COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eye of the Hawk is an excellent, strong, rich bodied ale that is "Bottle Conditioned" to perfection. "Eye" is coppery reddish-amber in color and its unique taste is the result of a judicious mix of caramel and pale malted barley, balanced with Cluster, Cascade and Saaz hops. This gives the Eye its luxurious flavor, substantial mouth-feel and that slightly dry finish.

Bleh. Cidery, pale malt aroma. Quinine bitterness, somewhat acidic, a certain clear sweetness. Tonic water finish, over pale malt and a decent mouthfeel. Better as it warms up, but still off kilter. The Mendocino IPA is on deck, so I'm hoping for better. Apricot, lazy marketing label.

Good, malty yet citrusy aroma to start things off. Bronze colored pour with just a little bit of a white head and some beady lacing. Brisk flavor with faint hoppy citrusy notes with some maltiness in the backend to balance it out. Also detect some doughy, bready notes as well. Very smooth for a 8% ABV - did not realize it was this strong until I saw it listed here. Overall a decent strong ale - creeps up on you!

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2003
(Draught) I swear that they listed this as an IPA at the GBAF 2003 in Lake Harmony, PA? Anyhow - Pours a thin, white head and a golden body. Hoppy, cascaded nose and flavour. Bitter finish.

big head on just slightly hazy golden orange..fruity, creamy, sugary aroma..nice fruity flavors of mango, orange, apricot, and pineapple...a little hop bitterness rounding things out..this is indeed actually a pretty damn impressive brew, considering its Mendocino...pretty chewy...Impressed

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 13, 2003
Orange-gold hue with a light head and sweet malt aromas. Some nice malt chewiness, rich bready yeast character, with hints of toffee and caramel. Nicely balanced with an pronounced hop bitterness. Zesty hop finish. A rich and well-balanced strong ale.

rauchbier (3868) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Amber gold, poor head despite good condition. Sweetly malty with a distant hoppiness. Malty in the mouth with some alcohol apparent and a tingle of hops on the tongue. Sweet, yeasty and hop bitter in the finish.

Braudog (6582) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Malty aroma from an orange-yellow beer. This is a syrupy goo with characteristics of the high alcohol content. Not my bag.

Standard ale look with a gingerish aroma and a very strong malted flavour. Overall OK for a very strong ale.
