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.

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.
