BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Toppling Goliath Brewing Company
Iowa, United States
tgbrews.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Deep in the labs at Toppling Goliath, through the vaulted door, down the steps, and past the room labeled “Beware the Leopard” lies a series of experiments long forgotten. The Xhops series - a biological hybrid of many experimental hops. Each color a unique flavor of pale ale. Released throughout 2013 and 2014, this beer begs to make a return, but can you handle it?

Chilled in a snifter

A - hazy amber, pure white head, fades to a persistent half finger lacing

S - piney, mango, predominates, but solid presence of malt

T - crisp and bitter hops, mango, orange follow, and a cracker backbone

M - smooth and crisp, easy drinking

O - Great offering from TG
