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.

From a 355ml bottle on 15/6/2012. Pours a relatively clear dark golden with a biggish head. Has a lovely, big, hoppy aroma which includes caramel, toffee and citrus fruit. This is beautifully balanced flavour wise, with lots of caramel malt, orange, lemon, peach and masses of marmalade, followed by a big dose of dry, resiny, grapefruity hops. The texture is quite oily. A truly superb IPA.

Fantastic beer no doubt. Smells great, hoppy and smooth. Tastes a bit like the sea.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2017 Draft at Ballast Point. Hoppy, but with more malt backbone. Hints of caramel like a Vienna lager. Hops are piney and resinous, but a little overshadowed.

Love this beer, even more than their sculpin. Clear centenial hop, but moderately balanced. Pours amber gold in colour, highly floral. What you would expect from a big hop IPA

355ml can. Pours a hazy orange with a medium, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, peach, orange, grapefruit and light pine needles. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, peach, grapefruit, orange peel and pine needles with a dry, bitter grass finish. Medium to full body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Nice.
