Completely overrated... Way too sweet, over malted. Lacking a real hoppy bite to round it out

Look: cloudy pineapple color 4F head in a Stone Imperial pint glass.

Aroma: earthy pungent citrus, banana, floral.

Smooth MF.

Smooth citrus taste.

Not too hoppy finish. Tart, pungent.

This beer grows on me as it warms up. I usually drink Pale Ales colder. Very smooth, less carbonated approach.

No dating on the can, but there's a date on the cardboard box the 4 pack is in, 3/28/18. Two and a half weeks old.

Pours a murky orange in the glass with almost no light getting through. Two fingers of off-white rocky head. Tons of tropical fruit right off the bat on the nose, mango, papaya, tangerine, pine, lemon and a strong bitter grapefruit. Taste follows the nose, with also some notes of mint and pale bready malt. Everything balances together very well but the taste is not as impactful as the nose. Medium-light bitterness and dryness. A medium-light body that's super crushable but nothing to write home about. To be honest, this may have been a little too hyped for me. An extremely well done pale ale, but not something I'm _craving_ another of, with all the options in the northeast. It has set the table and gotten everything ready for me to try out King Sue.

Delicious, infant version of king sue but has the same qualities. Juicy, hazy, and well balanced. Get it when you can!

16 oz can dated 3/14 /18 purchased at Town Center. Hazy orange color and hoppy/orange nose. Very flavorful with mango, orange/tangerine and grapefruit coming through along with other citrus in a well-balanced way. Easy drinking and enjoyable. Glad that Toppling Goliath is now distributed in Ma.
