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.

Growler: Thanks, Corey! Pretty cloudy, burnt orange color with a large, foamy, chunky eggshell head that lasts for days & leaves tremendously sticky lacing all the way down. Aroma of floral notes, juicy grapefruit, citrus peel, general pungent fruitiness, light pineapple/tropical notes & a nice kiss of honey covered cracker malts. Taste is crisp with a sustaining, yet smooth bitterness. Hop leaves covered in tame white pepper, flower pedals, grapefruit flesh, mild pine, more pineapple & tropical fruit notes, a hint of bready malt, & mild hoppy bitter tingle that lingers in the aftertaste. Drinkable & certainly crushable with almost no sign of the 7.2% ABV. Very nice IPA.

jbruner (2916) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bomber with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace, a few floating chunks. Aroma of sweet oxidized malt over slight fruity hop. Taste is less oxidized, nice hop malt balance, smooth and creamy. Soft carbonation, bit of booze, solid beer if not old.

Jow (2659) - New York, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Tap at brewery. Very good but right after pseudo sue seems subdued. Hazy gold. Nose of florals and tropical fruit. Tastes of florals, resinous, grapefruit, light honey dew. Low to medium palate. Very crushable and tasty.

piscator34 (2114) - 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 (375) - 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.

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.
