Very hazy gold. Nose is sweet, with pine, pineapple, grass, herb, mixed fruit and citrus, slightly dank. Herbs are even stronger in the taste, and it's fairly bitter.

Gold with slightly orange tinting. Exceptionally hazy complexion and heavy lacing. There’s a fingernail of eggshell white on top. Massive citrus hop aroma along with pineapple. I’m tasting very juicy pineapple and citrus. This is like drinking straight fruit juice. The mouth is very smooth and refreshing.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy, dark yellow/orange, ample white head. Really great looking beer, looks like it is glowing. Light, malty hop aroma. Very unique hop flavor - citrus and tropical with a light touch of dankness. Unique like Jai Alai (doesn’t taste like it, but very unique and different). Solid malt backbone adds a caramel / toffee depth to it. Carbonation is appropriate. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall a very nicely executed hoppy pale ale, loads of flavor for 5.3%, was able to drink two easily.

Just a delicious highly enjoyable smooth and balanced hazy citrusy New England style Pale Ale. I could drink this until I regretted it if I allowed myself! Look is like orange honey. Smell is orange tangerine. Taste follows nose. I love this. Starting to get Toppling Goliath cans in New York, hope this is offered in cans here at some point.

Pours a cloudy light golden straw color with white lacing. Smell was fruity tropical hops. Taste had prickly fruity hops of mango,orange,apple and grapefruit very little malts with a lingering soft bite of hops. Mouth fell smooth with a dry finish. This IPA had loads of delicious prickly hops very aromatic and tasty.
