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.

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
An orange beer with a thick white head. The aroma is lovely hoppy and grassy. While the flavor is a dry hoppy and grassy on a malt and caramel background. The after taste is good with lots of hops, but I find the flavor in general a bit light, and also the body a bit light inspite of the 7.5% ABV.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle, from trade with theepeeist. A clear, pale golden beer with a minimal beige head. Resins, pinecones, citrus and a sweetish maltyness in the aroma. Fine bitterness in the finish, with citrus and resins in the initial flavor. Fine malty base. Full-bodied. A quenching and easy drinkable beer blending hops and malts nicely in an unbalanced way. 090828
