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.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Slightly reddish honey body with thin loose head. Nose-clean resinous hops without the overly sweet stickiness I associate with this PNW style hops. Taste-medium bitter, grapefruit, piney, fruity pebbles, PNW hops, medium acidity, good CO2. An excellent example of how to use hops! The beer showcases all of the great hop flavors and lets them take center stage without trying to overpower them with a thick, syrupy, sweet malt bill. Excellently crafted and balanced. Only complaint is a slight medicinal aftertaste and finish, but with such a well-made beer, that is very easy to ignore.

Thanks Jeff. Light amber color with a full head of light taupe bubbles. Full fresh hops aromas, with fresh cut cedar and just a hint of oranges and grapefruit. LIght citrus throughout the sip with hints of pale malt and plenty of pine. A pure hoppy IPA. Really no fault in that, it is what it is, and one thing for sure is that it is just a good hoppy brew.

Overall a good beer.Nice thick head with a ruby color.Very hop-filled bite with alittle bit of a metallic finish.Would suggest beer is having a steak dinner and a crisp ale was recommended.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Light brown head. Impressive sight. Herbal and flowery aroma. Spiced and fruity. Flavour is citric piney and has a herbal and flowery fruityness. Is heavily bitter in the end. Quite easy to drink. Light warming. Full bodied. I really dig this one. Thanks to Mullman for this really really good IPA.

Fine off-white head, orangegolden colored. American hop nose with a nice refreshing fruityness and a light spicyness. Fruity and flower hoppy flavor with some sweetness under the bitterness. A bit of alcohol in the finish. A really nice and refreshing IPA! Thanks Mads!

zug4abby (288) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle obtained in a trade with the trade-tastic Illinismitty! Thanks Sean!!! Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a medium thick, fluffy head and lots of lacing. Aroma is like tomatoes or pizza sauce, i know it’s weird but that’s all i can smell in the beer! Flavor is hoppy and slightly bitter, but i’m having a hard time getting past the tomato smell in my nose. Dry and light on the palate and a very middle of the road beer for me. Thanks again Sean!!!

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 1, 2006

kkearn (1221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2006
12oz bottle from the Foodery. Pours a brilliant copper color with a one inch white head. Hop aroma dominates and is evident a foot away from the glass. Nice hop flavor up front, but gives way to a body that is much thinner than i expected. hop flavors lingered on my palate for a while.

csuders (30) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2006
pours with a dark yellow, almost orange color. has a sweet piney aroma. nice crisp smooth taste. a bit of bitter that is made all the better by the slight alcohol taste.

4.4
BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Piney like a Christmas tree. Bitter hop bite with a slightly sweet finish. ABV tasted higher than I thought it would have, alcohol added to the sweet spice flavor. Very good.
