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.

Way over hyped! It's a decent beer, but nothing amazing.

Very tasty but a little over hyped for what it is. Great everyday drinker but its not near as hoppy as the hype suggests.

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.
