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.

OldGrowth (2752) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2006
Bottle, from trade with Nejhleader. Real good nose, sweet. Pine, orange, little nuttiness/yeasty notes as it warms, toffee. Clean lite reddish orange, ok head that quickly faded to a ring. Bittersweet flavor, grapefruit kicks in, like aroma otherwise. Medium body, oily creamy mouthfeel, bitter gf finish. Tasty brew. Had a sample at Extreme fest, but had stopped taking notes. Impy amber indeed.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours a clean copper orange body with a thick off-white foam. Nose is hoppy and somewhat vegatable-like. Full bodied with flavors of bitter earthy hops with some bread, horseblanket, and tomato guts. All of that said...I really dig this beer.

thehinge (270) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 17, 2006
Lively orange pour with a white head. Bready aroma that I’m not in love with. It doesn’t lace much and appears to a little thin. Love it’s balance though....piney on the front end with a good hop bitterness in the finish. This one is for hopheads.

aracauna (3138) - Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2006
Pours a clear copper with a large, sticky head. The aroma is nicely hoppy and tingles the sinuses a bit. The flavor is less in-your-face than expected. There’s a bit of an egg-custard aroma under the hops. The bitterness tingles the tongue in a pleasant way, but is less assertive than expected. The maltiness is a nice caramel, but seems a bit one-dimensional and slightly candy-like.

can8ianben (1343) - Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2006
This is wonderfully plesant - big thick aroma, heavy sweet sour flavour, wonderffullly creamy head and body, just really really well done.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2006
Medium-amber color. Creamy off-white head. Hop aroma… piney cascade that have some stemmy edges that dry out the aroma. Nice hop flavor… a little grainy with some orange citrus and pine hops. Very smooth and creamy... nice balance. This is a pretty good IPA, but seems to have a lot of hype.

This IPA Pours an orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is sweet, pineapple, pine and herbal. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are piney and floral. Medium to highly bitter IPA. Nice blend of warrior and tomahawk hops. Nice orange malts. Nice balance. Very decent IPA. Lots of malt sweetness with all that hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2006 Wow. My wife brought some back from her recent trip to PA. This could replace Terrapin Rye as our daily beer. The aroma was something else. Very, very hoppy, but also with a different, more mellow, not so resin-based smell. The mouthfell makes one feel like you’re tasting nectar. No hop bitterness or chewiness. I hear that the lucky folks in PA can get this on Cask. I’m moving.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2006
Bottle. Pours amber\gold with a average sized off-white head. Aroma of pine wood smelling Hops, and citrus, and malts. The flavor is malty, slight sweetness up-front, citrusy, with a hoppy dry finish. Good healthy body, good brew.
