Finally able to try the Nectar!

A: Clear, light copper-amber with a fluffy, pillowy, off-white head that leaves great lacing but just a bit of retention.

S: Incredible nose. Absolutely incredible! From even a foot away the hops overwhelm your nose with fruity, piney, cedary aromas. So fresh. So potent. The hop oils are strong.

T: This is what I've desired in every Amber/Red I drink. I've only found it in a few and this is one of those beers. Amazing balance of sweet, toasty malt and fresh, oily hops that explode with flavor. Bitter, piney, fruity, dry Nugget hops, as the name suggests.

M: Perfectly bitter and dry. Smooth and clean. Properly carbonated.

O: World-class stuff. Hop presence is absurd. The beer defines the style and sets the benchmark.

Update 3/21/13: on-tap...phenomenal as expected. Huge hop flavor balanced by delicious malt. Incredible beer.
