Pouring from a growler filled at Casonova's in Hudson 104 hours ago (almost 4 and 1/2 days ago)

A=Hazy light gold color...nice fluffy white head....plenty of carbonation evident still..

S-Fresh citrus leaning towards lemons, but also oranges....combined with a light fresh floral aroma...

T-Another dandy...I get a lot of lemon drop like flavor from this...also some hints of tropical fruits...more papaya than mango...a bit of pineapple...I have a harder time describing the malt bill and have for most of the TG beers but it is what I think really makes these beers so good. Kind of an unobtrusive light sugar cookie maltiness...

M-Medium bodied...perfect weight and drinkablity for an IPA...not a pale ale but not a huge beer either....

O-Another top notch effort from this place. Quickly earning a spot in my top five breweries in the country if not higher...A slight tick below the others I have had from TG but still elite...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a growler into a Teku.

A: Brilliant golden hue with a slight haze and about 3/4 inch of frothy white head. Lacing coats the glass, and head settles to a couple of millimeters of foam on the surface.

S: Lots of citrus and tropical fruit up front, with some bready malt notes lingering behind.

T: Much like the smell, but more pronounced. Grapefruit, mango, and some pineapple notes, along with grassy, floral notes on the finish. Malt brings some honey-like undertones, along with some cracker-like notes.

M: Moderate in body, and full of flavor, but not as viscous and oily as some other IPAs. Very soft, with a dry, clean finish. Alcohol is well-hidden as well.

O: Toppling Goliath continues to impress me with their beers. This one is no slouch either. Drinkability is impeccable! I'll be picking this up again in the future.

Beautiful burnt gold body with a swelling white head. Lace like you wouldn't believe.

Dank, juicy hoppy awesomeness exlpodes from the growler. I'm immediately reminded of Bodhi - dense fruity hop aromas that would typically come behind a surge of bitterness, but that's not the case. It's clean. Very approachable.

Certainly is diverse on the palate compared to PseudoSue. Mellow orange juice flavors with prickly pine, an herbal sort of earthiness and an appropriate hop abrasion.

It's tasty. Very tasty. I'm still hooked on TG's single hop stuff though.

4.21/5  rDev +0.5%

Appearance: transparent yellow bodied beer with 2 fingers of white head. Thick lacing covers the side of the glass.

Smell: Lots of grapefruit and pine. Slightly dank.

Taste: This is a moderately bitter IPA. It leads with grapefruit and pine. Slight dank. As this beer warms up it starts to get "perfumey" kind of like how Dorthy lager tastes. Lingering pine and greapefruit in the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation levels. Bitterness lingers on into the finish. The beer drinks at the ABV.

Overall: Another great hoppy beer from TG. These guys really know their hoppy beers.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

This beer pours a hazy yellow-orange color. The head is a quarter inch in height, and recedes quickly into a small cap of lacing. The aroma is of mandarin oranges, passion fruit, grapefruit and flower bed. It is a strong, well crafted aroma. The taste runs along the same lines as the aroma. It is juicy with tons of citrus, and enough floral notes to keep the citrus from running riot. The bitterness is moderate for an IPA, but that works in this beet. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a velvety texture. Overall, this is a great IPA. Hell, it's a great beer period. I will be searching this beer out again many times in the future.

Pours a clear orange, finger of white head, great lacing

Smell is pineapple, bread, cracker, pine, clementine, orange, maybe even a touch of cantaloupe like melon character

Taste is a bit heavier on the melon, cantaloupe and honeydew, toasted grain, cracker malt, sweet mango and clementine, a touch of pineapple and pine, as it warms you get a touch of white wine like charachter finishing with a earthy bitterness

Mouthfeel is a solid medium, light to medium carbonation, clean drying finish

Good stuff here, used to like this better then Sue, either there as some batch differences or my tastes of changed (which is more likely) I think I was would now put Sue ahead of this. I find Sue bottles and Tap to be identical but I like Golden Nugget quite a bit more on tap then in the bottle

Either way, still one of the better IPAs out there just like the rest of there beers!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

On tap at Jac's and served in a pint glass. My desire to drink fresh Toppling Goliath beers continues.

