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.

Look: Deep amber body...imperial amber...burnt orange...Very clingy and pillowy, slightly off-white head.
Smell: Sweet and spicy hop aromas.
Taste: The taste is sweet and smooth throughout. Laid back hops and laid back tropical fruit tones. The taste fades away nicely.
Feel: Medium body. The semi-dense carb comes in at the back end.

Overall: Not bad. Not over-the-top in any category. Balanced and obviously, a go-to type of beer.

Poured from a can into a tulip

A. Pours a mostly transparent amber beer with 2 finger khaki head. Very nice head retention. Cobblestone lacing.

S. Sweet biscuity malts and tropical hops. Some pine, and pineapple.

T. Nice hop flavor. Juicy, grape, pine, pineapple, and sweet malts. Some nice bitterness. Followed by green leafy aftertaste.

M. 5 out of 10 on body thickness. Some pretty good carbonation. Finishes pretty clean.

O. A very nice beer. Drinks more like an APA than an amber to me but it does have a decent amount of malt flavor. Hops are the star though i'd say. Smells like it tastes and that's nice. The mouthfeel is also very nice IMO. Very nice beer.
