To be immodest has to lack humility and decency. With out Immodest Imperial IPA, we achieved just that! Obscene use of Citra & Simcoe hops will atack your senses with bright citrus fruit, balanced with earthy pine notes. The indecency doesnt stop there, as it packs a wallop at 9.5% but you wont notice because it drinks so remarkably smooth. Dont worry, your modesty isnt needed here.

can courtesy of mathieuc, many thanks bro! unclear light but bright golden with a very nice white head offering good retention and lacing. sweet tangerines, buttery melon, berry and mango fruitiness, toastiness - with some caramel unfortunately; lots of fruity sugars, tingling alcohol, lots of sticky resin. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily; sweet and unbalanced citrusy-piney finish. under-attenuated, buttery over-ripened mangoes. meh.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
Pours hazy honey with a creamy firm slightly off-white head. Decent streaky lacing. Looks pretty great. Nose is dull considering whats written in the description. Notes of pine-needles, earth, and pot. A little sweet, but its quite well balanced for such a big beer. Alcohol is well masked behind sweet medium roasted bready malts, and tangerine and resiny hops. There were some cardboard accent in the offset which left quickly. Apricot and modest caramel in the finish. I could see two of these causing a lot of problems. Nice to see Nickel Brook achieving balance in the big beer category. This is extremely good, even considering the $5/can price tag.

Location: 16 oz can purchased at Andersons Sawmill Appearance: Deep golden pour. Tiny white bubbles. Good Lace Nose: Pine and citrus. A touch of acrid and funk. Taste: Clover honey on the tongue followed by fresh pine forest and a touch of grapefruit Body: Medium to lighter body. Parting thoughts: Very nice IPA from a can. from Canada. That might be a first for me.

Thanks to "Justin" for this pint sized can, 9.0%. Pours a strong golden with a small offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of fruits, pine, very faint onions and alcohol. I say alcohol but this doesnt feel at all like an headache coming and it doesnt feel like 9% at all. Taste is slightly sweet, offers a piny (and moderately high) bitterness and more fruits. The sweetness I wouldnt describe as caramel, more like a simple syrup. Pretty agressive but not from the alcohol, just from the constant beating of the hops. Body is moderate, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is slightly syrupy and sticky. Intense drying alcohol. A pretty fun strong boost IIPA. For technical/social purposes I would go for multiple Headstock instead of one of these, though.

Un grand merci Ju-Lo pour la dgustation! Un liquide qui coule lourdement dans ma tulipe. En le faisant tournoyer dans mon verre, le liquide me semble collant, rsineux, riche et dune rondeur dcadente pour une IIPA. Le Citra joue un rle de premier plan dans cette bire aussi prs du conifre boral que du fruit tropical. Astringent le tant au nez quen bouche, charge dagrumes et daiguilles de pin et ponctue dune pointe dammoniac. Toute aussi collante au palais qu la paroi de mon verre, de longues jambes sucres coulent lentement, trs lentement lorsque je repose mon verre sur la table. Capiteuse, astringent, punche, une IIPA dacier aussi facile boire quelle est autoritaire!

473 ml can, canned on date of 08 April 2016. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a golden/orange color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention is good, and theres a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy (tropical fruit, grapefruit) and pine hops, along with some caramel malt. For the most part I think the flavor is similar to the aroma, but theres also some oranges and bready malt noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, its creamy and coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. Its also smooth and easy to drink. Overall I thought this was a good brew, next time Ill have to try a fresher can. Unfortunately I wasnt able to buy a can until last weekend since I hadnt noticed it in the area before then. Definitely worth a try! $5.99 a single can.

Can pour hazy dark gold with orange hue and moderate white head. Nose mango, kiwi, floral, light resin and sweet malt. Taste moderate bitter bite up front, grapefruit, then tropical fruit, grassy, and light dank. Mid palate moderate balancing sweetness mixed with bitterness that lasts through the finish.

Metalchopz (3339) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2016
Can from the LCBO with a 9% ABV. Pours a cloudy golden-amber colour with a warm cap, good retention and loads of thick foamy lacing. Aromas of full citrus and tropical fruits. Again in the taste, all very well-balanced with a soft dry bitterness in the finish. Grapefruits, oranges, very mild caramel. Yep, could drink many of these, as very nicely brewed.

Beautiful murky orange body. The glass has a sudsy wash in it, as you go through the motions of drinking. Some spicy hops on the nose. Kind of like bar-b-q chips, crossed with garlic, all wrapped up in traditional citrus hop aromas. Tastes are a blend of pine, and blood oranges. A bitter start, and velvety smooth finish. Real nice, high quality brew. Pretty serious abv, so be aware when tempted to quaff this.
