4/5  rDev +3.9%

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

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.

This reddish-brown brew is crowned with a voluminous tan head that sits tight until closing time. Earthy, resinous hops float from a caramel and fruit base. Tastes of pine and resin followed by caramel, grain and a dim fruitiness. Lighter side of medium with a creamy middle and drier end. Finding this one going down super easy and wishing I had a backup warming up in the bullpen.
