Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of off white head which settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with a scent of citrus, pine, and wheat. Upfront scent of tropical hops with some orange peel, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, and mango. Earthy hop scent of pine resin and grass. Malt scent of wheat, grains, and cracker with some yeast and honey sweetness. A very good aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hop driven taste with notes of citrus, pine, and wheat. Big presence of tropical hops with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple, mango, and lemon zest. Bready malt notes of wheat, grains, and cracker along with yeast. Some honey like sweetness. A really good taste.

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

Overall: Another great hop driven brew from Toppling Goliath. Good citrus and pine notes with a nice presence of wheat.

L: pours a hazy light gold with a nice white head that lasts with some lacing.
S: it smells juicy with citrus and hoppy just like other TG beers, but smells brighter than others if that make sense.
T: citrus but not as hoppy as I was expecting. Lacking a bitterness at the end also. The wheat style comes through nicely.
F: smooth with a bite of carbonation

O: decent but probably my probably one of my least favorite TG beers I've had. Interesting to have a wheat IPA though

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.

Wow what a beautiful beer. Hazy pale yellow almost has a glow to it with a crown of white head. The smell is pretty muted, light wheat, touch of lemon. Very slight bitterness, goes down extremely smooth wonderful summertime brew.

Bomber poured into a snifter.

3.25 A: Well hazed golden yellow with a subtle brown tint. About one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.75 S: Simply marvelous. Sugary and tropical hoppiness in the form of candied mango, pineapple, and orange. Honey, bubblegum, floral and herbalness. Neutral wheat and a soft yeastiness.

4.25 T: Like the nose, hops are running the show. Tropical fruits mentioned above, floral hop flavor, hints of grapefruit and herbalness. Honey, lemon peel, bubblegum, spiciness, and bready yeast.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch bity with just a slight creaminess. Decent, but not great here.

4.0 D: Another super solid beer from TG. They can't really do wrong.
