Phillips Brewing Company – Victoria BC.

April 20th 2015: Inspired by the land of the Kiwi, the Phillips Brewing Apteryx is a brand new fruity IPA that features New-Zealand grown Nelson Sauvin hops. The hop is a relative newcomer, first appearing in 2000 after careful cultivation, and imparts such a distinctive white wine “fruitiness” that Sauvin portion of the name was actually borrowed from the Sauvignon Blanc grape.

The Apteryx IPA pours a clear apricot colour with a marshmallow white head.  A medium-bodied malt base highlights notes of tropical fruits, gooseberries, nettles, and freshly crushed grapes.  Finishes dry.You can find this refreshing seasonal sipper at craft-focused private stores for a limited time only, or you can pop by the Phillips brewery  Thursday April 23, 2015 from 4-6 for a special draft tasting.
