3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a clear, golden yellow, with middling head. Aroma of flowers and fruit. Flavor had a strange, astringent bite to it. Tasted a bit chemically or minerally. But there was the expected hop and citrus flavors as well. This wasn’t my favorite, but still definitely worth the try. Toppling Goliath is pretty amazing...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Finally! My first long awaited TG brew. Pours a golden orange, short dissipating head with light lace. Strong spicey resinous woody aroma citrus tropical floral. Same in taste, soft malts, strong citrus and wood. Dry toasted malt. Foamy mouthfeel seems like wheat malt in this too. Light buttery caramel malt. Citrus Juicy hop flavor. Very hop forward in taste and aroma. A bit flat/watery at times.

It's IS confusing. It IS a different IPA hop experience. It IS good. It it on its commercial description pretty well. Confusing citrus. Earthy. Interesting. Another nice pale/ IPA from iowA!

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle as an amazing trade extra. Pours hazy yellow golden with a big fluffy creamy white head. Incredible aroma of pineapple, mango, pine, and hay. Just perfect aroma. Flavor follows with big juicy pineapple and tropical fruits, medium bitter, juicy. Wow. Medium light bodied and incredible flavor for 5.5%. These guys just need to replace every other brewery on the planet so I can drink it all the time. This hit the spot.

Bottle, shared with some brahs at Bills tasting. Pours hazy golden, with small white head. Notes are super clean cheese skunk funk. Straight Nelson brings the dankness every time. Glad it wasn’t sweet and a nice alcohol pct to crush on.

Shared bottle by a friend. Poured a clear yellow colour with a white head. Lot of orange, mandarin, citrus, orange zest, fresh cut grass, some grapefruit. very Nice and mellow sweet aftertaste. Just a slightly bitterness. The mandarin jumps right in your face as you keep drinking it

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium golden color with three fingers of white foam. Nose is a complex blend of floral straw, clementine, dusty grain and marigold flowers. Palate follows with lots of earthy complexity. Dusty straw, power of suggestion maybe but marigolds is spot on as well as nasturtium flowers, some citrus peeks through and some cracker malts. Not completely my cup of tea but a well done New Zealand bomb !

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a real light cloudy yellow/gold with a nice white head. Strong citrus aroma, grapefruit and maybe another grapefruit. Upfront bitterness than a citrus taste, unique. This taste different than other citrusy IPA’s, its almost like the flavors are coming out of order last to first. This is good, but isn’t all TGB beers really good?
