Building on a classic English style and adding some uniquely Northwest touches, Bhagwan's Best has developed fiercely loyal following wherever it is served. Bursting with local hop flavor, bitterness, and aroma, it is a particular treat when served dry-hopped and cask-conditioned on Big Time's beer engine. O.G. 16 Plato (1.064), alcohol is approximately 5% by weight.

Tap @ Big Time. Hazy, oarnage-gold pour with a white head which fades quickly to leave a coarse lace. Toast and pine nose. Medium body with pine, grapefruit and light toast flavors. Very pleasant, nicely balanced with a solid mouth feel. Not the hop-forward IPA typical of the Left Coast, but a good example of the more common American IPA.

Draft at brewpub. PAle gold, creamy off-white head. Creamy orange-citrus body, sweet hops, a little caramel sweetness at finish. Bit of a tart malty body. Creamy beer, perfectly fine but not too exciting.

mcberko (14665) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Big Time, pours a hazy golden dark orange with a small white head. Aroma is very gentle, with English hops and light bready malt. Flavour is on the sweeter side but still balanced, with caramel malt, bready English malt and a very mild hoppiness. Not my type of IPA but itís well constructed for what it is.

Draft pour at the brewery. Pours a copper color with a very mild malt citrus aroma. Bitter hops on the flavor. This is a good IPA, but the flavor is pretty mild to me. Kind of an empty finish as well. What I do taste is all good, but Iím left wanting a little more. Overall this is a good beer though, very drinkable. Smooth flavor. Good stuff.

Draft at big time. My 3rd attempt to rate this. Clear amber pour. Citrus (lemon), toast, sweat, even some bubblegum. Lightly sweet, no caramel, bitter finish. Pretty okay.

Rating the cask version, which is a lot better than the standard. Super hazy orange color with a thick long lasting head. Well done appearance for a cask. Very fresh bouquet of C hops with the yeast and malts of a British IPA (tea, biscuit). As is often for their beers its like London but with fresh American hops.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Draught @ Brouwerís Cafť:   Orange in color, faint haze, thin to moderate foamy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Soft somewhat of a sweet hoppy aroma, not too strong, citrus oriented.   Smooth on the tongue, flavorful without being overly bitter.   Could stand to be a bit brighter, but at least its very smooth and clean.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Hoppy finish, light to moderate bitterness, a little citrus peel.   Good overall, but could stand to be a little brighter.

The expectation that this IPA is going to be bitter will not disappoint, bitter from first taste to the last. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
