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.

trujahwarrior (515) - Monroe, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange color with a thick creamy white head that leaves awesome lacing. Smells of pine,grass and citrus and light floral notes. Tastes of tropical, citrus, grapefruit and semi sour with a light hops in the back end. Mouthfeel is light with a decent of carbonation. This is the first Gigantic beer I?ve had and what attracted me to it is because they got together with 3 Floyds to collaborate on this tasty brew. After having this I?m excited to try the other Gigantic beers.

Bottle from Tavour. Hazy copper color with good head and lace. Very very lifted malt and hops. Fresh. Honey and tropical. Citrus and blossom. The palate is sweet and fresh then falls away. Interesting. Not great.

Copper orange in color. Nicer than most English pales in that the hops stretch the style definitions. Biscuit malt tempered with citric and tropical fruit. Good balance, pleasant throughout with a light hop bite and crisp body.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy golden color. Dry and lean, the malts are a bit biscuity, bold bitterness with some herbaceous hop character; I may sense a tiny bit of butter in the aroma.
Not bad.

GTAEgeek (2467) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2017
On tap at Brewer’s Republic. Pours a slightly hazy, light orange color, with a medium, frothy, beige head that leaves some good lacing. Nice hop aromatics of citrus and pine, with notes of orange peels, nutmeg, hay, and some light earth. Not too sweet, with a smooth bitterness. Medium body, with a crisp, astringent, and hard palate. This is a nicely done pale ale. Good, subtle malt character, and lovely hop aromatics.
