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.

Clear dull straw color body. Fast dissipating head. Lovely hoppy aroma. Nice bitter taste. Not very much malt character, just the way I like it. Very good.

Pours a dark gold color with a one finger white head which has nice retention and lacing. Has a great aroma with citrus, pine, pineapple, and mango. Has an outstanding combination of sweetness and bitterness with grapefruit, oranges, citrus zest, pine, pineapple, mango, and some pale malts. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Has a grapefruit and tropical fruit aftertaste. Well worth trying if you get the chance. I will definitely be buying more growlers of this.

Bottle into a DFH Ale IPA glass--Pours a real light gold with a big white head that clings to the glass. Slight citrusy aroma with maybe a slighter hint of pine(?). Taste more like an IPA than Psuedosue does because it doesn’t have that heavy mango grapefruit taste. There is some citrus flavor but the hoppy bitterness is the main flavor. The bitterness isn’t overwhelming and doesn’t overstay its welcome. I really like this IPA a lot.

Similar to pseudo sue. Pale color and light toast malt profile. Excellent use of hops. Some tropical fruit and citrus. Not resinous or dark. Bright hop flavor. Fairly dry. Tangy lingering bitterness but never puckering. Excellently balanced and refreshing IPA.

Good fruity IPA. Not too punchy, but smooth and well rounded. A nice medium body with toasted golden malt and some nice floral hops.

TimE (3086) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2014
Golden color, frothy white head. I think age has caught up with this beer and the nose was fairly muted. A touch of floral sweetness. The mouth is well balanced, a touch astringent, but overall lacks a bit of character. Definitely a well crafted beer, but flavors were just not a prominent as expected.

Clearish golden, white head. Citrus hop aroma, very pungent, very good. Taste is sweet with very little bitter up front. Very nice citrus hops and sticky body.lovely.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Hazy golden-orange pour with a white head. The aroma as quite a bit of grass and orange citrus notes as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same. The orange notes come through again but there is a lot of biscuit malt that keeps the beer from having much bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Fresh bottle. Pours clear yellow/gold with tall white foamy head. Aroma is distinctly tangerine/orange though overall floral and citrusy. I taste a good amount of tangerine here with some resinous notes as well. Light on the palate and definitely easy to drink a few though the ABV is enough to keep me from doing so. Really solid - though I liked PsuedoSue better.

Sample from a 32oz growler. Thanks to Scott L. for sharing! Clear golden color. Thin white head. Leaves some loose splotches of lace. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Awesome big citrusy hop and light bready malt aroma. Very clean malt, good lightly piney, grapefruit citrus hop. Moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet, more dry finish. Nice, balanced, interesting IPA. Nothing about is too heavy or to over-the-top. Good light bit of lemony zest to it, too. Good refreshing balanced easy drinking stuff.
