2/18/10

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a large snifter. Color is coppery-orange with a head that distinctly reminds me of snow when first mixed with dirt. Thin lacing loosely clings to the edges of the glass, cascading down. The nose is primarily of hops with a malty, bready backbone. A large pineyness drowns out any citrus notes. The taste is very similar to the smell. Nice hoppy forefront with a malty backbone to even it out. Pine flavors dominate and I personally like more citrus notes in my ipa's. But sorry, this is not an ipa. Still would like to pick up on a more citrusy sweetness. Some people have said this beer was thin, but I couldn't disagree more. Wonderful medium creamy body that clings to your tongue with a great hoppiness. Nice level of carbonation. Very drinkable. Alcohol is becoming noticeable after 22 oz of the stuff...go figure. If only this stuff was readily available to me.

12oz bottle - bottled on 2/15/11. Only ten days old!

Poured into Sam Adams perfect pint. This beer pours blood orange/amber and copper. A large, two finger head rises, eggshell white in color. The head is thick and presumptuous, staying about for mere minutes before wilting away. In its path is left quite a bit of sticky lacing.

The nose on this thing it super hoppy, with little malt backbone to be found. A plethora of hops gives me a profile consisting of citrus, a bouquet of fresh flowers, spice and a distinct earthiness.

The taste has a distinct grapefruit character that is really quite pleasant; especially in the aftertaste. It is very floral and has more of a malt backbone than the nose lets on to, which helps keep the hops at bay. It reminds me of eating a spoonful of grapefruit followed by chewing on freshly picked daisies.

Nugget Nectar has a medium body and is quite creamy. Impeccably smooth and well rounded, the alcohol slips by unnoticed.

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.
