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.

edwardbass (647) - Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Murky yellow color with almost no head. Aroma is amazing - citrus, pineapple, grassiness. It tastes good, but not as good as the aroma is: grapefruit, citrus rind, earthiness and grassiness, could have just a tiny, tiny bit more malt background. ABV is undetectable. The palate could be a tad heavier, but only a little. Extremely good IPA. Bomber shared by a beer buddy whose wife found it in Wisconsin.

Gription79 (2614) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 12, 2015
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, big thanks to Ed. Pours orange with an off white head. The aroma is filled with citrusy, orange, and floral hops, there is a soft bready maltiness that comes through as well. The flavor is pine, floral, soft orange hoppiness, with the malts being subtle and coming across as bready. Very tasty.

22oz bottle pours a clear gold with some lightly lacing white head. Nose is grassy, mild pine, some lemon, mild honey sweetness. Lots of fresh grass promised and the flavor delivers, a little catty too, pine,needles, lightly vegetal, some lemon. Crisp finish. A little old school.

Oakwolf (2) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2015 does not count
Forward but not bright hop flavor, too little else going on. A good beer, but not comparable to the best IPAs. Grassy with a bit of grapefruit rind.
