Papillon (380) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2014
750mL Bottle. Yellow-gold body with a frothy white head settling to a film leaving lots of blotchy lace. Intense resiny hops are the main feature in the aroma; citrus and floral notes. And flavor! Pale sweet malts shine through without imposing in any way lime the bouquet. Herbal hop aftertaste followed by a long smooth linger. Smooth and silky mouth feel.

robinvboyer (3257) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
750mo bottle from the lcbo. Outstanding aroma of limes, citrus, and touches of honey. The flavor is more citrus, sweet, soft mouthfeel, light bitterness. A delicate beer, big aromas and flavors of citrus, some subtle grass, and a little pine. Quite impressive, great stuff!

deepeary (165) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Very intense juicy hop nose, dank pine resin, citrus. Taste follows the nose, but less intense. Really good. I wish it had a longer finish. Well balanced.

Pale golden straw pour with a thin white head. The aroma is great - bright lemon and orange/grapefruit citrus with s bit oflesn psle malt. Very fresh and fruity. No real problems here.Itís just a clean, fresh tasty APA.

Tap at Cíest What. Hazy golden-orange pour. The aroma is odd. A bit of orange and juicy fruit/orange sherbet aroma. Light cat pee and a touch of kiwi. Interesting tropical fruit flavour. Moderate bitterness and a touch of soft lingering fruit flavour. Pretty interesting actually.

cfrancis (2499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
One of the better wet hop beers that Iíve ever had. Pours hazy gold with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is big citrus and grassy malts. Taste is a blessed blend of big citrus hop flavouring and moderate bitterness and grassy malts. Awesome.

kevinsenn (1138) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
750mL bottle from LCBO. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Lovel peach and strawberry aroma. Taste is fairly light and delicate, with refreshing peach, strawberry, and kiwi. Sweet, but not too sweet; pretty well-balanced. A nice beer; these Bertwell hops are pretty nice.

hangunder (271) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Smells delicious and very hoppy. Light malt, tropical fruit and biscuit. Very light, almost like peach juice, with a foamy but somewhat quickly-dissipating head. Spicy hops upfront, with a bit of the tropical fruit flavors, a bit of pine in the middle and a fairly indistinct finish. Somewhat watery. Nice fresh hoppy flavor and super drinkable but the super light body and lack of a finish hold it back a bit in my eyes. Average carbonation.

TheJester (1958) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
750 mL bottle. Hazy orange-gold with a medium, sticky, bright, white head. Aroma of fresh C-hops, with pine resin and a little sweet mandarine. The flavour is good because itís a little different; hard to describe, but there is almost a hint of a Christoffel Nobel or Schneider Hopfen weisse or that sort of thing. Which makes me wonder about the flavour hops in this one. or maybe Iím just imagining things. Nice hop/malt balance. Not a lot of bitterness. Very drinkable.

Gorbalev (2950) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle, Embrun LCBO. Hazy gold, some remnants of a bubbly white head. Nice lemon and orange citrus aroma - grassy as well. Fresh and almost minty. Taste is nice - bright citrus fruit taste, light body - very light actually - clean, short finish, super drinkable. No gimmicks - this is what a west hop ale should be - right on style with the fresh hops making the better better and unique. Well done Nickel Brook and well done high quality Ontario hops!
