On draught at 21st ammendment, Gigantes IPA is a glowing bronze with a off-white leaving nice lace.
Smell is sweet and fruity, some bubblegum. Dank, fresh hops.
Taste is agressively hopped, citrus, a little resin, firm bitterness yet sweet as well, I think more a perception from the hops than residual malt sugars.
Mouthfeel is dry, sharp, and a little chewy, medium bodied.
Drinkability is pretty good, a well made west coast ipa, I'd like to try it on cask to soften the mouthfeel.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer was served a medium amber color with a tiny white head that fades fast to leave only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell was citrusy and sweet with aromas of a sweet tangerine and orange mixed with some smells of caramel. Along with these sweeter smells were aromas of a bitter grapefruit as well as a bit of a bready malt aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter flavor of caramel and sweet citrus of a tangerine and orange nature. Upfront there is a moderate amount of a grapefruit hop taste which gets stronger as the flavor advances further. Along with the hop ,so too comes more flavors of a bready nature, but these are always much lighter and less detectable then the citrus hop. At the very end a lighter amount of a pine hop flavor also joins the profile giving the brew a lightly sweetened, but decently hoppy flavor .
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both make for a very easy drinking brew, but also allow for the hop flavors to be picked up nicely by the tongue.
Overall – It was a good IPA, but nothing exceptional. Worth a try, but not really worth going out of your way for.
