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.

Beaver (1621) - 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. I’m not really liking the hop flavor profile though.

Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at Truck Festival, Steventon, Oxon, Friday 15th July 2016 Pours warm gold with a large frothy white head. Hoppy burps come quite quickly, sweet, malty body. Some honey. More of a malty led IPA than fruity, but it’s a nice beer. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

Palme (3943) - 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. It’s peach fruity and a little almost herbal grassy. Feels nice and oily in the mouth and it’s 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 (6010) - 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.

anstei (1015) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 25, 2016
50cl can. A highly tropical fruity, slightly citric and floral intense IPA. Some oranges, mostly mango and passion fruit, some flowers too. Lively and crisp carbonation brings everything up to speed, pleasant smooth texture, matching bitterness and a solid body behind. Very, very long fruity finish.
