From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #69 (October 2012):

An interesting collaboration with Three Floyds in that it’s not some over-hyped whale of a beer style. It’s simply a solid take on an English Pale Ale with an Americanized hoppy twist. Flavorful, balanced and easy to drink. We’re definitely looking forward to trying more beers and collaborations from Gigantic.

Hazy orange amber with thin off-white head and okay retention. Resinous tropical citrus. Sticky earth and grass with a dominating biscuit malt with just some very light notes of the tropical fruits. Light to moderate bittering. Light, sharp body with a heavy finish.

A good hop display in the aroma is quickly beaten back by the malts throughout the remainder of the drinking experience. The initial aroma is great but is dominated by a heavy biscuit and pilsner. Not an overall pleasant experience to finish but a pint wouldn’t be bad if I felt like a heavy EPA.

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.

Served chilled into a tulip.

Pours a hazy strawberry blonde with a white head that recedes quickly.

Has sweet, slightly tart aroma, reminiscent of sour hard candies.

Flavor is fairly sweet with a sour background. Fades quickly with very little aftertaste.

Light to moderate body with moderate carbonation.

I was glad to see other people struggle with reviewing this one as much as I did. Overall a good beer with some interesting characteristics but something missing. Light body would make for a good summertime brew.
