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.

Cool bottle artwork. It looks legit. And not something from a small town Iowa brewery!
Hazy, golden hue with highlights of amber; a bit of chunky yeast sediment was the only “flaw” in this beautiful pale ale. A crown of white foam graces the top of the elixir.
This is the best smell pale ale I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Period. The nose was so vibrant and rich; lemon zest, limes, grapefruit, pungent and yet tropical. The malt is distant… let the hops sing. And they hit the high notes. The aroma is now ingrained in my brain. Simply perfect!
The palate was a letdown… ONLY because the aromas were so strikingly amazing. It is delicious and complex and beast of a pale ale. Orange fresh, mangos, lemon zest, pinnacle, citrus rinds, pith with a simple hint of pine and floral. Devine. Mouthwatering good.
A solid medium in body. Ideal carbonation. Good mouthfeel.
Tasty as hell. Drinkable as hell. A superb pale ale. It’s a legit pale ale… it’s not an IPA labeled a pale ale. It is a real deal hoppy pale ale. Really complex and a showcase of the Citra hops. Worth seeking out.
