Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Thanks to irish-hawkeye (Reddit) for this one. Shared with rudzud.

Pours a great fluffy creamy almost 2 finger head that fades slowly with nice soapy lacing, hazy orange juice color.

Nose brings tons of dank citrus hops, a simcoe like dank musty grapefruit with citrus resin and pith, dank tropical fruits with papaya, little grassy oily earthy, citrus and kiwi like hops, even a little melon rind, nice pith.

Taste brings a malty sweet start, toasted soft reddish malts but dry. Then hops, a kiwi like tropical fruit mild earthy grassy note, with more dank fruits, tropical mostly, papaya, hint passion fruit, resinous notes, little grapefruit pith again, touch spicy too. Nice dank tropical fruits mostly, linger for a while, nice dank resin on the back end with lingering musty tropical fruits, little bitter earthy spicy hops, big lingering spicy rind, hint of baking spices too.

Mouth is med bod, decent softness, nice carb.

Overall very nice, great hop profile, nice bitterness, dank resin and musty tropical fruits with nice pith and mild citrus, etc.
