I've drank this beer several times now (fresh), and I don't think I've ever had such a fantastically drinkable hop fix of a beer.
Pours an attractive, clear copper. Modest head laces well from the start. Huge, glorious hop aroma. Dank and spicy.
Flavor is subtle compared to the aroma, but still fantastic. Well-balanced between the malt and juicy hops. Biscuity malts and woody, citrusy hops. I actually noticed the smooth, creamy mouthfeel first. It's pretty carbonated, and usually, I don't like that, but here it is a plus, somehow contributing to the creaminess. The malt base seems almost lager-like: very smooth and oh, so drinkable. Aftertaste is just bitter and hoppy enough to keep you wanting more.
Almost like a Maibock meets a double IPA. This is a great beer that is exceptional when fresh. Just about my ideal drinking beer. Oh how I love thee, Nugget Nectar.
2013 Update: Mercaptan bomb, oxidation. Man this is bad. What happened to my Nugget Nectar? Lowering numbers as a result. Womp, womp.
