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.

This is a phenomenal beer, nice malt to hop ratio if you get the chance to try it do. I had a nice review made up but once again this website screwed that up. Do yourself a favor and try any TG beers you can . I am thankful for my friends that have hooked me up on these. They are very earthy grainy well balanced beers. This one is a bit more assertive on the hop profile but not overly so. Its a nicely balanced beer and I think the reviews on this one will grow. This is a bit underrated!

Sweet tropical fruit and a certain floral grassy note.
Taste is loads of tropical fruit in the front and the perfect amount of bitterness left on the palate.

Very easy beer to drink!
