My perception of this beers seems to be an outlier - I had it without knowing really anything about it other then a collab IPA. I loved it. Overwhelmed with the flavor, and aroma, of juicy fruit bubble gum. Light bodied, huge, bright sweet hops, it was pretty much perfect to me, in taste as well as uniqueness. Maybe I'd tire of it as an everyday beer, but for at least the one bomber, I was in heaven.

4.45/5  rDev +15.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours dark orange with a 2 finger white creamy head. Good retention and spotty lacing down the glass.

Bready caramel malt mixed with some pleasant American hops. Loads of citrus specifically orange along with a bit of tropical fruit.

Very interesting flavor profile. Not overly hoppy as most things FFF touch (not that that's a bad thing). Bready biscuit malt stands out and is perfectly balanced by the citrus hops. Neither too hoppy or too malty.

Fairly thick for the style with medium-low carbonation.

Very impressed by Gigantic so far. I feel this is a good blend of an English and American IPA that creates a unique flavor profile. Very enjoyable.

22oz bomber - collaboration with FFF

appearance: served in a hiliards can-pint, dull orange-copper body, light beige film

smell: toasted bready malts, orange peel

taste: a great Americanized english IPA - really an interesting hop profile - orange zest, lemon, grapefruit matched 1:1 with bready toasted malt notes. Three floyds influence here is obvious - the best of the bunch from Gigantic thus far

mouthfeel: light, refreshing - light bitterness

overall: solid

Bottle opened on 7.30.12

A - POurs a cloudy dark orange with a one inch cream-colored bubbly head.

S - Hoppy pine and oranges. Dare I say 3F influence?

T - Hoppy citrus first, then a strong english malt dominates the finish.

D - Good carbonation with a medium body. Bitter finish.

O - These guys are 3/3 on their bottled beers in my book. Keep it up.

Pours a hazy orange-amber with a short, creamy head. Aroma of citrus (lemon especially) and pine needles. Wow -- big, sweet, juicy lemon on the tongue, with a smooth, full mouthfeel and a hint of balancing biscuit. Definitely an American take on the style, but the creamy light-bodied drinkability certainly remind me of British ales. Finish is nice and dry.

Not the most robust or complex beer I've had, but certainly enjoyable. I wish I could get it all the time.

Bottle to pint

Had this in a social situation so couldn't give it the usual critical review, but this one really surprised me. It smells so good. There's a fruitiness mixed with a mild sour dough note. It's mild and easy drinking but each sip is interesting and tasty. Just a hint of bitterness but barely even into pale ale territory. Very pleasant and very well done.

Received from Lordkrystic, making my way through the huge box, thanks again!

A - Beautiful golden orange hazy liquid sitting in the glass, looks stunning! Mild head with nice tiny carbonation bubbles, lacing sticks with it

S - Fruity and citrus, borderline resinous but it pulls back a little bit, some sweeter biscuity malt melds nicely with the strong hop smell

T - Nice initial fruit burst with a quick transition to the sweetness and finally ending on an earthy homegrown orange note that quickly passes, finish is very dry and clean

O - Pretty fabulous tasting English Pale Ale, very drinkable, enjoyable and would easily finish a few of them! Really enjoyed this.

This beer surprised the shit outta me.

From the label: Gigantic + Three Floyds unleash this true weapon of mass distraction. Citrus, floral and tropical hoppyness lead to full malt flavour from proper english malt, kilned over welsh coal. Brewed for those of us that live and die in the timbers army and section 8.

Pours fuzzy apricot with a sheet of fine whites and soapy hedges. Smells of peat, malt, coal, grapfruit, orange zest, grass and some floral coatings. Nice nose. Tastes of fine malts with a smoked accent, some peaty character, a bit of hay, lots of biscuit, some bitterness and a hint of orange pith. Medium on full bodied with low carb and a slick over dry finish. I like this beer.

Bottle from the Whole Foods in Tanasbourne. Brewed in collaboration with Three Floyds.

Pouring a clear light copper with an off-white head comprised of large bubbles and a thin foam cap, this looks nice. Lacing here is minimal. The nose is quite enjoyable. Fruity and perfumey hops are most noticeable, along with a little bit of toffee, caramel, and a slight mineral/chalk note. An earthy hop bitterness is also perceived. A mild fruity, earthy hop character is also present.

The palate opens with a blend of fruity hops balanced with a blend of toffee, caramel (more like brittle rather than crystal malt). The fruity hop flavor is especially enjoyable. Toasty, moderately malty in the mid-palate, with a prominently fruity yeast expression that I'm digging, this beer is quite tasty. Medium in body with a moderate carbonation, this beer has a finish that's mildly bitter, drying and has lingering flavors of toffee, butterscotch and fruit. The bitterness is a blend of herbal and pine, with a subtle and appropriate level of resin present. Impressive.
