4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 22 oz bottle purchased from Toppling Goliath. Pours a beautiful clear bright golden yellow color with a rocky wisp of white head. Aroma is dank and intense: fresh hop bitterness, and a pleasant sweet aroma akin to diesel fuel. Flavor is same with a singular hop bitterness down the middle that is delicious and amazing. Medium bodied, active carbonation, dank piney bitter finish. What a fantastic beer.

Bottle from zach. Thanks man. Golden yellow orange. Hoppy, citrus, touch of pine. Perfect amount of bitterness. This is a damn good double IPA. I’ll even say a hair above king sue.

Pours a light opaque gold with a nice white head. Citrusy aroma with maybe a hint of pine. Taste of a resin citrus bitter combo and seems maybe a little dry. A little bitterness hangs around for a little bit. Overall a good beer, not as good as King Sue but another good TGB beer.

Bomber. Rich gold orange pour with a white head. Amazing aroma and taste of mango, pineapple, and some resin. Syrupy palate. Awesome beer!

Looks like hazy pineapple juice. Has that citrus Toppling Goliath smell. Sweet aroma. Mmm, that’s good stuff. Sweet and citrus smell. Awesome pineapple mango taste. So tasty. Can they make an average beer?

On tap at Hunahpu’s Day 2014, poured into souvenir taster glass on the second run through the TG line after catching the last bit of King Sue. Cloudy light orange body with an off-white head that looks creamy. Aroma is citrus, mango, pine, caramel malt. Taste is mild citrus sweetness complimented by the caramel, moderate citrus peel and pine bitterness. Medium body, oily, creamy, and slick texture, average carbonation, long bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours clear yellow-gold with film of white bubbles. Aroma is sweet mango nectar, lychee, orange, honey, light pine. Really nice. Taste is sweet orange, lychee, and bitter honey with a trace of well-integrated booze. Slightly syrupy. Exceptional beer from Toppling Goliath.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
#100 DIPA. Thx! to Kraddel. 650 ml. bottle sampled @ Barely Legal Tasting Room. Hazy golden with some white bubbles for a head. Smells of sweat actually, sweet dough, mellow grass and light bitter grass. Taste of light bitter grass, coupled with sweet dough, touch bitter hay, light fruit, orange, sweet bread. Body is sweet dough and yeast. Nothing wrong here is an an enjoyable DIPA, easy enough to drink but nothing overly impressive which is a bit puzzling seeing Toppling Goliath’s reputation and this being the first beer that I try by them.

Pours hazy gold. Aroma is tropical fruit. Big tropical fruit notes, mango and lots of citrus. Nice full caramel body balances it well but the hops are the star here. Very hop juice, very good.
