Nickelbrook has always been my favourite brewery but recently they have really been off. Headstock has been all over the place for the past six months after being delicious and consistent for the previous year. I think it's the switch to, and growing pains with, the newer, bigger brewery. I don't know what I'll do if they can't get it together by the time they brew up a new batch of Immodest.

Agreed. I liked last years much better. Different hops were used this year, so it should taste very different, however, I prefer last years edition.

I may be placing myself in the minority here, but I am actually really enjoying this year's Wet Hop. To me it is a startlingly clean taste of white grape juice; I don't get the reported artificial candy taste at all.

I also noticed that they no longer label their cans with dates. I was in Laird LCBO last week and searched all over a few cans before giving up and buying a different beer.


They still print the dates on them...in black ink on a dark grey can. It's there, but next to impossible to read!


Booo. It was easier when the date was on the bottom of the can. The last few I picked up at the brewery didn't have it on the bottom and figured they just missed that step.

I've actually picked up fresher cans of headstock at the LC than at the brewery.

When Headstock is on point, it is hands down the best IPA available here. And Immodest is the best IIPA.

Agreed about Headstock. When a fresh batch came in a few months back I was extremely impressed.
