4.68/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearence: Pours a clear, light copper with a thin one finger near-white head that dies down to a collar. A little bit of slow moving carbonation is present.

Smell: The smell is a gentle balance of rich, bready malts and strong floral and citrusy hops, with a tiny touch of alcohol, and a hint of oak as well.

Taste and Mouthfeel: Delicious!! Perfect balance between an IPA and a red ale. Mmmm mmm mmm... The hops create a wonderful juiciness in the mouth, and are balanced perfectly by just the right amount of malts. But, obviously, the hops are the focus, and they are truly dazzeling. Floral, citrusy, and full of long lasting bitterness. Hell yeah. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied and smooth.

Drinkability and Overall: Ah, the ever-hyped, ever-elusive Nugget Nectar finally available in bottles. And it was worth the wait, and the hype. This is a truly spectacular beer, and one I can (and probably will) drink all freaking night. Chris & Jon, once again you've created a world class brew. INCREDIBLE!

4/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark amber. Pours a 1 finger, frothy, white head. Persistently lingers, never fully dissipates. Thick beer ring lacing remains.

S: A little roasted pecan, caramel, and floral hops.

T: Roasted malt, with a bit of bitter roasted pecan balanced with a crisp, distinctive hop bite.

M: Malty and earthy, with a bit of a syrupy texture. Malt and hop both linger on the palate.

D: Sip and savor. Worth the ride.

Atmosphere is really nice. Dark hue, persistent frothy head, and plenty of beer ring lacing. Nose is roasty, with sweet and floral components. Malty, a little bitter nutty character, and a crisp hop bite. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
