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.

Bomber from a trade...light peach color, thick white foam...Hop forward flavors of pine with mild citrus and starfruit flavors... mouthfeel is slightly oily with good carbonation...clean dry finish with just enough malt to balance... reminds me of MBC beers... Another TG winner.
