COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Squeeze those hops for all they’re worth and prepare to pucker up: Tröegs’ newest single batch brew, Nugget Nectar Ale, will take hopheads to nirvana with a heady collection of Nugget, Warrior and Tomahawk hops. Starting with the same base ingredients of our flagship HopBack Amber Ale, Nugget Nectar intensifies the malt and hop flavors to create an explosive hop experience.

While the brewery considers this an "Imperial Amber Ale" RateBeer considers it an IPA due to the hopping rate. There is no need to send any other corrections on the style.

Pours orange red out of the bottle. Smells very nice, classic red ale fuses with a nice IPA. Taste is incredibly balanced. Nice malt backbone blended with citrusy hops, finishing with a nice hop bite. This is not a super crazy hopped beer, but it is a very enjoyable brew. Wish I had another bottle.

Bottle courtesy of Sammy: Poured a deep amber/orangey color ale with nice foamy head with some good retention and light lacing. Aroma of bitter hops is well balance with some malt. Taste is a good enough mix between some semi-sweet malt and some citrus and bitter hops. Full body with some medium carbonation. Overall, while I thought this was interesting beer, I still think it lack some hops to make this as hoppy as they claim it is.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2007
poured into a tulip. pours a golden cloudy amber. very fresh citrus/hoppy aroma. citrussy hoppiness, sweet and light on the palate with a mild bitter finish. great balance between sweet citrus and hoppy bitter, very good stuff. sweet on the front, bitter on the finish, with a great transition in the middle.

Thanks MP! Dark golden copper with medium head. Beautiful floral citrus aroma. Good IPA with lots of hops, but balanced just enough. Bitter finish.

Not as good as I heard everyone say it was. A bit of a dissapointment. Not my favorite ipa, although it does claim to be an "Imperial Amber Ale" on the label.

(Bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of orange, peach, pineapple, caramel and grapefruit. Flavor of toasted malt, citrusy hops, and caramel.

12 oz., delicious honey, floral hoppy, grapefruity aroma. Color is light yellow, not so great looking, head is meager. Body is very frothy in your mouth and hides any abrasive nature. As carbonation subsides, you find a slightly wet, medium body. First touch of the tongue reveals sweet honey. Tastes very much of grapefruit with some sourness accompanying the bitter finish. The bitterness has some mild off taste and sticks around a long time. Better off with lagunitas, dfh or hopdevil IPAs

This is a great hoppy beer. Hoppy and Malty. You can really smell the fruityness of the hops. It’s up there on the IPA list for me.

IrishBoy (3944) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Bottle from JB175; Nose of citrus and floral hops; copper-orange with a medium straw colored head; flavor showed lots of sweet caramel with some hop bitterness, well balanced, almost to much malt. This is an IPA I could drink all the time, you don’t notice the alcohol, but it is a little sweet for an IPA.
