look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured in a pint glass from 12oz bottle

Appearance: Golden brown, almost orange in the light. Very thing head remains after the pour.

Smell: Floral hops and a slight citrus hop in the background

Taste: Very mild and sweet malt on the tongue, of biscuit and caramel. Light bitterness on the tongue but after swallowing the bitterness lingers, very pleasantly. Almost a little too weak and watery for my taste. Carbonation is just right and the hop flavor is suttle, but well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Lacking what I was looking for, I had this on tap in Milwaukee and remembered more body and the desire to finish my pint quickly! This didn't have the same affect, very thin with a watered-down mix.

Not a bad IPA, from my opinion it was much better on tap. Definitely a good beer to have around and for the price at my local craft brew shop I don't regret grabbing this one.

I enjoy the hoppy brews ... so this evening I cracked open this BIG EYE P A (part of a personal 6-pk from Total Wine).

Refreshing taste ... slightly fruity. Sweet aroma. Very smooth, not overpowering with the hops. Less bitter than I expected. Thumbs up.

12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date 12/04/2013 printed on the bottleneck. Finally getting around to trying this staple beer from Lakefront Brewery, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a murky burnt sienna orange with a finger and a half of fluffy khaki head. Nice head retention, and thin strands of scattered lacing. Looks pretty nice.

S - Smell is nice - caramel malt breadiness, green apple, fruity yeast must, light spruce / pine / grapefruit / herbal hoppiness, earthy and twiggy, with some tea leaf like sweetness.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready caramel malt, green apple, musty earthy yeast, herbal & piney, grapefruit bitterness, and some twiggy tea leaf sweetness.

M - Feel is crisp and clean, with lingering caramel malt, and green apple stickiness. Mildly resinous hop presence.

Overall, a solid drinking, easy going IPA with a moderate 6.60% abv, although it lies firmly within the realm of the typical IPA. Glad to have tried it, but there isn't much here to set it apart from the rest of the pack. Still, I would have it again.
