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.

Tap into a snifter showing dark caramel brown with a finger of tarnished foam. The nose shows light pineapple and hints of pine. The palate is medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Very smooth mouth feel. Flavors of light cannabis and mild pineapple with a strong malt backbone. Moderate bitterness on finish.

Pours up a clear dark amber with a nice finely foamed white head. Aroma is nicely balanced; hops and malts. Notes of caramel malt and bright sweet citrus fruit with dank hops. Taste brings forth piney cascade hops, with a good malt backbone. Slightly bitter finish and aftertaste. A very good IPA.

Almost takes like a triple IPA because of the tar hints. Also really hard to call it an IPA because it's such a forward ale taste too but sooo hoppy that it is. Not a beer you can have a lot of but flavorful as heck. Bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
