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.

If I was beer this would be me. I love love love this stuff. I can’t wait until kegs are available. I used to drive growlers home 150 miles just to have some on hand. Excellent flavor, color, and the taste is the perfect balance of citrus and bitter. Hangs on the palate for a long time and stays tasty. OVERALL I have to blow this rating to the top - I think this will be the only one I ever rate this high.

Gription79 (2425) - 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.

daknole (10045) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Slightly hazed gold pour with a white head. Tap at huna. Very citrusy and resiny up front. The bitterness is present but not in an off putting way. Actually quite juicy and somewhat fruity.
