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.

On tap at one of the finer beer bars in the district. Color was an amber to rust red. Head was moderate and left good lacing.
Aroma is slightly sweet yet funky as well. Some hop stink with maybe a little citrus fruit.
Taste is sweet up front and flowing to more complex notes of grapefruit and pine. Blend of sweet and bitter is excellent. Finishes with some green hop notes and leaves a fresh hop after taste. Mouth feel is pretty smooth with moderate carbonation and pleasing.
Overall, and excellent beer in my opinion. Balanced with both sweet and bitter. Good flow while tasting and nice ending.

Picked up a sixer after getting recommendation from beer guru. Great looking beer that is clear Amber, normally I like thinking looking beer but have to admit it is pretty. And then there is the awesome smell, classic IPA. Incredible flavor, nearly perfect with only a mild bitter. Wonderful beer that will be a regular in my beer fridge.

Update, 2014: Did not feel like this years was as good as last year. Did not pop on the nose as much and the flavor was similar, did not jump at me like before and there even seemed to be much more bitter finish. Still great but not as great as last year.
