Okay, so I am trying to get into hoppy beers and a friend suggested Nugget Nectar as a good kick off beer. He has not let me astray yet, so hopefully this is no different.
The pour yielded just under an inch of creamy, tan head. The beer is a gorgeous red/amber. Just after opening the bottle I can immediately smell the sweetness and hoppiness. The blend is enticing and a balanced aroma. After it is poured I can detect further hints of sweetness like cherries . Additionally, there is a definite earthy pine smell. Great lacing throughout the beer.
The first sip bombards you with a sweet fruity taste with a honey hint that lasts while you hold the beer in your mouth. Upon drinking down the beer a piney, hop tastes subsides the sweetness and leaves your mouth crisp and slightly dry. It's like drinking a two course beer. You can tell a lot of time was put into balancing the tastes. The beer seems thin at first, but a few swishes around it appears to have a medium-light consistency.
Superbly crafted and refreshing. My friend gave me a great jump-off beer for my dive into the hoppy world of beers I have thus avoided in my life. The only problem now, is that it might all be downhill from here.

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.
