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.

Troegs Nugget Nectar Ale is amber with a white head. Lots of malt and hops in the flavor. A very good and hoppy amber ale. It wasn’t as hoppy as most IPA’s but I thought it was good and very well balanced.

Thanks Mike. Copper pour, medium white head with lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is grassy, citrus, grapefruit and malty. Flavor is malty, biscuit and crisp tasting. Lots of clean hoppy goodness as with the aromas, grassy and just clean with low bitterness. Biscuit malt on the finish which I love, a hopped up amber is never a bad thing.

riversideAK (6231) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle from mwelsh13. Strong juicy fruit hop aroma. A little perfume too. Copper pour with a lasting white head and great lacing. Moderate floral bitterness as well as apricot, tangerine, light citrus, etc. Nice caramel malt balance creates a very fruity effect with this one. A clean bitterness with some lingering floral hops.

Thanks MuenchenerKindl for this one The bottle poured into a standard pint glass produced a good three fingers worth of white head on top of a brilliantly clear amber body .The head dissipated to a nice thin coating of lace that slides down the glass Aromas’ of pine and spruce it smell like walking in the woods on a nice summer day Tastes of hops not overly bitter the sweet malts flavors help smooth it out Nice crisp mouth feel with enough carbonation for your tongue I’ll say it like everyone else if you’re a hop head you have to try this one. It’s a great beer, but I don’t know if I’d drink more than a couple in one sitting

Bottle. Pour an amber with a small disappearing head and nice lacing. Smells of lots and lots of hops. Tastes of hops and grapefruit. Tons of bitterness. The finish is a little strong for my taste.

Clear orange amber with nice white fluffy head. Big floral fruity apricot hops aroma. Nice palate, not watery at all - just so smooth and creamy. Nice palate and nice flavor - not as bitter as the smell suggests. Decent hops flavor - I just wanted more of it!

Poured amber with a fluffy off white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and pine. Very refreshing IPA that finished wet.

treadyroc (150) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Pours a clear dark copper with a quickly diminishing head. Hop aroma persists straight from the start, & is strong through the middle of the tongue; very pleasant. Finishes crisp, but also leaves you with a taste. Dubbed an "imperial amber ale," & kind of reminds me of the Oskar Blues Gordon a bit.

Tasting @ Capone’s: This was a huge, hoppy beer. The color was amber with a nice head. The aroma was of hops, hops and more hops. This one made my tongue tingle. The flavor had some hints of citrus but it was dominated by the bitter hops. This is definitely a sippin beer, just not my style.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2008
12oz bottle. Thin quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with some pine, but doesn’t smack you in the face in the same way as as most 2IPAs. The hop flavor is where this beer really shines, lots of Summit hops followed up by some well balanced sweet malt and a touch of astringent bitterness. Overall well balanced and a bit dangerous at a deceptive 7.5%. Excellent session beer for hopheads.
