Taste: spiced juicy grapefruit hops, dry clean finish. Same with the nose. Gold hue, hazy, with a white head and some lace. medium body. For all the IBUs this not bitter which I like. 100 IBUs

My kind of NEIPA. One with some bitter bite. Could actually use a touch more malt but other than that I really like this. If IPAs of any sort are your thing give this one a try.

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a 22 fl oz bottle on July 18, 2018. Brewed with Galaxy hops. Some nice citrus, peach and passion fruit aromas and flavors.

Poured a super cloudy yellow, with some faded white foam, but had a couple of pulpy chunks that took away from look. Smell was full of dank hops, lime and pineapple. Taste was an adventure of going between the bitter, dank, and dripping wet hops, and the hazy fruits of pineapple, guava, orange, pine, and a big squeeze of lime at the end of every taste. Great textures from hops and haze, but could be a little less carbonated.

Pours a opaque matte orange color. Thick two finger white head dissipates steadily as it collapses in on itself. No lacing is left behind.

Aroma is a pungent fruity aroma with notes of mango, orange, pineapple, and peach. There are also notes of a cracker malt and some grassiness but these are subdued compared to the other aromas.

Taste is not at all what you'd expect given that fragrant aroma. Taste has notes of orange, pineapple, and tons of grass and alfalfa. Cracker or pilsner malt backbone is present. On the dry side with no sweetness. Strong bitterness on the back end builds and then lingers on the palate. Borders on astringent.

Feel is light to medium bodied. Moderately carbonated. Lingering dryness on the finish.

Not Toppling Goliath's best offering. The bitterness is just off in this with the other flavors in the profile. I won't be picking this one up again.
