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.

robinvboyer (3264) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
Deep copper, small white head. Big citrus aroma, loads of resins, and sweet caramel malts. Perfect mouth feel, solid carb. Incredible balance between the hops and malts. One of the most balanced ipas ive had in a while.

Bebum (334) - - APR 6, 2014
Amber/honey colored, clear, tall and persistent head. Yeasty, earthy nose. Full body, intense malt flavor, rich, good carbonation, assertive but smooth and very well balanced mouthfeel. Long, actually lingering palate, fruity finish. Bitter but not dry, Hoppy, emphasizing bitterness, more than aromatics, as the style demands. Not my favorite style but a delicious beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle as shown thanks to Lee. Pours a cloudy orange copper with thick off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong floral hop and honey. Medium mouthfeel with sweet hop and light bitter finish. Very good.

Bottle shared by the doubly awesome folks at Lazy Dog. Pours a nice amber with a layer of cream colored head. Aroma of yummy hoppiness. Taste of hops with a nice pine aftertaste.

SpongeRuiner (778) - Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Pours a deep copper color. Has a amber lager type smell. Not a whole ton of flavor. An amber almost lager like flavor following up from the aroma. With a hop finish. These specific flavors are so strong I find it hard to call it an IPA. Great for the style if you would consider it an amber. Not being my favorite style to say the least. Overall not bad. Was definitely expecting more though.

maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle Thanks to KyotoLefty. Big minty nose with hints of cinnamon. Copper color. Strong malty initial / decent balance in mid / sweetness dominates final. Medium body. Tasty, for sure, but maybe a little too sweet. But it definitely satisfies.
