Another wonderful hazy dipa from Toppling Goliath. The pour is beautiful with white foam crowning a yellow hazy concoction. The smell is full of hops, with typical hazy fruit filtering up, pineapple, orange, grapefruit, melon, along with hay and wild flowers. The taste has some added honey, earthy tones, and some banana. The feel is light and fluffy. Enjoyed quite a bit, but like other ipas from TG more

Cloudy golden straw pour . Smell is tropical fruit, orange, and pineapple. Taste follows the nose and stays sweet with hints of tropical papaya fruit . Creamy medium body. Bitter aftertaste with sine warming.

22oz bottle served in a big nonic pint. Bottled on 04/27/18.

Pours a hazy pale golden with a big fluffy head that fades slowly and appears to be leaving huge clumps of lacing. Smell is delicious. Tropical and dank.

Taste is tropical, dank, and heavy bitter, in a very pleasing combination.

Mouthfeel is thick but resinous/dry. Overall, this is an excellent beer.

I don’t love this beer as much as everyone else.
There is some kind of wet cardboard flavor coming from the malts that almost make the hops taste old. I think they are going for balance but it doesn’t work for me.
It also finishes super bitter and dry - more like a West coast IPA. Not really a NEIPA except for the look.
On Tap at Rays growler gallery- fresh.
Good beer - not great. Wouldn’t go out of my way

22oz bottle, shared with my friend, Ken. Opaque pineapple juice colored ale with a creamy off-white head. Zesty aroma of citrus and passion fruit. Flavors are passion fruit galore, lemon-lime, grapefruit zest, and guava. Medium body, zesty and tart, moderately bitter finish. Very good NE style DIPA.
