12 oz bottle into a tulip.
Bottled on 1/27/11
A: It pours a gorgeous amber that reveals some orange hues when held up to the light. There is a generous two finger white head that stands on its' own for quite some time. Plenty of great sticky lacing to go around as well, it is caked massively onto the glass.
S: Tons of sticky hops in this one; pine cone, citrus, herbal, spicy, and a distinctly dank resinous aroma. As I keep stuffing my face in the glass I am starting to pick up a respectable malt back bone, caramel and toasty bread.
T: There is a blast of hops on the first sip that just goes on, and on. It finishes moderately bitter and quite dry. As the sips continue the hops develop into more specific flavors, fir tree, grapefruit, spicy herbal tea, to name a few. The flavors of the hops in this beer are much more piney and earthy than some, but the Nectar holds up really solid in comparison for me.
M: Smooth and luscious, they kept the carbonation in check which really allows the hop profile to shine.
D: I could put this one away all winter. My favorite offering from Troegs and an all around excellent hoppy red ale. Get some!

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.
