thanks to Weinando for the trade -enjoyed chilled from the bomber in a willybecker.
The color is deep golden clear with 2 fingers of white cream crowning with fine bead. The smell is strong with hop scents that are herbal with lots of floral nad slightly lemon rind in the nose with slight grass and pine odors. The feel is great moderately bitter with medium carbonation and some spice in the texture with slight tangy feel and gentle malt backing with semi-dry finish and very low alcohol/sweetness in general
The tast has a very intense nugget influence right off -of course with dank earthy and tangy citrus rind floral notes and slight astringent aspect in the background with the floral citrus being the most dominant in the taste with the golden promise adding a slight sweet quality to balance and moderate orange rind comes to mind with low astringency in the mostly dry finish. Overall excellent IPA in every sense -not as complex as some blended hop IPA's but Nugget holds its own well in this - thanks again Ryan!

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.

Backlogged review from when I had no service/Wifi in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, ND. Full notes taken to my phone.
A- Semi hazy golden body with some apricot hues as light is shining through. A creamy white head rises up to one finger with decent retention. The small small ring remaining leaves webs and spots of lacing.
S- Juicy fruit hops are the emphasis with canteloupe melon and mango really coming to mind. Some citrus, tangerine and floral as well as dank mint. Pretty much clean besides light honey, caramel cracked grains.
T- Citrus comes to life a bit more as well as a slight bit of pine joining in with the juicy nectar feel. Mint, tangerine, apricot, melon and cantaloupe with grapefruit and oranges. Very clean almost impressively so for the ABV and the citrus builds with time.
MF- Body is of medium thickness with a lightly creamy-fizzy texture. Carbonation on the high side pushing the hop and the moderately high bitterness in the finish.
Juicy cantaloupe and melon at first but a zesty grapefruit citrus and some resinous pine comes out with time. Another great hoppy brew from TG.

Had on tap at Alchemy cafe 7/13 but have also had a handful of bottles as well
Pours a semi-hazy golden orange color with about an inch of white head
Smells of citrus with only a mild pine or resin scent
Tastes of citrus fruits.. Grapefruit mango and a hint of pineapple.. Delicious
Overall.. This was one of my favorite beers before I had it on tap.. Now it jumped to my top 10.. Keeping in line with a very common theme TG has another beer that should be sought after.. Congrats
