355 ml bottle, from Fakta Hirtshals. BB date is hard to read, but probably 25.03.2014. Slightly hazy deep golden to amber colour, moderate to low head, slightly off-white. Strong and unpleasant aroma of stale orange marmalade and rotting fruits and vegetables. Distinctly hoppy and resinous flavour, better than the aroma, not too sweet, with a solid bitterness in the finish.

This beer changed my palate! I was drinking a lot of Sculpin and maltier IPAs and then this...that dank, garlicky, something different.

Yes, Big Eye brings big IPA flavor to the table and is bold and different. If you like IPAs try this one. It’s got a big dark malt backbone but then citrus and danky, earthy hop bittnerness battles against that malt and...yeah. I get excited about this one but to me it’s a late night beer..even a sort of winter IPA.

Best Ballast Point brew in my opinion. Would take this over Sculpin any day.
