Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Inspiration for our newest Hop Patrol IPA comes from the House of Faun in Pompeii, Italy. At this site, some of the world’s most famous mosaics were preserved under layers of ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. In this fashion, Pompeii IPA preserves and showcases the luxurious taste of the Mosaic hop. This single-hop IPA offers a floral aroma and a truly complex “mosaic” of taste: dark citrus and pineapple flavors, with deep earthy undertones and a persistent bitterness in the finish.

First of all, the label on this beer is a masterpiece. Beautiful.

The beer is amazing as well.

Golden orange color. Off white head with lace. Nice retention.

Flavor profile: Very tropical and juicy. Pineapple, papaya, and mango. Earthy hops. Very green and citrusy.

Mouthfeel: A nice amount of bitterness, but it ends clean. Some grapefruit citrus and hop resiny flavor sticks around in the finish.

A well done ipa. Very enjoyable and definitely up there with the best of them.

L: Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a touch of orang. A night white foamy head on the top.
A: the nose of the mosaic hops comes through with all the tropical smells.
T: the taste is a mixture of tropical fruits with mango and pineapple flavors coming to front.
F: The mouth feel is pleasant and smooth.
O: All in all I would say this is my favorite offering from TG at this point. A great IPA.

Sweet juicy slight pineapple taste. Love the hazy golden orange body. Big citrus aroma.
