Semi hazy medium golden. Great frothy creamy white head. Maybe it was how everything was mixed, but it was Very floral to me. Weedy. Some citrus in the background. sweetness to balance. Medium plus body, full feel. Some powderiness. Good balance like all TG beers. I liked it, but nearly as much as many other TG beers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet offers an assortment of citrus rinds, pungent armpit, tropical fruits and melons. Full-bodied and creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor furnishes a blend of sweet, pale malts and bitter, earthy, musky hops. Terrific balance with a bittersweet finish. Bottle courtesy of badbeer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy, but not milky yellow with a well retained small head that leaves a decent lacing on the glass.
The aroma is dank but at the same time very bright. Itís got some nice orange and lightly melony fruit character. Itís aromatic, appetizing and stinky in all the right ways.
The flavor is a very wonderful expression of the Mosaic hop, itís beautifully fruity and lightly floral with a nice light bitterness. Itís got a low booziness and is moderately dry. Something so simple, yet so well executed, so tasty... so able to hit the right notes for a hoppy beer with that one hop, itís a very cool beer for sure.
Truly I can say that this is a fantastic beer, but for what itís worth Iíd rather drink pint after pint of Pompeii instead of the occasional chance to split a bomber of this a few ways because it flew off shelves so quickly.

Bottle from the Nova split into two glasses. Unfiltered cloudiness. Interesting play of the hops with the malt. Citrusy and bitter. Great stuff as always from TG.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From notes. Tasted blind, thanks to Ryan for sharing this! Slightly hazy gold pour. Citrus and pine, much like the nightís other offering, but this one has a little more caramel. I want to say "candied orange," actually. Taste: Toast, biscuit, a little grassy. Caramel is there - maybe a bit sweeter and less bitter in the finish than the other. A little bit fruitier, but also a bit of weedy dankness. Light-medium body, some noticeable alcohol in the finish, and pretty dry. Overall: the two blind beers tonight (this and La Cumbre Project Dank) both ran pretty darn close to each other. Iíd probably give PD a slight nod, but when I look at the scores itís only by 0.05.

Pow! This beer is pow. Pours w/ a lg fluffy head that lasts & a nice slightly hazy amber color. Aroma is a heady blend of grapefruit, resin, & weed, in that order. Flavor is is actually pleasantly ( & I would say masterfully) understated. Perfect body. Finish is very easy for a beer of this power. I want more!

Bottle acquired by ReeceG! Trade with this guy...crazy generous! Hazy honey pour with a tightly packed white cloud-like head. Lots of Del Monte Fruit Cocktail with peach, pear, grape, and cherry soaked in simple syrup. Perhaps more appropriately, tropical fruit, citrus, and a touch of honey. Love the Mosaic hops. Really solid but other beers from this brewery are its fiercest competition.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the April 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow-gold color with a small soapy off white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was bitter, somewhat tart and had notes of herbal hops, pine and pineapple. The flavor was bitter and tart pine, herbal hops, pineapple, a brief sweet spike and then more bitterness. Long bitter herbal, pine and pineapple finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.
