Wow. What a great beer! As one whos had his share of IPAs, I find it hard to be bowled over by yet one more IPA--but this is not just one more IPA! The first thing that hits you is that glorious nose of grapefruit and herbs, and the flavor and the mouthful live up to the promise in that first impression. Proof that an IPA doesnt have to be over the top in ABV or IBU to be truly satisfying. I wish I lived in Iowa where I could have access to this regularly.

Bright gold and clear with a persistent white foam. Im a fan of the Citra hop with its citrus and grapefruit flavors. Not too bitter. Easy to drink!

markducommun (1000) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Clear golden with a light, white head. Fairly prominent lacing. Bright lemon citrus, mango, some slightly dank pine resin. Fairly bitter, stronger malt backbone than the last batch tasted in ~2014, some biscuit. Medium body, fair bit of carbonation, not exceptionally clean. Long lingering finish, citrus rind. Great.

DocJitsu (1870) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Pours a very cloudy golden with a white head. Clean fresh nose of pine, lemon, and garlic. Resinous, yet crisp mouthfeel. Pine and citrus flavors. Aromas are more vibrant than the flavor.

gyllenbock (8555) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2017
Can from Bottlecraft North Park, San Diego. Hazy golden with a small head. Fresh with hops, pineapple, mango, some lime and hints of malt. The body was on the light side and the bitterness around medium. Really refreshing and easy to drink. A great one.

Scipio (909) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2017
Pours a bright, clear golden with a foamy, medium white head that settles slowly. The robust aroma is full of citrus hops, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and hints of caramel. The taste is quite dry with just a tiny initial sweetness. It gushes with flavor. Strong grapefruit is the dominating flavor, with lesser notes of pine, resin, pineapple, citrus hops, mild herbal hops, and hints of caramel. The aftertaste is a vary long pineapple, Extremely easy to drink, this one is light to medium in body, sticky in texture, with some lively carbonation. Absolutely delicious, I would never get tired of this.

Not much to say about this one. Its a citra-hopped pale ale; pretty basic, nothing special. IDK what the hypes about.

Balance towards the bitterness, quite harsh with noticeable malt backbone, maybe too old.

A rarity of a brew making its way out here to the California Central Valley. Bright and greasy citrus and light tropics involved here. Delicious and dank. Fresher from the can. Super hyped to be associated with trying something from the renowned Toppling Goliath.

A lot of Citra notes right when the can is open. Has a beautiful golden hue to it with sediment lingering towards the bottom of the glass. Lack of a head. Really a great beer, tasty, refreshing and just the right amount of hops. Happy that Toppling Goloath has finally made it east of the Mississippi River.
