COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dive into a Toppling Goliath Tsunami Pale Ale. Waves of mandarin orange aroma swell into this light ale body, coasting to a smooth, easy finish. This Tsunami is a breezy ride, not too bitter, and a perfect introduction for those not yet familiar with the craft brewing world. Prepare your palate to take the plunge with a chilled Tsunami Pale, best served in a pint glass.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big lemon, bread, hints of zest into a bit of orange, slight pine, grass into a bit of bready, doughy notes. Taste was a mix of bread, orange, lemon into a pit of pine, grassy notes with a bit of grain, finishing slightly bitter.

From a bottle into a glass. The pour is a above average c02 hazy yellow. The beer is a light body , melon light citrus pale ale that you could drink all day.

islay (1542) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2015
4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom. Consumed on 3-21-15. Pours a clear, dark gold to bronze. Off-white head. Produces good lacing. Vegetal, juicy, sugary aroma features a caramel scent. Quite fresh, appetizing smell. Interesting, simultaneously dry and sweet taste. Caramel, pine resin, lemon, and lemon peel flavors. Cool, different sort of flavor. Leafy taste. Medium body. Oily in the palate. Quite likable. Good and interesting.

Pours a cloudy, orangeish-gold, with minimal head. Floral, citrus aromas. Flavor is a very balanced combination of hop bite and malt sweetness--very smooth finish. Not quite the monster pale ale that some Toppling Goliath brews have been, but a very smooth drinking beer that I could see drinking as a "go to" pale ale.
