A Note on This Beer
Golden Nugget IPA effectively launched Toppling Goliath to craft beer superstardom. Yet, not one drop of that juicy nectar has come off their production line since 2019.
Today’s Imperial Golden Nugget marks the long-awaited return of TG’s breakthrough IPA. Only this time, the Decorah, Iowa-based brewery beefed it up with more Simcoe and Amarillo Hops, and a rowdy 8% ABV!
Invigorating aromas of fresh pine billow up from the straw-golden pour. On the first sip, silky waves of hazy juice carry flavors of navel oranges, ripe pineapple, and bursting berries, with a touch of grapefruit pith in the middle. A sweet caramel taste mixes with hints of grass on the finish.
The story goes that TG made the original Golden Nugget after a faithful fan walked into the taproom and said, “I’ve got a front-yard filled with sticky hops right next door, do you want ‘em?” Co-founder Clark Lewey gladly took them off his hands, crafted that famous hopbomb, and the rest is history.
