This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Electric Unicorn is a hop-infused White ale; best enjoyed while riding a mystical mono-horned laser beast, racing through the galaxy to the sonic backdrop of screaming metal guitars. Time to ditch reality and take this India pale fairy tale for a ride.

Poured a cloudy, golden yellow with a thick, creamy, rocky head that retains well.
smells of hops with light citrus, tangerine, mild spice (all spice or clove)
tastes starts off with the hoppy pine followed by a clove and citrus ending with a biscuit malt.
I really enjoyed this beer, very refreshing and light. leaves the tangerine lingering in your mouth.

Bomber poured into an English pint glass. Very light gold with a gorgeous creamy white head that retains its form well. Wonderful hop aroma, lychees, pineapple, muscat grapes, and tangerine with just a hint of spicy Belgian yeast. Hops lead the way on the nose. Taste features more of the yeast components, shortbread cookie, pears, coriander, and light clove, soda crackers, and reasonably bold hops that evoke tropical musky guava and perfumed lychees, pink grapefruit, fresh cut grass, lemon tea and just a whiff of spruce. Light bodied yet quite sweet, with a rather wet fruity hop finish that recalls grapefruit and orange smoothies. The Belgian character is certainly detectable but decidedly downplayed in favor of the American hops, and one can pick out quite a few flavors here. Rather brilliant summer IPA selection with more alcohol than a session brew (this might be rather deceptive ... ABV seems much lower, subjectively). Different flavor for Phillips in that the house yeast character is missing (different strain obviously) and the hops are tasty but not pungent. Not a criticism, as much as I do love Phillips IPAs.
