Notes / Commercial Description:
This spectacularly golden, medium bodied IPA was crafted from a winning combination of Golden Promise malt and Nugget hops. Fall in love with the big hop aroma of our Golden Nugget as it mingles with fragrances of citrus and evergreen, followed by a floral sweetness. Tropical fruit flavors entice your taste buds before immediately captivating you with a bold, hop forward taste and a pleasant bitterness in the finish.

BBD 111018 Easy drinking brew. Good tropical flavors initially. Resin builds throughout and lingers late. Very tasty. Like to try the Imperial version. Thanks Kevin L.

My second Toppling Goliath beer and another that is over rated in my opinion. Good pour, average nose and palate, nice mouthfeel but overall just meh. I do like the grassiness in the finish but just doesn't work as a whole. Glad I got to try this but nothing I will seek out again.

Can from Gold's in Middletown.

A hazy orange with a dense, white head with good retention and lacing this looks solid. The nose is cooked cereal, pine, mango, grapefruit juice, honey and a little grass. The palate opens with cooked grain, corn, mild bitterness with pine, grapefruit, honey and wheat. Golden Promise is a great malt but not for an American IPA. Notes of pearl barley and bulgur are present. Grassy as well. Mildly sweet on the finish with a mild hop flavor, this is disappointing. Completely lacking in a cogent hop expression, this is more like wort than it is beer.

Canned on 06/21/18
Soft slightly hazy golden with 1/2 finger off-white foamy head.
Pineapple, grapefruit, honeysuckle, and lemongrass are predominant
Flavor is more citrus and pineapple forward with a clean pale malt background.
Softer carbonation gives this beer a smoother feel, body is light-medium.
I enjoyed this beer although it is a level behind PseudoSue in TG's repetoire.

Golden color with a thick head with decent retention and leaving some laces.
Aroma with notes of mango, pine, green tea, pineapple, lemon and cantaloupe melon.
Flavor with notes of pine, grapefruit, resin, cantaloupe melon, tangerine-lime, spices, wood, flowers and slightly toasted malts. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Green 45 IBUs that are very present and lingers.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 6.8% is absent.
Hoppy and well executed American IPA that starts citric, then green going earth-resiny with just a few muffled tropical notes.
