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.

If I was beer this would be me. I love love love this stuff. I can’t wait until kegs are available. I used to drive growlers home 150 miles just to have some on hand. Excellent flavor, color, and the taste is the perfect balance of citrus and bitter. Hangs on the palate for a long time and stays tasty. OVERALL I have to blow this rating to the top - I think this will be the only one I ever rate this high.

Gold with frothy white head. Very pleasant citrus hop aroma. Taste- a unique blend of herbal pine, tropical fruit and citrus. Notes of bitter orange peel, sweet marmalade, lemon zest, lime, mango and pine tar. Luscious IPA. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Extręmement gazonné, citronnelle et des céréales miellées assez fortes pour supporter un fardeau de saveur difficile ŕ contenir. Un tour de force d’équilibre entre la céréale et la verdure.

Bottle. The color is a fainter vibrant yellow orangish. The aroma is amazing, the hops is so strong and inviting. The taste is a little too piney for me compared to aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marsiblursi (3042) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2015
(Bottle) Pours golden with a white head. The aroma holds floral, earthy, light grassy and light citric hops with stable bready malt. The flavour light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of grass, grapefruit, minerals, some flowers and bread. The mouthfeel is clean and malty round with a medium carbonation. Perfect, lingering bitterness. Medium bodied.

From notes. This was shared at a tasting put on by @mikem409 on November 7. 22 oz bomber. The pour is a beautiful orangey gold with a smaller white head and some gorgeous lacing clinging to the glass. The aroma has a lot of good citrus and tropical fruits. There is a definite grapefruit to it and a solid pineyness happening. The flavor is just as great. There is a great citrus zest, and some pineapple and peach, like a fruit cocktail. Really good. There is also a solid resin and bitter hop happening which is awesome! The mouth feel is just about perfect. Light, but greatly carbonated with a perfectly coating velvetiness. The aftertaste is lingeringly bitter and piney, with some lighter fruit undertones. Just great!

Poured from bottle into tulip. Transparent golden color, with short soapy head that leaves big bubbles behind after it dissipates. Huge piney aroma, straight out of the bottle. Some tropical fruit flavors and sweetness in the front, with a nice, exactly appropriate pine flavor in the finish. Medium-full body, with a smooth, almost creamy feel. Overall, another awsome beer from Toppling Goliath. Really a great beer.

onceblind (4698) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Brilliant clear golden with a foamy, creamy light beige head. Big floral resin nose with an earthy leafy wonderfulness and sweet citric hop undertone with a wee bit of earthy caramalt. Smooth semisweet flavor with some beautiful leafy floral hop tones fresh from the bine, a bit of resin, a smidge of Orange citrus and rind, some caramelly pale ale malts, and a light herbal finish. Really lovely.

Bottle from unknown via Patrick. Pours a surprisingly pale straw, little bit of head. Aroma complex yet well balanced, tangerine, pineapple, some graham cracker, floral, guava. Body lively at first but with a delicate resinous to the finish that increases to become surprisingly bold. Well done.
