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 in the finish.

Can dated May/09/16. Nose could've been more potent, but still enjoyable nonetheless. Taste is delicious piney and citrus, considerable astringency and a little bitterness. Finish lingers a bit with subtle astringency. Mouthfeel is really nice, just enough body but not too much, and the carbonation is solid. Really glad TG has distro to SDakota, very pleasant surprise on a trip back home.

Tasted in parallel with Pseudo-Sue. This is more aromatic and closer to an IPA. The flavors seems more complex and fill your mouth more thant pseudo-sue does. I judge it better although quite similar.
