Troegs Nugget Nectar Clone

Does anyone have a decent extract clone recipe for this beer? it is one of the best beers I've ever tasted and I have no access to it. If anyone has a recipe, please post it. I crave this beer like crazy.

I don't have a clone recipe, but I'm with you on this beer. It's excellent. When you first open the bottle, the aroma hits you just right! A little information that might help in coming up with a clone:

Nugget Nectar Ale ™ (Feb. 1st 2006)

Alcohol by Volume: 7.5%
Hop Bitterness (IBU's) : 93ish
Color (SRM) : Straw-Orange
Availability: 1/2, 1/6 and Cask Conditioned kegs, 12 oz. bottles
Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, Munich
Hops: Nugget, Warrior, Tomahawk, Simcoe, Palisade
Yeast: Ale

Squeeze those hops for all they’re worth and prepare to pucker up: Nugget Nectar Ale, will take hopheads to nirvana with a heady collection of Nugget, Warrior and Tomahawk hops. Starting with the same base ingredients of our flagship HopBack Amber Ale, Nugget Nectar intensifies the malt and hop flavors to create an explosive hop experience.

Ok, how about this as a clone recipe. Fair warning, I just took a quick stab at coming up with this, so I'm sure it could be improved.

Beer: Nugget Nectar Clone
Style: American Amber Ale
Type: Extract w/grain
Size: 5 gallons, Boil: 6 gallons
Color: 14 HCU (~9 SRM)
Bitterness: 93 IBU
OG: 1.072
FG: 1.016
Alcohol: 7.3% v/v (5.7% w/w)

1 lb. American Vienna
1 lb. American Munich
6.6 lb. Light malt extract
2 lb. Light dry malt extract

0.5 oz. Nugget (12% AA, 60 min.)
0.75 oz. Warrior (16% AA, 15 min.)
0.5 oz. Tomahawk (16% AA, 15 min.)
1 oz. Simcoe (12% AA, 15 min.)
1 oz. Palisade (9.8% AA, 15 min.)
0.25 oz. Warrior (0 min.)
0.5 oz. Nugget (dryhop)
0.5 oz. Tomahawk (dryhop)

Who knows what that will give you, but it could be a good starting point for tweaking. It's kind of hard to do the hop schedule with 5 different hops and of those listed I've only used Tomahawk (Columbus). So good luck and let us know what recipe you end up with and how it comes out.
