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.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 I had this beer at the brewery a few days before it was ready to bottle, a few minutes after it was bottled(still had foam at the top) and at the brewery before it went on sale. It is truly well balanced higher hopped beer. If you didn?t like ipa?s then you should atleast try this one.

Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is a melon hop with some pine and caramel malt. Flavor is a fruity hop with a manageable bitterness. I also get some heavy but not overly sweet malt and a little resin left on the tongue. This was a decent beer but a bit too much malt for my liking. It’s not a sweet malt bomb but also not a real hop bomb as well.

35 cl can a fiend brought from NY. Dark amber color, clear, thick creamy offwhite head. Fresh resiny smell. Aroma is resiny, hoppy (dry hopping), caramel malts, yeast, a burnt note, some fusels, vague fruityness, minerals. Taste is structured, balanced, bitter. Texture is quite thick, average carbonation, full body. Aftertaste reminds me of dogfish iipa, mild alcoholic leftover. Quite nice.

Amazing seasonal release from Troegs Aroma: Intense floral Hops; sweet nectar goodness. Appearance: Beautiful Amber Color; Clear; frothy head Taste: Medium sweetness from the nectar, heavy bitter cause of the hops = amazing flavor. Palate: Full body with Slick & thick texture; Nugget Nectar is a lively beer with a sweet & bitter finish. Overall: Always look forward to this time of year where Troegs releases this gem!

Bottled. Pours beautiful clear red. The aroma is hoppy. Lemonish. Palate is nice a juicy and sticky. The taste is big hops. The blueberry and berry pops out. Big resin piney taste. Dry aftertaste. The Amber malty backbone is strong and present. Awesome beer.

Plain and simple this beer gets it all right! The color is a deep amber with a good amount of foamy white head. The smell lets you know you’re getting a hoppy beer with enough malt to hold it’s own, notes of citrus, pine, and caramel. The flavor follows suit balanced well with hoppy bitterness and malt sweetness. I waited a long time to finally get my hands on this and I am not being let down at all.

Tognetta (849) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 31, 2017
Âmbar translúcida, espuma alaranjada de ótima formação e persistência. Aroma bastante floral lupulado, resinal, manga madura, pinho em menor intensidade, leve malte, não tem o que melhorar, só levou 9 porque perdeu parte da intensidade com tempo de copo. No paladar resina se traduz em médio amargor e leve dulçor, incrível com o malte se faz presente em equilíbrio. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final perde um pouco do frescor inicial mas mantém o lupulado e leve malte amadeirado/caramelado bem distintos. Maravilhosa.

A very pretty beer, pours from bottle a clear punch color (pinkish auburn) that wouldn’t be confused with amber in good light. The one-finger ivory head dissipates very fast, but does leave some lacing and a hint of skim. Nose is pine resin and a whiff of citrus. Unfortunately, the taste doesn’t get much more complex than that. The palate does add a hint of strawberry and some malt sweetness. That doesn’t predominate but balances the hops a bit, so that it’s not as harsh as the 93 IBUs would suggest. Under the pine, there’s grass, and a slight touch of meatiness as it warms, which is probably the best way to drink this. Not terrible in a pinch, but mainly one for hop festishists.
