  • Canned on 3/31/20. Purchased from Iron&Glass; in Romeoville.

    Pours NEIPA cloudy. A couple of inches of white foam. Good retention with the foam frothing as it recedes. Thick lacing that clings.

    Aroma of orange and ripe tropical fruit. Sweet. Mango and papaya.

    Taste follows the nose. Up front and lingering is sweet orange. Tropical fruits are more subdued but still factor.

    Medium body with medium carbonation. Juicy up front, drying the lips. Bitterness lingers with hints of sweet orange, tang like.

    The color on this beer is perfect: bright golden orange. The aroma is slightly more appealing than the taste but both are solid. The sweet orange finish is nice in its lingeringness. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Hopped with El Dorado and Citra, Gilded King is dripping with hop riches. Expect hop aromas and flavors such as orange citrus, tropical fruits, and candied watermelon that are fit for royalty.
