341ml brown bottle. Gold pour, lightly hazy. Good looking creamy white head that lasts forever, appealing messy lacing. Nose has spicy citrus, quite lemony. Taste has mild sweet malts, earthy middle, slight woody notes, slightly floral, some lemon candy. Late resiny bitterness. Medium body with medium carbonation. Still finding that Phillips house character in here... but managed to enjoy this beer anyways.

Golden pour with white head. Aroma is citrus with tropical fruits, dough. Flavour has a doughy underlying malt quality with lemon and pineapple. Lingering bitterness. Good.

DuffMan (7331) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle, from Phillips Beer Advent Calendar 2013. Hazy yellow body topped by a thick white meringue that shows incredible staying power-- Iím looking at my 3/4 empty glass and it still has a thick white head with messy lacy cobwebs all down the sides. Aroma is sharp grapefruit rind and fresh pine. Austere crackery malts, white grapefruit, touch of mint, touch of white pepper, intense bitterness. One of the best IPAs Iíve had from these guys in a long time.

Pours hazy yellow, nice bubbly head. Smells of citrus, big hops pine and a sweet cotton candy note. Taste starts a little like caramel and sweet. Than it smacks you with a ton of hop bitterness and carbonation. Finish is dry and lingering. Stay away if you do not like hops, or maybe if you even do. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reimer96 (1426) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Showcase day 5! Pours a clear yellow with a big foamy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is hop driven, citrus, pine earthy, spicy with a hint of sweet fruit. Taste is sweet citrus, some tropical fruits, earth, pine and a joke good bitterness that at first seems harsh hit is very coying and blends well with the malts. Overall a nice ipa.

Snow case day 5! Pours a crystal clear yellow with a large white head and massive amounts of lace. Aroma is citrus, earthy, spicy, pine like, and a mild sweetness. Flavour is pungent, sweet citrus, earthy, spicy, pine like, medium bitterness on the harsher side though I really enjoy it and it lingers into the after taste with a light sweet malt presence.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Rerate from the Phillips Snowcase Advent Calendar - December 5, 2013. Not much more to add to the description or scoring, but I must say this one wiped the floor in competition with the Craft BeerAdvent Calendar today. 341ml bottle from the Phillips HopBox mixer from Coop. Pours a hazy copper with a fairly frothy head. sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet orange zest and bold sappy, resinous pine note.Taste is mild sweetness (citrusy, piney, floral) and a lingering bitterness - sappy pine-tar. A really good single hop brew from Victoria.

Ferris (6521) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle - Earthy pine and resinous hops. Clear gold with a rich white head. Earthy pine again with a great balanced sweetness and appropriate bitterness. Surprisingly one of the best single hops beers I have had.

WheatKing (1319) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours hazy deep gold with white head, much lacing. Phillips perfume nose with nice blend of earth and citrus, light caramel comes out nice in the flavour, same bitterness as their Rye. Light resins. That sweet hopiness on the finish but a good balance Iíd say. Done right. First time Iíve really thought about Zeus, canít say how it compares with Columbus. Thanks, Phillips, for the chance to try it. Simple and delightful.

JoeZasada (296) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly haze light amber with a thin white head. Very aromatic, notes of citrus. Taste is hoppy, good bitterness, more citrus notes, warms to a grassy hoppness. Almost no malt taste, this beer is all about the hops. Finishes to a citrus bitterness. Pretty good, especially if the focus is on the zeus hop.

Cloudy hues of mustard and tangerine. Luxurious cumulus head. Valentines special night lacing... Hello! Fresh picked pineapple aroma. Very excited for this. Surprisingly forward citrus flavour. Taste like chewing on hemp stock at the finish. Not any complex hops work here. A strong single hop varietal presence. Iím liking this.
