A first time for this one. 22 oz bomber and fresh off the truck.

Poured it carefully and got a very cloudy pale yellow beer with beautiful lacing but not much head.
Nose is rather bland but fresh
Taste is nice. A great summer drink with good tartness and lemon. A nice hop profile. I mean a beautiful hop profile. Mouthfeel is rather tingly but ads to the lemon. I really enjoyed this beer.

Pour an effervescent hazed gold with a thumb of pearl colored head. Stays hazy, great head retention & lacing

S: Biscuitty malt & mango

T: Follows the nose, dryness and a little grapefruit as well. A little Passion fruit, mango & dryness as this warms. Finishes dry, citrussy with a little mango

MF: Medium body lively carbonation, good balance

Super easy drinker, nice example of the style

Labeled as a Wheat India Pale Ale. Another Toppling Goliath beer to catch the hazy IPA hype train. No date evident on the bottle but I know it is fresh.

Turbid orange milkshake in appearance. A large head forms with massive amounts of lacing left behind. Does not look as bad as a lot of NE IPAs. Big citrus aroma with a bit of wheat zest in the background. Flavor is weaker than the aroma. Citrus upfront but it falls away all too quickly. Little to back that up. Just a bit of wheat. Incredibly thin body but it is properly carbonated. Just a decent beer and not up to Toppling Goliath standards. Disappointed in the $8 bomber purchase.

Thanks to Todd for sharing this one. Served in a tulip of some sort.

A - White foam settles to wisps, a collar, and specks of lace. Hazy pale straw body, with that characteristic unfiltered wheat look to it.

S - Dank and slightly oniony hops, but with some citrus mixed in for good measure. Amarillo and Citra maybe? Pretty hop forward, with perhaps a touch of toasted grain and wheat in the periphery; not much malt sweetness.

T - The taste is a tiny bit more balanced, with some grain and wheat flavors mingling with lemon, grapefruit, and herbal hops. Moderate bitterness, with a touch of yeasty bread in the finish.

M - Medium body, dry, toasty texture, pleasant lower growler-style carbonation. Some residual hop oils and resins linger.

D - Nice hoppy wheat beer in the mold of Gumballhead. Quite easy to drink, although I could do for a tad less bitterness. Still, on the whole it was quite enjoyable.

Pours a mostly clear yellow/gold color with a fresh white head. Smells of citrus wheat and malt. Taste was very good citrus hops with a lemon wheat bread finish, Mouth feel was crisp and hoppy sweet with lingering hops. Pleasantly surprised by this thought it was very good.

Pale yellow color. White head.

Lemon citrus, wheat and spice, herbal and earthy hops. Some orange peel.

Lighter bodied. A higher amount of carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, a much different tg hoppy beers than the others. Easy drinking on a summer day.

Bomber poured into a snifter.

3.25 A: Well hazed golden yellow with a subtle brown tint. About one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.75 S: Simply marvelous. Sugary and tropical hoppiness in the form of candied mango, pineapple, and orange. Honey, bubblegum, floral and herbalness. Neutral wheat and a soft yeastiness.

4.25 T: Like the nose, hops are running the show. Tropical fruits mentioned above, floral hop flavor, hints of grapefruit and herbalness. Honey, lemon peel, bubblegum, spiciness, and bready yeast.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch bity with just a slight creaminess. Decent, but not great here.

4.0 D: Another super solid beer from TG. They can't really do wrong.

Had on tap at TG brew house

A: fluffy white head that led to excellent lacing. Straw colored, with just a touch of haze

S: very hop forward, a little pine/dank with clear citrus notes. Perhaps a touch of wheat bread in the background

T/M: Taste is similar to nose, which is a very good thing. Hop forward yet still well balanced. A great beer for the season as it is not too filling nor over the top.

O: a wheat ipa from TG? Don't ask questions, just drink and enjoy. You will thank me for it.
