On tap at Big Time, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out spicy hops, rye, some orange fruitiness, and biscuity malt. Flavour is clean and balanced, with notes of oranges and other citrus and tropical fruitiness, along with lightly spicy hops. Well-balanced and easy to drink. Very good stuff.

Cloudy orange-amber colour. Toasty with a big rye character and some pommelo hop notes as well. Medium body. Surprisingly rounded malt character with woody hops, abundant rye, slight yeasty earthiness and toasty. Very fresh-tasting. I’ve been a bit underwhelmed by Big Time’s more recent lineup additions, but this is an old (if seldom made) recipe and the balance and quality is indicative of what made Big Time great back in the day.

[3/2/15] Draught at Big Time Brewery in Seattle. Clear coper. Aroma of honey, graininess, butter and a bit of hops. Sweetish flavor with honey, graininess, a bit of butter, spicy rye and a bitter hops finish. Medium-bodied. Dogbrick (13018) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a clear dark amber color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasty malt and mildly spiced hops. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of rye and toasted malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness left behind. Decent brew overall.

on tap-pours a white head and gold color. Aroma is medium malt-some bread. Taste is sweet medium malt-some bread/rye/caramel, faint hops. OK/mild carbonation. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Draft at Brouwer’s. Pours cloudy medium amber with a light, thin tannish head that leaves nice sheets of lace on the way down. Floral, fruity hops on the nose (grapefruit). Tingly carb, medium body, hop-forward attack. Rye is quite understated in this one compared to some others. It’s a balanced and drinkable session beer for sure.

Clear dark amber color/ lasting ivory sheen. Nice floral, spicy sweet rye, pale malt aromas. Smooth medium body. Rich malty sweet honey biscuit, toasted rye bread flavors with some floral hoppage--fruity finish--good. luttonm (6274) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Touch of brown in a clear honey pour. Thick foamy head, nitro looking. Nose is rough wheat and rye. Touch sweet but robust malt backbone. Taste is great, warming malt and seeming hops but mild bitter kick. Finishes a touch dry and a coating sweetness. Nice touch. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Was told this was a Rye IPA. Aroma is rather grainy with a touch of rye, and a little funky NW hops. Dark orange with a thin head. Alot of grain and rye in the flavor. Not a lot of bitterness, but a tad astringent. It does finish with a weird bitterness, but there is a lingering graininess that I didn’t like all that much. Not my favorite.
