12oz bottle poured into dfh signature glass
Pours a crystal clear burnt auburn color with some darker hues around the glass. A well toned head retains with some bubbly film and plenty of patchy lacing on the glass.
A lovely burst of grapefruit hops in the nose swirled with some slightly sweeter fruits and just enough bready malt base.
Waves of juicy hops kick off the profile with an explosion of fruit flavor and pleasant bitterness. Grapefruit intensifies the hop attack, which wraps itself around the palate. A doughy, bready malt base adds in some light sweetness with hints of caramel. Finishes with another punch of stark hop bitterness and some lingering dryness.
Medium bodied, milder carbonation, way smoother on the palate than you might think, and goes down incredibly easy. The alcohol is masked just enough, and seems to sit just right at 7.5%.
There's very few beers at this point that I can see myself drinking more than one or two of in a sitting, and Nugget Nectar is one of them. One of my favorites each year.
