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.

Golden Nugget - Toppling Goliath American IPA 6% ABV 56 IBU APPEARANCE: Pours a star-bright 24 karat gold with shimmering hints of apricot rim variations. Massive light fluffy white head. Very attractive beer especially in the natural light, the carbonation is really dancing. AROMA: This is a very feminine beer, bouquet of rose petals, sweet perfume and baby powder. Hints of citrus fruit with a light nice pine sent. Very inviting nose that begs to be taken in. TASTE: Clean, refreshing. The perfume nose translated into a nice honey taste up front. Caramel, pine and the rose petals I got on the bouquet come through. Floral and light with a slight bit of candied oranges and those peaches-O's gummy candies. MOUTHFEEL: Lots of vivacious carbonation. Medium body. Crisp and clean with a great short dry finish. OVERALL: This is only the second TG beers I've had, both have been really light and feminine in style. Very nice change up from the palate wreckers I usually go to. Very drinkable and I really was enjoying all the floral and perfume notes that came out in this ipa. RATING: 4/5 Zombie Heads! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a rich gold with thin white head thatís surprisingly long-lasting. Aroma is bursting with resin and some citrus. Taste is immediately bitter with underlying grapefruit and bitter apple flavors. Good medium body with a nice, long, bitter finish. More dank than the Pseudo Sue. Very tasty.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Pine, spruce, and tropical fruit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a fruity floral note and a nice hop resin.

Pour is mostly clear golden amber with an off white creamy head and a strong lacing. Nose has a fair bit of floral notes, some tropical fruit and ripe grapefruit. Taste follows suit perfectly, floral presence, moderate grain bill underneath and a hint of caramel malt with an assertive tropical fruit finishing strong grapefruit but light hop bitterness. Assertive carbonation, medium body, good feel, semi dry finish.

Bottle/tap. Awesome IPA. More piney IPA whereas psuedo is more citrus. Nice clear pour with frothy head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 doesnít have that heavy mango grapefruit taste. There is some citrus flavor but the hoppy bitterness is the main flavor. The bitterness isnít overwhelming and doesnít 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.
