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.

ljthiessen (312) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Really interesting aromas, candy-sweet tropical fruits and a hint of Belgian yeast. Very light bodied, sweet without being malty, some Belgian yeast and noticeable hops in the flavour. Definitely something different. Very drinkable. Not bad, but too light. Hides the ABV very well.

Lagerboy (1172) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Bomber. Clear yellow, thicker white lasting foam. Spicy wit, tropical fruity hop aroma. Lighter tasting spiced wit malt with sweeter tropical fruity hops, lemony citrus, pineapple, some yeastiness, no bitterness saves this one. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. A better hybrid makes it: MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

Howlader (700) - - JUN 27, 2014
On draught at Beer Revolution in Edmonton. Interesting take on an IPA. Could be a little more hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Hazy blonde, fresh aroma with a lot of papaya, melon and mandarin hops, along with a dash of yeast and some spiciness. Earthy, fruity, peachy character. Moderate bitterness but lots of fruity dry hop character, wit malt sweetness and background spice. Nice character, sweet but refreshing.

HopCircus (5) - Penticton, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014 does not count
Lots of topical fruit in the nose. Was expecting more bready overtones but it's pretty flat on the flavour. Hop presence is subtle for a whit IPA -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
10oz

Hazy blond color. The aroma is fresh, citrusy, very peachy. The mouthfeel is lean and quite smooth; not much malt flavor, a bit of wheat, an impression of pond water, Peachy hops, a bit of yeast spices; correct bitterness.
It has the hop qualities, not the bitterness of a (white) IPA , mind, this is not a sin.
Nice.

Gold,stark white head.Vague lemon nose.Nondescript palate,citrus hints,slightly dry,faint hop finish.Easy drinking, but boring

simonblaine (271) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours lager colored pale brown, really frothy head. Aroma of pine and tropical fruit. Taste of mildly hoppy wheaty lager with a lovely ripe mango finish. Lovely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

Masterkush7 (494) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Another great Phillips ipa. This pours a nice hazy straw color with medium head. Aromatic of fruity hop aromas and light grainyness. Taste wonderful with lots of tropical fruit from the hops. Could e a bit bitter but it compliments the beer well. Bottoms up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
