Tap@Big Time. Pretty decent stuff. Aromatic hops all over the place, but good balance between malts. Piney, lemon/orange rind, bitter finish, this is great. Another reason to visit Seattle.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours cloudy orange with a nice off white head that exhibits excellent retention. Aroma is strongly citric hops and most resembles fresh squeezed orange juice in aroma. Flavor is freshly and sharply citric hops with some residual bitterness. Must be some malt in there somewhere, but its hiding out pretty well. Be glad to chug one of these again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Started off slightly tart, then a citrusy mouth feel with some cookie notes and then a rounded bitter finish. Good, but not up to the hype.

On tap at BiG Time Brewery. Dark golden in color. A faint aroma of citrus and hops. Almost creamy in texture with citrus notes and a strong hop bitterness in the finish. A quality beer.

Cloudy pale golden. Light apricot hop aroma. Thick and tongue coating breaky malt. Sweet and heavy on the tongue, hop flavor a bit muddled.

Cloudy orange copper color out of the bottle with a thick, rocky white head. Soft, orange citrus spice flavors over a sweet malt backbone. Very well balanced. This is a very good use of the hop's characteristics without just shovelling more hops into the beer.
