its like the hopback on steroids. the pour is almost ruby red, super radiant amber color with a few inches of fading white fluff. it looks pretty dense. the nose is real hoppy, more like an imperial ipa than the red its listed as here, piney and resinous, like strong ganja, with a nice dusty caramel red malt underpinning. i like the hop flavor of this beer, its complex and tricky, some citrus in there amongst the trees, pleasantly refreshing for its gravity, and really well balanced by the malts. troegs has gotten the big beers down pat, with the mad elf and the troegenator, in your face beers that still retain some degree of drinkability. id happily attempt a sixer of this! nice carbonation and a lot of body, long sticky hop finish. the label is just right for this beer, it tastes like what comes to mind when looking at the bottle, its perfect really. i like the red malt bill for this, it makes the standard big ipa a whole lot more interesting. very well done.

Troegs Brewing Company - Nugget Nectar - 12fl oz bottle

Another brew picked up by Hendry and generously shared.

Look - Pours deep amber with an orange hue around the outside. Full, soapy head that dissipates at a medium pace. Good lacing. Moderate carbonation.

Smell - Malty, sweet and tangy with tropical citrus hops on top. Mouth watering and quite unique.

Taste - Snappy dry malt with a bitter hop kick right after, tropical fruits creep in after.

Mouthfeel - Wow! Very nice dry mouthfeel that makes you crave another sip. Taste, refreshing, and not boozy at all!

Overall - This is a must try brew for sure. It is unique, flavorful, thirst quenching, sweet, tangy, and very enjoyable. Cheers!
