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.

Difficult to find fault with this one, and after more than one, Iím hardly inclined to. A nose that will knock your socks off, enough hop bitterness to satisfy your hop cravings, and a mouthful soft and full enough to keep this quaffable for a good session of beer drinking. Truly a great discovery in Iowa! I found this in a couple of places during our (my girlfriend/bride to be and mine) visit to Iowa City last week--Blackstone and Sanctuary. Worth checking out.

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.

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 (3101) - 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.
