Mosaic, Sabro, Simco, and Amarillo hops join forces to create a bouquet of tropical citrus and pineapple aromas. This bold, hop-forward IPA captivates the senses as you raise a glass in tribute to lord NugMo. May he bless your taste buds with a bounty of flavor.

Its a very oaty looking pour from a pint can into a clear glass Imperial pint mug. It's got that somewhat bright, but also murky apricot-amber color and a foamy head touched with a hint of the color. There's plenty of carbonation and as for the foam, there are worse. Besides, it receded quickly. The smell is faintly reminiscent of oatmeal grown cold. Whatever hops within can only be considered trace. The tasting begins with soft and sweet flavor, maybe like caramel or butterscotch. Then comes the delightful surprise. This turns into a hopfest, from the transitioning middle to the strong hop presence at the finish. Never too sweet, but perhaps a little fruity at first, this ends dryly earthy and then piney. Something that wasn't expected from its aroma. Flaws are its lack of head, glass lacing and a malt body that can stand up to the array of hops. But the hoppy treat here is enough to give this a recommendation.

Looks great, but taste is harsh, and overcarbonated. Lots of pineapple flavor, no real nose to speak of, but what's there is almost sour smelling and nondescript. Not a fan. Generally I think Toppling Goliath is overrated as a brewery, I've not found one I was psyched about yet.

Straw yellow in color with a hazy complexion l. There’s a quarter inch of frothy off white on top. The aroma is of tangerine. I’m tasting citrus and lime. The mouth is very light and smooth.

NUGMO pours an orange juice look and color. A monster of a head. The aroma is citrus, grapefruit and very acidic. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, pineapple and some slight bitterness and a little acidic. Nugmo is smooth with that hint of bitterness that lays gently on the tongue. Overall a very good IPA. Juice Bomb.
