A- Pours a slightly hazy yellow, with a frothy white head.

S- I get piney hops and citrus with every whiff of this beer.

T- Citrus/pine hops upfront, with a residual sweetness at the end. Not too bitter, but just enough to keep me wanting more. Dank finish.

M- This is where the beer really excels-- a creamy but light body, with a sparkly carbonation gives this one maximum quaffability.

O- This beer does exactly what it is supposed to do and is, in my opinion, a perfect representation of the style. When I want to knock back a sixer before a night out, this is what I buy. Not boring by any means, and should be reviewed for what it is.

Certainly looks like a so-called ISA, very light golden yellow brew with ample white foam. Smells like classic Phillips hops and yeast albeit more bright and vibrant as opposed to dank and weedy, although certainly some of the latter character is present. Bright citrus fruit bowl aroma with a few tropical notes. Smooth and creamy with a pleasantly moderate degree of fizz and a thin enough body to drink in quantity, like many blonde ales, but hopped more aggressively of course. Sweet honey malt provides the backbone while fruity, weedy hops lead the way. I get some interesting flavors in this, grapes and cherries along with the more typical sweet iced tea/citrus flavors and pine, although the latter is downplayed compared to other Phillips IPAs. Not terribly astringent but full of rich hop flavor nonetheless, coupled to a nigh-perfect level of malty sweetness to provide balance. Some may wonder at my high ratings but I feel Phillips nailed what they were trying to do here and damn straight I'd session this.
