Deep and rich resinous hop smells of mango grapefruit and citrus all combining for an overall sweet smell. Very nice and crisp like a Stone IPA would be and rather refreshing because of the crisp hop bite and perfect amount of carbonation. I get the tastes of full on citrus orange juice qualities with the bitter grapefruit lasting on the back of the tongue.

As for malts I get a bready molasses thick sweetness although the body tends to stay towards the lighter side as the appearance indicates. The malt and hop sweetness work great in unison in this beer.

This and Nugget Nectar are obviously IPA nectars. They are juicy and crisp and exactly how an IPA should be. Very fruity although in a different way. This beer is fantastic.

Poured from a 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. (Bottled 6/20)

A: Pours a crisp clear blonde with a 1finger white head. Plenty of lacing and decent retention.

S: Pine/Resin, citrus (tropical), spices and a tiny bit of malts.

T: Pretty much on the nose. Some malt sweetness on the tongue followed by citrus/pine/resin and finishing with a lingering bitterness from the hops.

M: Medium body, low carbonation.

O: Excellent year round AIPA. Rivals many of the other staples in the year round AIPA category. Seek it out and as always, drink fresh.

Gorgeous looking beer. Bright gold crystal clear color with a fluffy two.finger head. From what I was told by my brew rep, this beer has a lot.of similarities to nuggets nectar but with the difference in color there's gotta be a different malt bill. Smells slightly nugget nectarish. Super resinous piney hops grapefruit and citric fruits. Taste is very similar as well. Most noticeably though is that body is a little thinner and less slick feeling. Also less alcohol.detection. really really awesome beer. Smoother than nuggets nectar even.

In comparison to nugget nectar, theres a bit more sweetness, a bit more balance, and a bit more carbonation. Incredibly smooth.

Poured into a pint glass. The color is clear and golden. There is a small quarter inch white head. The lacing is decent.

There is a great melony hop aroma. This one smells a bit sweet too.

The taste highlights some piney hop flavor. This one definitely falls under the category of sticky with it's nice malt bite. There is good zesty hoppy bitter finish.

This is medium bodied. There is a nice full mouthfeel.

This is pretty tasty. I bought it because it was fresh and bottle dated. I would get this one again when fresh.

Thanks to tone77 for this very good beer!

The beer pours an orange tinted dark golden in color. There is a short head of white foam that leaves thick and sticky lacing down the glass.

The aroma is very hoppy, pine, melons, lots of cantaloupe, light overripe tropical fruit.

The taste follows the aromas, although the taste is lighter than the aroma.

This drinks light for its relatively high alcohol and flavor. The finish is quite bitter, almost stinging. This is a nice strong American pale ale.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Picked this up at Jungle Jims in Cincinatti, Oh. $10.99 a sixer.

It pours a cloudy bright yellow with a white head. Very tight bubbles. Looks lighter than I thought.

The nose is very flagrant. Really big tropical fruits. Grapefruit and orange dominate. Very hoppy and spicy smelling.

BOOM!!! Mad flavors right away on the first sip. Lot's of acidic fruits with a slight malt backbone. Grapefruit is huge. The citra hops are kicking ass on this one. Really good with no hint of alcohol. Pretty bitter.

Mouthfeel is solid. Perfect carbs and drinks lighter than a 7.5% abv IPA. I could drink this all the time.

Great beer by Troegs! This is only the second beer I have had by them(Nugget Nectar). Solid IPA!
