Papillon (426) - Ottawa, 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. barncatmatt (2287) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013

Purchased at the LCBO. Mild flavour. The nose is fresh and has citrus notes. Pours clear with a quickly dissipating head. Finishes sweet. Strangebrewer (1334) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2017
can. Poured hazy gold with a creamy off-white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Medium-light body, creamy carbonation with a refreshing mouthfeel. Sweet and malty, citrusy orange flavour, herbal hops, slightly peppery, some yeasty esters. A really fresh drinkable ale. robinvboyer (4738) - 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!

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. 97hill (220) - - OCT 10, 2016
OK I liked this from the start not even concerned it was half a buck over where it should be priced, but that should be fixed!
Very fresh very clean very subtle hoppiness I like it.
Pours a mid amber, not to carbonated , a really tasty fall beer. Not sure where the negative reviews originate from except if those people only drink BUD et al.
Well done again Nickel Brook, keep putting out tasty beer.

473 ml can from lcbo. Poured quietly with average carbonation. The beer has a light amber colour with a rich white head and lots of long lasting lace. The crisp dry hoppy start is followed by a malty smoothness expanding into the middle. There is a long finish with hints of grapefruit and a touch of soft fruit sweetness. Mouthfeel thins out slightly towards the end. A much better than average PA. JoeMcPhee (9517) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
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.It’s just a clean, fresh tasty APA.cfrancis (3536) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014

Tap at C’est 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.
One of the better wet hop beers that I’ve 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.
