this one is a real treat from the tap, less intense on the hop front i think than some of their more well known brews, but every bit as good in terms of overall quality. warrior hops i think, less familiar, and maybe less pungent and distinct than say the citra or the nelson they focus on, but i think the base suits it, with a fair degree of pale wheat (i must assume), and a lower sweetness, letting the richness f the hop flower take care of that balancing act. pale yellow in color too, light for an ipa, and the abv is according, similarly low, which i think helps in a lot of ways. this is almost a session ipa, brilliant in its hopping, huge in its flavor, real different, yet conforming and drinkable in the conventional sense. maybe the least unique beer from these guys, but it doesnt waver in the least as far as quality goes. love these guys, well deserved place they have now near the top of the hierarchy...

Juicy hop profile. Very dank and weedy. A nice citrus and tropical fruit flavor. Pineapple and papaya. Earthy with a bready malt backbone. Bitter and sticky. Ends with a hop resin aftertaste.

Overall, another solid ipa from TG. Never disappointed with these guys.

22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy deep orange. Almost murky. Medium white head with very nice lacing.

Smell - Hops are resiny and dank. A little grapefruit. Sweet pale malt.

Taste - Grapefruit. Toasted malt. Caramel and doughy sweetness. Grassy bitter finish alone with a touch of spiciness.

Mouthfeel - Feels heavier than a sub-6%IPA. Low carbonation. A little sluggish.

Overall - Another great IPA from Toppling Goliath. Less conventional than the other citrus bombs they make.
