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.

Clear, amber orange body topped by a small almond hued head that has good retention and nice lacing. Hop aromas of grapefruit, orange, and pinecone dominate. Medium body with good carbonation. Taste is a delicious blend of soft caramel malt and assertive fruity hops. Ruby red grapefruit, mostly, with notes of cut hay, pine, and orange. Subtle malt presence suggests clover honey. Excellent!

Big hoppy nose--tons of grapefruit, some pine, and a nice caramel sweetness. Clear copper in color, with a lovely sticky off-white head. Really wonderfully balanced flavor: Tons of those fruity hops, of course, but they’re backed by a nice sweet, but not cloying, malty backbone. Up there with the better double IPAs, for me.

What an intense IPA this is! My neighbor in Harrisburg has made a beautifully bitter IPA that wakes the taste buds up and smacks them in the face. Grassy citrus aroma with a bitter hop taste make this beer explode with flavor. Not too overbearing on the hops or the malt which comes out in the end. This stands up to any IPA I have tasted.

Nice hoppy smell. Pours copper with small offwhite head. Nice sweet, almost citrus taste. Decent hop kick, but with nicely balanced malt. Hides alcohol well. Medium bodied. Good stuff.

Pours a light orange. Smells fantastic, by smell alone I thought I was in for a two hearted, but I was wrong. The taste at first is almost sweet, but not yet floral. Then the hops really kick it, straight nectar style, then you get another taste of sweet, maybe citrus???
