That exceptional TG mouthfeel, citrusy, crisp, and refreshing. A definite treat, and a great example of a quality wheat IPA. Grab a bottle if you can find one!

Looks wonderful. There's a spicy smell and taste to this beer, but I assume that's from the wheat. Hops are on point. Loved this beer.

Poured from 22-ounce bottle into a Riedel stemless champagne glass. Hazy, very pale golden color, with a thick white head that hangs around seemingly forever. Lots of thick tiger-striped lacing. The pale color belies the huge aromas and flavors of this beer. Complex hop profile features grapefruit, lemon, mango, peach, and citrus zest. Solid malt backbone provides balance and a touch of sweetness. Dry finish, with loads of grapefruit-pith bitterness and a hint of tartness lingering on the palate. This is a delightful beer, delicious and easy drinking. Bravo!

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.

Poured from 16oz bottle.

L: Beer pours a cloudy golden color with one finger of white head that disappates quickly. No lacing.

S: Nose is citrus, lemon peel, honey, grapefruit.

T: Taste is very refreshing. This would be a great summer beer. Light, crisp with fruity notes, there is a hoppy dryness to the wash down.

F: light, refreshing, tangy.

O: Great, refreshing example of a Pale wheat ale. This is right there with FFF gumballhead. More hoppy, but just as refreshing. Very good.
