COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Electric Unicorn is a hop-infused white ale; best enjoyed while riding a mystical mono-horned laser beast, racing through the galaxy to the sonic backdrop of screaming metal guitars, time to ditch reality and take this India Pale fairy tale for a ride.

Visual: Eye-catching artwork, but cheap laserjet printed label (and cheap price too). Pours cloudy light orange-yellow with a decent lasting foamy head, lots of sticky lacing, lots of activity, and lots of sediment in the bottle. Nose: orange, wheaty malts and a bit of citrus tang Attack: creamy fizzy yeastiness, 4/10-sweetness Mid-palate: light orange, wheat malts, coriander, light tang/sourness Finish: watery texture, off-dry yeasty finish Summary: Decent drinkability but lacks punching power. It doesn’t leave much of an impression other than it’s a wheaty ale.

Cirrhosis (1175) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
This bottle is so freaking awesome its awesome!!!! A unicorn in space surrounded by green lightning!!! COME ON THIS IS AWESOME!!! Light gold body with a rocky white cap floating on top. I’ll be honest never really had a white IPA before......... I like it better then the black. Very floral aroma, lemon, almost a vanilla, hibiscus..... I could smell this all day. Taste is crisp light and refreshing. Strong hibiscus, lemon, good strong yeast almost banana but not. Reading other reviews it seems I’m the only one who digs this beer, I guess I’m the only awesome person here. The beer has a dry tartness that I can’t get enough of.

Purchased this in Ladysmith in the craft beers section. Aroma is pleasant with strong hints of Orange and citrus. Not your typical IPA, but it still falls in the general realm of an IPA. Outstanding aftertaste with evident spices. A solid amount of hops and a distinct orange peel flavor and aroma make this an exceptional IPA. Would highly recommend.

CapFlu (4364) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
(Draught) Samples at the Moon Under Water Brewpub in Victoria; guest tap. Decent banana nose. Very little yeastiness for a wit. Great colour and body. Not worth driving out of your way for.

J’ai bu une bouteille 650ml mais je me sens comme j’ai bu deux bières completement differentes. D’abord, j’ai versé la moitié de la bière dans une verre. La première verre avait une petite mousse blanche et était très pale. L’arôme a ressemblé jus de pomme. Le goût était un peu d’houblon et peut-être du zeste d’orange. Quand j’ai versé la reste il a ressemblé un mimossa. Jaune foncé, même orange, avec une petite mousse. L’arôme d’orange et de coriandre. Très fruitée, un peu bizzare pour une bière. Si je l’aurai goûter sans savoir que c’était une bièrre j’aurai peut-être de difficulté lui reconnaître comme une. Si je vais la boire de nouveau je la laisserai réposer sur son coté!

Disappointed in the mislabeled bottle though I’ve always like the labels, ipa does not belong white or not. On another note I do enjoy the lace that sticks around, the flavour and taste of orange yeasty coriander sweetness also didn’t disappoint me.

Reimer96 (1066) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours a hazy golden straw color with a white head. Smells of wheat and coriander. Would really like this to be a lot more hoppy for a wipa. Kinda disappointed overall.

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Very hazy pale gold body with a thick white crown. Looks appealing! Aroma is extremely spicy in the Belgian wit department-- tons of coriander, a little sage even. Lively mouthfeel, very estery, again with a big spice hit. Quite yeasty. This is more like an imperialized wit than it is an IPA. They missed the mark on what my pre-conceived notion of the style should be (but I’m no authority), but somehow still made a tasty and flavourful brew. Nice accident!

gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2012
Pours a cloudy straw with frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeast, lemon, wheat. Medium to full bodied with a creamy mouth feel. The carbonation comes in a touch too high. Flavours of wheat, bubble gum, yeast, coriander. Finish is non-existent. There is no trace of IPA in this white ale. Though, it’s not a bad beer - quite sessionable.
