Phillips Brewing Co – Green Reaper Fresh Hop IPA (2012) Review
The Green Reaper is a Fresh Hop IPA offered from the Phillips Brewing Co. The beer pours with a thick set of fingers in a fluffy head. The colour is a golden colour that verges on amber. The smell is light, fresh and has a distinct hop to it. Where a traditional dry-hopped IPA has a sharpness to it this is mellow and smooth while maintaining the flavour of a quality NorthWest Hop. The beer is smooth, flavourful and has a touch of citrus to it. This is easy drinking and very enjoyable, where Phillips tends to take things over the top and debatably push a beer’s uniqueness a little too far the Green Reaper finds a happy home between the traditional and way out there..
