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.

Bottled: unk This beer surprised the shit outta me. From the label: Gigantic + Three Floyds unleash this true weapon of mass distraction. Citrus, floral and tropical hoppyness lead to full 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. Pours fuzzy apricot with a sheet of fine whites and soapy hedges. Smells of peat, malt, coal, grapfruit, orange zest, grass and some floral coatings. Nice nose. Tastes of fine malts with a smoked accent, some peaty character, a bit of hay, lots of biscuit, some bitterness and a hint of orange pith. Medium on full bodied with low carb and a slick over dry finish. I like this beer. Serving type: bottle 10-29-2012

AmEricanbrew (5870) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 22, 2013
hazy golden color with lasting ivory head. Light pit fruit, caramel, floral, mild infection aromas. medium body, soft carbonation. Juicy tropical fruit flavors with mild florals, toasted caramel, and mild polycarconate--not bad.

jgb9348 (4773) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Super hazy light copper coloured body with a muddy orange and bronze glow and a nice, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of earthy english hops, nuts, caramel, raisins, herbal and grassy hops and a hint of light fruits - very nice and strong and plenty of hops. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Strong malt notes up front with a toasty finish, some apple and pear flavours along with a good light hop note and some pineapple and passionfruit flavours as well. Aftertaste shows a decent complexity with some grassy hops at first, a good malt backbone and a little sweetness at the end from fruits. Overall, a nice and robust beer with plenty of complexity and a good solid malt backbone with some nice hop notes on top. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Brown Jug in Anchorage (Northern Lights Blvd), Alaska on 26-May-2013 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 25-June-2013.

neepsntatties (1221) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2013
On tap. Colour...orange-gold-amber with a thin head. Nose...quite citrus like with marmalade, Seville oranges, quince and grapefruit skin. Palate...plenty frothy with grapefruit seed extractives, orange zest and kumquats followed by hints of malt and light bodied caramel. The citrus definitely steals the show here and carries its way gracefully across the entire palate with a few notes of pith and pineapple core. Somehow tips hardly seems like an English pale, but regardless of how it’s labeled, it’s quite nice!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Soft hazy amber, moderate sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Soft sweet and citrusy tea leaf like hop presense.   Has a citrus sweetness to it that is stronger than the hop presense.   Its like a sweet hop tea without any of the bitterness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes quick, a little flat, with a tea leafy like flavor, sweet, a bit citrusy, but without much bite.   Pretty much what I expected I guess.   Seems decent enough, for an English IPA.   Not dank either, which seems to occur on the voyage over here.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2013
22oz bottle. Amber brew with a fluffy white head. Amazing tropical fruit aroma - like ripe and juicy fruit. I really enjoy the mix of deep English malts and American hops in this. Extremely balanced.

Ferris (4500) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle - Orange, grapefruit and sweet hops. Clear amber with a rich head. A sweet grapefruit, maybe more like a pomelo. Lots of citrus with only a mild bitterness. Very refreshing , but so much grapefruit flavour that it is a little distracting.

cstuartj (989) - Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bomber, super carbonated, massive head, maybe a bad bottling. Great grassy, hoppy, citrus nose. Clean short dry grass and citrus attack. Smooth finish.

Pours a rusty golden color with a small head. Nose is citrus and pine, and quite pleasant. Taste is hoppey and bitter with a myriad of citrus. Finish is bitter sweet and ends on a citrusy long note. Nice EPA ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours a hazy orange with aroma of hops and floral notes. Taste is well balanced and light, of hops, malt, floral, and citrus notes with a bitter finish. Very drinkable, tasty beer.
