TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, 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 it’s 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 I’m just imagining things. Nice hop/malt balance. Not a lot of bitterness. Very drinkable.

Gorbalev (3000) - 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!

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle [750ml]. Pours a hazy, bubbly yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head and a good amount of lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of grain, citrus hops, fruit and herbs. Flavour of citrus hops, fruit, herbs and an average bitter finish. A touch watery but it’s quite tasty. Average bodied. Really enjoyable and easy to drink.

jksipa (799) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
750ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy very pale orange with a generous white head and lots of lacing. Nose is fresh cut grass, hay and citrus with a layer of honey in the background. Lots of hops bitterness through the front and middle but smoothed out by a peaches and honey sweetness. The finish could use some more punch. The body is light and slick with average carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head and no lace. Aroma of citrus, steamed veggies, chlorophyll, fresh cut grass and light sweet malts. Taste is veggies, tropic fruit, fresh cut grass, caramel maltiness and a nice smooth smooth bitterness throughout. Medium carbonation gives and a medium body give this beer a very easy to drink feel.

GlennHendry (300) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2016 Light citrus on the nose. I get more citrus, a bit of lemon zest, some tropical fruit and a dollop of sweetness. Nicely balanced.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2015
750 ml bottle from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a clear straw yellow with a couple fingers of white head that fade rapidly leaving little lace.

Aroma: Hops, grapefruit, bit of bread

Flavours: Grapefruit, lemon, lime and other citrus. Sweeter flavours like apple and peach come out after the beer is open for a bit.

Mouthfeel: Thinner with average carbonation.

Overall: An interesting blend of citrus that turns towards the sweet side after the beer is open a while. I found it a little on the thin side but the interesting flavours made this one an enjoyable beer.
