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.

Can from Tavour. Good head and lace. Clean but a little simple. Slightest hint of resin. Dry, hoppy palate. A little bitter. It's solid but not great.

16floz can, 06.06.2017 (unknown if BBD or COD), $2.50 as a single. Appears that this was brewed at Lakeland Brewery in Florida. Poured into a mug glass where it appears yellow with a nice amount of white head. Piney-citrus aroma and taste set to a medium-full body. This is fine, but a run of the mill AIPA.

Ktwse (5253) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2017
Pours cloudy amber with fairly tall white head. Aroma of pine and resin, citrus and grapefruit. Taste is fruit sweet up front followed by a rich hoppy finish. Light and slightly oily body with average carbonation.

poisoneddwarf (2603) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2017
16 oz can from a four pack, bought in Duluth, MN. Aroma is dank green bud, skunkweed, moist vag, armpits, earth. Those aren’t very appetizing descriptors, but they work together. Pours hazy golden with a bone white head with good retention. Taste is lightly bitter with matching flavors, some light citrus. Not bad.

Smells super hoppy, good punch with a real smooth finish. Pretty easy drinking but leaves a small warming feeling behind. Overall great brew, strong hop! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Four pack of tallboy cans from HyVee in Iowa City. Pours out a slightly hazy light golden color. Thin white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Fresh citrus, pine and floral spice notes. Medium body. Long dry bitter finish. Well done.
