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.

56 IBU

Golden Nugget - Toppling Goliath
American IPA
6% ABV
56 IBU

APPEARANCE: Pours a star-bright 24 karat gold with shimmering hints of apricot rim variations. Massive light fluffy white head. Very attractive beer especially in the natural light, the carbonation is really dancing.

AROMA: This is a very feminine beer, bouquet of rose petals, sweet perfume and baby powder. Hints of citrus fruit with a light nice pine sent. Very inviting nose that begs to be taken in.

TASTE: Clean, refreshing. The perfume nose translated into a nice honey taste up front. Caramel, pine and the rose petals I got on the bouquet come through. Floral and light with a slight bit of candied oranges and those peaches-O's gummy candies.

MOUTHFEEL: Lots of vivacious carbonation. Medium body. Crisp and clean with a great short dry finish.

OVERALL: This is only the second TG beers I've had, both have been really light and feminine in style. Very nice change up from the palate wreckers I usually go to. Very drinkable and I really was enjoying all the floral and perfume notes that came out in this ipa.

RATING: 4/5 Zombie Heads!

Pour is mostly clear golden amber with an off white creamy head and a strong lacing. Nose has a fair bit of floral notes, some tropical fruit and ripe grapefruit. Taste follows suit perfectly, floral presence, moderate grain bill underneath and a hint of caramel malt with an assertive tropical fruit finishing strong grapefruit but light hop bitterness. Assertive carbonation, medium body, good feel, semi dry finish.

Serving type: growler
