Of the four anonymous beers featured in the pack, Mystery Beer C – a New England-style IPA – received 34.2% of the online votes from customers picking their favourite.
Now known as Wicked Awesome IPA (6.5% abv, 64 IBU), it’s described as follows:
Wicked Awesome IPA is brewed with Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops and a Vermont ale yeast. The beer is hazy and juicy with big orange and tangerine aromas, dank tropical flavours and a smooth, full-bodied finish.
Wicked Awesome IPA will be released this spring in 473 ml cans at Nickel Brook’s retail shop and online store, and at select LCBO locations. It will also be found on draught at select licensees in Ontario.
