On a hot humid day, I stepped into the cool tap room of Toppling Goliath for one of their new hops creations. Thresher is an IPA with wheat. “It’s not a wheat beer. It’s an IPA brewed with wheat added,” as the barmaid Chelsea so carefully explained. The citrus and pine aromas followed by a pleasing taste and light body make Thresher really refreshing.

Thanks to Todd for sharing this one. Served in a tulip of some sort.

A - White foam settles to wisps, a collar, and specks of lace. Hazy pale straw body, with that characteristic unfiltered wheat look to it.

S - Dank and slightly oniony hops, but with some citrus mixed in for good measure. Amarillo and Citra maybe? Pretty hop forward, with perhaps a touch of toasted grain and wheat in the periphery; not much malt sweetness.

T - The taste is a tiny bit more balanced, with some grain and wheat flavors mingling with lemon, grapefruit, and herbal hops. Moderate bitterness, with a touch of yeasty bread in the finish.

M - Medium body, dry, toasty texture, pleasant lower growler-style carbonation. Some residual hop oils and resins linger.

D - Nice hoppy wheat beer in the mold of Gumballhead. Quite easy to drink, although I could do for a tad less bitterness. Still, on the whole it was quite enjoyable.

Had on tap at TG brew house

A: fluffy white head that led to excellent lacing. Straw colored, with just a touch of haze

S: very hop forward, a little pine/dank with clear citrus notes. Perhaps a touch of wheat bread in the background

T/M: Taste is similar to nose, which is a very good thing. Hop forward yet still well balanced. A great beer for the season as it is not too filling nor over the top.

O: a wheat ipa from TG? Don't ask questions, just drink and enjoy. You will thank me for it.
