Toppling Goliath Sol Hunter

The Toppling Goliath Brewing Company is in Decorah, Iowa. They make the best beers in Iowa, and some of the best beers in the country. This is one of their delicious pale ale variations.

The beer pours a cloudy honey golden and apricot in color. There is over an inch of very thick, foamy head, off-white. The aroma is a huge smack of tropical fruits, with much passion fruit, guava, and passion fruit skin. The taste follows the aromas, with a huge wave of rich, round, ripe tropical, then very earthy, then well-toasted malt. The finish is dry and comes to a very abrubpt, fairly bitter end. The beer drinks smooth and round, with tingling carbonation. This is another wonderful TG palate and neural shifter.

The Untapped listing for this beer says it is a refined version of the Xhops Red. Does anyone know if this is in fact true?
