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.

Percy0103 (758) - MEXICO - JAN 3, 2017
Can. An amber beer with lots of sediments and a small white head. Floral hoppy aromas with pine, caramel and some malt. Taste is medium bitter and medium sweet with a nice malt character. Medium bodied with some carbonation, juicy and with a pine finish.

ogniskowicz (745) - POLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bardzo przyjemna IPA na dość nieoczywistym chmielu jak na SH. Aromat i smak cytrusowo-ziołowy, troszkę wręcz staromodny patrząc na inne chmiele, ale pijalność świetna. Dobrze ulokowane pieniądze.

mgajdaczewa (1860) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 16, 2016
W aromacie leśno - cytrusowo - ziołowe nuty chmielowe, leciutkie utlenienie, nieco słodu. W smaku las, zioła, cytrus, niewielka owocowość, goryczka średnia, krtka, bardzo lekko się pije. Płpełne w ustach. Świetnie wykonane piwo, ktre nie ma argumentw na więcej. Toż to tylko Nugget.

yngwie (16718) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2016
Can. A clear golden beer with a small, dense off-white head. Some lacing. Mostly fruity and piney aroma, lots of tropical fruits. Perhaps a bit weak on bitterness, but theres lots of tropical fruits as well. Hints of pale malts. Full body and a pleasant carbonation. Lasting fruity finish with a nice bitterness and pine cones. Delicious indeed. 161231

Type: 16-oz. can Glass: Beer Nerd tulip glass From: My cousin, Sam Price: N/A Purchased: N/A; Received on Nov. 30, 2016 Consumed: Dec. 5, 2016 Reviewed as: American IPA Misc.: Canned on Oct. 25, 2016 at 5:45 p.m. CT Thanks, Sam! Ive had one Toppling Goliath beer before and it was Pseudo Sue, the best pale ale I ever had. Was lucky enough to get that one from Sam and this one (Golden Nugget IPA) as well. I do not expect it to be as good, but I expect to be very good. Cant wait to try it. Poured a straw gold amber semi-hazy color with 3-to-4 fingers of rocky white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. World-class layered spiderweb foamy lacing. World-class retention. A good looking beer. (Sight - 4.50) Smelled sweet citrus, Citra, floral, pine, tropical, sharp grapefruit, tangerine, sugary orange blossom, leafy grass and herbal. Did not get Nugget on the nose. (Smell - 4.25) Taste followed the nose, maybe a tad thinner than I would have thought. Orange blossom, melon, cantaloupe, persimmon, floral, tangerine, orange rind, Nugget (not as woody as I would have expected), Citra, a touch of grapefruit, herbal, leafy grass and slightly woody pine. (Taste - 4.00) Medium-to-light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 4.00) This was a very good IPA. Would recommend it for sure. (Overall - 4.00) 4.09 91 A-

BlazerT (758) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Can. Shaker. Golden, medium hazy with medium to big, semi-thick, frothy, off-white head. Good head retention and lacing. Moderately malty and moderately to heavy hoppy (mainly piney, herbal, citrus - grapefruit notes), slightly oxidized (canned 25/Aug/2016). Taste id moderately sweet and moderately to heavy bitter. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, finish is piney, bitter, long and dry. Summary: Nothing really special, just a good, balanced, well drinkable IPA with moderate citrus and piney notes with some herbal accents. Podsumowanie: Kolejny, mały ołwerrejting ;) Piwo ok, spełnia kryteria stylu. Bazę stanowi grejfrutowo-leśno-sosnowa podbudowa chmielowa z rwnie silnym rdzeniem słodowym. Nie powala na kolana, można by postawić obok wielu amerykańskich IPA. Może do hamburgera czy hot-doga jest ok, ale dla mine to za mało.

Can. Clear golden/amber with light sediment and a creamy, lacey offwhite head. Aromas of floral hops, caramel, pine, resin. Medium bodied, soft cabronation. Smooth and creamy. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Juicy hoppy and caramel flavors into a delicious bitter finish.

Szopeen (413) - POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Złocista barwa, ładna piana efektownie zdobiąca szkło. Cytrusowy aromat, w smaku raczej wytrawne, goryczka średnio wysoka, krtka, nie zalega.
