BEER INFO

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

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Collaboration with Tree House Brewing. Originally brewed at TG May 2014.

Midwest meets the East Coast! Our friends from Massachusetts "Tree House Brewing Company" embarked on a twenty hour, 1,200 mile journey across the central United States to collaborate with us on this super hop-saturated Double IPA. We merged a grist of Pale and Caramel malts with a very liberal dose of Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops to produce a soft but extremely potent creation. Your nose will be greeted with aromas of bright citrus and tropical fruits before a sip unlocks a flavor much like biting into a ripe juicy orange. A complex bounty of hoppy/fruity flavors continue as a clean citrus bitterness balances things out propelled by tight carbonation and a luxurious mouthfeel. We find "David" to be absolutely delightful. . . the product of our respective brewer's dedication to an uncompromising, delicious product. David is fleeting and ephemeral, so enjoy him fresh with a friend and forget about life for a while.

Bottled May 2014; drank 6/7/14 @ the Kid's.

Semi-opaque yellow/orange hue.

Bright white head; strong lace.

Pineapple, mango & fresh marijuana nose. Bold!

Medium mouthfeel.

Pineapple, pine, mango & fresh marijuana flavors. A nice mix of sweet citrus & hop bite; a touch too dry but nearly perfect.

Growler from Tree House that was generously IP traded from another BA'er who agreed to meet at a Dunkin Donuts location in exchange for a growler of Abner from Hill Farmstead. Gotta find out who that awesome person was, as I didnt set up the trade....
A - Straw, hay, yellow haze. Half inch head.
S - Hops! Mosaic and Simcoe, dripping wet. Has a touch of that familiar Simcoe earthy basement with the CItra/Mosaic balancing it incredibly well.
T - Crisp, floral hops with a perfectly balanced pale malt lingering with every hoppy sip. So juicy, nothing but juicy hop goodness here.
M - Juicy, quaffable.
O - The homer in me loves this beer, as we share the same name. I would put this IIPA up against any in the world. Regrettably have not had a chance to try King Sosus which, by many accounts, is the IIPA of 2014. Again, best IIPA I had in 2014.
