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.

Boutip (5365) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a nice large foamy had with good retention. Aroma of citrusy hops with light tropical fruits. Taste is also dominated by a big rush of citrusy hops and some tropical fruits notes with some residual sugar notes. Body is full with great carbonation. Well enjoyable IPA with limited bitterness and loads of nice huge floral notes. It is also nice to get a chance to taste this hops on its own.

A very solid IPA. Maltier than the 1492, but equally impressive aroma. Tropical, light citrus, with a slightly thicker mouthfeel. Picked up at the Dell with Andy in 2015.

12 oz bottle generously given to me by csbosox. 30 Sep 15 stamped on bottle neck. The pour is a clear golden orange with a nice one inch off white head. The aroma is full fresh clean citrus fruit hop along with some resin and a bit of tropical pineapple sweetness. The taste is the bright citrus tropical fruit hops along with nice cereal grain malt and the resin element towards the back. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and the dry bitter resin citrus malt finish. Nice one, thanks for sharing Chris.

12 oz. bottle from Ray’s Wine And Spirits, Wauwatosa, WI (bottled August 31, 2105). Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, pine, a faint caramel malt. Juicy citrus hop taste with notable pine needles and wet grass. Mild hop bitterness on the finish. A very well done IPA.
