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.

Poured a nice yellow with a off white head, very sticky and lots of lacing.

The smell is light and citrusy with mild hops and a light bit of bready malt.

The flavor is good, but nothing special, a light slightly bitter and a big centennial like citrus quality. The malt is almost non existant, just a light bit of underlying sweetness.

The mouthfeel is light and a touch resiny.

This beer doesn't have any real faults, but is a bit on the boring side, was hoping judging by the name that it would have some nugget hop charachters, but there is none to speak of.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear darker golden huhue ith a one finger whiter head that leaves a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of earthy, herbal, tea, faint pine and citrus. Light sweet malts, just really herbal. Not digging this.

T - Taste is the nose, just in my mouth. Sigh. Tea, herbal earthy, a rather unappealing bubblegum taste that doesn't really fit with this beer. Argh.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, would like some more.

O - Overall I was incredibly unimpressed by this beer. Was just a mess for me.
