Poured from 22 oz bottle from the fridge into my Duvel tulip. Though I have packed up all of my plates, dishes, and cups for my upcoming move, I still have eight tulips in my cupboards to choose from. Priorities.
A: Pours a really nice golden orange color with a finger's worth of white head that fades gradually to a soapy halo along the sides of the glass with even fewer remnants as a film. With the higher ABV, the lack of head retention isn't a surprise.
S: Hit with mango and pineapple right up front. A hint of weed mixed in there that asserts itself even more after I picked up on it. The more I smell it, the more dank it seems.
T: A lot of those tropical fruits I was picking up in the nose are making their presence known on the palate. A ton of the same mango and pineapple juiciness. Wow.
M: For a beer with this ABV, this drinks like a much lighter brew. The carbonation is spot-on and there is no drying effect like the one I get from other more bitter IPAs. Very well done.
O: Though I have only had three Toppling Goliath beers, it isn't a stretch of the imagination to think that these guys could be the next big thing. Having been spoiled with both San Diego and Vermont beers based on my connections to both coasts, this could be a great substitute for the guys in the middle.

Thanks for opening this with me, VaTechHopHead!
Clear, bright, vibrant dark orange. Moderately-sized white head of large bubbles. Ribbons and irregular lines of lacing down the glass. Very pretty IPA.
Incredible aroma, and my favorite aspect of this beer. If I didn't know any better, I would suggest this was definitely brewed with Nelson hops, and perhaps some Citra. Apparently, this is a Mosaic-hopped DIPA, and I am a fan. Grapefruit, sweet cracker, juicy citrus, and a bit of dank. An incredibly, hop-forward, succulent, juicy, hop experience.
The flavor is similar to the aroma with lots of accompanying bitterness as well. The juicy and bitter citrus notes combine very nicely with the bold bitterness. Some sweet Animal Cracker cookie sweetness complements as well.
Medium to near-full bodied for the style with moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean flavors.
This one goes down easy. This is a delicious IPA that rivals the best San Diego puts out.

This beer rocks! It's cloudy orange to yellow body is full of hoppy details & packed with citrus! There's a great sweet note from the malts & it's feels so good in your mouth you almost want to chug it! This is a perfect beer in my opinion & you need to get your hands on it if you can. Delicious!
