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.

Tasted in a pint glass from draft at Consume on April 26, 2018. Look is hazy golden orange with a white head and lingering lacing. Smell and taste is tropical fruit. Feel is creamy and smooth.

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.
