A: Purchased this at By the bottle in Vancouver. Pours a clear orange color with good sized head.

Bottle from Elizabeth Station in Bellingham.
Appearance. Pours a lightly hazy gold-amber with a finger of thick off-white head.
Smell. Sweet yellow grapefruits, oranges, toasty malts. Smells great.
Taste. Yellow grapefruit juice, citrus rinds, toasty malts, more juicy citrus fruits. Yum.
Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, medium-low carbonation.
Overall. This stuff is great. Everything I like in an ipa and abv is really well hidden.

A - pours a slightly hazy orange with a standard head. Some lace. No bubbles.
S - hops: big citrus, mild spice, mild pine, hint of floral. Mild malt bill with a judicious use of caramel. Neutral yeast.
T - mimics the aroma. Centennial citrus forward with a soft, spicy hop finish. Mild sweetness. The hops provide more flavor than bitterness. I like bitter beers, but they don't need to be bitter to be enjoyable. This beer delivers juicy hop flavor minus the bitterness.
M - medium body. Creamy. Medium and pleasant bitterness with a short sustain.
O - there are so many great IPAs on the market. This one isn't super extreme, but it's far from weak and it does a very nice job of being hoppy, highly aromatic and flavorful without assaulting your senses with 200+ibu. The $5.99 bomber price was a STEAL compared to my local $8-$12 prima donnas and frankly, this is a better beer anyway. Hellooo Gigantic. Welcome to IL!

Pours cloudy orange with a big sticky off white head.
A little bit of malty sweetness in the aroma more than balanced out by fresh citrus hops. Not a ton of complexity, but the citrus is nice.
Starts off with a bit of citrus followed by a little malty sweetness then BAM intense grapefruit and pine hops finishing very dry. Grapefruit pith lingers on the back of the tongue. Excellent.
Dry and hoppy perfect for a west coast IPA. Medium to light bodied.
Very tasty beer and much more than I was expecting. Not all aspects shine, but it has one of the best finishes of any IPA's I've tried recently.

A: Very orange, with little head. The appearance almost foreshadows the citrusy taste.
S: Hoppy, beery, good.
T: Biting citrus with an almost floral background, fading to warm booziness. Orange peels and hops and alcohol and goodness.
M: The kind of tart that makes one red in the face. Smooth, not thick, not watery. The carbonation and bitterness leave a tang on the tip of the tongue.
O: A very good beer. Refreshing, drinkable, and a great every day IPA. Bottle bears cute shout-outs to Portland with a reference to The Simpsons (the taste "embiggens" with every drink) and to Reed College, across the street from the brewery (Reed's mascot the Doyle Owl).
