COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boat loads of mosaic hops, famous for their hop-tropic punch to the palate, really shine in this seasonal IPA featuring flavours of guava and mango. Subtle IPA bitterness keeps everything fresh for a tasting experience thatís symmetrically balanced any way you spin it.

Slightly hazy, light amber, thin head. All honeydew and cantaloupe, mosaic-style, Very fresh crunchy, yummy, malt taste is actually what stands out first. Decent bitterness, almost pithy, and moving into those melony hops. Finishes with great balance between fresh, fruity melon hops and the best malt character Iíve ever experienced in a Phillips beer. Really good, but it got really chewy as it warmed.

Oh man this is amazing. Aroma of delicious hops and citrus. Taste is the same. Very very well balanced and lots of passion fruit citrus goodness.

Pure citrus flavour with a very very weak pine. There is some malt taste in there but itís mostly citrus. A nice IPA for those like myself that canít stand pine.

Aroma is that of grapefruit, citrus and clove. Taste is a sweet maltiness that is dominated by hopiness that leaves a distinct bitterness. Body is a slightly ha, y gold with a frothy head that retains well.

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are quite grassy, with hints of white grapefruit and pine resin. Flavours are grassy and melon-like, with white pepper and dusty grains. Fairly bitter and medium bodied. Ok overall, but lacks a certain juicy quality that would have made it great.

YigSvartka (58) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Nice sized head, dark yellow/orange hue. Robust yeast, lemon and hops scent. Medium body, quite smooth, and very hoppy. Hops dominates the flavour, but grassy, earthy elements are present as well. Lingering bitterness. I like.

dreamflower (542) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Iím not getting tonnes of aroma, but there is something there. A little pissy perhaps. Pretty attractive beer. Nice and clear with a creamy frothy head. Taste is what I appreciate most because it taste like bitter grapefruit so quite nice with a touch of honey.

northropfrye (2082) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Light golden body with lots of foamy white head and nice lacing. Zap of citrus and a touch of pine in the aroma. Taste is semi-bitter with nice citrus, melon, cucumber taste. Nice ipa.

cards04 (1606) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours a clear golden with lots of fluffy white head. Initial aromas of resinous dank hops. After awhile the tropical fruit notes come through. Very nice. Flavors are sweet guava and citrus with a pleasant bitterness. A very nice beer.

crackedmachine (469) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy, pale yellow-gold with a thin white head. Aroma is rather mild, but conveys fruity, tropical hops, maybe a hint of pine. Flavor has upfront bitterness alongside sweet elements of tropical fruit and hints of caramel/candy. Malt is in the backseat, plenty of fruity hops, somewhat thin.
