Review taken Beginning of March 2014(day it arrived)
12 oz brown bottle with a really stellar label. A hop head no doubt absolutely squeezing the life along with all the fresh hop juices and oils straight from the hop itself. Label is of reds, oranges, and yellow. Just a fantastic bottle to look at. Poured into a standard American pint glass.
A - nearly crystal clear body. Amber red in color with shades of copper orange when in the light. Thick white head on the pour carries a really nice creamy appearance to it. Head slowly turns into a lovely covering of creamy white lace leaving very good stick to the walls of this pint glass.
S - citrus and grapefruit up front with orange and a whiff of mellow mango. Grapefruit bite really steps to the side letting the fruitiness take control while the caramel malts blend and balance this aroma to perfection.
T - luscious flavor. Getting the hop notes we love across then balancing them in a magnificent way. Fruity and citrusy up front with mild mango, big orange and grapefruit. Sweet caramel and bread like malts really shift things into that next gear. Hop spice and a peppery note only add character to the flavor. Candied citrus and fruit pop back up just before the quick but sharp grapefruit bitter finish. This has everything anyone could ever want from a big Amber ale. Fresh hop tasting and packed full of flavor.
M - medium bodied with excellent texture. Smooth and drinkable. Texture isn't overly thick, but somehow finds its way into 'the way its supposed to be' category. Coats the mouth with its luscious flavor, gushing hop notes, and sweet malt balance.
O - Nugget Nectar is one of those very few won't absolutely fall in love with. It's the best thing going in the Amber/Red world these days and few could argue its greatness. It's easily one of the most enjoyable and overall best ales I've ever had. I look forward to having more Nugget Nectar experiences in the future and also seek out some of this fine brewery's other offerings. Troegs have a winner here. It's that great

Bought this one in Baltimore on advice of my son. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose, moderate to heavily bitter. The caramel sweetness and biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. A solid effort for a hoppy IPA.
