Received in a trade with WkndatBernardus. Great choice. I lived in Philly for 2 years and never tried this beer. Unbelievable.
Nugget Nectar is a bright reddish orange copper color, almost glowing. Nose is very fruit forward and a lot of malt is evident. Definitely some hops there, but smell is more sweet than bitter. Taste is bitter, with the hops becoming more evident. There is a slight English Breakfast tea flavor that I always find in Red Ales. I tend to find it annoying/overpowering, but I liked the subtlety in this beer. Good balance of citrus and hops.
This is good stuff though I (and I reserve the right to try again) am not sure it ranks up there with the elite. I may have done this beer a disservice, drinking it with friends after a couple of DIPAs, so I may be at fault for not absolutely loving this beer. It wouldn't be the first time....
