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.

Growler: Thanks, Corey! Pretty cloudy, burnt orange color with a large, foamy, chunky eggshell head that lasts for days & leaves tremendously sticky lacing all the way down. Aroma of floral notes, juicy grapefruit, citrus peel, general pungent fruitiness, light pineapple/tropical notes & a nice kiss of honey covered cracker malts. Taste is crisp with a sustaining, yet smooth bitterness. Hop leaves covered in tame white pepper, flower pedals, grapefruit flesh, mild pine, more pineapple & tropical fruit notes, a hint of bready malt, & mild hoppy bitter tingle that lingers in the aftertaste. Drinkable & certainly crushable with almost no sign of the 7.2% ABV. Very nice IPA.

Sjohnh (655) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Good one. Dark orange, slight!y hazy with a bouncy white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, mango and pine. Medium body, moderate carb. Then it does all the right things: flavour starts with the fruit, malt follows up strongly, and the finish is pleasantly bitter.
