COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A freakin’ hop bomb. Bright, multilayered citrus hop aromas and flavors blow up your face, with just the right amount of hop bitterness to back it all up.

Pours clear gold with a tall, long lasting, sticky white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus and pine resin. The flavor carries lots of juicy malt sweetness with a good supporting hop bitterness. Some dryness comes in for the finish to cut any remaining sweetness.

These dudes at Gigantic really know how to brew some kickass beers. This has a big citrus hop aroma. Smooth and creamy texture. Flavor is monster citrus hops with a heavy malt balance. A little alcohol on the back end. Damnnice.

On firkin at Lardo east in Portland. Colour...medium gold with no head. Nose...boiled sweets (esp tropical fruits), hop resin, ponderosa pitch and needles. Palate...light on the CO2 (firkin), then a shot of pineapple infused sugar sirop, followed by peach and pear compote, dried papaya and mango, a lovely tanginess on the soft palate and a lengthy finish of floral hop essence. Gotta get some bottles of this one!

On cask at Lardo East. Orange brown hue. Caramel, citrus hop aroma. Really sweet hop bitterness, like caramelized citrus. Quite easy-drinking and balanced for an Imperial.

22. Pours a murky burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy whitish head that sticks around. Beautiful tropical and citrus nose, lots of mango, pineapple, and orange, along with some dust. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lots of orange peel on the mid palate, over caramel. Long orangey finish. Virtually free of resinous (or any other) heavy bitterness. A sweet/fruity hop bomb all the way. Hides the booze until the end, where there’s a vodka bite.
