COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our favorite styles, this ale is a hop explosion. Light in color, heavily hopped in the kettle as well as conditioned with several unique hop varieties. This creates a beautiful floral/citrusy nose which is balanced well by a smooth and full finish.

A hazy yellow beer with a soapy white head. The aroma is grass, lemon, and funk. The flavor is citrus, floral, and fairly bitter.

Hazy orange amber color with a thick, bright white head. Aroma is reminiscent of candied grapefruit and sourdough. Flavor is crisp citrus bitterness with a little bit of malt at the end. Full bodied and creamy on the palate

Draught at Toppling Goliath. IPA/Double in malt alcohol aroma. Low hop aroma and taste. Decent.

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle shared by Eric. Aroma is bitter grass, some citrus, and caramel malt. Pours light amber with a small white head. Taste is bitter grass, some garden weeds, and a stale biscuit malt. Mouthfeel was bitter and dry despite all the malt taste. All in all, this had the makings of an inbalanced and old IPA.

rondphoto (2044) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 12, 2014
bottle @ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Hazy golden amber color, full 1" white head that stays around, short streaks of lace. Taste is edgy malt that adds strong floral hops in the palate - hops extend to a lingering finish. Very dry, very thirst quenching, very good.

Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. No bottle date. Pours an orangey copper with a white head and a ton of floaties. Crud! Was a bit concerned about age, and was likely right. Aroma has a nice blend of fresh fruit, citrus and pine, led well by the fruit. Taste is of either dead hops or a real muddle of weak pine, some grapefruit and some pineapple. Little malt presence in this one. Light to medium bodied. Finishes fruity sweet and citrusy bitter, in a solid mix. This one was all over the place. Hoping just old, because it could be pretty good if so. Otherwise strange that the nose and finish would be so solid and the rest just blah. 13.4

Pours hazy pale yellow with white head. Good hop aroma and flavor, but a little on the bitter side for me.

CanIHave4Beers (3307) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a hazy yellow with a medium sized white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a touch sweet & a little faint but decidedly hop forward, grassy & weedy like mowing through an overgrown patch. Itís got some nice citrus fruitiness as well.

The flavor is nice enough, pushing the envelope as far as enjoyable bitterness but staying within the threshold for sure. Itís got a nice grassy & fruit forward happiness. The beer does have a touch more sweetness than I would like but again that aspect is pushing the envelope without really going outside of what I find enjoyable in an IPA.

Enjoyable enough thatís for sure.

jmohno (1078) - Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Hazed orange, hop haze,yeast haze. Some light frothy head. Strong citrus grassy aroma. Seems a lot like some noble hops alot character like a grassy skunky pilsner. Full mouth foamy feel, lot of toasted pale malts with some sweetness. Citrus tart. Pretty dry toasty finish. Strong citrus grassy hops and bitter/tartness. Probably too much citrus/grassy for my kind of ipa I go for.
