The gang at Once Upon a Vine come through for me again. Having read the message board and finding out that there was some Nugget Nectar to possibly be had in Virginia, I called OUAV and was pleased to find out that a case could be reserved. Got the call and made haste to obtain.
A: Fiery copper in color. Clear. Sticky-slathery white head leaves globs of lace on the glass. Wonderful.
S: "Imperial Amber Ale", eh? If by "Imperial" they mean "a shitload of hops" then I can see it. Egads! There's a threesome of sweaty hop action here: Pine cones drizzled with grapefruit juice dusted with freshly-cut grass. Surprisingly, there's a stong backbone of caramel sweetness as well. Given the vast quantities of hops this must have, that's sayin' something.
T: The first thing I thought when I tried this was that it tasted like a beefier version of DFH 60 minute IPA. This is good. Up-front sweetness quickly falls victim to the hop onslaught. Noticeable citrusy flavors last throughout the profile. Not too overwhelming. Nicely balanced. ABV cloaked almost completely. Wonderful finish. Hoppy and dry. Not very long-lasting.
M/D: Exceptional. Pefectly balanced. Creamy and slick on the palate at the same time. Spot-on carbonation. Perhaps a case is not enough?
Serving type: bottle
