COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yet another of Big Time’s signature big, bold and assertive IPAs. Simcoe and Amarillo hops dominate this one. O.G. 16.8

jgb9348 (4626) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Hazy golden coloured body with a hint of some orange glows and a nice proper two centimetre tall white head. Aroma of nice citrusey and piney hops with a good malt nose and a little yeast as well. Medium-bodied; Fresh hop flavour with a good balance of malt and some sweetness from caster sugar on the tail end, but the hops end piney and a bit floral. Aftertaste shows a nice subtle hop flavour, but more malts are noticeable than from before. Overall, a solid IPA with less of a focus on the big hops, and more on the balance - which works well! I sampled this pint on draught, while shopping for more beer, at Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington for US$4.00 on 10-February-2013.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Cask at the brewpub, 6% ABV, 8-4-8-5-17=42
Hazy golden color, with typical cask head, frothy, very persistent. The aroma is less powerful but more delicate than in the draught one, with nice fruitiness, yellow stone fruits. The mouthfeel is greatly improved, being smooth, and allowing the toffee flavor and malt to shine completely; the hopping is strong and delicate at the same time, perfectly complementing the malts. Balanced final.
Lovely.

Draught at the brewpub, 6% ABV, 8-4-7-5-16=40
Cloudy golden to light amber color; creamy head. Lovely aroma of fruity hops, citrusy. The body is lean, it has a very good toffee flavor, the hopping is perfect, powerful but not oppressive, with plenty of hop resins and bitter orange character.
Fresh and excellent.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Draft @ brewpub. Nice hazy unfiltered look. Warm orange gold. Scattered lace . Aroma has a rustic character with lots of nutty fresh malts that are earthy and blend well with the earthy hops, which are never overpowering. Orange peel. Almost has a continental hop feel...Crisp bracing bitter finish but overall a balanced beer. not sticky at all. Good IPA

On tap at Brouwer’s for Hopfest, pours a golden copper with a small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, piney hops and resin. Flavour of citrus hops, pine, pot, dry zesty fruits and orange peel. Dry, lightly bitter and fruity. Great.

pantanap (3350) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2011
growler from bvc for the 2011 summer growler swap. thanks man... a hazy lighter shade of apple cider pour that yields a moderate creamy soapy white head that quickly dissipates leaving a thin milky white film across the top... aroma is citrusy orange tinged hop notes upfront with a mild grassiness to back things up. a touch of raw cattiness also emits. nothing earth shattering, just resembling a solid ipa and true to style... flavors add a dimension of tea and earth to go alongside the citrus and grass hop focus. semi-sweet through the middle as well as prolonging towards the finish where a light to medium level of bitterness surfaces. medium bodied, perhaps just a touch bit more. stands up on its own as an above average and serviceable ipa. worth trying to say the least.

Wombata (365) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 17, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Aroma: Orange and mango. Flavor: Grassy, dried orange peel. Finishes with an intense and long lasting bitterness and grassy, resinous hop. Comment: Smooth, good medium to full bodied mouth feel. Bigger than Bhagwan’s IPA.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Dirty amber, thick and heavy, moderate white head, foamy, spotty lacing.   Raw musty hop nose.   Very slight pine.   On the tongue it really comes across as a really musty funky dank IPA.   This must be what its like to wring the juice straight from the hop.   This is like uncut cocaine.  This seems to be as true as true gets.   Simple, hoppy, and what it means to be an IPA.   Full bodied hop juice.   I think of all the beers that call themselves an IPA and how this one would crush them.   Could be a little bit more refined, but when you get punched in the face does it matter what happens afterwards?
