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.

Tasted at Troegs with ML. Pours orange-amber; white head. Aroma is canned peaches, citrus, and hops. Flavour is pleasant sweet malts, citrus, and dry hops. Very nicely balanced. Moderate body. Perfect for a patio when you have spring fever!

TXBadger (1219) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2014
Pours a yellowish pale red. Nugget hops on the aroma, pine and grapefruitiness. Grapefruit and lemon are the present hop flavors, with just a little grass and floral note. Nice malt backbone to round it out.

islay (1057) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2014
Approximately 3 oz. pour from 12 oz. bottle provided by falco242. Consumed on 4-19-14. Initially sweet and malty aroma features yellow plum and golden raisin scents. Then a piney hops presence developes in the nose. Pours a clear brass/amber with taupe head. Good lacing. Very nice, dry, piney flavor. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Quite a good beer.

Best imperial double IPA. Only beer to be completely balanced. There is a tremendous amount of hops in here, but it is truly in concert with the abundance of flavor. Not for the west coast IPA fans. This is an east coast monster

I wish I had more of this. My dad got a single bottle in a mix-a-six, and I got half the bottle. I wish I had some notes to take when I was drinking it. This is one of the better IPAs I’ve had. The nose is great and all, but the taste is the best part. Nugget Nectar promises and delivers some massive hops, but it has plenty of sweetness from malts with the tropical notes on the nose and palate. Really a delight to drink. It’s got an incredible balance. It has that IPA bitterness, but the juiciness cuts through it almost just as quickly. Pine, tropical fruits, and definitely citrus come through a lot on this one. This is most definitely more of a midwest tasting IPA with its super enjoyable bittersweet combo. Truly excellent, and one of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Rich, sweet, fruity, hoppy aroma. Slightly hazy dark amber body. With a thin off white to almost tan head and excellent lace. My wife was drinking a beer she thought was excelsior lonely blonde and one look at it and I knew it wasn’t. Turns out a.bottle of ballast point sculpin was in a 6-pack carrier of lonely blonde and she didn’t look at the bottle while she was pouring. Anyway, I tasted it just before this and then realized we were both drinking 100-100 beers. This one certainly matches up to the sculpin. Perfect balance, piney hop, yet with a fruity, floral finish. Truly outstanding.
