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

Appearance: Pours clear and amber, with golden edges; the bubble show builds an impressive head; good retention and lacing

Smell: Floral, with tangerine, pineapple, lemon and slightly grassy tones

Taste: A bit of shortbread malt opens and lingers but the hops quickly take over, bringing tangerine, lemon and grassy tones, with the pineapple developing after the swallow; moderate bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Although this beer is no Pseudo Sue, it is still quite good and another arrow in Toppling Goliath's claim to be among the world's best in the APA/IPA category

poured 22oz bottle into chalice

A - A clear lighter orange color with a 1.5 finger white head. Thin ring with good amount of lacing coating the glass.

S - Light hops of grass and citrus. Notes of grapefruit, orange, and hints of lemon. Not much for the malts.

T - Lacks much of a malt presence, some caramel sweetness. Flavors of weak citrus include grapefruit, orange, and a bit of lemon. Rather grassy and floral, would be better on a hot day. A bit of bitterness on the finish to keep you interested.

M - Light bodied, crisp and refreshing. A little dryness.

O - Fits the profile of an APA nicely and is enjoyable. Flavors were light, but tasty. A nice one to try, but I will stick with some of their other offerings.
