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.

12 oz bottle poured into nonic. Perfectly clear, bright copper-orange liquid with a finger of orange tinged white head that settles to a thin layer of foam that stays around but doesn’t lay down any lacing. The aroma consists of orange juice, citrus peel, melon, strawberry, pine, caramel, and herbal hops. The taste is initially sweet with strong caramel, toasted grain, and tropical fruit flavors. The bitterness grows with each sip and features citrus, herbal, and pine hops. Medium body, resinous, sticky texture, soft carbonation, and a dry finish from hops and alcohol.

Tried this along with a Hopslam. The Hopslam was delicious where as the Nugget Nectar just didn't do it for me.

Excellent representation of the category. Lighter drinking with a pleasing refreshing that keeps you coming back for more. Not the hoppiest of brews, and the malt is well balanced with the hops but the malt comes through more.
