COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spectacularly golden, medium bodied IPA was crafted from a winning combination of Golden Promise malt and Nugget hops.

Fall in love with the big hop aroma of our Golden Nugget as it mingles with fragrances of citrus and evergreen, followed by a floral sweetness. Tropical fruit flavors entice your taste buds before immediately captivating you with a bold, hop forward taste and a pleasant bitterness that lingers in the finish.

piscator34 (2093) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. Gold in color with slight haze and medium carbonation. Aromas are of pine cone and kumquat. Flavors are of pine, wild grasses, and sour orange. Medium bodied with a substantial bitterness. A bit more old school in terms of hopping than the other hoppy Topling Goliath beers I have tried, but still very nice.

BreWedge (367) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle via Piscator34. Pours a hazy yellow/orange. I overpowered as there was suspended sediment throughout. Aromas of pine and citrus and a little funk. Tastes are definite resin and citrus but also a little on the sweet side, reminds me a little bit of a grapefruit/orange juice combination. Nice astringent bite with a medium bitter finish. Nice summer beverage.

marcus (7323) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle shared by My friend Eric at Capitol Beer. Pours cloudy golden with a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a lot of piney bitterness. A ton of flavor that sticks to the palate.

Pours amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is barely discernable pine. Taste is the complete opposite - coniferous bitterness and maybe passion fruit with a chalky ’thickness’ to it. Pine flavors pick up at the mid and then that chalky hoppiness transforms to a creamy bitterness for the finish. I see why Toppling Goliath has such high acclaims.

Dr_Fellini (778) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Thanks Drew! Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden light orange color with an off white head. Aroma is big fleshy fruit hops, touch of citrus and pine. Flavor has a nice fruity, piney hop character that finishes into a sweet fruity goodness. Very tasty.

pushkinwow (2218) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
Bomber from Thomas Hall. Hazy golden pour with a creamy off white head. Lots of tropical aromas, grass, grapefruit, warming booziness, bit musty, moderate- body, moderate carbonation, a touch too sweet but still a nice bitterness, smooth, good.

Lubiere (10873) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
A hazed golden ipa with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with grassy floral Hops, resinous and catty, interesting mix, complex and beautiful. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, lightly catty notes, light alcohol warmth, very nice and smooth.. Thanks Stephen! Bottle shared with Puhskinwow.
