Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a big two finger off white head that slowly settles into a thin creamy patch.

Smell: A very juicy and dank hop driven aroma with a scent of tropical fruit and pine. Citrus hop scent of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, melon, guava, and papaya with some pineapple and peach. Earthy hop scent of pine resin and grass. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker with some yeast. A little honey like sweetness as well. A very good juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a really juicy and dank hop dominated taste with notes of tropical fruit and pine. Upfront citrus hop notes of orange peel, mango, grapefruit, guava, papaya, and melon along with some peach and pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine and grass. Backing malt notes of caramel, cracker, and grains along with yeast. A little honey like malt sweetness. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Juicy, oily, and fairly sticky.

Overall: Another great juicy Double IPA from Toppling Goliath. Very nice citrus fruit and pine resin flavor.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange body. Nice white head. Chunky thick collar.

Smell - Doesn't smell the way I expected it to. It's very tropical, but has a must or mineral aroma too. Kinda detracts. Doesn't smell that sweet.

Taste - Much more dynamic. Orange, some piney hops, lots of tropical fruit. Grainy and a little bitter in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe pushing medium heavy. Creamy carbonation texture.

Overall - Wasn't enthused at first, but this really grew on me. Very tasty.
