Wow probably one of the fruitiest smelling hop forward beers I've ever smelled. It smells like a collection of juicy fruits most that stand out are grapefruit mango and citrus overtones with some slight resin in the back. The taste is that same really smooth and almost syrupy grapefruit, mango citrus taste with the vienna and wheat malt in the middle and ending with that dry hop sort of resin like finish. Not as bitter as most IPA's but maybe that's why they dont call it one? This is all about the hop flavor. As you drink more the bitterness builds with the citrus and resin like dryness but that's only after you get the strong pungent hop flavor that you notice right from the first sip.
This is the perfect beer for people who want IPA flavor without being too turned off with the bitterness not to say it doesn't have bitterness but it's definitely not like the "hop bombs" of the West Coast but damn this stands up when it comes to hop taste pungency. That aroma though is so appealing and what really draws you into the beer. The taste just follows it up and lets you know that this isn't just a smelling type of beer.
The only other beer I've had from them is their HopBack which I wasn't too impressed with but it was so long ago and it was probably a way older bottle than this fresh Nugget Nectar. Now that I've had this beer though I see them as a top notch brewery just like the best of them. A plus to the Nugget Nectar.

4.23/5 rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: light pale/orange. Not quite an amber at all. Very nice white head that leaves decent lacing.
Smell: sweet caramel malt, some raisins, nice light piney/earthy hoppiness
Taste: caramel malt with light pine/earthiness/spice. Taste so far is the best part of the beer (as it should be?). I expect a boring light amber ale and I get a unique flavor that is different from other "hoppy ambers" or IPAs. I like it. With each sip I like it more. The resiny/oily character and herbal quality come out with each sip
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Slightly sticky/oily.
