A - Bright golden orange color with an average sized, tight, creamy, smooth, white head. Average retention with a decent lacing left over.

S - What I tend to expect from a Toppling Goliath single hopped IPA. A slight bready malt backbone with the hops jumping out of the glass. Strong citrus hops with a faint spiced herbal/floral aroma.

T - Similar to the nose. A nice malt backbone that allows the hops to shine. Citrus and a spiced herbal/floral hop flavor. A surprising bitterness toward the finish.

M - Medium body with slightly below average carbonation. Has more of a slick/oily feel.

D - I had no problem polishing off my glass. Nice balance with nothing being too strong. A touch on the bitter side but nothing too intense.

Notes: Similar to other TG single hop IPAs with a nice malty backbone that allows the hops to shine. Nothing spectacular or anything jumping out that will really make you crave this, but a well crafted, easy to drink IPA. A little more bitter than I expected but nothing too intense. Another nice IPA by Toppling Goliath.

On tap at the Root Note in La Crosse.

A - Rich cider color. Very little head or lacing, but I've poured Toppling Goliath IPAs from a pitcher with beautiful 2-finger head, so I think the bartender could have built it more.

S - Citrus and pine with earthy undertones.

T - Bold grapefruit and a little bit of alfalfa. The bitterness lingers on the roof of your mouth on the finish. A bit sweet for an IPA.

M - Medium weight, but crisp and easy to drink. Medium carbonation.

O - Toppling Goliath has a strong grip on their IPAs, and 1492 is no exception. I've been following them as new taps are added in La Crosse and I'm excited to plan a trip to visit them soon!
