4.06/5 rDev -4.7%
A - Crystal clear body, very light golden color. Head is stiff, bone white. plenty of lacing
S - I swear that TG slips some citra into all their beers. I can definitely get some of the tropical fruits that their other beers have, although the nose tends to be bring more pine and citrus than others.
T - Pretty much follows the aroma, light tropical fruits, with a finish that brings a good deal of bitterness. Bitterness seems to be getting more aggressive as it progresses, which I seem to appreciate.
M - A little thin, but not in a way that is detrimental to the beer by any means.
O - Another pretty solid beer from TG, I look forward to try some of their beers that aren't IPAs

Bottle split at Proof Happy Hour bottle share. Pale straw color with an uneven bubbly white head. Sticky legs and the head had some damn good staying power. Aroma is muted floral and grassy hops, grassy grainy malt and some tropical citrus. Taste is lightly bitter, but the sweet grass grain and floral/citrus hops play well together. Light body and low carbonation despite the big head.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.
Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing.
Smell: A ripe, juicy, and earth hop dominated aroma with big hints of tropical fruit, grass, and pine. Citrus hops with good hints of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, mango, melon, and apricot. Big presence of grassy and floral hops. Dank hints of pine resin as well. Hops smell nicely bitter and juicy. Soft malt background with hints of cracker, grains, straw, and yeast. Slight hints of honey sweetness. Very hop forward. A pretty good IPA aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma, a very juicy and earthy hop forward taste with big notes of citrus, grass, and pine. Big upfront taste of earthy and floral hops with notes of grass and evergreen. Citrus hop notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, melon, pineapple, mango, and apricot. Dank and spicy notes of pine resin. Soft backing presence of pale malt with notes of grains, cracker, straw, and yeast. Very hop forward and juicy with a nice bitterness. A very good IPA taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, crisp, and somewhat oily. Finishes pretty dry.
Overall: Another great IPA from Toppling Goliath. Very good mix of juicy citrus, grassy, and piney flavors.
