Toppling Goliath 1492

The Toppling Goliath Brewing Company is in Decorah, Iowa. This India Pale Ale features Columbus hops (now do you get the name?).

The beer pours a lightly hazed orange, amber and apricot in color. There is a short head of white foam that leaves a sticky lattice of lacing down the glass. The aroma is dank, funky, somewhat piney hops, mango skin, with orange and citrus underneath. The taste follows the aromas directly, hitting the same notes, dankness, followed by a bright blast of fruit, with a quite bitter finish, like biting into a grapefruit rind. The beer drinks smooth, easy, and refreshing.
