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.

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.

Pours a hazy dark gold with about a finger's worth of head on the beer. Well carbonated. Relatively good lacing on the glass.

Picking up notes of tropical fruit, citrus, and bread-like malt aromas.

Taste pretty well matches the nose. Nice shot of citrus/tropical fruit up front with a nice malt balance. Definitely more along the lines of an English pale ale/IPA. Orange peel/rind in the finish. Finish also features a slight hint of buttery toffee.

Mouthfeel is lively and crisp with good level of carbonation. Would go nicely with a blue cheese, I think.

Overall, an enjoyable, crisp, hoppy English-style IPA or pale ale. Hops and malt work together quite nicely here. Good collaboration between Gigantic and 3 Floyds.

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.

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.
