22oz Bottle pours a pale brown color with a little head. Full hop flavor but not too intense. Malty aroma.

Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours translucent copper with a slight white head. Aroma of citrus with some pretty brown sugary malt. Med body. Flavor is lots of citric hop with some pretty sweet caramel. A hop burn builds. This is not a NW harsh hop thing. It’s a very hoppy, smooth, lightly burning hop thing. Lots of redundancy there, but it’s appropriate. The burn continues to build, and the malt slowly sinks towards the sunset. Finishes pretty balanced surprisingly. crackedmachine (481) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Slightly hazy, mostly clear copper-gold with a thick and foamy white head.
Bright, crisp tangerine and pine aroma with just a bit of graininess.
Big citrus flavor, moderate fruity sweetness, tangy citrus, fairly bitter finish. Crisp and dry. Very good, but not as exceptional as $8.99/22 should be.

650ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger and a half of white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing behind. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and tropical fruits. Taste is a grapefruit and piney hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and malt sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A nicely done DIPA that just lacks a bit of complexity. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
22oz Bottle. Clear amber color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of biscuity malts together with piney hops, some grapefruit. Big bitterness, piney again. Quite typical american DIPA, pretty straightforward. Quite dry in taste, big bold bitterness and a typical malt base. Lacks a bit complexity though.

Pours amber, white head. Nose is pine, citrus, earth. Flavour is quite bitter, resinous, earth, pine, caramel. This is the first Double IPA my regular drinking buddy really fell for, which surprised me because it really is on the bitter end. She brought out a Lucky (discount pale lager) afterward and announced that it was awful, so thanks Gigantic for wrecking her palate; now she’ll stop buying that crap.

Bomber. Starts off good with some grapefruit and pine. Middle is bitter and spicy with sweet malty background. Brew becomes off-balanced and the finish is a bit off. Stizz19 (64) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2013
Poured from a 650ml bomber. Floral smell. Taste has a decent balance, a little acidic. Overall a pretty good beer from Gigantic.

Bottle - Rich grapefruit, resin and a dark malt background. Clear dark copper with a rich off white head. Dark malts with a candy like sweetness, piney with a hit of bitterness that has a long finish. A little booze and burn in the finish, but otherwise a nice IIPA. ccex (1284) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Nomber pours a cloudy orange amber with a decent tight eggshell head and some lacing. Aroma is full of orange, grapefruit, pine resin as well as some toffee malts. Taste is Initially sweet until a big bitter finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Alcohol is not obvious. This one is exactly what I had hoped for when I spotted an IIPA I had never heard of before today.
