Tröges Independent Brewery Nugget Nectar

Tröges Independent Brewery Nugget Nectar, 7.5% ABV with 93ish IBUs is a quite popular beer produced in Hershey Pennsylvania once a year by dry-hopping with Nugget, Warrior, Tomahawk, Simcoe, and Palisade hops. Tröges classifies this as a Imperial Amber Ale but I have heard some call it a double IPA. Nugget Nectar pours a clean straw orange color with a one and a half finger white head with aromas of hoppy caramel piney resin with a little bit of orange that then give a taste of slight caramel orange with dank resin bitterness with some earthy pine notes onion the middle and back of the tongue with a bitter faint mango orange finish and a big resin bitter aftertaste with a medium mouthfeel. This is a big bitter beer that is a bit in your face towards the end and for me that hurts this beer a bit. IU give it a B-. Everything about this beer up until the finish is pretty good then hits a little snag. I can see why this is popular, it’s not so west coast IPA which helps it to stand out and it’s not around all year which help make it cool. I wouldn’t recommend have several Nugget Nectars the flavor would be too much after two or three. But I would recommend trying Tröges Independent Brewery Nugget Nectar. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
