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.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a medium amber with a thin fizzy head. Good lacing on the glass. The aroma is of piney hops with a hint of sweetness. The flavor is all hops, with a hint of malts. A very bitter finish that lingers on. Medium mouthfeel makes this very easy to drink.

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

Benzai (14663) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
Bottle @ home. Clear amber golden color, full sized white head. Aroma is malts, hops, lightly strawberry jam, lightly floral. Taste malts, hops, again a sweetish hint of strawberry, but also some caramalt and malt bitter. Decent to medium body and carbonation. Hmm a little disappointing, or perhaps I just don’t like this hop - combination. Label says "an explosion of pine, resin and mango", but I didn’t get that unfortunately.
