To be immodest one has to lack humility and decency. With our ‘Immodest’ Imperial IPA, we achieved just that! Obscene use of Citra and Simcoe hops will attack your senses with bright citrus fruit, balanced with earthy pine notes. The indecency doesn’t stop there, as it packs a wallop at 9% but you won’t notice because it drinks so remarkable smooth. Don’t worry, you’re modesty isn’t needed here!

Cloudy brew with loads of head. Orange and pine smells, grapefruit. Citrus tastes abound. Dry and bitter. Nicely carbonated. I am glad that Nickel Brook is moving operations to Hamilton.

On-tap at Rhino.

Beer has a cloudy marmalade colour. Moderately sized white head. Decent retention, some lace.

Citrus and tropical fruits are prominent in the nose. Smells like citra. Grapefruit, pineapple.

The same tropical and citrus fruits as the nose are present in the flavour. Fairly bitter. Alcohol is noticeable. Some bready malt, lots of heat.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated, lots of alcohol burn.

Overall, not bad, but not something I would have again.
