COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 4.5 hour flight separates Phuket from Laos, which is an hour shorter than the flight from Michigan to Portland, Oregon where the folks from Gigantic Brewing Company reside. That is why a meeting in Hawai’i led to the collaboration and creation of this hoppy, lime saison. Aromas of lime, unripe pear, and the classic pineapple tinted notes of Jolly Pumpkin funk, erupt from your glass. Phuket; It’s Not That Far From Laos is light, lively, and quite dry due to the inclusion of Jasmine Rice and Palm Sugar in the mash. The use of Cascade, Chinook, and Jarrylo hops, as well as Lime Peel, meld together flavors of citrus, pine, and white grape that linger quietly before finishing slightly bitter with mild tartness.

b3shine (9197) - Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Draft to taster at HopCat in Kalamazoo. Looks good for the style; a mildly hazy lemony gold with foamy white head. Smells of lime, mild hops and yeast, and a touch of pineapple, pear, and funk. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied, mildly but pleasantly citrusy, and finishes semi-dry. Tasty and sessionable.
