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.

Thanks to stimulus for yet another awesome extra...been waiting a long time to try this. Pours a clear amber color with a small-medium white head that disappears quickly. Scent is quite hoppy with some lovely citrus aroma...a bit of pineapple as well. The aroma somewhat remind me of Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale. A slight malt profile...but not much...possibly caramel. Love the mixture of tropical and citrus hops in this one. Taste is outstanding! Such a complex "hoppy amber ale"...just call it an IPA for crying out loud. Very clean and well balanced. Some nice caramel and bread-like malt flavors with intense hoppiness that has everything you would love in a hoppy IPA, but without the lingering bitterness. Not one flavor dominates, as they all pull their own weight nicely. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with a refreshing finish. Drinkability is very high. Overall, I absolutely love this beer. So tasty and well-balanced!

A - Head is a straw yellow (very light) color and about a finger tall. Body is a perfect amber in color.

S - This is where it's at. Could smell this all day long. Just that sweet hops scent that is so simple. Maybe grapefruit, wheat, caramel, and malts.

T - A little harsh on the hops. Still nice sweetness in the form of honey. Slight malt flavor. Hops are bitter.

M - Strong carbonation and medium body.

O - It is very good beer. Not sure why they don't call it an IPA, but amber works too.
