October 15th, 2013: It’s hop harvest season and Green Reaper, Phillips Brewing Company’s annual fresh-hop IPA, is back! This year’s Reaper is packed with fresh cascade hops which were shipped straight from the farm and into the brew kettle. Grapefruit aroma and flavours are underpinned with slight floral hints. This IPA remains subtly sweet, featuring a vibrancy and delicacy that can only come from full-cone, never-dried hops.
Harvest your bottle at private craft-focused liquor stores before this fresh-hop apparition disappears for another year!
Phillips will also hosting a free draft tasting of this seasonal specialty down at the Victoria based Phillips HQ on Wednesday October 16th from 4-6pm; so pop on down and help celebrate hop harvest season the best way possible: over a beer.
