COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer #3 in the endless series of limited edition artist and artisan beers. Gigantic and Three Floyds unleash this true weapon of mass distraction. Citrus and tropical hoppyness lead to fill 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.

22oz bottle. 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.

Ferris (14387) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
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.

cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bomber, super carbonated, massive head, maybe a bad bottling. Great grassy, hoppy, citrus nose. Clean short dry grass and citrus attack. Smooth finish.

Pours a rusty golden color with a small head. Nose is citrus and pine, and quite pleasant. Taste is hoppey and bitter with a myriad of citrus. Finish is bitter sweet and ends on a citrusy long note. Nice EPA ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

zgaier (1939) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Pours a hazy orange with aroma of hops and floral notes. Taste is well balanced and light, of hops, malt, floral, and citrus notes with a bitter finish. Very drinkable, tasty beer.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Orange pour, wisp of a head. Orange marmalade heavy aroma, English hops, touch of cigarette, big orange driven citrus notes, fruit heavy. Decent bitterness. Good EPA

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2012
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.

bookman10 (1077) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Good, but not great IPA. Pours a cloudy, golden yellow with minimal head. Strong citrus aroma, with a combination of citrus flavors and hop bite. Fairly smooth finish. While I certainly enjoyed it, I guess I was expecting something more--something of a disappointment, really.

Wow. What a huge tropical aroma. I could smell it from across the kitchen. Pineapple and mango. Thick and viscous. This golden orange brew might be my favorite of 2012. I did not expect this from Gigantic and the Floyds.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle at 16 Tons. Good head, medium lacing. Medium copper color. Grapefruit prominent in nose, slightly creamy and sweet. Tiny hit of citric bitterness from hops. VERY drinkable, the English malt is nice and roasty. A lot going on here and while an unusual example of the style, it is quite enjoyable.