Very light straw yellow with a cover and some skim.

Smell is much lighter than anticipated, though I will go on record claiming the deepest depths at which I hate that shit that bars spray into upside down glasses in the name of what, disinfectant? It sucks and I firmly feel it detracts from a positive tap experience. As is, light pine and malts.

One of the sprucier IPA's I've come across in quite some time. Floral, herbal pine and the Spruce Moose. I said "get in!" Hefty malt spine supports the evergreen and the finish shows some light orange citrus. Bready caramel all over as a firm prop.

Lightly sticky and aptly carbonated.

Truthfully this was a bit of a letdown.Not a bad beer by any means, just not what I look for in an IPA. On the maltier side and really not especially fresh tasting. Still looking forward to more TG beers and happy Madison seems to be in the plans.

I like the description of this beer quite a bit. It fits it well.

Working through a growler of this from the nova.

Nice white head. Color is a clear golden orange.

Flavor profile is a ton of citrus fruit mixed with some pine. Pineapple and grapefruit. Some floral earthy flavors. A tough of bready malts. Very fruity. Very fresh.

A nice amount of bitterness, but nothing overpowering. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

This growler was easy to polish off. Legit ipa from TG. Get some of this!

A: poured into a Hopleaf tulip. Clear golden color. Forms a moderately large bubbly white head. Decent retention. Lots of lacing.

S: Pleasant aroma. Citrus forward with notes of orange and grapefruit. A faint hint of pine in the mix as well.

T: Taste is the typical IPA flavor. Mild caramel malts, grapefruit, and pine.

M: Medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Moderate bitterness.

O: This beer tastes like the stereotypical American IPA. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I feel like I've had this beer a dozen times before.

Single hop IPA using Nugget hops I believe. From a 1 liter or so swing top growler. Hazy, amber with medium head and poor retention. Tastes/smells sweet, soft and only slightly hoppy. Medium feel, low carbonation and very smooth in general. However, bland.

They make better beer than this and I have had it so I can't say what went wrong here. Regardless it will not stop me for seeking them out!
---

Tried it again on tap at the brewpub... this is a much superior beer on tap compared to the growler that had carbonation issues, probably a mistake at my end. The carbonation was spot on and it had the bite of an IPA in every way. The sweetness is complemented very well by the hops... very very fruity and very good.

Reviewing the Golden Nugget IPA from Toppling Goliath Brewery out of Decora, Iowa. Toppling Goliath is a relatively new craft brewery to the scene, but is making a bold early impression and making some exciting brews, such as Mornin' Delight (a CBS killer, if you ask me) and Zeelander (a super lemon-forward IPA).

Score: 94

Growler pour from a growler filled the week before FOBAB 2012. Served in a Founders snifter and enjoyed on 12/01/12. Shout out to my friend Mathieu LaFontaine for hooking me up with this brew as part of my "winnings" from the fantasy baseball beer league this past summer.

Appearance: Pours a light amber color that is clean and falls between translucent and transparent. Only a thin layer off head off the pour, which settles to a pencil-thin ring around the glass. Below average lacing, but excellent cling. 4/5

Smell: In-your-face lemon, pine and grapefruit! Not just a lot. I mean its like someone took a sledgehammer made of lemon juice, pine needles and grapefruit and whacked you upside the head. Ample doses of dank, resinous hops as well. Very West Coast IPA-esque. Candied caramel malt, mango and sweet non-descript tropical citrus too. The aroma on this beer is an absolutely intense beast; and I love it! It is much more lemon/pine forward than most IPA I have had. 5/5

Taste: The taste is more subdued than the aroma with less citrus and more maltiness, leading to a more balanced profile on the tongue. Upfront is caramel malt, grapefruit and lemon, with a strong piney backbone. The back half is bitter, resinous hops, pine and mango-y lemon. Lots of lingering piney bitterness with a dash of candied caramel. There is a faint amount of non-descript residual black pepper-like spice in the finish as well. Some dirty hops come out in the finish/aftertaste as the beer warms. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Viscous and oily! This is one of the more full bodied IPAs that I have had to date with a nice low level of carbonation that nonetheless gives the hops a good kick while leaving the bitterness on the tongue to layer. Very bitter, and the hops prickle the palate. 4.5/5

Overall: This one blew me away. The nose on this brew is absolutely unreal. This is one of the tastiest IPA I have had in a long time.

