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.

Solid pour. has a solid body for an IPA, and it was a great amount of bitterness.

Wow! A nearly perfect beer. Very hoppy, yet not too bitter. Troegs has come through once again!

Nice amber beer with an excellent nose. This is one of my favorites. Just enough malty sweetness to balance out the hop bitterness at the end. I like the fact that this is an amber, because it gives it a little different taste.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear, golden-orange color; white head with excellent retention and lacing; a beautiful pour. Sweet, refreshing aroma, showing plenty of watery orange and citrus and light malt character. Full mouthfeel: lively carbonation; chewy orange and grapefruit and citrus hops, backed up by a sweet maple syrup backdrop; well-balanced and ridiculously tasty. Slightly dry finish, showing citrus and brown sugar. So damn good.

This is very good, although I’m amazed that it’s in the 98th percentile right now (251 previous ratings). The aroma is the strongest character by far. Very piney and sweet. It pours with a nice sized head. The flavor is pleasantly bitter without going overboard but it leaves a bit of a sour aftertaste that lingers too long. I totally dig the ABV though, it’s very subtle and appreciated.

what exactly is an imperial amber? well it turns out it is an IPA, which this site has confirmed. A little too sweet for my liking but it does include a rollercoaster mixture of hops. Just in too syrupy of a fashion. No way is this beer in the 98% percentile.

What a great beer. The aroma is pine. The taste is piney bitter. For a South Jersey Piney, this is as good as it gets. This should be brewed in Atsion using cedar water, not Harrisburg.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 12 oz bottle-pours a foamy to rocky light tan head that laces and amber color. Aroma is cascade hops. Taste is cascade hops-bitter, medium malt, alcohol. OK carbonation.

Indescribable! One of my all time favorites. Pours copper with a fluffy head.Lacing is average. Aroma of pine is present when the bottle opens. Hops, malts are perfectly balanced. Smooth with no overbearing alcohol taste. I wish this was brewed year round.
