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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 itís labeled, itís quite nice!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber, super carbonated, massive head, maybe a bad bottling. Great grassy, hoppy, citrus nose. Clean short dry grass and citrus attack. Smooth finish.
