Pint from the tap. Pours a copper/amber color with a medium sized white head. Really interesting, pretty color, for a beer like this. Wonderful hop filled aroma. Some grapefruit citrus, some pine, and a light fruitiness. Finishes with a touch bitterness. A very nice hoppy taste. A special brew here folks.

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 (896) - 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.

Aroma is citrus, wet hops and pine. The flavor is citrus, earthy malts, grapefruit, hop resin notes and a bitter/slightly tangy finish.

Happiness! Perfectly balanced ipa, beautiful dark amber color. Intense hops, floral, fruity, sweet, honey. So smooth. One of the best beers I ever had.

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.

ElGaucho (2161) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2014
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.

Growler from Joe Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Bright amber orange color. Medium-sized rocky beige head. Nice clinging lace. Earthy toasted malt aroma has notes of floral hops. Creamy mouthfeel with a delicious malty caramel and nutty character. The hops are the star here, with a subtle resiny presence takes over and dominates the mid taste and finish. There is a symbiotic balance that makes for a wonderful and complex IPA. Outstanding and worth seeking out!

Copper to orange. Thin off white head. Bright citrusy aroma. Enormous floral hop flavor obliterates any malt in place. Bit of a dry finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
