COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This locally handcrafted ale is unfiltered and unpasteurized to enhance its character It is brewed with the finest Canadian Barley, hops, pure water and our signature yeast. Because this beer is naturally carbonated, it may have a light dusting of yeast at the bottom. Pour it slowly to leave the yeast in the bottle, or pour it in, it tastes great!

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2010
341ml bottle from a private order. Nice amber, and great head retention. Aroma of hops, and some sweetness. Flavour doesn’t have as much hop bitterness as the aroma suggests, but a nice drinkable beer all the same.

garthicus (2787) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 10, 2010
Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: golden orange, hazy, snow white head, lots of visible carbonation. Aroma: super mango, strawberry, pineapple, a little yeast and some mild orange. Flavour: lots of initial carbonation, malt, pine, deliciously refreshing orange with a long bitter finish. Lovely.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2010
Single bottle purchased in Revelstoke, BC...drank from the bottle. Nose: Dust - barnyard, faint hop, sour nut. Taste: Again medium sour....yeast? Hops that mingle with rye bread and a tight punch of dry bran. Really expected more from this. Perhaps the bottle was old.

JoeZasada (298) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle, ’hop-circle’ version. Pours a light amber with a thick white head that lasts. Aroma of hops - pine, citrus. Tastes very hoppy... moderate bitterness, lots of citrus and pine flavours, probably some dry hopping as well. Moderate malt body, slightly sweet. Finishes with a good hop bitterness, notes of citrus and pine. Very good!

pootzboy (1632) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2010
Bottle from trade: Pours a light copper hazed ale in the glass. Great sticky cap lasts and laces the glass. Aromas of musty grapefruit and raisin bread. Not overly complex but a boilerplate APA, Rich malting and decent cascade hopping give fair balance and a long bitter finish. Not outstanding but very good as west coast IPAs go.

manuchampions (1241) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Vancouver. I’ve had this so many times before with its original, Indian inspired label. The redesign is, I guess, smart from a marketing perspective, but it feels pretty gimmicky to me. Golden yellow with a good head, this beer is well carbonated as well, which really accentuate the hops. Adequate west coast hopping but is integrated well. Enjoyable but not a standout.

mcberko (9223) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010
Bottle, pours a hazy dark copper with a small white head. Medium hops aroma, with caramel malt. Flavour is more balanced for an IPA. Pretty good. Phillips’ other two IPAs are superior.

PWheatley (119) - , Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2010
on draft at the beagle pub. Pours orange with a minimal head which produced nice lacing for the whole pint. Citrus hop aroma and taste. Excellent IPA not to over powering but the hops are certainly there.
