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.

Golden Nugget - Toppling Goliath
American IPA
6% ABV
56 IBU

APPEARANCE: Pours a star-bright 24 karat gold with shimmering hints of apricot rim variations. Massive light fluffy white head. Very attractive beer especially in the natural light, the carbonation is really dancing.

AROMA: This is a very feminine beer, bouquet of rose petals, sweet perfume and baby powder. Hints of citrus fruit with a light nice pine sent. Very inviting nose that begs to be taken in.

TASTE: Clean, refreshing. The perfume nose translated into a nice honey taste up front. Caramel, pine and the rose petals I got on the bouquet come through. Floral and light with a slight bit of candied oranges and those peaches-O's gummy candies.

MOUTHFEEL: Lots of vivacious carbonation. Medium body. Crisp and clean with a great short dry finish.

OVERALL: This is only the second TG beers I've had, both have been really light and feminine in style. Very nice change up from the palate wreckers I usually go to. Very drinkable and I really was enjoying all the floral and perfume notes that came out in this ipa.

RATING: 4/5 Zombie Heads!
