Thank you Slatetank for sharing this with me. Ive heard a lot about this brewery and im excited that this was my first of their offerings. It pours a hazy golden color with an off-white cap. Some spotty lace clings to the glass.
The aroma includes notes of mango and caramel malt with plenty of hoppiness that comes across like melon or cantaloupe. Some alcohol adds to that fruity feel as it warms up.
The taste is pulpy and pithy with that previously mentioned melon or cantaloupe yeasty green feel. Some caramel grain sweetness with grass and fruity alcohol. This is modestly bitter and unique but im not completely sure if I like it.
This is a medium bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. It is very melon-like which I was not crazy about but overall it was decent and im glad I got a chance to try it. Thank you again Matt.

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!

Glass Used: Nonic
Appearance: Crisp golden color, with
Smell: A big blast of evergreen, floral and citrus fill the nose. A pleasant sweetness lingers in the nostrils after each whiff.
Taste: Lots of floral and herbal notes mingle with tropical citrus (pineapple-lime) followed by a mildly sweet malt foundation and ending with a pleasing astringent finish. The bittering hops linger around but does not overstays it's welcome.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and clean; bittering tang coats the tongue, but not in a negative way.
Overall: I really enjoyed this offering from TG. I put it above the XHOP series but a wee bit below PseudoSue. Thanks Pintofbrown for this excellent offering from TG.
