COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer #3 in the endless series of limited edition artist and artisan beers. Gigantic and Three Floyds unleash this true weapon of mass distraction. Citrus and tropical hoppyness lead to fill malt flavour from proper English malt, kilned over Welsh coal. Brewed for those of us that live and die in the Timbers Army and Section 8.

Bottle. Orange pour, wisp of a head. Orange marmalade heavy aroma, English hops, touch of cigarette, big orange driven citrus notes, fruit heavy. Decent bitterness. Good EPA

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, orange rind, citrus, and caramel malt. Flavor is big tropical and citrus fruits, oranges, pineapple, mango, lemon, and then a buttery caramel finish. On the palate the beer is medium bodied, crisp carbonation, finishes clean and semi dry.

bookman10 (621) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Good, but not great IPA. Pours a cloudy, golden yellow with minimal head. Strong citrus aroma, with a combination of citrus flavors and hop bite. Fairly smooth finish. While I certainly enjoyed it, I guess I was expecting something more--something of a disappointment, really.

beersearcher (2315) - Glendale, California, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Wow. What a huge tropical aroma. I could smell it from across the kitchen. Pineapple and mango. Thick and viscous. This golden orange brew might be my favorite of 2012. I did not expect this from Gigantic and the Floyd’s.

ericdevin (658) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle at 16 Tons. Good head, medium lacing. Medium copper color. Grapefruit prominent in nose, slightly creamy and sweet. Tiny hit of citric bitterness from hops. VERY drinkable, the English malt is nice and roasty. A lot going on here and while an unusual example of the style, it is quite enjoyable.

hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle... Pours mostly-clear and orange with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The bouquet is an intertwining of juicy tropical and citrus fruits. Medium-bodied and creamy with lazy carbonation. The perfectly-balanced flavor delivers pale grain sweetness flanked by unobtrusive, tropical hop bitterness. Finishes crisp, clean and a touch thin. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

nbondi (200) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Murky amber with big billowy white head. Nose of straw, corn, bubblegum, confectioners sugar. Light body, lively carbonation. Flavors of Juicy Fruit gum, some Belgian esters...? Tastes more like an American Pale, but with a sturdy malt back bone, none the less. Pretty good.

oRos (1032) - sacramento, California, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Bottle shared from beerboxer. Has a slight hop aroma. Color is dark copper with a white head. Taste starts off with a sweet hop finish. Not very bitter

Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours hazy dark god with a creamy white head. Aroma is quite fruity and floral. Med body. Flavor is dry, light pitted fruit, caramel. Decently bitter. Bitter sticks on the palate.

marcus (6303) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dirty blonde with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a mildly bitter carbonated pale malt flavor with a dryness that sticks to the palate.
