A: Purchased this at By the bottle in Vancouver. Pours a clear orange color with good sized head.
S: Smell is very citrusy, grapefruit, tangerine. Slight bit of caramel malt.
T: Slight malt up front followed by big citrusy hop bite at the end.
M: Medium bodied, carbonation feels about right to me.
O: This is a really good IPA, glad I picked this up.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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).
