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.

My brother gave a bottle from his six pack, thanks. Poured into a standard pint glass. Dark orange red color. Thin white head. Not a lot of carbonation or lacing noted. Smell is up front with pine and citrus. The flavor is certain hop forward. The trio of hops used certainly is potent. But it's not overwhelming, which I enjoyed. There was a sweetness from the malt that gave a nice counterbalance to the tartness of the hops. Pretty smooth on the palate for such a hoppy beer, over 7% no less. You could tell that this beer was brewed with a degree of finesse to be able to achieve this level of retrained assertiveness.

Poured into a snifter after a long crappy day.

A: Clear amber with a creamy, half finger head that leaves a few bubbles in its wake. Minimal lacing.

S: Floral, piney hops, bananas.

T: Follows nose. Smooth, not overly bitter. Grapefruit. Malts. A slightly bitter finish, but I didn't mind.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Really nice. Would drink again. I see why this one's such a hit.

Reviewed from notes. Drank 4/13.
12 oz bottle poured into a tumbler.

Pours a clear amber color. A decent head with little lacing.

Maybe this wasn't the freshest bottle, but this beer had a low hop flavor with a Carmal sweetness and a minor grapefruit hoppy aftertaste. I was expecting more hop flavor and aroma on this one, but it fit the bill as a red to a T, but it had a lot of hop hype, which is what I was looking for. A solid Beer, which if I lived in the Distro area I would pick up for sure again.
