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.

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.

Was very excited to pick this up and try. Initially tried two bottles, just finished the second one. Pours amber with a hint of red. Smells very nice when you really get a good whiff, but that's about it. Can't say how disappointed I was with this one. The first few sips left a sort of... gas-like, almost sulfur like after taste. Had to really force it down. I've had water problems before at my house, and our water tank had to be cleaned with chlorine to get the gasious sulfur like smell out of our water. The after taste of this beer reminded me of that smell. Terrible. I'm sure it is possible I simply got a bad batch but it really wasn't very good. Now I'm not sure what I'll do with the other four bottles.

After reading the reviews I was psyched to try this. The initial impression was good but not great...but that was just my mind wanting to believe it was a great beer. After that wears off, you're left just an OK avg. amber beer.

Very ipa esque with wonderful citrusy hops thought and a slight malt finish. Smooth. Red Amber ale/IPA...what ever the f. *^ it is it's delicious ....oh only downer was the 16$ sixer price here in NY..enjoy gentlemen!
