Notes/Commercial Description:
Dive into a Toppling Goliath Tsunami Pale Ale. Waves of mandarin orange aroma swell into this light ale body, coasting to a smooth, easy finish. This Tsunami is a breezy ride, not too bitter, and a perfect introduction for those not yet familiar with the craft brewing world. Prepare your palate to take the plunge with a chilled Tsunami Pale, best served in a pint glass.

Ours hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of musty nectarine and mandarin orange.

The taste is of nectarine with a balancing biscuity sweet balance. It has a long finish.

It is chewy - fuller side of a light-bodied pale ale. Very refreshing!

There is a balanced bittersweet fruitiness that makes this a nice, refreshing brew! A "sessionable", balanced, vibrant American Pale Ale.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

16oz poured in a shaker pint on draft at Craftsman in Middleton, WI today, 1/29/2014.

App- clear orange-copper body with a clean white 1 finger head, good retention, good lacing.

Smell- crisp breadiness, hints of caramel and floral notes. Surprisingly not so hoppy.

Flavour- tastes like a crisp pilsner, bready and caramelly with floral hops. Not bitter at all.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, well carbonated, easy to drink but by no means bitter.

Overall- decent pale ale, tastes more like a pilsner. Not that great and I suggest looking for better options.
