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.

Stumbled upon this beer at my local store. Grabbed the last two four packs they had in stock. Poured from a 16oz can, crystal clear Amber body and and a tightly frothed bone colored head about one inch thick. Lacing is reasonable, leaving surface lines with each sip. Smell is awesome citrus and evergreen goodness. Taste is a 50/50 balance of bitter hops and malty backbone. Feel is smooth and resiny. Overall just an awesome beer. You could easily session or pound this ale, whichever method suits your fancy.

Another over hyped beer. Tastes extremely bitter. Not much else

The hop character of an IPA and the sweetness of an amber in perfect balance. It is the best of both worlds.

Delicious... for my $ perfectly balanced. Think of a Smithwick's meeting an American IPA - definite hop presence but with little bite and the mouth feel, finish of classic amber.

So much bubblegum. Hoppy amber beers really don't get much better than this.
