650ml bottle, undated but purchased fresh, poured into a 2017 Toppling Goliath Assassin Teku glass. Enjoyed on 04.15.18, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a very bright copper color, hazy and cloudy with a foamy white head that has nice height and great retention with excellent lacing. The aroma is fantastic, juicy and fresh, lots of citrus and tropical fruits, bright and dank, floral and piney, grassy and weedy green hops, light dough and mineral water. The flavors are excellent, tons of juicy hops, citrusy, tropical with tons of mango and papaya puree, sweet grain but a very dank, nice bitter and earthy counterbalance, lots of pine, grassy and green weedy hops, but a bright floral bouquet helps balance this beer nicely. The mouthfeel is good, coating and creamy, lively texture but so smooth with a medium body and a dry finish.

Verdict: An awesome IPA from Toppling Goliath. Juicy, fragrant, super flavorful and expressive, nicely balanced with a nice bitter backbone that offers some excellent depth. Just a really fine beer.

Bottle poured into a Russian River Brewing Co pub glass

A: Pours hazy golden amber with a creamy off white head that settles to a firm layer and laces beautifully.

S: Lively citrus, bright tropical fruit, hints of stone fruit, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

T: Citrus, orange, white grapefruit, and lemon, tropical fruit, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, apricot, and faint papaya, a touch of pine, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, somewhat soft on the palate.

O: At 7.8% this one is right on the dividing line of IPA vs DIPA. Seems to have a little NE IPA influence softening it up a bit, but it still has some noticeable bitterness. Really tasty.
