Brewery: Equilibrium Brewery x Toppling Goliath Brewing Company
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Brewer Description: (from Untappd) King AL uses a mashed-up grain bill from MC² and Toppling Goliath’s King Sue before introducing Equilibrium’s absolute biggest dry hop to date with an all Citra Incognito, Citra LUPOMAX, Citra Cryo, and Citra T-90 hop bill. Pouring a milky opaque yellow with aromas of mango sorbet and orange creamsicle, we get chewy saturated flavors of tropical smoothie, fresh squeezed navel orange juice, dank grass, fruit salad in syrup, and lime gummies with a thick and custard like creamsicle finish and a huge blast of EQjuice rainbow melon flavors. King AL is dangerously soft and smooth and may have you questioning the laws of physics, space, time or just how we got a melted orange creamsicle fruit bomb into the can.

Intro: A 1 pint can, with no clear canned on or best before date. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy milky orange colour with a one finger white head that had excellent retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Creamsicle, orange zest, tangerine, mango, with notes of pineapple.
Taste: Mango, orange, creamsicle, a touch of grass, and a lasting melon finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I love the creamsicle notes which really makes it for me. Easy to drink with enjoyable flavours.
