A Note on This Beer
A bar-gument that starts with “who makes the best hoppy beers in the world?” quickly finishes with one answer: Toppling Goliath. Their PseudoSue is arguably the most sought after Pale Ale in craft for its tropical nectar goodness, but there is another fruity brew climbing the ranks and threatening to take Sue’s throne…
...and of course it’s brewed by Toppling Goliath: Xhops Gold Pale Ale. Boasting a fresh-from-the-rainforest assault of mango and passionfruity hops, this straight up hop juice has ratings lined with gold:
4.24 on Untappd out of 9,000 ratings
4.32 on Tavour
4.53 on BeerAdvocate and ranked the #12 Best Pale Ale in the world
Climb aboard this jungle cruise of fruity hops and you’ll be floating on a river of distilled pineapples, smashed blueberries, and crisp tangerine zest. The flavors of just zested pomelo rinds and champagne mangos fill your palate so rich, you’ll be thinking “is there actual juice in here?” Hints of resin come up at the end, but the finish is touched with spritz like a top-shelf mimosa.
Is there another juicy, hoppy beer on earth that could possibly unseat PseudoSue? Maybe, maybe not, but leave it to Toppling Goliath to make this a close race with another one of their tropical nectar bombs: Xhops Gold.
