22oz bomber from the 2013 bottling aka super fresh- probably one week old, poured into a FFF teku and quaffed with a friend on 5/5/2013.
Aroma: Holy shit. This beer is full of citrus, pine and floral hoppiness. No question about it, this is awesome. Tons of grapefruit with a smattering of pine and floral scents. I also even smell some honey'd biscuits. The nose is super strong and complex. Excellent!
Colour: Clear, light amber body that pours with a thick 3cm head in my Teku glass. Awesome. It leaves a TON of lacing. It's probably the most laced up beer I've had in the last 3 months. Excellent. It's also got a thick white film and collar on top of the brew. Its certainly an appeziting beer.
Flavour: This is where the money is. Tons of grapefruit, orange zest, pine cones and floral scents up front. There's also the sweet honey maltiness. If there's one beer that definitely has honey biscuits, this is it. Lots of toffee, honey and breadiness. This is a sensory overload of different hoppiness and maltiness. Excellent.
Mouthfeel: Thicker medium bodied brew. Excellent carbonation! Smooth, resinous finish that's strangely dry and refreshing at the same time. Aftertaste is full of citrus and honey, more so than the pine and floral hoppiness. Awesome.
Overall: Holy shit, this could be one of the best DIPAs I've had in a while. We drank this after an Enjoy By 5.17.13 and this is definitely heads and tails above the Enjoy By. It's truly an excellent, complex brew that is a pleasure to quaff. No question about it, Toppling Goliath is the real deal.

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!
