Pours clear with a half inch of white foam. Retention was average at best with juicy lacing that mostly sinks back to level.
Aroma seems to have lost the hops but bread and sweet malts come through.
Taste follows what I found on the nose with a chunk of bitterness in the finish.
Medium body with medium carbonation.
The beer doesn't seem that fresh and it sort of took my thunder out of the review. Enjoy!

One fine body…
If you have fallen for the IPA style like we have, Big Eye will be a welcome addition to your repertoire. You’ll revel in Big Eye’s bitter, hoppy flavor thanks to the American Columbus and Centennial hops that are used to flavor and dry hop our flagship IPA.
We thank our hops every day that the English loved their bitters—or else the IPA style may not have been born to help the beer survive the journey from Cape Hope to India back in the 18th century.
