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.

Beautiful copper pour. Frothy head. Aroma of hops and light malt aroma. Tastes starts off lightly sweet of citrus fruits. Finishes with a hop bitterness.

12oz thanks beastiefan2k - Now this is what I’m talking about! Aroma is strong pine tar hops with caramel and crystal malts fighting for attention. Pours transparent copper with a small head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the piney hops adding a chewy earthy quality in the finish. Palate is sticky and tart. Very tasty if you like hops.

Copper pour with a frothy off-white head. Pine/grapefruit/floral hop aroma. Flavor initially sharp, marked by pine and grapefruit hops. After a bit it comes across as more orangey with a smooth and even tea-leaf hop bitterness. Nicely put together east coast IPA.

Pours an amber-orange color with a crisp white head. Nose is a citrus-piney aroma. Taste is totally dominated by hops and is very drinkable. Finishes with a hint of orange and hops. Great brew!

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 Pours a clear and bright orange-amber color with a small head that has a tint of rust. Nose of floral and piney hops with honey. Bitter hits you in the face and stays there. A lot of earthy flavors with pine and grapefruit rinds. A little bit of caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. I know my first rating of this said that it wasn’t well balanced, but I think I was in a hop-hating mood the night I drank it. This is beautifully balanced and a really delicious beer.

Amber-colored pour has an intensely hoppy nose with lively resin and citrus. Palate is smooth with lively carbonation. Flavor is basically a hop showcase with many nice pine and citrus notes. The finish is mouth-puckering and dry in a testament to the ibu level. Somehow this seems balanced and is incredibly drinkable, even though the hops totally dominate. I am glad I sought this one out.

Poured a very orange color with a nice slightly off-white head. The smell was very fruity with a bit of alcohol. The taste was very nice. Pineapple and citrus were the first flavors coming through. As the beer warmed up, the malt came through a lot more and had a distinct biscuity taste. Very smooth and delicious beer. I wish it wasn’t so hard to get a hold of!

12oz. Pours orange to copper with a nice white head. This struck me like a glass of orange juice. Good bitter and citrus fruits that do well with acidity and a blast of hops on the finish. Surprisingly drinkable, I could see this being a daily drinker.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Beautiful copper color. Very cedar-like slightly metallic aroma. Hint of sweetness in the flavor is scrubbed clean with the spicy hop finish.
