Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This single hop ale showcases the Citra hop. Named for the largest T-rex fossil ever discovered, she roars with ferocious aromas of grapefruit, citrus, mango and evergreen. Delicate in body with a mild bite in the finish.

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into my Hill Farmstead glass. Was very excited to get this in the mail on Friday and glad to be able to crack it tonight.

A: Pours a light orange with a soapy-looking white head that sticks nicely to the sides of the glass. I assume I would have gotten a larger head if I had poured more aggressively, but I'm happy with this so far.

S: This beer definitely showcases the Citra hop well. Tons of grapefruit and other citrus, which is just how I like my hoppy beers. Obviously very similar to Zombie Dust, which is a compliment in and of itself. It also smells a bit lighter or maybe cleaner than a stronger IPA would be, which makes sense given the lower ABV.

T: I have to say that I picked up more of the hops on the nose than the palate, but I am by no means let down. Still a lot of the same citrus from the aroma. Reminds me of a lighter Sucks, which is definitely a good thing.

M: So easy to drink. I wish it was a bit warmer today because I think this would be the perfect summer beer. The hops are big and in charge, but not to the point that your palate will be destroyed. Plus, after having this one, you won't want to move on to another beer.

O: I was really pleased with Naughty Temple and PseudoSue only served to raise my expectations for Toppling Goliath. This is an amazing beer, no doubts about it. You see it, you buy it.
