Very hazy orange pour. Lots of sediment. Haven’t seen sediment like that since our trip to Montreal. Foamy white head. Very strong Pale Ale hops grapefruit scent. Yep it’s a pale ale alright. I’m very surprised as I haven’t haven’t had much Nickelbrook that I’ve actually found to be any good. This must be the exception that proves the rule. Now anyone who has been following my rates knows, I am not a pale ale fan. I don’t like that tart hoppy grapefruit like bite. This is no exception but it fades very quick with pretty much no aftertaste. So yeah Nickelbrook makes a rather good beer. Who knew.

Can, Embrun LCBO. Had this on tap many many times before but will rate from the can. Clear with some hazy medium to dark yellow, nice small foamy head. What a lovely aroma, straight from the crack of the can and then from the glass - fresh grapefruit hops, orange citrus as well. I love this aroma - like rubbing hops in your hand. Mouthfeel is foamy and vibrant. Taste - some light malt sweetness up front, herbal, fruity, citrusy hops in middle, and then aggressive hop bitterness in fish. All remaining well balanced with light malt body. Clean. What a very drinkable hoppy beer. Kicks the ass of just about any other "Session IPA" style beers that I have had. Seriously well done Nickel Brook - so glad to be able to get this out here in cans.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 Pours a nice clean pale amber, frothy white head and perfect carbonation. Mild citrus and pine flavours on the palate, and just enough bitterness from the hops to make it interesting. 4.9% makes it a reasonable brew for a work night. So far the closest thing to my "perfect" beer that I?ve found yet. Well done!

Reimer96 (1414) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Pours a clear medium orangish amber with a nice frothy white head. Aroma of pale malts, caramel, citrus and piney hops. Taste is sweet malts balanced well with citrus, pine and light resin with a medium bitterness. Excellent balance of hops and malts.

This is a nice sessionable IPA. It lacks a little bit of character in the middle section, but it’s got a nice nose and a nice dry finish. The usual APA fare: orange, grapefruit, a bit of pine. A bit of caramel from a decent, but slightly flimsy malt. As a tasting beer, this is good, and worth a try. As a sesh beer it’s extremely drinkable. Similar to, but not quite as good as, Rhyme and Reason by Collective Arts.

Blonde mi-mince qui se trouble à mesure que son important dépôt de levure vient la brouiller ; nez en houblons floraux et fruités. Petite couronne de mousse. La bouche est savoureuse, fruitée elle aussi, avec une finale tout juste herbacée qui donne une signature épicée, plutôt qu’amère. Douce mais savoureuse, désaltérante tout en étant assez dense, elle est un excellent exemple de ce genre, bien qu’elle ne soit pas exactement originale.

Bottle from lcbo. Pours a hazy orange/yellow with a white head. Aroma is fruity with pineapple, light caramel and orange. Light to medium body, light carbonation. Orange, white bread, light caramel, grass, pine, lemon... Lovely balanced light quaffable beer. Nice bitter finish too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
