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.

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.
