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.

Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a nice medium golden color with two finger of sticky white foam. This beer has a big punch of pine, some spruce, guava and citrus zest. Sweet malt backbone keeps the bitterness in check.

Poured from a bottle given to us by a stranger at 2014 Dark Lord day. Aroma is citrus and pine. Appearance is a clear crisp golden yellow. Taste is semi sweet pine with some citrus. Palate is crisp and fresh with good carbonation. This is an IPA that you should try, it will be worth your time.

Golden with a pale head. Aroma is earthy hops, honey, herbs, fresh bread. Medium-light bodied, nice balance of fruity hops and underlying malty sweetness. Taste is honey, sage, herbs, bread, hint of spice, orange peel. Nice.

Bottle obtained in trade via reece. Thanks! Poured to a snifter. Pour was pretty clear and golden. Not much head and minimal lacing. Bursting with fruity smells of mango, grapefruit, and orange. A small amount of floral was noticed too. The mango really takes over on the taste for me. It was very good. I got hints of other fruits, but mango hands down ruled it. I noticed alcohol in this one along with a decent amount of bitter. I don’t mind that in a beer so it was no issue for me. I enjoyed this along with most other TG offerings that I’ve been lucky enough to try.

Orange, off-white head. Nose is very floral, some citrus, strong malt backbone, banana bread. Taste is citrus, near-rotten fruits, mango, hop resin, strong malt backbone again, and lasting resiny hops and bittering hops. Light bodied, oily mouthfeel.
