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.

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.
