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.

Thanks to my co-worked Luke for mulling these back to me!

Poured into a pint glass, the beer is a medium copper with a clingy & clumpy white head. It is chill hazed.

It has an aroma of citrus, pine, herbs and golden grains.

This one leads with pine resin and citrus and it’s a great 1-2 punch. Hops also have a tropical edge. There is some sweet cracker like taste from the malts and just a hint of plum.

The mouth has pretty high carbonation which scours away the hop goodness.

My second beer from this brewery and it is another tasty one. I’m now a fan!
