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.

Fine off-white head, orangegolden colored. American hop nose with a nice refreshing fruityness and a light spicyness. Fruity and flower hoppy flavor with some sweetness under the bitterness. A bit of alcohol in the finish. A really nice and refreshing IPA! Thanks Mads!

Bottle obtained in a trade with the trade-tastic Illinismitty! Thanks Sean!!! Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a medium thick, fluffy head and lots of lacing. Aroma is like tomatoes or pizza sauce, i know it’s weird but that’s all i can smell in the beer! Flavor is hoppy and slightly bitter, but i’m having a hard time getting past the tomato smell in my nose. Dry and light on the palate and a very middle of the road beer for me. Thanks again Sean!!!

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2006
12oz bottle from the Foodery. Pours a brilliant copper color with a one inch white head. Hop aroma dominates and is evident a foot away from the glass. Nice hop flavor up front, but gives way to a body that is much thinner than i expected. hop flavors lingered on my palate for a while.

csuders (30) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2006
pours with a dark yellow, almost orange color. has a sweet piney aroma. nice crisp smooth taste. a bit of bitter that is made all the better by the slight alcohol taste.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Piney like a Christmas tree. Bitter hop bite with a slightly sweet finish. ABV tasted higher than I thought it would have, alcohol added to the sweet spice flavor. Very good.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 17, 2006
(Bottle via trade with goldtwins, thanks Larry!) Pours a little hazy, yellowish-orange with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine. Mouthfeel very smooth, almost slick, a bit prickly. Sloppy spots of lacing. Flavor is mostly pine and a bit of fruitiness with a moderate bitterness overlaying. There is malt in there but I could almost "feel" it more than taste it. Finishes smooth, a little bitter. Good.

jordanartuso (26) - lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2006
pours clear orange with a small white head. very hoppy aroma with flowers and pine in the deep whiffs. i have to say i couldn’t remove this beer from within 4 inches of my face it smelled and tastes so good. nice balance between hops and malt. dry finish with nice hop bitterness. next year i’ll be buying two cases of this wonderful treat.

Clear orange colour with a small dense white head. Hoppy aroma with floral and pine notes and some pineapple fruityness along a balanced malty sweetness. Hoppy pineapple fruity flavor with a light malty sweetness. Dry finish with pine notes. Thanx to sk8viking for this one.
