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

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2005 Holy hell. Like an express train, shooting through the Seattle-esque underground bus tunnels that eventually lead somewheres of my mouth.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Cask at the Big Time.

Poured a dark and slightly cloudy amber, with the limited head one would expect from a hand-pulled ale. This is a rich, full, and multidimensional IPA, somewhat less citric and certainly drier and more floral than the Bhagwan’s Best - and well able to give that beer a run for the money. The palate is full and satisfying, especially considering the relatively low ABV, and the long hop finish is beautifully balanced. I’ve had this on tap at the Maple Leaf Grill as well; it does well at cellar temperature and picks up an extra flavor point from the cask. On the downside, the resins are a bit astringent in the flavor.

I may be in the minority but I liked this better than the Bhagwans. Hazy dark yellow. Faint orange sweet aroma. Up front hops and citrus flavour. Strong hops to the end. Juicy pink grapefruit burst between the the middle and the finish is very cool.

Light red with a nice lasting off white head. Aroma is hoppy with some pine and light citrus. A little light in flavour but nicely balanced. Typical bitter finish.

hazy orange with a dense white head. Citrus-pine sweet caramle aroma. Well-balanced but leaning towards the citrus-pine hops. The sweet caramel malts are more subdued. medium body. The finish is a tad rough.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Shimmering bronze with sticky waves of head & lacing. The aroma is citrusy with some crystal & astringency. The flavor has some wheat & fresh Columbus hops. Finishes earthy and dirty, not very refreshing.

Tap@Big Time. Liked it very much. Heavy bitterness, heaps of hops. Pine/grapefruit. Heavy and sweetish, a bit unbalanced, but i liked it OK.

dry hopped, hazy orange brown color, that carries a huge floral bitterness mouth and a dry hugely bitter finish. I prefer this to Bhagwan's.

(Cask) Coppery golden with attractive bountiful head. Peppery C-hop aroma. Good deep bitterness. Tandem centennial-amarillo assault on the palate, in a very good way. Very aromatic hop character. Fabulous. Sorry Josh, this is the Big Time IPA to rave about.
