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.

12 oz bottle, i think this one came from JB175. This is what I call the bonus king of bonus beers. I have recieved this as a bonus at least 5 times, and I thought I may as well rate it now and see if the trend continues. Pours yellow with a one finger pale white head. Aroma is dry and hoppy with not much in the way of west coast pine or any citrus. The taste is sweet, sharp and very drinkable. The softness and smooth silkiness of the palate is really a nice touch. Good work Troeg brothers.

henrikb (1260) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 29, 2007
Beautiful red amber body with a creamy off-white head, some lacing; Beautiful big deep hoppy sweet very US-style IPA nose; The body is soft but lack a bit of fill, big soft carbonation; Bitter fresh on a soft texture, has some length but i quite 1-dimensional. Very drinkable but a bit off balanced with its soft texture in the mouth and quite bitter dry finish. Thanks hopscotch!

Clear light amber. Small white fluffy head. Good hoppy aroma. Nice body that is creamy with a mild hop taste that is nice and fades well without being superhoppy. Refreshing.

sunevdj (3548) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 16, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2007 Big thanks to axilla for this one. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a white head. Smells of hops with pinapple. The beer is medium sweet and tastes mostly of hops with some fruity flavors of pinapple and grapefruit. Also some amber malts and eldeberry flour hints. Medium carbonation and body. Slightly dry and pilsnerish towards the end. Very bitter finish with some fresh hopsnotes. I had an older bottle (different label) a few weeks ago it seemed much more maltier. Nice with the IBU# on the bottle. Good stuff.
