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.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle, courtesy of Immy (thanks!), pours a clear light amber with an off-white head. Aroma of hops; citrus and pine, and maybe a bit off. Flavor is a mild bitter bite, but not much flavor comes along with it, a bit watery on the backside. Palate is medium, but thin. Not offensive, but just okay.

(Bottle,shared by Beermouth, thanx) Golden-yellow, clear and no head. At the tasting we al agreed; the aroma was the one of a cat-litterbox,mixed wih caramel. Soft mouthfeel, although the powerfull bitterhopping apears rather early and dominates into the very metallic finsh. Unbalanced brew.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Bottle. Assertive hop nose, minor crystal malt. Cat piss like flavor, overly bitter hops, ugly malt background. Don’t like this at all.

Suttree (6286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 11, 2007
I misread my notes and thought it said "Nugent Nectar" Now, regardless of how one feels about the Motor City Madman, that is just a disturbing image. Copper, with a nice foamy, soapy white head. Piney, junipery herbal aroma. Hops and malt seem to hit the tastebuds at the same time, so bready notes are mixed with spruce, caramel with pine, resin and citrus. Nice beer. Thanks to Springslicker for this one!

Stine (1772) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Clear golden amber color. Citrus hops, canned peaches and cut grass on the nose. A vague chlorinated urinal scent on the back end. Tastes of sugared grapefruit, bitter herbs, some pine resin. Smoked wood and sourness in the finish. Aftertaste retreats too quickly. Medium body, quite smooth, maybe just slightly watery. Not the best example, but reasonable. Thanks Jason!

Bottle from jb175: First, this beer says its an Imperial Amber on the bottle not an IPA, Cheapdarks review before mine seems to be on the basis of this being an ipa. On to the review: Pours a golden amber color with low carbonation and a nice carmel malt and fresh hop aroma. Flavor is malty but also pretty bitter for an amber but a little less than an ipa. Has a great floral fresh hop like flavor. Best amber i have had.

This beer was sampled on tap at the Bocktown in Robinson. For an IPA this was a little less than I expected, son. A color that is just a bit darker than pale yellow. Has a slightly strong aroma quite similar to B-O! The taste has a strong hoppy impact. But not like the typical IPA compact. The hops develop in the front of your mouth. In the back of the throat the hops are without! It lacks the back of the throat hop bitterness. It makes this brew enjoyable none the less. I taste and can like the character of this Indian pale ale. It is enjoyable without the insulting hurricane gale. The finish is so odd for an IPA beer. There is no back of throat bitterness, how queer! Probably the best of this style I think so far. My feeling of IPA has been set ajar.

This clear, medium amber colored brew throws up a huge, creamy, off-white head that lasts long enough to coat the sides of the glass as the level of the beer goes down through the sampling. The aroma is nicely mixed with nutty caramel malt and bready-cookie notes. A bit more malty than the usual IPA, this one can pull off being a malty IPA or a hoppy Amber ale. Dangerously easy drinker that I would gladly drink more of if it were readily available here.

12 oz bottle, i think this one came from JB175. This is what I call the bonus king of bonus beers. I have recieved this as a bonus at least 5 times, and I thought I may as well rate it now and see if the trend continues. Pours yellow with a one finger pale white head. Aroma is dry and hoppy with not much in the way of west coast pine or any citrus. The taste is sweet, sharp and very drinkable. The softness and smooth silkiness of the palate is really a nice touch. Good work Troeg brothers.
