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!

341 ml bottle at C’est What. Pours a cloudy golden orange with smallish white head. Aroma is citric and piney hops with solid caramel malt base. Flavour is big and hoppy (grapefruit, pine) with a nice caramel malt balance. Average plus body. Quite good.

dresden (848) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 16, 2012
Hazy dark gold with a fluffy head. Smells pretty aromatic with lots of citrus and floral notes. Tastes sweet with some mild hops. A bit on the watery side. Could make a nice session IPA. There’s some fresh cut grass taste in here. It’s alright, not my favourite Philips beer.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Nice aroma of citrus and some husky grainy malts. Light sweetness, good citrus, lightly herbaceous. Pours golden, nice head and lace. The flavor is nice and citrusy, bright, herbal, grainy, a little sweetness here and there, more citrus. Refreshing, drinkable. In my opinion really well done and extremely enjoyable. Really a solid house IPA. Good stuff here.

12oz can from AKRiverside. Pours clear pale golden. Aromas of citrus with light hops and some caramel malts. Flavors of grassy hops, some grapefruits, decent amount of malts, and finishes with some hop bitterness. Decent body and carbonation. Decent IPA.

I tried this beer on December 9, 2011 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a weak clouded lemon yellow colour with a thin white head head which disappeared quickly. The aroma was grains and citrus hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was weak grainy malt and weak citrus hops. Just an ’ok’ beer.

Cirrhosis (1208) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
"Hazy yellowy amber with tall fluffy cap. Aroma is very citrusy, grape fruit, oranges, flowers, more stuff, packed full of caramel malt. Sweet brew with a big bitter finish, heavy citrus, mild soap. Chocolate shows up in the finish, more flowers. Man i can drink this fast, goes back easy. Bitter lingers but not that long. Good completely average brew."
