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.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Orange body with a quickly dissipating white head. No lacing.
Nice hop/malt balance in the aroma. Spicey and malty.
Balance follows through nicely in the taste. Sweet malt followed by a peppery hop bite. Alcohol becomes apparent.
Smooth body with a crisp finish.

For a strong ale this stuff was very good. It had an iteresting color. The malts were very nice and chewy. The hops do wonders for the aroma as well.

Suttree (6235) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Burnt Orange, and a thin, almost nonexistant head. Caramel and smoke on the aroma, as well as first taste. Big Malt flavors dominate, followed by an earthy, peppary finish. No citrus of resiny flavors at all, and it is assertive and dry to the finish. I had drank this beer before, but I did not remember it being this complex. A very interesting ale.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Orange color with a quickly disappearing head. Slight malt scent. Sweet early, moving to bitter, and then caramel/buttery. Not a dull beer, just not very good.

kyzr (1417) - Montana, USA - JUL 3, 2003
Nice amber color with off white head. Good aroma that speaks of the hops to come. The balance of hops and malt is a nice combo, it seems that there is a lot of sugar in this beer because of the sweetness. A little bit of a bite on the finish. Very nice example of an American ale.

ClarkVV (6218) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 12, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2004 2003 bottle. Fruity smell, dark berries, blossomy floral aromas, very fragrant and fresh. Rust/Peachy-orange color. Clouded, which was nice to see. Bottle. Initial taste is a bit yeasty, pungent, somewhat sharp alcohol notes. Faint Bittersweet caramel notes on the back of the palate, that leave after the beer warms. Some orange blossom taste in the body. Medium full bodied. Some complexity comes out as beer warms. Good body, but bitter orange dominates a bit too much for my liking. Finishes with the same bitter floral/orange flavor. An improvement on the not as complex red tail ale.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 25, 2003
Poured a hazy amber color with a small white head that rapidly dissipated to a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Pleasant aroma, malty with fruit notes and a hint of hops. Somewhat diminished initially as the beer was colder than desired serving temperature, but became more assertive as it warmed. Rich malty flavor with a hop balance and slight citrus acidity. Alcohol is apparent but not overpowering. Long sweet finish ending slightly metallic. Medium-heavy body and mild carbonation giving a delightful mouthfeel.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Amber color, thin quickly diminishing head. Very nice hop and malt aroma. Medium thin-bodied beer the hop bitterness stands out and takes over but this beer is best noted for a harsh alcohol flavor. Not a favorite but ok

Ernest (7520) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light amber, dense tiny/small particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with light notes of apple, DMS, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Sour, alcoholic, trying to be something interesting but not succeeding. Malt Liquor putting on airs.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 7, 2003
WEST COAST VERSION-Clear medium amber, with miniscule flakes; quickly fading loose head. Aroma of peaches, nectarine, bandaid/bubblegum and alcohol, with just a touch of wet cardboard. Slight cofee flavor, but light roast, not dark...sort of a tangy/tart "brown ale" taste but with more peppery complexity and prickly carbonation and some brown sugar flavors. Tart fruit and alcohol aftertaste. When I have tried this beer in the past I have noticed an out-of-balance alcohol/roasted malt flavor, but this particular bottle is doesn't suffer from that...seems it's improved! Daddy likes!
