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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: solid gold coloring. Good strong clarity and a finger of a white head that fades fairly quickly and leaves only a small lacing

Smell: mix of toasted and crystal malts. Hops come in with floral, citrus and pine. Just a touch too weak

Taste: opens with some floral hops, transitions to malts. Sweet and a little toasty. Ends with lots of citrus and a little pine. Good balance.

Mouthfeel: light and just a little bit of lingering bitterness.

Overall: well crafted and tasty pale. Just short of great to me.

Serving type: on-tap

4.18/5  rDev +10%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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
