Deep copper color. Amazing aromatics. Pine resin and earthy notes. Taste is mildly sweet. Notch for bitterness here but the hop bomb is there, just masked. Heavy and very enjoyable iipa.

22oz bomber poured to shaker pint

Pours a hazy reddiish gold, with less than a finger of off white head, dies down to a film.

Smell is an attractive citrus melange... orange, grapefruit and a little pine.

Flavor follows the nose, a bit more piney. Balanced to the bitter side, but not over the top. Malt notes are subdued, but there is a rockin' hot alcohol burn.

Mouthfeel seems a little thing for an IIPA... sneakily drinkable for almost 9%

Overall a very nice elixir that should meet with approval from many hopheads. A bit lacking in malt character and body, but hard to hold that against a beer so well hopped

Pours a half finger of head on a clear darker straw body.
The aroma is lots of citrus: lemon, grapefruit, orange; plus some pine.
The taste is super drinkable. Moderate pine bitterness with some mango and pineapple to mellow it out.
The texture is crisp.
An outstanding IIPA and almost too easy to drink.

Bomber served fresh and cold into a shaker pint glass.

Ginormous (great name, by the way) is a slightly hazy pale copper color. The head is thick with good retention and lacing.

Aroma is super hoppy and fresh with tons of grapefruity citrus.

Flavor is bold and full of great hop character. It's got all the citrus you could want plus plenty of pine. There is a good and simple malt bill to keep the bitterness in check but it's still a hop bomb.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, well carbonated, and drinkable for the style.

Overall an excellent double IPA and worth getting again.
