Ballast Point Brewing Company Big Eye IPA

Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.

Tonight’s featured beer is Ballast Point Brewing Company Big Eye IPA.

From the Ballast Point Brewing Company website: “The beer that helped put San Diego IPA’s on the map.
Our Big Eye IPA is a big hoppy brew, thanks to the abundance of American Columbus and Centennial varieties we use to flavor and dry hop. While the English originally added extra hops to preserve their beers for sea travel, we do it for the love of all that bold, intense flavor that makes India Pale Ale one of our favorite styles.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours golden amber with a large off-white head and great lacing.
Aroma: Grapefruit, citrus, floral and pine hop scents balanced well with sweet and biscuit malts.
Taste: Follows the nose with grapefruit and other citrus hop flavors up front, pine and floral hops next and finishes with a great blend of sweet malts.
Overall: Hoppy upfront with a malty finish, Ballast Point Brewing Company Big Eye IPA is one to try for fans of the style.  This 7% ABV offering is delicious.
