4.8/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pour..is Red Orange,good clarity,not much head,some viscosity and film. If they can put a head on this they would get big prettiness points.. Oddly, I seem to be running into a lot of beers lately with this strong orange-red and virtually no head. Hopslam, Northern Liberties,and an ESB have nearly the same look except this has more clarity.

Aroma....QUITE aromatic. The only beer recently to out aroma this was a fresh Yakima Glory a few days ago...yes...Nugg even out-smelled Hopslam. Like Hopslam, big Pineapple,the ripe and fresh kind a trace of the caramel lurks behind the acres of fresh pineapples. Aloha.

Flavor. The Pineapple does not act alone. Grapefruit is an accomplice and the Malts watch the door ...Dank ganja like whole hop resins drive the getaway car. Real dramatic. This gang is well armed and will blow away some taste buds just for fun.

The malt role here is to mute the bitterness some and let them big hop cones dance about. Seems to work. An Imperial Amber? Okay, Hopslam, Nugget Nectar and Yakima Glory get 3 different style tags and each has a similar mission,to bring a ton of hop flavor and use the malts to mostly buffer off the excess bitterness. All 3 beers succeed.

Mouthfeel/ Quite fine. Here's some substance with sparkle,with aftertaste you'll think about an hour later...the whole deal.

Drinkability Not a big ABV..or a lightweight,flavorful yet not overbearing. NN brings much of what Hopslam has but at about $1 less a bottle...and ya gotta love that. One could drink theseas easily as anything that's worth drinking. My niece was in town,and loved NN and she's not used to big time hops.
