Phillips Brewing Company
British Columbia, Canada

Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Not sure why this is categorized as a Belgian IPA when the label clearly says White IPA which would make it a wit with hops, not an IPA with Belgian yeast which seems to be what some people are expecting.

Purchased at the LCBO for just over $6.00 for a 650ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 2" high white head that lasts forever. Rather light gold color and filtered clear. Foam looks creamy

S- Lemon, herb, orange peel.

T- Light and mild for 6.5%. No heat, not a trace. Sweet and bitter. Nice combination. Nothing too powerful but a mild blend of coriander and various citrus flavors. Hops open up over time and warmth

M- Creamy head. Nice overall brew

O- Nice brew overall. Just a colorful brew at a reasonable price. The hops come alive as it warms so go slow Danielson.

Food Pairing

This wonderful little brew went well with........ Lasagna. This one was high on meat and low on noodles to give a gummy cheesy pan of delicious goodness. This brew opens up with time and the combo just grows better and better

Enjoy

A-Clear golden yellow, with a pure white head
S-Dank pine and Citrus with a spice lingering in the background, also a floral aroma with bread notes
T-The dankness of the hops used pedomijoate this beer, I get the 'white' by the absence of malt character.
M-Medium mouthfeel with a high carbonation, reminiscent of a Belgium style beer. Dry, crisp finish
O-This was a pretty good beer, not sure why the ratings are so low. Perhaps the expectation of a white IPA is up for debate
