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.

On tap at the Root Note in La Crosse, WI.

A - Straw/amber with a frothy 2-finger head. Great lacing, some sediment.

S - Beautiful grapefruit and mango backed by pale malt. The people sitting next to me at my table instantly commented on the scent when the glass was set down. This is a very aromatic ale.

T - More grapefruit, apricot, and lingering pine... the hops make a pronounced appearance but don't overwhelm, just add the bitterness of the grapefruit.

M - Very rich and creamy, but crisp, medium carbonation.

O - I love this APA! The floral hops, tropical flavor, and richness make it one of the best beers I've had, and another spot-on offering from Toppling Goliath. I'm very excited about this brewery.

22 oz. bottle:

Pours clouded golden with a thin head. Strands of lacing stick

The smell is of a robust hop explosion. The powerful aroma came through upon opening the bottle. It has a wonderful citric aroma - grapefruit, orange and mango.

The taste is of bitter citric and tropical fruits. A subtle malt backing has a cracker-like character. It balances the hops while showcasing the citra hops. A touch of pepper mixes in in the long finish.

The body is appropriate for a pale ale that is on the fuller side of the spectrum. Overall, it is smooth despite a bite to it.

A great show of citra hops. A hoppy pale ale, for sure. Not harsh though there is a bit of a bite. A very enjoyable APA.
