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.

16 oz can. Nice and fresh with a Feb. 2015 canning date on the bottom.

Very hoppy aroma. I could smell hops right after popping the top on the can even at a good two feet from my nose. The hoppy aroma strengthened when decanted into my nonic glass. The appearance is just as impressive, with a deep, clear amber body topped by an especially creamy tan head, The head had excellent retention and coated the glass with nice lacing patterns. The flavor is less bitter and less hoppy than the aroma suggests. This drinks like a highly aromatic, relatively malty APA, although the bitterness and hoppiness build a bit in the aftertaste to suggest an IPA. The three(?) hop varieties play well together.

Feel: excellent, with medium+ soft carbonation in a medium body. Dry finish.

O: exceptional

Thanks to Bill for sending this as an extra. Pours a crystal clear amber with a three finger head. Aroma has caramel malts and some vanilla, burnt sugar, pine, and pineapple. The caramel is the strongest part of the smell and reminds me a little of a barley wine. Taste is a nice balance of sweet malts and bitter hops with a slight alcohol kick which is nice. I was expecting more of a pale ale, but this is a nice change of pace.
