kevinsenn (2090) - 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 (305) - 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 (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 its 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 Im 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 (7461) - 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 its quite tasty. Average bodied. Really enjoyable and easy to drink.

jksipa (837) - 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.

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.
