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.

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.

Every year I look forward to the nectar. This year’s offering is just as good as the last. Hops in the nose, on the palate, and in the aftertaste. A great IPA.

16oz can pours an amber color with a bit of head. Hop profile balances nicely against the malt. Lots of malt.

voyageurmike (116) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Floral nose, ruby orange light bodied beer. Astringent almost rye flavor from this hops blend. Bitter finish.

krumbum (578) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Delicious sweet hop aromas. Very clear Amber light head. Hoppy but ballanced fragrance of the hops last. Sticky that Drys out nicely.

AdamT (220) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2015
12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Reddish/dark orange hue with mostly diminishing off-white head. Good lacing. Sweet floral and orange hop aromas. Sweet floral taste up front with more of a citrus hop finish. Fizzy carbonation on the palate.

njdrinker (13) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2015
An old style American amber with a bunch more hops on the end. This style is just not enjoyable to me at all. These hops don’t go well with all the damn sweetness in the beer. It is just clashing. No clue at all why this beer gets the ratings it does.

Spab (2670) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Growler from Premier Gourmet. Pours a clear copper colour with good-sized cream-coloured head with good retention. Aroma is big floral hops, toffee malt, grains and some pine. Flavour is quite rich‎ with lots of toffee, graininess, interesting floral hopiness and some pineiness. Plus body. Impressive.

tomer (1900) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 15, 2015
At a tasting, smallish head, clear deep orange, aroma of wood woth some biscuit notes and a hint of fruit, a touch sweet biscuity flavor with a shrubby bitterness, Nice and drinkable but too one dimensional.

Lutz2jm (167) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Pour is a red tinted golden color with a nice white head. Lots of lace on this beer. Nose of pine. Love the hoppy spin on this amber. I am a bit bias because I am a hop head. Great alternative to an ipa.

bennetporter (174) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Pours a dark amber/copper from a bottle. A great danky piney floral nose, balanced with a sweet caramel flavor and a kick of alcohol at the end. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
