4/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours hazed golden. A thin head stays and leaves lacing.

The smell is of grapefruit with a hint of pine/resin.

The taste is of bitter grapefruit with some pine. A biscuity sweetness rounds it out. Just a touch of warming alcohol comes through. It has a refreshingly dry, long finish.

There is a bit of astringency at the start, but it soon mellows to a smooth texture. I almost lowered the feel slightly, but the carbonation level and the appropriate fullness more than make up for the slight astringency of the first few sips.

This is a pleasant hoppy brew. It showcases the Columbus hops well, with just enough malt to keep it all together. Another well-done hop-forward beer from Toppling Goliath!

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

White head with some lace. Color is a hazed sunset yellow.

Flavor profile: dank and weedy. Very fresh. A bit of an onion flavor. Some floral notes, but not fruity or tropical. Some bready malts.

Mouthfeel: bitter and sticky. Medium bodied. Ends with a little hop resiny flavor.

Overall, a good Colombus hopped ipa. Not overly oniony which is good. Easy drinking.

Serving type: bottle
