4.06/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
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

Golden Nugget - Toppling Goliath
APPEARANCE: Pours a star-bright 24 karat gold with shimmering hints of apricot rim variations. Massive light fluffy white head. Very attractive beer especially in the natural light, the carbonation is really dancing.
AROMA: This is a very feminine beer, bouquet of rose petals, sweet perfume and baby powder. Hints of citrus fruit with a light nice pine sent. Very inviting nose that begs to be taken in.
TASTE: Clean, refreshing. The perfume nose translated into a nice honey taste up front. Caramel, pine and the rose petals I got on the bouquet come through. Floral and light with a slight bit of candied oranges and those peaches-O's gummy candies.
MOUTHFEEL: Lots of vivacious carbonation. Medium body. Crisp and clean with a great short dry finish.
OVERALL: This is only the second TG beers I've had, both have been really light and feminine in style. Very nice change up from the palate wreckers I usually go to. Very drinkable and I really was enjoying all the floral and perfume notes that came out in this ipa.
RATING: 4/5 Zombie Heads!
