719. Toppling Goliath Brewing pseudoSue

Topling Goliath Pseudo SueThree of the next 9 beers I review here will be from Toppling Goliath Brewery in Decorah, Iowa. This is a new brewery to me but I picked up a few bottles in trades over the past few weeks and since they were all pales and IPAs I moved them to the top of my list of beer to drink.

pseudoSue appears to be their most popular beer and I can see why. This is a straight up hoppy pale ale; think Mo from Maine Beer Company or Edward from Hill Farmstead. Appearance is an unfiltered orange with a thin white head. Aroma has lots of tropical and citrus fruits. Taste follows but adds some piney hops and a mildly bitter finish. Overall an excellent beer and I bet it is even better at the brewery.

This one is worth seeking out if you have a trading partner in their distribution area or are taking a trip in that area. 
Pros:
Lots and lots of hops
Cons:
Alcohol Content: 5.8% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 50
Rating: 
Brewers Website: Toppling Goliath Brewing
Brewers Description: This single hop pale ale showcases the Citra hop for a well balanced beer that is delicate in body with a mild bitterness in the finish.

She roars with ferocious aromas of grapefruit, citrus, mango and evergreen. pseudoSue’s unique and addictive taste is clean and bright with just enough bite!
