BC Beer – Phillips 9 Donkeys of the Hopocalypse

August 30, 2010

Phillips’ latest beer, brewed to celebrate their ninth anniversary, is a double IPA. And that is essentially what it is, a beefed up version of their regular IPA, Hop Circle. Lots of tropical flavours with a hints of pine and a warming alcohol that blends well with the assertive hoppiness. I’m assuming that it was a single batch, so I shouldn’t suffer from the horrible inconsistency that Hop Circle is plagued by. Pick up a bottle or three if you can find it. It is better than Amnesiac and, as with Hop Circle, no inconsistency issues.
