Big Eye IPA is a classic IPA with dominant citrus hop flavors. Ballast Point selected American Columbus and Centennial hops to achieve the sharp, fruity characteristics. This beer is versatile, but will pair especially well with seafood.
Ballast Point is one of the most acclaimed US craft breweries, but it started as a backroom operation at Home Brew Mart, a homebrewing supply store in San Diego. Jack White, owner of Home Brew Mart, and Yuseff Cherney, an avid homebrewer and teacher of a brewing course at UC San Diego, joined forces to establish Ballast Point in 1996.
Many of Ballast Point's flagship beers were created from homebrew recipes. These beers quickly captured the hearts of San Diego natives, which allowed Ballast Point to establish its second brewery in Scripps Ranch. From there, Ballast Point has experienced a rapid ascent into one of the most well known craft breweries in the world.
