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.

Wygląda bardzo ładnie, piana drobna i bardzo trwała, kolor złoto pomarańczowy klarowne. Wzr. Zapach bardzo intensywnie chmielowy, żywiczno sosnowy z lekkimi cytrusami i leciutką słodowością. Ostry ale zarazem bardzo zachęcający. W smaku na start uderza chmielowość, cierpko żywicznie z dodatkiem owocw tropikalnych i trochę cytrusw. Bardzo wytrawne. Goryczka jest uderzająca, wysoka i cierpka, ale nie jest bardzo zalegająca. Taka średnio długa. Bezkompromisowe piwo, bardzo nastawione na czystość chmielową bez zbędnych nut słodowych. Dobrze, że chociaż trochę ananasa czy marakui wychodzi to delikatnie osładza odbir. Wysycenie średnio niskie. Pasuje mi.

sawbuck (717) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2017
Nice fresh aroma of pine, some citrus zest. Nice light golden color with a thick white head. Nice base of sweet malt. Bitterness layers in with pine, some pineapple, and a reprise of sweet malt. Bitterness is mild, but intensifies on the finish. Light to medium mouth feel. Not bad.

16 oz. can poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co., showing a lightly hazed, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of diminishing, off white foam, and web-like cling to the lacing. The nose was citrus as grapefruit & orange, maybe a little pit fruit, with a touch of pine, light caramel sweetness, and slight hints of mint & herb. Medium bodied, with average carbonation that presented a touch of seltzer-like quality, the taste was somewhat similar notes, adding earthy & rind-like bitterness, and some dryness to the finish. A little muddled, and not overly clean & bright, but a decent style rep.

Scipio (986) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Pours a clear golden with a full, foamy white head that recedes slowly. The aroma is tropical, pleasing, potent enough without being overpowering. We get pineapple, orange, grapefruit, pine, floral hops, and caramel. Of these, the grapefruit and pineapple stand tall. The taste is sweet and dry with some solid bitterness. Grapefruit and pine are strong, some floral and herbal hops come through, a little pineapple, and finally a little bit of caramel. The aftertaste is a long, bitter grapefruit. Medium in body, sticky and thick in texture, and lively carbonation. Its a good IPA.
