Phillips Amnesiac Double IPA
I am breaking with normal routine, starting with an IPA. This is, however, a big bottle, and at 8.5%alcohol, it may render me completely unconscious.
I don’t know why it’s called a double IPA… Could be twice as strong, or twice as big. Either way… Nice!!
The colour is amber and a little bit cloudy. The name prepares you for big taste, and the flavor has a nice fresh bite that fades steadily after drinking.
Overall this is a good fresh local IPA.
Also, I am enjoying this on my newly finished deck. The weather is perfect too, what a great afternoon!
PS, I also found out that phillips beer has a website, www.phillipsbeer.com, where you can access their blog. You can also follow @phillipsbeer on twitter.
This is an exciting beer that is very flavorful, and not for the timid casual beer drinker. For me, it has the character and strength to be a new favorite IPA.
