Ballast Point Big Eye IPA (beer review)

6.6% ABV. Poured into a dimple glass from a 12oz bottle. Appearance gave off a dark amber color. Smelled sweet floral hops. Tasted very smooth, citrusy, some caramel, and hoppy. Mouthability gave off a big foamy head, and was medium-bodied. Drinkability was a nice smooth malty character. I really liked this over the more popular Ballast Point Sculpin’ IPA. Commercial description: It is brewed with four malts for a deep golden color and to lend a malty counterpoint to the hops. Its full hop flavor is guaranteed to please the palate of the true hop head. Beeradvocate: A-/A-; Ratebeer: 100/100. Moneybeer: A.
