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.

Bottle date was smudged, but I believe it was 3/24, which would make this bottle a week old. Very excited upon seeing this. Poured into my Duvel tulip on a grey Sunday afternoon.

A: Solid amber hue with a small white head. Very clear.

S: Pine all over the place. Good amount of caramel and butterscotch as well. Needed to be reminded that this isn't an IPA, but an Imperial Amber instead.

T: Pine, resin, some malt. Some more of that caramel sweetness coming into the taste as well.

M: Very smooth and drinkable. Have a six pack in the fridge that I feel like I could finish one after the other. At 7.5%, probably wouldn't be a good idea.

O: Maybe not worth the hype in my perspective, but still a very good beer overall. I will have no qualms finishing my 6er.

A- perfect bronze amber color, crystal clear, big white head that fades to leave nice lacing.

S- pine, citrus, slight malt, not quite as strong as I expected.

T- bitter, slick on the tongue. Citrus, pine, it lingers for a while in your mouth. Malt on the back end helps balance it out nicely.

M- medium body with nice carbonation level.

O- this is a good beer. I wish I was able to get a hold of it more often.

A: Beautiful Amber color with extreme clarity. Poured in a snifter with a pinky size amount of off-white head.

S: Smells of caramel maltiness intially and then hits you with some citrus hops of grapefruit and bananas.

T: Very good hoppy bitter taste that lingers in your mouth for quite awhile. I taste more of an orange peel type citrus hop more than grapefruit or banana.

M: Crisp, clean, light mouthfeel.

O: Overall, this is a very good beer. I enjoyed it very much!
