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 in the finish.

A: Finger tall soapy looking,white foam that sustained for a long time. When the head did fall it left a coat of lacing on the edge of the snifter, the full hight of the head. Near crystal clear straw to golden yellow color beer with no sediment.

S: Medium pine tree hop aroma with slight apple, cherry fruity undertone. Mild sweet bready malt aroma reminiscent of hot buns coming signature Golden Promise.

T: Moderate bitterness with refreshing pine and slight citrus (orange peel). The hop flavors continue in the middle with more brighter pine tree and grassy notes. The malt flavor stays subdued but the slightly sweet bready, doughy flavors meld in the middle before giving way to toasty finish. Balance is on the hops. Mostly clean fermentation character though I might be getting some esters at warmer temps.

M: Resiny oily stickiness on the tongue after a few sips that leaves a course like feeling when it goes away. Moderately bodied mouthfeel with medium carbonation. The finish is moderate but the harshness gives more impression of body then there is.

O: Pine forward with a slightly sweet malt profile. Middle of the road IPA as far as the flavor profile in my book, but well brewed like the other TG beers I’ve tried.
