look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a hazy amber with two fingers of foamy cream coloured head.

Smell - citrus and leafy hops, tropical fruits (mango), citrus, grapefruit rind, hint of pine resin, bready caramel malts.

Taste - citrus and leafy hops start this brew followed by the tropical fruits (mango), citrus, grapefruit rind, hint of pine resin, and bready caramel malts.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a lingering bitterness from the hops.

Overall - An American IPA that delivers on all fronts. Easy to drink and the pleasant citrus and leafy hop combo make this an enjoyable one. Sure the hops could be more dialed up for the "hop heads" out there but this one is enjoyable nonetheless.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #69 (October 2012):

Hopped with Cascade, Centennial, Crystal and Simcoe hops, this is indeed one Gigantic IPA. It’s actually quite an onslaught of fresh hop bitterness and flavor, but manages to have some time for balance. It’s dry finish also makes it quite drinkable at just over 7% ABV. Though it doesn’t stand out amongst the sea on IPAs, it’s certainly a solid example and a reminder of the West Coast’s love for hops.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 7.3%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Semi-hazy amber, creamy white lacing

SMELL: Floral, piney, citrus skins

TASTE: Creamy, medium-bodied, prickly hop sting, citrus, pine, leaf, resin, earth, sweet, bready malts, juicy apples, dry, chalky aspirin

As this baby warmed, it opened up like my baby mama to the idea of (I'll let you fill in the blank, my peeps) after a few wine coolers.

Gigantic delivers an aight floral/citrus hoppy profile with a creamy malt backbone like Goldy Locks blending her morning porridge in a cuisinart.

Not "Pulitzer " status, but pretty doggone good.