Recommendation: Hop heads need to seek this beer out, though it is likely too intense (in a good way for IPA fans) on the bitterness for the casual beer to truly enjoy. Toppling Goliath is a brewery you may not have heard of yet, but need to check out ASAP!

Pairings: Thai chicken pizza.

Cost: $13 for a 64 oz growler fill (if you bring your own growler).

Growler purchased at Casanova's Liquor in Hudson for $10. One heck of a deal. Being that I got the fill at Casanova's, I was prepared for a rather poorly carbonated beer after just one day. And it happened yet again.

Pours a very hazy golden color with a minimum of head that settled to a thin film. Some spotty lacing is left down the glass. I have had this beer on-tap and it performs much better than what I was displayed today. Will not give a harsh score for a bad growler fill not within Toppling Goliath's control.

Very hoppy aroma. I get a lot of fresh citrus, tropical fruit, and floral qualities. I am not picking up any malt aroma.

Tastes juicy. Notes of oranges and grapefruit. Has a bit of a Juicy Fruit flavor as well. The malt adds sweetness but not really much flavor. Feels moderately bitter which is helped by the sweet malt. Really showcases the Nugget hops.

It is undercarbonated, again caused by the growler fill. I do remember this as being medium body and robustly carbonated.

I will take Nugget hops over Citra any day. This beer proves why it is a superior hop for the citrus fix.

Enjoyed this beer on draft at 3 different places during a short business trip to Iowa: El Bait Shop (Des Moines), Share (Iowa City) and Short's Burger & Shine (Iowa City).

A: Lightly hazy golden/pale color, topped with 1/2-1 finger of fluffy whitish head. Long-drawn ribbons of breaking lace, moderate carbonation.

S: Strong 'nugget' aroma: juicy & pithy, slightly piney, spicy. Sniff, sniff, sniff again. Very good cool, even better as it warms.

T: LOTS of citrus, tropical pineapple and orange, then green bitters and herbal grassiness. Captures all the best traits of these hops, and is backed by sturdy caramel/pale maltiness. Terrific balance.

M: Medium body, with a succulent 'juiciness' like freshly-squeezed citrus. Hop oils lend a sharpness and spicy bite, but overall balance is excellent and the bitterness wanes quickly.

O: A 'wow' beer ~ one of the most 'drinkable' IPAs I've ever had the pleasure of consuming. I'm a huge fan of a new brewery in Oregon called Boneyard; I think their RPM IPA is amazing --- but this Golden Nugget stuff? Damn, every bit as good. Very happy to have had the chance to (repeatedly) try... I'm singing its praises all the way back to the Pacific Northwest.

Had this beer on tap at Red's outside of Iowa city thanks to the recommendation of Damian, the head of beer operations at that fin establishment.

The beer has a nice orange color with nice lacing has well. A good but not amazing head. The aroma has plenty of nice pungent nugget hops, some sweet breads, and overall platforms the hop bitters in a west coast ipa manner, which I didn't expect from a Iowa brew! The taste follows the smell with fresh hops taking center stage, grassy and dank weed tastes that are great and sort of remind me of an Alpine brewery beer. A very good feel that is slick, bitter and semi sweet.

A very nice beer overall that needs to be had if you find yourself in the great state of Iowa.

On tap at Augusta in Oxford, IA; served in a shaker pint.

Brilliantly clear gold liquid with two fingers of lasting ivory merengue. Superior retention; dense sticky lacing.

Tropical fruit, citrus, passion fruit...immensely fresh hoppy aromatics. Words do not do it justice.

