3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazed orange color with a modest, cream thats slightly frothy. Aroma has a very strong orange nose with a light vanilla finish. Nose has an overall sweet profile with some modest bitterness. Flavor starts off with a mild amount of bitterness, sweet orange in the middle, some light sweetness from the malt and a very light touch of grassy bitterness that carries out to the finish. Body is a modest density with very low carbonation. Overall an okay offering but nothing unique.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Bottles and Cans. Pours an unclear orangey copper with a luscious white head leaving a lot of lacing; spots and circles and drips of lace. Aroma has pine and citrus and caramel. Taste is of oranges, spicy pine needles and sweet caramel with some resin. Medium bodied and lowly carbonated. Finishes bittersweet with a nice balance between the two. Just a nice solid tasty IPA that hits all the notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange, thin white head. Smells like pine and citrus - grapefruit, mostly. Taste is good deal of caramel up front, then grassy, hoppy notes, finally finishing with a long, sticky aftertaste. Really enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I was really looking for a Gigantic Whole in the Head but couldn’t find one (I love the name of this brewery). They have to make a funky messed up sour beer and call it Gigantic Problem, love it. This 22oz IPA bomber pours with a crystal clear copper body that supports an inch tall head of light colored foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetened grapefruit and mango fruity hops that round their way toward a touch of crystal malts to biscuit malts. The taste starts similar with smooth rich yet also soft grapefruit and tropical mango like hoppiness sweetened some with malts. To midway a pleasing citrus to resiny pine hoppiness takes over the flavor. It ends with a nice even mix of hop flavor and resiny hop bitterness along with a tasty supporting note of malts. The more I drink the more I like this.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle- Orange foggy on the pour, with a decent light yellow head. Notes of grapefruit and caramel. Bitter on the tongue as an IPA should be, bit finishes quick as to not be tooo bitter. Bitter after-taste lingers long enough to beg for another sip. Overall a great IPA and a new favorite beer for me.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - pours hazy pale orange, fluffy off white head that persists. Nose is fruity, resinous hops, grapefruit and mango, sweet caramel malts notes. Fairly heavy bodied for a straight IPA but lots of fruity west coast hop notes and long bitter finish that rounds out the malt sweetness. Nice west coast ipa
