Huge head from the 22 ounce bottle--more than four fingers. It settles slowly in a rocky fashion, leaving a solid dome. Chunky, spider web lace. The liquid is orange-amber and a bit cloudy.

Caramel malt aroma. Nearly no hop smell.

Smooth body with a moderated carbonation. There's a lavender element to the otherwise malty flavor. The swallow is a white pepper bitterness. I get yeast on the tongue as well.

Bought 22oz bottle from Foodland $6.98
Orange amber color
Medium mouthfeel
Medium-light carbonation
Sweet hops taste, smooth and not bitter like a lot of IPAs
Overall this is an easy drinking IPA. I normally drink IPAs slower than other styles like lagers, but this one is so smooth I find myself drinking it too fast. If the price was lower I would buy these as 6-packs.

Appearance: Pours a rather hazy amber color capped by a frothy head; shards of lacing appear

Smell: Apples and pine with a hint of caramel underpinning

Taste: Caramel makes a brief appearance and then the apple and pine tones take over; moderate to high bitterness, after the swallow, with a dry aspirin-influenced finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Well this is a first, an IPA that tastes like it has been mixed with apple cider; afraid I am not a fan; perhaps this is due to the age of the bottle as, without a date on the label I have no idea how long it sat on the shelf - I purchased it on a recent trip to the west coast so I presume it was reasonably fresh

22 oz bomber poured to shakers. Amber color with 1 finger head, good lacing. Mild nose of pine, grass, fruit. Very well balanced taste between the malt and hops, pretty much perfect. Malt is a little bit toasty, and the hop flavors and bitterness are mild. The brewery is called Gigantic, but this beer is not, and I would not change a thing. Medium body and carbonation.

Poured from bomber, nice 1 finger head. Dark amber to look at. Smells of crystal malt, pine, citrus. More malt forward than most of today's IPAs which isn't bad. Nice caramel malt up front and finishes off with some pine and citrus in the middle. Semi bitter finish. Good solid ipa

Beautiful golden red color, nice head from a low carbonation. A little too smooth on the tongue for me. Nose is all hops, with fresh cut hay (in a good way) and a little creme brulee. Flavor is nutty, with lemon at first fading to a grapefruit. Damn fine IPA.
