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.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Pours orangy/amber with a nice orangy/tan creamy head. Powerful piney grapefruit hoppy aroma, with a big semi-sweet malt presence. Flavor is a bit less bitter than expected, but still plennty of hops, and very nice balance with the lightly sweet roasty caramel malts. Palate is medium, slightly oily, light bitterness, and dry. Great balance, and super easy drinking. Best troegs I’ve had yet, damn good.

bfeldmann (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 15, 2007
Poured an amber color with small head great lacing throughout. Aroma was of pine and citrus hops. Flavor was caramel and the citrus and pine hops. Good balance and not to sweet. Good IPA it was stronger then i thought it was going to be.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Poured from 12oz bottle into my Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a clear golden amber. Slight head that quickly recedes back into the beer. Smell is heavenly hops. Not a barrage of hops, but a good hop presence in the nose. Taste is bittery hops. Some nice, juicy, citrusy hops. Not overly bitter or tongue thrashing. This is a very toned down Dreadnaught. It’s quite good, but just isn’t the powerhouse that I was expecting. The mouthfeel is crisp and medium bodied. This does come across as something that would be highly sessionable. It being more reserved makes it much easier for more than one of these to go down.

bgburdman9 (861) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Pours a nice light brown color with some orange and pinkish color to it and a small white head. The aroma was very strong hops mostly piney and flowery. Flavor had a pretty solid bitterness that lasted the entire taste. The body seemed pretty light but i didnt notice any alcohol coming through at all. Pretty good ipa.

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