I have a bit of a cold so perhaps not fair to rate now. Overall good. Never a huge nectar guy but this was better than last year imo. Malty for sure but a little complex under the surface. Good stuff.

Bottled 1/8/15 and poured into a Troegs Teku on the 12th.

Appearance is copper/amber and crystal clear with nice white head.

Smell is dank nugget hops. I had it on draft at Troegs earlier and this bottle seems to smell much danker. Smells delicious!

The first taste from this bottle is very nugget hop forward. Caramel malts kick in to balance things out and it finished clean and balanced with hops lingering. Every sip demands another sip. Much like the smell I think this bottle is a little danker than the draft that I had earlier. It is 4 days old after all.

Overall this years Nugget Nectar seems to be tasting awesome. I can't get enough of it at the moment and just cracked another bottle. The 16oz cans are going to be a force to be reckoned with next week!

Edit: Tasting some of the 1/15/14 cans on 1/19 and they have some wild grapefruit aroma and flavor that I haven't gotten out of this years draft, bottles, firkin. Very delicious!

I love nugget hops, and Troegs nails it with this awesome brew. If you like a darker IPA with a nice malt undertone, lingering amidst those wonderful hops, this is a must try.
