischer gehts kaum. Optisch astreines Amber. In der Nase schne Grapefruit. Setzt sich leicht s im Trunk fort. Mittig malzig, hinten bitter. Ein IPA beim dem fr jeden was dabei ist.

Beerwithwings (86) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Can. Pours a lovely dark orange colour. To me it doesnt have a lot of flavour from hops. Nice beer but could be better

3.2
Darwenus (1113) - Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Cloudy orange, average foam and carbonation. The aroma is slightly dank and a little malty. Its big but well balanced. So is the flavor. Grapefruit and malt and floral hops. It isnt a bit bad, I could have it again, but Ballast Point has better IPAs and far better beers in other styles.

romanstep (546) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 17, 2017
W nosie średnio intensywnie, słodko, marmolada pomarańczowa, żywica, dojrzałe mango, karmel. Barwa bursztynowa, klarowne, ładna, biała, gęsta piana. W smaku rządzi żywica, pźniej trochę karmelu i słodkich cytrusw. Goryczka wysoka, żywiczna. IPA w klasycznym wydaniu, niezłe, ale nic nie urywa. Butelka do ... a kto to wie BE 586 lub 16306.
