COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Golden IPA uses Pilsner and Munich malts to give it a bright, warm color and features American and Australian Galaxy hops to create an aroma that’s citrusy and tropical. It’s a welcome ray of sunshine during the long, cold winters in the Free State.

a really in between beer. amber colored ipa with enogh malt presence to make it weird if you were expecting an ipa, and then not enough roast by a longshot to be close to a black ipa. a big almost.

Grapefruit and pine resin aroma. Bitterness pretty much overwhelms the malt.

Really nice nose, otherwise a bit disappointing. Nice amber pour with a nice white head. Some bitterness at the end. Pretty good overall!

This beer poured a hazy light amber color with a small beige head that fades slowly. Some light lacing is left behind. The aroma is fruity, citrus hops along with some light toffee notes. The flavor consists of orange, grapefruit, and some lightly sweet malts. Very nicely balanced for an IPA. The mouth feel is light and slightly watery. Light to medium-bodied

12 ounce bottle thanks to Craig. When this beer was cold it was much better. After it had warmed a little, still cold, diacetyl appeared and never went away. The hops are great and the malts are not overwhelmed by the hops. This would be a great beer if it was not for the diacetyl.
