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.

12 oz. bottle from my Secret Santa, shared with Ian. Light gold pour, with a small, bubbly, beige head. The nose is butter toffee, soft pine sap, and orange juice. Bold, smooth bitterness, with a good malt balance. Medium to heavy body, thick, creamy, and slick. This is a very assertive, yet approachable IPA. Manages to be strong and bitter, yet smooth and balanced.

How: Bottle (12 oz) at home. Courtesy of Minderbinder, thanks!

>>> A well constructed IPA with a more than decent malt backbone and a mix of hops that, despite the fact they aren’t intensely aromatics, complements each other nicely to give a nice flavor profile to this beer.

- Clear bright orangey golden with a medium easy to revive white head and some lacing.
- Aroma isn’t super intense but there’s a really nice mix of citrus (oranges, nectarines), melons, resinous/piney notes,floral hops and mild spiciness.
- Sweetness level is low and the malt backbone is discrete but pretty solid.
- Bitterness is low to moderate with a tingling resinous presence.
- Body is medium and perfect for the style. Carbonation is medium and mouthfeel is fluffy. Dry and floral finish.
- Very easy drinking and quenching despite not being "light".

Flavors: Citrus (oranges, nectarines), piney notes, floral hops, mild spiciness, mild caramel.
