22 oz. bomber that theoretically has a late December date on it that I can’t see. But I’m old. I can barely see my big print computer screen. Split with my wife. At least I hope that’s my wife.

The pour is NE IPA cool before NE was cool, or some such nonsense Opaque orange. Smells like every yellow & orange fruit in the world was dropped into a horse-sized blender. Nice.

Nugmo is so dry my asshole is puckering. The tropical fruitiness is overwhelming & unique in a weird way, like there was some fruit with a spiky outside picked from the Lord of the Flies island & dunked in the beer. The dankness is complementary rather than off-putting, hardened pine sap, pineapple, peach. Dry dry dry. Nice to be able to drink plenty of this. I’d take my wife’s half, too. That’s my wife, right?

This is what happens when T.G. is on their game. Excellent beer.

A - Super opaque, light orange with a shadow cast, white head, full and fat, with a light orange cast and while it fades some, it persists with a thick rocky cap, and lacing which is both thick and ropy.

S - Superb nose full of mango and peach, old school orange juice, and a undercurrent of grapefruit and zest. Holy cow, what a nose.

T - And what a taste! Delicious full fruit range, lots of stone fruit and citrus, a strong grapefruit bite, and a tart finish with bitter pith undercurrents that lingers. What a great juicy experience.

M - Pillowy softness, a bit of dryness, and definite resin residue that lingers on the tongue.

O - This is a phenomenal beer. It defies easy categorization, but whatever inspires it, this is a delicious beer out of NE Iowa!

Pours pale hazy orange with a beautiful white head with fair retention and lacing

Pineapple, mango, orange, pungent and earthy

Tangy, good bitterness, mango. Pineapple grapefruit and some lemon.
Nice balance of hops and malt.

Medium body, creamy, medium carbonation

For me, fantastic beer, not the best of the best, but a top shelf beer.
