Slightly hazy, rich golden color, two finger head poured into a tulip glass. Bright tropical fruit, orange, tangerine, and just a hint of molasses cookie aromas. Flavors of tangerine, tart pineapple and orange with some hops. Smooth light to medium bodied feel.

I don't what it is about living in an area that it's damned hard to find certainly breweries offerings. Toppling Goliath is one of the breweries that just doesn't make it to central and eastern Florida. So when I head to Ft. Myers I try to scope out PseudoSue and this time I got some. VERY nice beer and well worth the "hunt" to get to some.

Poured from 16oz can into Seidel Mug. Canned on December 6th 2017.

L: Hop hazy yellow, half a finger of white head appears and slowly dissipates into an island of foam with a thin ring.

S: Definitely a citra showcase here, tons of tropical fruit like mango and grapefruit and pineapple. Wonderful aroma. One of the best aromatic beers I have experienced.

T: Oh yeah. This beer has not disappointed thus far. Wonderful flavor profile and this is why I prefer single hopped beers. Simplicity can be elegant. Like the aroma there is lots of mango and pineapple and grapefruit.

F: Light, crisp and a lingering sweet fruity note.

O: Simply superb. The range the citra shows off lends an air of complexity while remaining simple and as earlier expressed, elegant. Wonderful.

Canned 12/06/17, consumed 1/12/18.

Pours slightly misty gold with a nice solid head.

Pleasant citrus aroma with a little bit of pine and floral backing.

Taste is tangy, juicy citrus with grass and pine hops rounding it out.

Mouthfeel is medium with solid carbonation and bitterness and finishes dry. Does seem lighter than an IPA.

Overall a very tasty pale ale that is both tastier and lighter bodied than a lot of IPAs out there.
