Notes/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.

Golden Nugget has a big grassy, herbal hop nose.
It pours brilliant straw gold under a 2” off-white foam cap that produces good lace.
The palate starts with rich malt sweetened with caramel, biscuit and sweet tropical fruit flavors that support rich, herbal hops that grow richer as the beer warms. There is some hop based astringency on the finish but it is balanced by malt sweetness.
The beer has medium body and carbonation.
