TASTING NOTES

Squeeze those hops for all they’re worth! Nugget Nectar Ale 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.

    Pint can into a Sam Smith’s nonic This beer was canned 10 days ago.
    A: Bright clear amber orange with 3 fingers of beige foam. Great retention. Active carbonation.
    S: Citrus, tangerine, grapefruit.
    T: Immediate hit of pine. Citrus from the nose is mostly absent. Some toast in the middle sits on the tongue. Mild bitterness lingers at the finish.
    M: Tingly but not too much so. Slightly oily/soapy feel. A little chewiness.
    O: Had big hopes for this but well... Tastes more like an IPA. Like a watered down Sculpin or something. Pretty good and all but... Whelmed, but not overly.
