Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Zelicious single-hop showcase using the Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand. Delightfully confusing aromas of citrus and mandarin oranges give way to an incredibly complex body of earth tones and marigolds. This is truly unlike any hop you’ve ever tasted.

Bottle as an amazing trade extra. Pours hazy yellow golden with a big fluffy creamy white head. Incredible aroma of pineapple, mango, pine, and hay. Just perfect aroma. Flavor follows with big juicy pineapple and tropical fruits, medium bitter, juicy. Wow. Medium light bodied and incredible flavor for 5.5%. These guys just need to replace every other brewery on the planet so I can drink it all the time. This hit the spot.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Has the Toppling Goliath APA/IPA look - clear amber, bubble show, nice retention/lacing

Smell: Tropical fruit (starfruit, melon, lemon and kiwi) and white wine grapes

Taste: A hint of shortbread malt lingers from start to finish but almost hides in the background as the flavors detected in the aroma take over; there is also a vinous character to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Another excellent beer from Toppling Goliath, albeit the Nelson Sauvin hops take this one in a new direction
