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, Im 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.

DocJitsu (1864) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Pours a slightly murky golden short white head with a gentle pour (WOB strikes again). Had a chance to pour that last bit from the bottom of the can in after taking a few sips, and a proud, well-retaining, rich, sticky off-white head appeared. Pineapple and orange bouquet immediately, with sweet, rich malt coming through after. Flavors follow suit. Not magical. Of course Im drinking a July 18, 2016 beer on February 17, 2017. Really disappointed, this being my first opportunity to ever get this beer.

Hell herb hopfiger Beginn, etwas muffig. Wenig bitter, mild herb, spritzig. Kurzer Nachhall. Gut. 10/8/9/8//9

Hier stinkst nach Gras 😉. Erdig wrziges Outfit und leicht harzige Hopfenaromatik zeichnen die ersten Momente aus. Der Trunk schon krftiger, klar bitter und gelungen angeweetet. Nice East Coast Stuff 😀....with a long and lovely Hopheadfinish...mitten im Wald. Klasse. A 0,5l Gift from Scootie F. Fresh Stuff from the US. 40 Days old ✨ CAN.

datrael (368) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Aromat piękny i intensywny- tropiki, szyszki chmielu, żywica, kwiaty, bardzo słodko. Średnio opalizujące, obfita biała piana zdobiąca szkło, barwa jasnego bursztynu. W smaku tropikalne i białe owoce, żywica, nieco cytrusw, nuty karmelowe, dość słodkie, goryczka grejpfrutowa. Ciało smukłe, aksamitne, bardzo pijalne. Świetna, pijalna, intensywna ipa, esencja stylu.

vincentvega72 (534) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2017 Mooi goudblond bier met parelende witte schuimkraag. Bloemig-fruitig aroma. Geuren en smaken van citrus, grapefruit, pomelo, tropisch fruit. Sterk bittere harsige afdronk. Mist klein beetje romigheid. Voor de rest prima ipa.

Tmoney99 (13994) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Can given by alexsdad06. Poured hazy dark golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a oily slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

SpringsLicker (3539) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Tall can. Mostly clear gold with a generous white head. Nice hop aroma The "citrus stand in the Florida pines after a light sun shower has added a faint moist earth note". The flavor is bitter front, middle and finish, but has a big juicy malt support along with it. Tasty stuff.

Pours a clear gold with white head. A strong aroma of tropical fruit, malts, citrus, and hops. A malt forward taste with caramel and tropical fruit with some pine and citrus hops. A bitter hop and sweet malt aftertaste.

mikeymike (64) - Kansas, USA - JAN 22, 2017
16 oz can. Pours a light copper/yellow with a billowy three finger head. Aroma is pine, grass, and a slight rosemary but all notes are muted. Taste is light pine with a moderate bitterness, but again, tastes are muted. Mouthfeel is effervescent, with a thin-medium body. Feels right for the style. Overall a solid IPA that wins in how everything is balanced, but doesnt have anything specifically stand out.
