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.

Pours a frothy, resiny, white head that has great persistence and laces well. Wow. An amazing, rich pine/citrus hop aroma. This is just bursting with aroma. Radiantly clear gold color. Starts with an intense bitterness; heavy citrus rind with pine. This subsides for a moment to let a touch of malt through, then intensifies again; more citrus rind. The finish is wonderful; citrusy hop resin with a nice "green" aspect to it.

I grow Nugget hops, and this smells exactly like a harvest. I can't get over how awesome this smells. The initial flavor is a little off-putting, but as it lingers and mellows, it becomes absolutely wonderful.

Clear dull straw color body. Fast dissipating head. Lovely hoppy aroma. Nice bitter taste. Not very much malt character, just the way I like it. Very good.
