Had on tap at Mad Med on McKnight Rd. 22 oz. "pint" glass. Yes!
This wonderful, tall glass of Nugget Nectar is deep amber in color with a gorgeous finger of fluffy white head. The lacing was top notch, and when I had finished the glass, I literally saw notches where I had taken each sip. Of course, I had to order up another.
The smell is a bit subdued. Piney, citrus over a base layer of light roasted malt.
Smooth sweetness on the front, with a flavorful, yet under control piney, resiny hop blast. Not a smack in the face, but very enjoyable, and oh so drinkable. Also some citrus, and a hint of honey. The mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy. A moderately dry finish makes the next sip just that much more desirable.
Overall, this was just what the doctor ordered. No, it's not a hop bomb of epic proportions, and I don't think this brew pretends to be one. It's tasty, it's scary drinkable for 7.5%, and I wish I could have more. Darn.

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.
