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.

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.
