Great piney, citrus scents of hops. Great tan orange color with a slightly cloudy body. I great hop taste that is followed by an amazing rinse that leave a delicate trace behind. It is a very refreshing hoppy beer. Very enjoyable!

22oz bottle. Pours an orange amber with a white head. This is a citrus bomb. Great IPA. Grapefruit, citrus, pine, some caramel. Nice amount of bitterness.

On tap at Hops in New Westminster. A beautiful orange color with a bit of off white head. Bittersweet on the nose. A very appealing balance of hops and malts, with a lingering, bitter finish. Very nice!

22oz bomber. Not date on bottle.. New distribution in SF Bay Area this week. A solid IPA. Seems to be bottle conditioned, so that's huge points. Creative label is also bonus points. Malt definitely takes the backseat to the hops here.. Earthy, herbal, floral, citrus hops dominate the profile... Minor hints of malt give support... Nice bitterness, without being overwhelming or astringent. Great mouthfeel, carbonation and refreshing weight. Well balanced and not overdone or over-the-top. I could drink a lot of this!! A solid "go to" IPA.. It seems to tick all the boxes of what a "West Coast IPA" is... On par with all the the other solid "West Coast IPA" breweries. If you like Racer 5, you'll enjoy this. Awesome. Solid. Gigantic ;) Worth trying... and buying again. Highly recommended.

Nice full bodied hoppy aromas with excellent flavour to match. A really nicely balanced bitterness level and a good malt back bone with carbonation levels to bring out the best in this beer.

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.

I was really looking for a Gigantic Whole in the Head but couldnít 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.
