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.

Clear orange with a white head. Candied fruit, citrus resin, pine, bitter hop backbone. Rustic bitterness. Has a nice sweet feel, too. Not an over the top IPA but just a good solid beer.

Slightly hazed gold pour with a white head. Tap at huna. Very citrusy and resiny up front. The bitterness is present but not in an off putting way. Actually quite juicy and somewhat fruity.

[2/12/15] Bottle sample at joet’s place. Thanks Joe! Clear golden. Very “green” hops aroma, a bit oniony, with some fruity notes. Dry flavor of “green” hops with some fruitiness and nice refreshing bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Very nice stuff.

Bottle share, what a treat to get this, as a San Diego IPA lover, I could have been jaded on rating this, but could not. Excellent tea hop flavor, spicy and fruity in one swoop. Mouthfeel and carbonation were near perfect. End flavor kept reminding you of hops and more hops. I gotta goto this place when in Midwest.
