650ml bottle served in a TG snifter.

Pours a darker stone-fruit colour, full-on hazy with a two finger white head, nice retention and longevity, lots and lots of lacing. Looks just about perfect, like a NE IPA. Smells primarily of juicy grapefruit and to a lesser extent, spicy passion fruit, mild resin, pine, mellow caramel, pale malt sweetness. Pretty appealing nose if you're the type that enjoys the New Zealand hop varietals. Flavour is balanced; caramel, passion fruit, spicy hops, resin, a bit of grapefruit and pine, with a mild-moderate citrus rind bitterness that lingers on the palate for a while. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, easy to drink, a bit lower on the carbonation than expected, and pleasantly bitter, mostly citrus rind and resin. Very nice, not difficult to drink by any means. Overall, a nice IPA by TG, one of their better ones. I may possibly prefer this to zeeLander, which is saying a lot. (917 characters)

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of white head that settles into a thinner creamy layer.

Smell: A juicy and dank hop forward aroma with big hints of citrus fruit and pine. Big upfront scent of ripe hops with citrus fruit hints of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, and tangerine. Big scent of pine resin along with some weed like herbal hints. Soft pale malt backing hints of caramel, cracker, and yeast. A really nice hoppy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a very juicy and earthy hop dominated taste with big notes of citrus and pine. Upfront citrus fruit notes of juicy orange, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, and pineapple. Earthy and herbal hops with some notes of pine resin and grass. Light backing malt notes of caramel, biscuit, cracker, and yeast. A very good hoppy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, creamy, and fairly oily with a drying finish.

Overall: Another great hoppy ale from Toppling Goliath. Big juicy citrus and pine flavors with a moderate bitterness. These guys are masters of hops along with the big West Coast brewers. (1,207 characters)

Thanks to Jeff for this one. Keep delivering the hops my friend! 22oz. bomber into a Carton Boat Beer glass.

Pours a .5 finger foamy white head with poor retention. Beer is a cloudy, dark grapefruit. Lacing is spotty and sparse with little retention. A bit below average actually.

Nose is outrageously aromatic and sweet. Hints of nectarine, tangerine and other sweet citrus fruits. A juicy hop presence floats in the back.

Opens papaya, starfruit and citrus fruit. Some tangerine and orange rind in the middle with a juicy hop presence. Some grapefruit hop bitterness on the finish balanced by a slight cane sugar malt presence. Aftertaste is hoppy with some more rind. Excellent.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and juicy in the mouth and goes down aggressive, prickly and dry. Finishes dry with a sticky, lingering aftertaste. Very drinkable with enough body to carry the flavor.

Certainly one of the more citrus-forward IPAs I've had and I really can't get enough! TG continues to impress me at every turn. (1,035 characters)
