Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of off white head which settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with a scent of citrus, pine, and wheat. Upfront scent of tropical hops with some orange peel, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, and mango. Earthy hop scent of pine resin and grass. Malt scent of wheat, grains, and cracker with some yeast and honey sweetness. A very good aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hop driven taste with notes of citrus, pine, and wheat. Big presence of tropical hops with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple, mango, and lemon zest. Bready malt notes of wheat, grains, and cracker along with yeast. Some honey like sweetness. A really good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and oily with a drying finish.

Overall: Another great hop driven brew from Toppling Goliath. Good citrus and pine notes with a nice presence of wheat.

A - Pours a clear golden color color with a small white foamy head.
S - Aroma is citrus and earthy, almost like a saison.
T - The citrus flavor is subdued. Flavor is earthy and grassy. Very little bitterness.
M - Light mouth feel, average carbonation.
O - The light feel makes this come off as a Pale Ale. Still, I like it. Would be awesome at a ball game in the summer.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 22oz. bomber into Tree House stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Outstanding looking beer from the beginning to the very last drop. Nose is lemon, citrus and grapefruit. Vibrant but a little mellow. Flavors are on point though. Taste is citrus, lemon zest, fresh grass and pine. Again, fresh, lively and refreshing. But pretty plain. Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and foamy on the palate and carbonated going down. Quenching finish. Real easy to drink.

Pretty good beer overall and the whole bomber goes quickly. That being said, its an interchangeable beer that doesn't really leave an impression. Worth trying but not revisiting.
