Poured a yellow pale color with a fluffy white head that quickly rose to the top. The aromas were kind of mild - just some mango and a little citrus. The flavors were lacking something. Not a lot of malt to appreciate, no richness or sweetness. The hops hit you but it's weak. There's mild earthiness and tropical fruit. But it's short-lived and the beer finished quickly in the mouth. Overall this is a light IPA. Even for a pale ale, this would be boring in comparison. I guess considering its Toppling Goliath, I had higher expectations. No bottle date at the time of purchase and no ABV on bottle. I can only assume what is listed on BA.

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.
