Had on tap this afternoon at a local joint in La Crosse.

Pourse a good looking goldish orangish color, really nothing to coplain about in the way any beer looks IMO.

Smell is where we get into it. You get tons and tons of citrus fruits, Oranges, Mango, Pinapple and grapefruit, but there is a real dankness to it to.

Same fruits as descibed above hit you the second it hits your lips. You can tell this is a pale and not a IPA, while there may be more hops then your average APA, it has the malt backbone to back it up and have it end clean and nice.

Mouthfeel was, well I did not really notice anything about it, in my book that means it was perfect for a APA.

Here is the deal, if you can get any TG beers on tap in your area then do it immediatley.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 22oz. bomber into a Founders snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a fluffy 2 finger white head with great retention. Lacing is thick and layered with excellent stick. Beer is a slightly cloudy tangerine. Very nice.

Nose is citrus, cane sugar, pine, grassy hop bitterness and some pear. Very aromatic.

Opens pine, citrus, cane sugar, peanut and grass. Apple, pear and orange in the middle with hints of peanut and tree bark. Ends resiny hop bitterness with the same aftertaste. Shockingly good balance.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and quenching going down. Finishes dry with a resiny, sticky aftertaste. Really drinkable.

It's pretty amazing how good all of TG's beers have been. Light Speed is no difference. Awesome balance, great feel and nose and even the look is top notch. Definitely worth having.
