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 canít 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.

Beaver (1624) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2016
16 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with a big bubbly white head that retains well

The aroma is sweet bready malt with soft tropical fruit and some grassy piney hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with spicy floral hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent IPA. Iím not really liking the hop flavor profile though.

Palme (3948) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2016
0.355l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a cloudy looking golden honey colored body with a small and quickly islandy off-white head on the top. It smells nice. Citrus and earthy tones. A little alcohol, hints of branches. Mild but nice. Lots of nice balanced bitterness in the taste. Itís peach fruity and a little almost herbal grassy. Feels nice and oily in the mouth and itís just about average on the carbonation. Goes more sweet towards the finish. Not the most complex one perhaps and probably a tad over the top, still nice. 18.01.2016

Suttree (6013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 5, 2016
From a tallboy can. Slightly hazy orange, with a a lot of off-white foam. Smells like fresh tangerine and grapefruit, with a note of grassiness. Taste is very citrusy, with more orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Some grassy and flowery notes, as well. Very tasty.
