4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear (first glass) to hazy (second glass) straw with two fat fingers of fluffy white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is lemon zest, mild banana and cloves, light white pepper and bubblegum, coriander, wheaty malt. (8/10) Taste is mild to moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, moderately dry finish. (4/5)
Iíve only ever had one other white IPA, and that one was a bit of a shelf turd (and pear, to boot). So, much like with the red IPA I had yesterday, I donít have a real deep background upon which to base a review of this. (And how many more colour variations on IPA are we gonna see? Iíve seen white, red, and black so far - whatís next? Blue? Green?) That said, though this might not be the best Phillips Iíve had, but itís up there. Itís an interesting combination of witbier and IPA characteristics, decently balanced and even-handed. Worth checking out, if you can find this limited release. (16/20)

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours hazy gold with a small white rim. Aroma is wheat and pine hops. Taste is dry, wheat and pine hop bitterness. Nice beer, just not really my style.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a good finger of white head. Aroma is a mix of fruity hops and spicy yeast. Taste is pretty much the same. Overall a pretty decent beer.

Sweet fruity and floral aroma; lots of green fruits and hints of butter. Exotic fruits and grape hoppiness in the flavour. Mild aftertaste with some orange zest and sweet notes.

Tap at The Alibi Room, Vancouver. Pours a hazy yellow straw with a white head. Aroma has lemon, light meat, bubblegum, pepper - it's nice. Medium body, medium carbonation. Candy, caramel, bubblegum, lemon, light veg, light spice. Sweet but nicely balanced. Good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of citrus, very appealing. The pour is pale yellow, with a quick dissipating head. Taste is very refreshing, hops, citrus, awesome.

Bottled at Nourish bistro Banff. Beautiful tropical fruit aroma, pours a great clear pale gold colour, peaches and cream texture and flavour and then some subtle grapefruit to finish. Perfect.

Bottle. Nice taste, a bit of citrus, but could use more hops. Not really an IPA without the hop flavour.

This was really nice. Light golden yellow body with lasting thin but foamy white head and some lacing. Fresh citrus and wheat aroma. Like the residue from a good Peruvian ceviche. Taste is citrus, soap, and sweet malts. Nice unique beer. Great for summer.
