Papaya, peach, lychee, but all with a rotten edge. Don't really care for this.

Overrated. Way too grassy for me.

Sorry, I just did not get this one. I love Toppling Goliath brews generally, but this was a slight disappointment.

Disappointed in this one. It tasted like an old pale ale. The hops seemed like they were faded and the malts were dominant. TG has made a lot of great pale ales and IPAs but for me, this one was off.

Possible that this was not an ideally fresh bottle, and would certainly like to try again.

L: Light orange yellow with a bit of cloudiness and a head that lingers
S: smells of hoppy citrus mainly. Nice boozy smell underneath.
T: taste doesn't follow the nose. Big alcohol and onion in this one. the juicyness comes underneath.
F: a bit sticky and medium carbonation.

O: this is different from the other TG DIPAs I have had. Still has that citrus flavor but take more of a backseat to other flavors. Pretty solid.
