Pours hazy, gold in color, with 1/3 inch head. Taste is big pineapple juice, apricot, and starfruit. Juicy, sticky, medium bodied, slightly bitter. Makes for a good and tropical ipa. Could do several of these.

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.
