COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At 7.5% ABV & 100 IBUs, Phalanx is somewhere between a single IPA & a double IPA. It prominently features Australian Summer hops, which bring a very distinctive peach/melon character to the beer. That awesome fruit character is balanced by some citrusy Chinook hops & a touch of dankness from Horizon.

hopscotch (9550) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a white, fat-bubbled head. The aroma is a juicy medley of fuzzy fruit, tropical fruits and melons. Medium-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor offers a boatload of fruitiness accompanied by a generous measure of rindy bitterness. Finishes bittersweet – more bitter than sweet. Bottle courtesy of richiesd!

thome50 (1082) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle, probably a little too old. Pours a deep orange with frothy white head. Aroma is very big peach hops. Taste is a nicely sweet peach, pear and hoppy beer. Maybe a little too sweet as it warms. Nice but was expecting a little more from an IPA from Modern Times.

maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 28, 2014
Tap at World Craft Beer Tasting 2014. Pungent grassy nose, fresh weeds crushed up in a mortar. Muddy amber brown color. Nice light citrusy initial, sort of goes to an orange soft drink in mid, and returns to form in late mid and final, with fairly scratchy hopping. Medium body, Doesn’t really seem to have such a high IBU level. Unusual, interesting flavors.

Tap at World Craft Beer Tasting 2014. Deep orange-amber color, very cloudy, fine head. Huge tropical fruit nose, peach and melon, some citrus, wheaty biscuit, nice balanced bitterness. Weird and good.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2361) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2014
On tap at World Craft Beer Tasting. A deep honey amber color with a juicy orange citrusy hop bouquet. Medium bodied with a zesty sharp carbonation. Very interesting sweet dank pine flavor, really sweet syrupy with enough hops to cut through it and balanced it out. Nice stuff.
