5/5  rDev +5.7%

Simply put, this is the perfect IPA.

Bright yellow/orange in color. Sticky lacing, 1.5 finger head....yada yada yada.

The smell, and taste... I've used the expression "bursting with citrus" before, but this takes it to another level. Fresh squeezed clementines and grapefruit. It's difficult to explain balance in an IPA like this, but when you get a taste of it, you'll understand. It just dances in your mouth. Unbelievable stuff.

Mouthfeel is thick, slick, and held together by the perfect level of carbonation.

I wish I could rate this beer a 110. Please make this again Toppling Goliath. Unbelievable stuff.

This beer is amazing! It's a yellow to orange hazy brew. looks a lot like fresh squeezed orange juice. You can really smell the citrusy hops & sweetness of the malts! It almost feels like a thick shake in your mouth as you get hit with nice fruity & citrusy hops. It's a very sweet brew that I would drink again & again!

Incredibly hazy - like pulpy orange juice. Very minimal head but impressive looking beer. One of the crazier aromas - incredibly dank - huge citrus, almost like a cat pee/sweat type of astringency, sweet fruits, pine, very very bright citrus fruits. Taste is very clean and smooth - a vibrant wash of the aforementioned flavors.

In a class with Heady - very low bitterness, incredibly balanced and easy drinking. This is a crazy good IPA
