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 in the finish.

Clear, light orange in color with a finger of head as I pour into a tulip glass. Thanks to Justin for picking this up at the brewery and sending to me. Aroma offers apricot, peach, and some citrus. Its very nice although it seems to fade quickly. Taste is earthy and bitter. Floral notes combine with tropical and stone fruit. Intense carbonation helps to add a burst of hops on the front end and a clean finish. This is a unique ipa. Glad I was able to try it.

L (4.25) - There's a fair deal of head at first pour. And a nice amber-gold color.
S (4.5) - Wonderful floral hoppy aromas. I wish this could be bottled and sold as air freshener!
T (4.5) - Exactly what you want and expect after smelling. Nice soft hop punch, with the floral aftertaste that lingers slightly. Not real bitter, not too over the top.
F (4.25) - This is a nice drinkable beer. No noticeable alcohol feel or anything noteworthy (good or bad)
O (4.5) - I'd had this one before, and bought again. This is a TG brew that is as good as offered. I'll buy any time I see it in the store.

Light/transparent gold color. Juicy pear, citrus, and pine. Big, tasty hop presence with great balance and a crisp body. Excellent, approachable IPA.
