Description 

Before you slip into the night, you'll want something to drink. Picture of Nectar is the perfect complex beer with a huge pine and citrus hop profile sure to satisfy your craving. Our Double IPA brewed with elderfower and nectarines has notes of stone fruit and a distinct verdant bitterness. It has an underlying herbal fragrance and a flavor that is reminiscent of honey and flowers. This unapologetically assertive brew is bursting with flavor and is perfectly pleasing to the palate.

Southbound Brewing Co’s. Picture of Nectar could either be considered a big Fruit Beer with very assertive, dank hopping, or as a Double IPA with fruit. Either way, it's a Specialty beer, and it is also quite special. This golden-colored, slightly hazy ale with an assertive stand of head exhibits an assertive dank hop aroma with citrus and light floral notes in the background. The flavor has quite an interesting balance of moderate hop bitterness and dank hop flavor from start to finish along with an evident, fresh tangerine character that begins to come through in the middle over the base malt backbone. The finish retains the flavor balance, with the tangerine notes slightly overcoming the hop character, as well as some warming at the swallow as expected from a 9.4% ABV brew. This is an interesting and delightful brew – in the beginning the DIPA is the hero, but in the finish the fruit character makes this delicious beverage quite memorable. Definitely recommended.
