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.

On tap at Blackstone restaurant in Iowa City.

Ap - pours a super hazy, orange color with about a 1/2 inch white head. Looks absolutely fabulous. I honestly don't know if a have seen a prettier beer.

Ar - citrus specifically orange, pine, has a sweet malt backbone

T - tastes just like it looks and smells. Super orange, citrusy and lightly piney hops meld perfectly with the sweet malt backbone.

M - nice carbonation, nice consistency, medium bodied

O - another slam dunk from TG, these guys make some of the best IPA's and PA's I've ever had. Super glad I got to try this seasonal offering before it's gone. For me the huge citrus flavor might even make this one better than Pseudosue. I would love to a side by side tasting sometime.

Draft pour into a nonic glass at Red's Alehouse in North Liberty, IA.
5% abv according to the beer menu

A: Hazy, medium golden color with one finger of diminishing white foam head. Moderate lacing remains on the glass.

S: Rich hops combine grapefruit juice with ripening tropical fruit. Breadiness is scant, just barely detectable, nearly concealed by volatile hops qualities. Very clean.

T: Begins nearly dry, with balanced toasty pale malt and assertive mixed citrus hop aromatics that demonstrate added brightness with the help of energetic citric acidity that fills the mouth. Hops flavors change in quality but not intensity during the middle, becoming more piney and herbaceous. The finish is comparatively mild, a little more earthy with a hint of spicy bitterness.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, acidic on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: This beer might as well be referred to as 'hop punch'--it exemplifies Toppling Goliath's mastery of applying hops flavors to pale ales. Unlike the few others encountered, this pale ale showcases qualities that appear more mainstream than experimental (although there has to be a certain experimental spirit at work any time dry-hopping of this magnitude is performed in a commercial setting.) Top-shelf all the way, save for looks; on the order of Alpine Hoppy Birthday or Strand 24th Street.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Slightly hazy, golden orange color. Great, firm, smooth, creamy, pearly white head. Great retention with a nice lacing left.

S - Very hoppy with plenty of citrus, tropical fruit, and lemon zest. A touch of sweet malt. The more I smell, the more citrus, sweet, juicy fruit I get. Very nice and hoppy with just enough malty balance.

T - Similar to the nose. Quite hoppy but fairly low in the bitterness. Slightly sweet, juicy and citrus hops. Grapefruit, tropical fruit and lemon zest being the strongest. Enough malt to provide balance which really allow the hops to jump out even more. Great balance.

M - Medium body with a nice level of carbonation. Smooth and creamy that just slides down my throat.

D - Very easy to drink APA/IPA. Loads of hoppy goodness with a great balance. Very refreshing and delicious. I want another now.

Notes: Blurs the line between APA and IPA, but as long as it's delicious I don't really care what it's called. Great balance with plenty of hoppy goodness. What I expect from IPAs from TG, great balance with a malt backbone that really allows the hops to shine. Refreshing, tasty, and all around a great beer to sip on.
