Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: AmericanGothic on 06-06-2011

This spectacularly golden, medium bodied IPA was crafted from a winning combination of Golden Promise malt and Nugget hops.

Fall in love with the big hop aroma of our Golden Nugget as it mingles with fragrances of citrus and evergreen, followed by a floral sweetness. Tropical fruit flavors entice your taste buds before immediately captivating you with a bold, hop forward taste and a pleasant bitterness that lingers in the finish.

Pours a golden-orange color with a moderate size white foam head. Didn't pour very aggressively. Head dissipates quickly, leaving some slight lacing around the edges.

Very strong, pine citrus and floral aromas. Grapefruit is noticeable. Very strong aroma.

Taste is very similar to the nose. Some hop bitterness leads off. Definitely has a bit of a grassy taste. The taste definitely leans a bit more tropical. Mango, grapefruit, orange, hint of lemon zest. Pine comes through a bit stronger on the second glass (poured from bomber).

Light bodied we moderate carbonation. Extremely easy to drink.

Although I did enjoy this beer, it wasn't quite what I had hoped for for my first entry from Toppling Goliath. Would've liked to have seen a little more complexity from the taste.

Poured from 22 oz bomber into my SN IPA glass.

A: Golden straw with a hint of orange and a one finger fluffy head. Strong lacing

S:Pine and floral hops are the first aroma. Citrus is a background note.

T: Lemon and grapefruit rind with some sweeter fruits compete with the pine and floral flavors.

M: Light to medium body with good carbonation. Appropriate amount of bitterness and little if any alcohol burn.

O: A very enjoyable and drinkable IPA. You can taste how well it was made. An excellent overing from from Toppling Goliath.
