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.

eachnotesecure (84) - Kentucky, USA - JUL 27, 2015
12oz bottle, about two weeks old. Pours a thin, light bodied golden color. Aromas are simple yet pleasant, citrus, grass, lemon. This is a solid, middle of the road IPA, very drinkable, but nothing amazing. Still it’s worth your time.

Bottle at Matt’s. Clear bright golden yellow color, white head. Nice stone fruit and citrus aroma. Taste is fruity, very lightly bitter. Easy drinking.

jkwood04 (4767) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 25, 2015
12oz bottle in a taster. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrus hops, some pale malts, some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A cool beer but not the best.

JK (4955) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2015
12 oz bottle. A good looking beer, gold color and a lacing head. Hop aroma, some grass and pine. Flavor has pine also, crisp, bright hops. Bitter finish, with the hops more prominent than the lighter malt flavor.

ljthiessen (722) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle, dated three weeks ago. Cloudy golden yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet tropical fruit with some pine and subtle citrus. Flavour is tropical fruit, a delicious melon note, some more bitter pine and citrus, and very nicely balanced. Pretty full bodied with a drier finish. This holds its own among the best IPAs.

Bottle shared by koleminer20. Aroma is wonderfully sweet, tropical fruit, malt, pine. Appearance is beautiful dark golden, white head. Taste is malty, sweet tropical fruit, pine, good bitterness. Mouthfeel is perfect, carbonation on point, great thickness, lovely aftertaste. Overall, this one is very impressive.

jbruner (2939) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bomber with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace, a few floating chunks. Aroma of sweet oxidized malt over slight fruity hop. Taste is less oxidized, nice hop malt balance, smooth and creamy. Soft carbonation, bit of booze, solid beer if not old.

Jow (2698) - New York, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Tap at brewery. Very good but right after pseudo sue seems subdued. Hazy gold. Nose of florals and tropical fruit. Tastes of florals, resinous, grapefruit, light honey dew. Low to medium palate. Very crushable and tasty.
