Cloudy orange pour with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is huge tropical fruit hops, a little grapefruit, biscuit and toast. Flavor is the same with a really explosive bitter grapefruit and passion fruit finish. Creamy entry with a light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation and acidic hoppy bite. Awesome.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden and hazy with a sudsy white head which left lacing throughout. Aroma was mildly dank with hops, pine, mango, and grapefruit. Taste follows the nose, but I also got some peach notes in there. A small amount of sweetness from malts is noticed up front with a medium bitterness to finish. Medium body and nicely carbed. All around fantastic brew. Toppling Goliath never fails to amaze me.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Swamp Head Bottle Drop. Psyched for this one. Pours light golden color with a thick white fluffy head on top. Aroma of vegetal hops (mmmm), grass, pine, (and maybe even a little weed mixed in). Flavor follows with a beautiful floral and vegetal hop note, some incredibly light sweet malts in the backdrop for a DIPA, grass, pine, ever so slight citrus rind but this focuses more on the grassiness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and very easy drinking. Excellent brew, but probably overshadowed by Duet which I had right before it.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of fruit complexities with notes of honeydew melon, dank herbal grass, grapefruit and a trace of cotton candy sweetness. Big round mouthfeel with a juicy palate that grows bitter and earthy on the back end.

Bottle pours slightly hazy yellow with moderate white head. Aroma citrus and a little pine. Taste sweet malts followed quickly by the citrus. Pretty clean finish, I did not notice much bitterness. Medium body.
Toppling Goliath seems to take simple things and do them really well, and this is no exception.
