Toppling Goliath PseudoSue

IMG_80015.8% abv. This single hop ale showcases the Citra hop named for the largest T-rex fossil ever discovered from Toppling Goliath Brewing Company in Decatur, IA. Pours a hazy golden with a nice half finger frothy white head. Lemon zest, pineapple, wet hops, and a good dose of dank comes across in the nose. The flavors bring in very similar qualities of Three Floyds Zombe Dust , perhaps a hybrid of, perhaps Three Floyds Alpha King and Alpine Nelson based on their underlying qualities. Burst of dank hops, orange, lemon, hints of melon, and some honey sweetness from the malts to balances this beer out. There is a slight bitterness in the back finish which brings this a bit more closer to an IPA rather than a pale ale in my opinion. In addition to the creaminess of this beer, there is a medium body to this. Overall, this a very fine pale ale – if not the best I’ve had in a while. I definitely want to make the pilgrimage to Toppling Goliath someday and try some more of their excellent beers.  theBeerAuthority: A-
