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.

Since delving into the microbrew realm, this is my favorite sofar. Beautiful amber color with hoppy aroma. Great flavor and crisp finish. Awesome!

UPDATED: APR 8, 2018 Can from half time in Poughkeepsie. Malts really shine with deep hops or compliment it. A bit of herbs and vegetables swimming in there.

Golden/copper color, with frothy creamy head. Aroma/Taste: Grapefruit, pine, pineapple, mango and lemongrass. Crisp medium dry finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2018 A deep unique red color not seen too frequently. Very pleasant nose, one that is unique as well. Definitely a solid beer that I stock up on as soon as my local bottle king receives it.

Very nice initial taste. Very bitter and dry after taste. Great color and smell to it though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2018 2/21/18 Had with Abby after a looooong day of thoracic surg. Made her French toast and chocolate strawberries. Poured from bottle. Deep amber with moderate head. Nose is all piney hops. Floral and inviting. Taste is similar. Floral and piney. Bitter with a bit of malty sweetness. Not as sweet/malty as I expected from it technically being a red ale. Medium feel. Somewhat sticky with lingering bitterness. Overall, a fantastic beer! Tastes more IPA than “Imperial Red Ale.” Very hoppy and very delicious!

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2018 It poured gold with a white head. The aroma was hoppy with floral notes and some carmel in the taste. It was mildly bitter but boozy.

Draft pint at Winking Lizard Peninsula Ohio. Thinner white head, some film on glass. Deep golden in color Earthy and hoppy in aromas. Taste is earthy and smooth. Alcohol is well hidden. Pretty decent India pale ale. Drinkable. Cheers!

Hands down one of my favorites. Love Troegg's, and enjoy the nugget nectar a lot. Love when it comes around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
