Squeeze those hops for all they're worth! Nugget Nectar will take hopheads to nirvana with a heady collection of American hops. Our Imperial Amber Ale is further intensified with whole flower Nugget hops added to our hopback vessel, resulting in an explosion of citrus, resin and pine.

93 IBU

Had this at a local restaurant as a free bottle from the manager who just got it in. Had to look at BA to get an idea as I never heard of this from Troegs. I must say I was impressed. It said 93 IBU but you sure couldn't tell. It had a nice pleasant hop taste and went down smooth. Head faded but left lacing
I would get another for sure

One of the best, most firmly delivering a hoppy complex brew that transcends the piney, fruit, descriptions...a whole other level....this should be sought out and murdered for...JK...great though...

Can poured to glass. Drank Feb '15 1 mo. after canned date. Really good just not a huge fan of the drier red ale finish and after taste

Good not great. Prefer Gknight or Blazing World by far. Only first of four cans, ill drink another to see if it changes my perspective.

A unique hoppy imperial red ale. Every year this is a must buy, and the new pint size can's are a great idea. Hoppy and well balanced.

A seasonal classic that does not disappoint .

Thick hoppiness with a solid malty backbone. Not a bitter one dimensional IPA.
Depth, warmth, citrus, pine, balance.

An East Coast answer to the dry West Coast IPA ( ala Torpedo). Both great, but different. Fresh hop brews are close to this in palate perfection. I keep mine cold for up to 6 months with stability, freshness. Easy to get in Upstate NY, and Troegs seems to be losing some interest according to my local good beer shop. They are very quality brewers,

Bring back Flying Mouflan to wider distribution!!!!

Very much recommended
