Golden Nugget IPA
Toppling Goliath Brewing Co
A Note on This Beer
Dubbed by Draft Magazine in 2013 as “one of the top breweries to watch,” Toppling Goliath Brewing Company rose from prospect to superstar in less than three years. The Chicago Tribune even lauded these young guns as the 2nd best brewery in the world-- and their breakthrough brew was the Golden Nugget IPA.
The story of Golden Nugget begins when a guy walks into the taproom and says “I’ve got a front-yard filled with sticky hops right next door, you want them?” TG took these tropical, sweet evergreen hops, brewed their Golden Nugget IPA and a hop legacy was born.
Riding the same wave of flavor intensity as pseudoSue, Golden Nugget IPA lands on the herbal, piney part of the hop spectrum. Nugget Hops deliver a world-class payload of resiny sap laced with juniper and spruce. Hints of zesty pomello leave a citrus rind bitterness that cuts through the evergreens along with a clean, crisp body of floral merriment.
Copycat recipes for Golden Nugget clones are bountiful, everyone who can’t get their hands on this rare brew takes a crack at making it themselves. Sorry cloners, some replicates come close, but nothing beats the original.
There’s no questioning this beer’s place among the best-in-class of American IPAs. It’s been sampled more than most, and for good reason. Over 50k Untappd check-ins later Golden Nugget’s rating is a stellar 4.03, the people have spoken.
