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.

Surprisingly bland....faint hops, lots of bread, and a yeast presence that seems off. An odd pale that just isn't all that enjoyable.

Appearance: Slightly hazy gold, good head.

Smell: First hits with black olives, then some indistinct berries and mild sweetness. Kinda strange.

Taste: The strangeness continues, moderate sweetness, earthy berries, dull orange.

Overall: Picked up a bottle over in Wiscoland to try. Glad I only picked up one, this is pretty strange tasting, earthy oranges--like they are just going bad and losing their sweetness.

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.
