COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spectacularly golden, medium bodied IPA was crafted from a winning combination of Golden Promise malt and Nugget hops.

Fall in love with the big hop aroma of our Golden Nugget as it mingles with fragrances of citrus and evergreen, followed by a floral sweetness. Tropical fruit flavors entice your taste buds before immediately captivating you with a bold, hop forward taste and a pleasant bitterness that lingers in the finish.

Pours clear golden with a fairly thick eggshell head. Aroma features resiny hops and tangy citrus tones. Flavor features evergreen and slightly bitter hops plus a little citrus and a little fresh hops. Mouthfeel presents typical body and fizz. Still, a nugget of good beer. I used to have a car named Nugget, a yellow Toyota Corolla.

16 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with a big bubbly white head that retains well

The aroma is sweet bready malt with soft tropical fruit and some grassy piney hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with spicy floral hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
