COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s come to be known as our fifth regular beer. A little bit bolder than the Bhagwan, with a greater depth of hop character through extensive first wort hopping. It’s got all the C hops stuff that we love, just more. O.G. 16.5, 6.4% ABV

This is pretty tasty. Orangeish in color. Very hoppy up front with a bit more balance later, but a super-dry finish. Better than bhagwan’s. Actually quite similar to Sierra Nevada torpedo in my opinion.

On tap at Big Time. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is nice and sweet citrus fruits, it reminds me of juicy fruit gum, but with hops mixed in. Medium bitterness, lightly sweet, medium body, with a bitter finish.

On tap, at some little pub in Seattle. Dark red/orange. Just dripping with hops; pine cone, caramel, hop oils. Medium bitterness, medium sweetness. Tasty stuff.

HonkeyBra (3675) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2010
I was told this was the hoppiest beer at Big Time. Aroma was better than a typical brewpub ipa. Strong hops, mostly leafy and minty, but a bit of citrus as well. Flavor is bitter. Nice. Big hop component balanced by a nice toffee/caramel. Mouthfeel isn’t quite watery but it was bordering on watery. It’s good, nothing too special, but I’d have it again.

Apricot color with lacing. Smells like peaches and pears. wow! hoppy. mouth-drying, then salivary glands kick in. Rose petal and alfalfa taste.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 29, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours deep dark gold with a white head. Has a citrus flavor of grapefruit and also a very hoppy floral aroma. The best thing about the beer is its intense bitter drying finish. This is a great brewpub IPA.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Hazy amber, a little dirty, moderate to large batter like head, off-white, very nice lacing.   Very soft hop nose, a little muted.   A little dank in fact.   On the tongue it is more flavorful than the nose suggests.   Wonderful bitterness, balanced with.   A nice malty sweetness.   Resiny without the acidity, which I like.   Lingers for quite a while after the finish.   This is one of my local favorites, especially on cask.   Decent body, almost creamy mouthfeel.   Had it been on cask it would be a different story.   Good solid IPA.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Faint aroma of hops, light grapefruit, and a hint of caramel malts. Poured orange/amber in color with a medium to large sized, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium bitter and lightly sweet. Tastes of hops, light caramel malts, light Earth, slight grapefruit and a hint of resin. Medium body. Tingly, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Hoppy, light resin finish is lightly dry.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours a nice golden orange with a thin off white head. Nice earthy hop profile, medium malt backing. Pretty nice IPA.
