I had some of this same batch the other day, drinking very nicely indeed. An underrated IPA.

This is my go to Ontario IPA at the moment. The Jan. 14 cans are, as noted, bursting with flavour and aroma. I feel like after batches and batches of tweaking, they've finally dialed this one in. Top notch stuff.

i totally agree. this is a huge hop bomb now, just oozing with hop flavour and IMO it has the biggest, most expressive hop aroma in the province.

it really feels more comfortable in a snifter then a pint glass in its current form

Agree, I had it in a tulip. To me the aroma was much like the almost stale Red Racer I got from the LCBO, which was pretty great.

Nickel Brook really making great strides - now firmly in the top tier of Ontario craft breweries IMO.

I'm looking forward to them getting the Malevolent and Immortal back in. Those are both great too.
