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.

Difficult to find fault with this one, and after more than one, I’m 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.

McWorta (1289) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 25, 2016
Opalescent with a light hop haze deep golden (EBC 8) colour with a pillowy fine poring off white head. Aromas of peach, herbal-resinous with notes of floral grapefruit zest develop with light earthy-hay note and a hint of green pear. Fine perlage with a tangy bite, light slick with a mellow body. Light earthy-floral sweetness with a harmonic resinous bitterness. Medium lasting finish.

sebletitje (8666) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2016
1pint can, en cannette déc. 2015 de Malt Attacks. Orangée, col crémeux, généreux blanc-cassé persistant. Arôme au nez superbement bien houblonné rappel les senteurs de pin, résineux copieux, léger malté grillé en retrait, le tout donne tout de même l’impression d’avoir sa tête dans un sac de houblons. Palais est tout aussi délicieux, tonne de pin, note de forêt sous-bois, avec une petite touche de menthe fraiche en fin de bouche. Herbacé avec un certain résidu alpha acide huileux. Malt résiduel accentue le petit côté doux en fin de ouche.

Dåse. Tredje toppling øl. Superfin. Kattepis duft på en lysegul øl med et lille skumhoved. Smagen er lækker med et godt bid. Humlen drypper på tungen, men kattepissen trækker lidt ned.
