Piney aroma on this pale ale leads to a cloudy gold color. This bitter citrus and pine flavor beers has a nice burn and very well carbonated.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 22oz bomber courtesy of Ryan and Peter. Another phenomenal APA from Toppling Goliath. Hazy orange body, big frothy, soapy head. Tangerine, mango, papaya..big tropical tones. A healthy does of the green onion, garlic thing going on too. Just an absolute pleasure to drink on, with fascinating hop nuances. I much prefer this one to the simultaneously released Blue. World Class. Really shows off the hops. Awesome stuff.

Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruit. Very similar to the red, but not quite as intense on the melon side of things. Same caramel malt profile and yeast. It is a slightly more subdued version of the red. Very good.

Bomber thanks to Schlais. Pours a cloudy orange with a medium foamy head that fades normally and leaves nice soapy lacing. Aroma is dank, juicy citrus and tropical fruit. Taste has a nice light sweet/bitter balance. Juicy pineapple, orange, lemon, flowers, light pine, and kiwi. Oily mouthfeel. Great APA.

Pours a light gold color, nice pine on the nose, nice bitterness up front with a slight citrus finish, pretty good overall, red is the winner so far for me

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
100th American Pale Ale! Big Whoop!
Pours nice and hazy with a big head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is tropical fruit, s’got some weird funky stinkiness, not in a "wild beer" kind of way more in a stinky hop kind of way, if that makes sense. Good orange and citrus rind offered.
The flavor is very hop forward, sort of juicy and a little melon-y. S’got some odd but very mild astringency but at the same time the bitterness is kept at a mild & pleasant enough level. The beer seems to open up a bit with a as the temp raises... it’s got a little berry and some more citrus towards the end of the bottle.

22 oz. bottle shared by Chris- thanks again, Chris! Pours a cloudy bright gold with a small white head. Aroma of big citrus (orange, grapefruit peel), herbs, peppery spice, some tropical fruits, onion, and bready malts. The flavor starts with citrus, grass, herbs, and lemon, but quickly gives way to a very malty slate - pale, bready, crackery, and also yeasty notes. Light-bodied, with a dry, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really good, though the flavor didn’t live up to the fantastic aroma.
