From my experiences, Troeg's doesn't make bad beer. Nugget Nectar, however, is possibly their star brew.
Pours a golden color with dark undertones.
Smell is rich and bountiful. Citrusy and a decent amount of hops.
Perfectly balanced which gives it a wonderful taste. Hops mixed with orange and maly. Wonderful.
It's balance allows for easy drinking. It is a fairly high ABV beer, so limit to a few.
Serving type: on-tap

3.89/5 rDev -11%

A - Pours a crystal clear amber color with 2-3 fingers of creamy head. Nice little bit of visible carbonation streams upwards. The head retains for a good amount of time and leaves this lacing on the side of the glass.
S - A deep earthiness emanates from this beer. It's not an aroma that I am particularly fond of.
T - Dank, earth hops. The flavor is fairly consistent throughout. I feel a strong bitterness that creeps in at mid-palate and persists through the finish. Nothing much in the way of sweetness, although I seem to remember a bit more sweetness in previous bottles.
M - Medium-bodied. A bit of softness/squishiness. Strong residual clinginess from the hops. Long, lingering aftertaste.
O - Not my favorite hop profile. Seems somewhat comparable to Smuttynose Finestkind. Glad I tried it, enjoyable beer, but I can find better beer at a better price point.

4.08/5 rDev -6.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
A: Clear amber/ Red with a 2 finger head and sticky lacing with lively carbonation. Can't dream of a prettier beer.
S: Citrus, pine
T:the citrus and pine dominate but there is a caramel type sweetness and a slight bready quality. Finish has the essence of peaches.
M: Starts sweet, finishes dry. Medium bodied - goes down smooth.
O: This is labeled an imperial amber ale, but what it is is an IPA. Hoppy for sure and hides the ABV very well - almost too drinkable. The appearance is the highlight in this one. Great beer but sligtlty overrated.