Palate closely follows the nose - suffused with fruity herbaceous hops, balanced by a touch of honey-like malt. Finishes dry yet fruity and minty. Moderately bitter throughout.

Thick, oily, creamy, perfectly carbonated...

Super-impressive, fresh, hop-forward, balanced, expertly crafted highly aromatic IPA. Rivals the best the West Coast has to offer with a slight increase in drinkability.

his beer its excellent on tap art their brew pub. The highlight of the entire experience its the decor. If you haven't check.. it out.

Color its golden and perfectly clear. The light Shines through and turns golden with this full, 7.2 percent IPA.(not 6 percent)

The aroma is lacking. Very few floral notes in the background, mostly malty. Better as out warns with citrus and pine.

Flavor its very full. I'd call this an IPA and a half. Very full with a smooth well balanced mouth feel that isn't over carbonated. Simple malty flavors start that let r the golden malt shine. Earthy flavors balance the sweet immediately and allow for citrus, grapefruit, and pine to come through. A little too bitter for the style but not overly astringent, leaving a smooth bitter aftertaste that lasts.

Overall an awesome beer to have on tap. Super fresh really n makes this a drink to remember.

On tap at The Root Note.

Golden color with egg white head and sticky lacing. Big citrus and floral fruit scents along with tropical fruit. Plump juicy hops with medium bitterness. Loads of citrus and tropical notes. A taste explosion. Medium body, a bit of prickly carbonation. Overall, love this beer. A top tier IPA for sure and I want more!

From Growler. Pretty spendy- $16 for G-nug refill, $20 including new growler.

Pours a beautiful amber color with a gorgeous fluffy head.

Juicy citrus notes abound- loads of hops cover most of the malt backbone which is how it should be. Very inviting.

In the taste department- with IBU's in the mid 50s its clear that the truckloads of hops were added at the end of the boil. Huge hop notes without immeasurable bitterness. Malt profile does a good job of trying to balance everything out.

Overall- awesome, awesome IPA. This brew almost makes me wish I lived in Iowa. Almost. Worth seeking out- if more people were exposed to this beer it would be one of the power-player IPAs in the beer world.

I poured this from a bomber into a glass stein.

Appearance- The same cloudy, golden-orange body greets me when poured. There is something about pale ales that TG make where they just shine through the glass, luminous and awesome.

The head is really pillowy and rather dense, with a good smattering of bubbles on the lid. It is about two-fingers in width with very decent web lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell- It is just oozing pine and citrus notes. The citrus is most noticeably some grapefruit rind. There is also just a slight sweet tinge to it that could come off as oranges. A slight must also brings to mind passion fruit. Wonderful!

Taste- It is not a palate wrecker, but the hop forward character is certainly here. The front of the drink has the hop tingle and flavor of some grapefruit and passion fruit. The pine also starts to mingle as it rolls over the tongue.

The finish is just as strong with these same notes, but breaks out the sweeter malt flavors and a slightly floral character. The malt is most like a caramel malt, and even imitates vanilla a little bit. Hop forward, but still showcasing a good malt quality. Awesome!

Mouth feel- The beer has a great medium body that goes well with this IPA. For the slightly bitter finish, it still finishes well; it is not too dry and goes down easy. This is really well done.

Overall- I think I enjoyed the bottle of Golden Nugget better than my tap experience, as my score will indicate. Honestly, the biggest difference was the great head and lacing that was not present from having it on tap.

That and the flavors were hoppier, yet seemed less bitter than I remember. I am not one to complain though. It is still a great IPA and one of the best I have had.

Sometimes the best things are discovered by accident. I went to Elkader and the OTHER bar was closed. Walked into a different bar that featured mostly Iowa beers.

I ordered a large. It came with a beautiful white head and a cloudy bright yellow body. Lacing was good thorughout the glass.

Nose was really fresh with floral, citrus and hops all the way.

Taste....Well.. In a nutshell, this is why we drink our beer fresh. This has the most beautiful fresh citrus blend of orange and lemon and the lemon rind bit you hard at first. There wasn't much spice but the hop profile was as good as it gets. I am told this is made with Golden Nugget hops. My mouth was loaded with hop flavor for some time after the visit. And it was a good aftertaste. A rare treat.

