A- A nice reddish amber almost copper in color. Nice lacing through the entire glass. Poured a finger and half head and stayed nicely through the beer.
S-Hints of citrus and pine. Very great refreshing floral aroma.
T- Taste derives alot from the nose with flavors of grapefruit, orange, and piney finish. Not alot of booze but you know it there. Love the hop flavor in Big Eye. Dry Finish
M- Pretty thick for an IPA but not in a bad way. Leaves the mouth dry.
D-Have loved this IPA for awhile, one of my favorites. Its got the perfect bite I look for in an IPA

Golden light-orange color. Sudsy topper. Looks good. Could do without the frosted glass.
Pine, citrusy orange, apricot, and spicy floral notes. Lotta hoppy in the nose. Pale semi-sweet malty balance going on stung by a piquant alcohol odor.
Major pine, citrus, and spicy woodiness. A lot of bitterness, upfront, with a big malt punchiness. Excellently hoppy. A little bruising.
Mouthfeel is delightfully engaging. Carbonated well. Nice spiciness. Body has some crush to it. Points knocked for heavy heat.
Solid IPA. Not a typically West Coast, West Coast IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
