Growler filled at Casanova Liquor in Hudson, Wisconsin yesterday. Tasted 17 February 2014.
Pours clear pale golden orange. One finger of whitish head, good retention and delicate lacing. A solid column of bubbles rising up.
Smell is big juicy hops, backed well by a solid sweet malt base. Oranges and peaches with an acidic twinge. Delightful.
Taste is clean and crisp, with just the right amount of hop bite. It's the tiniest bit chalky, but that backs off quickly. Has the same clean-ness that I've found in other hoppy Toppling Goliath beers, almost like a saltine cracker pulling the badness out before you can taste it. And the citrusy hops come through far better than they do in most IPAs. Delicious.
Feel is outstanding. Medium-bodied, just the tiniest bit sticky. Carbonation is plush, like a pillow of slightly-prickly foam to dance across. Fantastic.
Another big hit from TG. I don't understand how they make all their beers so freaking good, but I feel lucky that I get to drink them. Not quite the best of their beers that I've had, but really really good. I would drink this any day over just about any IPA around. Reminds me of a higher-IBU sibling of PseudoSue. I bought one growler of this; wish I'd gotten half a dozen, and I'm very happy I have half of the one left for tomorrow.
