HOP CIRCLE IPA

Phillips Brewing Co., Victoria, British Columbia

  • 6.5%ABV
  • Translucent golden straw coloured, unfiltered
  • Foamy head, good lacing, lots of bubbles happening….which aid in this beers crispness.
  • The aromas is of freshly washed, grass stained jeans…..grassy, floral, and slightly soapy smelling. Aggressively hopped as is the trend in Pacific Northwest IPA’s.
  • Mouth puckering bitter…….no forgeting that this is definitely an IPA. Nice grapefruit flavour. Very clean and crisp tasting, boarding on astringent.
  • Slight malty sweetness at the end….bitter hops keep the tongue awake for quite some time.
  • This beer makes me want to make Hopsicles…..yummy frozen hoppy goodness!!!
