Gigantic Brewing Company - High Fidelity Beer

Drinkin' in stereo
Ah, another beautiful morning in Portland. I'm just sitting on the deck in the (partial) sunshine, writing beer reviews and sipping on a homemade cappuccino. My wife makes some mighty perfect coffee drinks, by the way. In case you were not aware, the only thing Portlanders take more seriously than beer is coffee. I'm not a member of the java cognizanti, but I do know my wife makes one helluva awesome cappuccino.

I drank quite a number of tasty beers last night. One of them was Gigantic Brewing Company's High Fidelity Beer. It's an American Pale Ale with an ABV of 5.9%

The beer poured into my shaker pint a golden amber color with a massively huge white head. The head dissipated slowly and copious amounts of lacing was left behind.

Aroma was resinous pine and citrus hops. Biscuity malt.

Taste was citrus: orange, lemon and a bit of tangerine. Prominent malt flavor throughout. Spicy, herbal notes.

Medium mouthfeel with very good carbonation. A slightly creamy finish with the mild hops bitterness and bready malt competing for attention on the palate.

Good stuff and I'm giving High Fidelity a BeerGuyPDX rating of 3 1/2 crushed cans out of 4.
