British Columbia (Canada)
3.85/5 rDev -0.3%
A: 1/4" white head over deep amber liquid.
S: Honey and leafy, earthy and grassy hops.
T: Grapefruit, orange peel, as well as leafy and grassy hops over a caramel malt backbone.
M: Thin viscosity and a medium level of carbonation.
O: This English style ale is quite dry, and would be more drinkable if it was sweeter and more malty like a Fullers.

22 oz bottle into Barley Brown's shaker pint glass, 8.5.12.
One finger small bubbles white head, medium-slow dissipation with above average lacing. Interesting aroma, bready with an assertive hop aroma, spicy and peppery. Taste mirrors nose, this is one hoppy pale ale. Mouthfeel on the light side of medium, decent effervescence. This was a very interesting collaboration, a drinkable pale ale with a significant hop presence. One of the hoppiest versions I've had of the style, close (bot not quite) as hoppy as Barley Brown's Tumble Off. I look forward to the next collaboration, it's going to be huge.

3.9/5 rDev +1%
A: Poured a lightly hazed orangish color with a moderate white cap and bubbles with light lacing
S: Subtle grapefruit and pine on the nose
T: Sarts out with a light grapefruit balaned with a light caramel. The finish is rather clean and dry with light to moderate hop bite
M: Light to medium bodied, well carbonated, balanced and it definitely leans English
O: Pretty good

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.
Appearance: light orange hue with a touch of haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a thick finger of frothy ivory foam. Not bad!
Smell: interesting aroma which is grainy, floral, soapy and spicy. At first I didn't know how to interpret it, but I feel like it has grown on me. An interesting take on an English pale.
Taste: flavor is more of the aroma. Grainy, bready malt is rounded out by a floral, lightly spicy hop flavor and finally a relatively strong bitterness for the style. I appreciate this beer as much for its novelty as for its flavor.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a big level of carbonation and a pretty huge creaminess. I like it.
Overall: kind of a strange beer, and not normally my bag. However, I could see myself drinking a lot of this.

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

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.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a thin white head that dissipates slowly to a ring around the glass with slippery lacing. Light, but intriguing aroma of light toasted malt and aromatic light fruit leaning towards stone fruits like peach and apricot, maybe some pineapple. Flavor is dominated by similar fruit and citrus hops with a nice biscuit malt base. Citrus hop and residual fruit flavors in the finish. Flavors are somewhat subdued, but nicely balanced. Definitely interesting flavors and somewhat more citrus hops than I'd expect for an English pale ale, but then I feel this style could use a little eccentricity once in a while. An interesting flavor profile while providing the basics of an English ale. Medium bodied with a somewhat surprising hint of creaminess. Nice job.
