4.45/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
ST - poured from 12 oz brown bottle into hollow 1970's era hollow stem Gunther Brewery goblet.
A - rusty amber color with a slight haze. Not much head. Avg lacing.
S - tangy citrus and pine. Not overpowering. Well balanced.
T - hops predominate as you would expect from a beer named nugget nectar! Hard core hop heads may be left wanting more, but I think the Troeg brothers have done a remarkable job keeping this brew very well balanced and approachable.
M - not overly carbonated but still feels crisp and refreshing. Slick.
O - a very good brew. Drank a few down before I noticed that the ABV was a nice 7.5%...well balanced and simple pine and citrus favors do an excellent job of masking the alcohol content with little to no warming effect. I found these really easy to drink even though I'm just starting to warm up to hop heavy brews. I'm more of a porter / stout fan, but even a hop noob like me can see why they call this "nugget nectar"! Awesome label too!!

4.23/5 rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: light pale/orange. Not quite an amber at all. Very nice white head that leaves decent lacing.
Smell: sweet caramel malt, some raisins, nice light piney/earthy hoppiness
Taste: caramel malt with light pine/earthiness/spice. Taste so far is the best part of the beer (as it should be?). I expect a boring light amber ale and I get a unique flavor that is different from other "hoppy ambers" or IPAs. I like it. With each sip I like it more. The resiny/oily character and herbal quality come out with each sip
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Slightly sticky/oily.
