Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget IPA
Good one. Dark orange, slight!y hazy with a bouncy white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, mango and pine. Medium body, moderate carb. Then it does all the right things: flavour starts with the fruit, malt follows up strongly, and the finish is pleasantly bitter.

Coffee, chocolate and hints of vanilla in aroma. Pours black with a tan head. Very balanced taste, coffee and chocolate and it’s almost as if there is a hint of red berry. Full bodied, flat as it should be. Lovely.

From a bomber. Bright, transparent orange. Tons of tropical fruit amd ripe citrus on the nose. Flavor adds a bit of pine resin, but this remains super juicy. Boozy finish. Quite, quite good, though.

Toppling Goliath Dorothy’s New World Lager
Bottle from Kihoskh during CBC. Too drunk to remember to check the dates on the bottle. An almost god damn one year old bottle! Well well... Just slight hazy pale golden yellow with a short white head that lace the glass. Looks good at least. Ok it’s old, but it’s surprisingly old fashioned with grains, bread and hay and a soft grassy hoppiness plus a pinch of lemon. Same goes with the flavour. Hay and grains, some lemon and grass. It’s a bit cloying with some earthy mushroom kind of flavour, but I think that’s mostly because of it’s age and the faded hops. Medium to lighter body with soft carbonation and soft texture. I bet this is a pretty tasty straight up lager when fresh, but now it was just old and dull.

Can. Brune foncée, léger doré au verre, col fin beige. Arôme au nez malté, grillé dominant , impression de mélasse et malt cara, houblonné semble être noble et plutôt discret. Palais est malté, grillé, touche de grillé, petite note de réglisse et mélasse. Houblonné fin en retrait apportant juste une fine d ose d’amertume. Le tout est poussiéreux, épais sorte de malt Vienna voire céréales. Pas spécialement impressionné et une cannette entière était de trop pour moi.

Draft: Poured a bright orangey color ale with a nice foamy head. Aroma of juicy hops notes of citrus and tropical fruit. Taste consist of intense flavours of juicy hops notes of citrus and tropical fruit with some residual sugar notes and almost no bitterness. Body is about average for style with great carbonation. This one is quite the treat and shows that he brewer was really able to extract as much as possible from the Mosaic hops.

Bottled 04/08/16. Pours pretty slightly hazy golden. Aroma is grapefruit, super piney, mango, dank (smells like weed), peach, papaya, slightly peppery note, really nice tropical fruits. It?s not your usual tropical fruit hop bomb. It?s there and it?s intense but it?s amazing. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, mango, peach. Really damn nice. I mean it?s amazing. No other word for it. On the order of one of the best IPAs I?ve had.

I think of this as a west coast style pale ale, though of course that makes little sense geographically. Nonetheless, it reminds me of the balance and drinkability of a Sierra Nevada with the tropical and citrus fruit turned up to 11. Very enjoyable.

Bottle. Average gold pour with white head. Had a funny sulfur aroma in the background. Really dragged the score down. Tastes alright. But that smell mixed with grainyness kind of killed it.
