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.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a bright and hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of white head that settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A huge ripe and fruity hop dominated aroma with big hints of citrus fruit. Citrus hop scent with hints of orange peel, lemon zest, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and melon. Also some earthy and spicy hop hints of pine resin. Soft pale malt presence with some hints of cracker, biscuit, and yeast. A really good hoppy scent.

Taste: Like the aroma, a very fruity and ripe explosion of hops with big notes of citrus fruit. Upfront taste of citrus hops with big notes of orange peel, lemon, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, melon, and passion fruit. Earthy and herbal hops with notes of pine resin and a little grass. Background malt presence with notes of cracker, biscuit, and yeast. A great juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and fairly oily with a drying finish.

Overall: Another great hoppy ale from Toppling Goliath. Very good mix of citrus hop flavors throughout.
