Darn! These folks make some mighty fine IPA. As Big Eye is the little brother to the EXCEPTIONAL Sculpin.
A - Orange/Golden color with a small creamy head. A delicate lacing hangs on the edge of the glass like a jumper having second thoughts.
S - Malty sweet scent with slight pine notes.
T - Sweet malt with a bitter hoppy flavor and orange or apricot notes,
M - Surprisingly clean and refreshing for a brew with such malty profile.
O - Very good IPA, better than average, but one can't help but compare it to Sculpin which is one of the best IPA's going, so it takes a hit on that account--but it's a pretty good IPA on its on merits.