Mouthfeel was just heavy enough with good carbonation. I can't say enough about this beer. I truly think that for me personally this is the best IPA I have had. Just shows what fresh quality beer can do for you. I could only have one, I will go back. Next stop may be the brewery.

Poured a nice yellow with a off white head, very sticky and lots of lacing.

The smell is light and citrusy with mild hops and a light bit of bready malt.

The flavor is good, but nothing special, a light slightly bitter and a big centennial like citrus quality. The malt is almost non existant, just a light bit of underlying sweetness.

The mouthfeel is light and a touch resiny.

This beer doesn't have any real faults, but is a bit on the boring side, was hoping judging by the name that it would have some nugget hop charachters, but there is none to speak of.

Picked up a 22oz bomber of Golden Nugget from the brewery in Decorah. Poured into Globe glass.

A. Poured a 1+ finger of head. Nice golden color. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S. Great hop aroma. Really nice floral citrusy hop smell. Grapefruit and orange. A little piney hop smell, but mostly tropical fruit citrus. Impressive hop aroma. Not a lot of malt to pick up with all the hops. Another reviewer of Golden Nugget compared it to Two Hearted, and I can see now why.

T. Taste is very good as well. Has a nice bitterness as well as a lot of hop flavor. More of the citrus fruit flavors of grapefruit and a little orange. Has a pretty dry malt presence, almost biscuity. Tongue coating bitterness though.

M. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Lingering bitterness.

O. Have had this on tap a couple of times at different places in Decorah. TG does not allow growler sales of Golden Nugget, so that they do not run out of it. They are now bottling in Bombers so got an opportunity to take it home. This is a very good IPA, on par with some of the big boys. Keep an eye out for Toppling Goliath.

A - Wonderful crisp golden color with a nice, creamy, tight white head. A nice thin lace is left behind.

S - Hop aromas jump out of the glass. Juicy grapefruit and other citrus along with some floral hops. Very sweet fruity aroma with a bit of bitter notes. Base malt provides a background but doesn't provide much aroma.

T - Similar to the nose. Wonderful hoppy flavor with a lot of juicy grapefruit and orange along with some other fruity flavors. Slightly bitter on the back of the taste. Mid sip, some more of the floral flavors come out.

M - Light to medium body with good carbonation. Pretty crisp with a nice refreshing finish.

D - Wonderful hop flavors with a nice balance between sweet and bitter citrus and nice floral hints. Very easy to drink and refreshing.

Notes: Had this on tap at The Sanctuary. Wonderful hoppy IPA. Great flavors, especially fruity flavors. Another wonderful beer by Toppling Goliath, these guys keep impressing me.

On tap at Sanctuary, served in a shaker pint.
Review from written notes.

Golden Nugget has a bright clarity, true to it's namesake. Shiny orange with yellow gold edges. A thin cap of white foam forms a tight head on the surface, with tiny rounded arcs of lacing left in the glass. Halfway through the glass, there's a bit more lacing in concentric rings on the sides. Trails of carbonation visible.

Pungent, resiny hop aroma, almost catty. Deep citrus, fresh sliced oranges and grapefruit, weedy florals, dandelion. Very fresh and aromatic.

Flavors of bitter pink grapefruit, leafy green botanicals, hint of pale malt lends a touch of caramel, lingering bitter finish with potent hop resin. Medium bodied, finishes dry and bitter, clean and sessionable, no flaws. A great American IPA, true to style. Probably the best from Iowa i've tried. Would love to see this in 6 packs or spend an afternoon sharing a growler of this.

Had on tap a second time at Toppling Goliath

A-Golden straw with a touch of haze, decent head and extraordinary lacing

S-A touch of peach and grapefruit, intriguing

T/M First taste is nice, bitter grapefruit and a bit sweet.A touch creamy at first, but with a bitterness that is not to be unexpected for the style

A very good IPA and I can see why it is a local favorite.
