The Phillips Octofox IPA – Exploring the World of Hops

octofox-588x200 PhillipsOctofoxPress Release from the Phillips Brewing Co. 

September 15th 2014
 Tucked away in a quiet corner of Phillips Brewing Co is a development lab dedicated to exploring the delicious world of hops. It’s a place where different hop combinations yield all sorts of unique IPA hybrid brews which are released in the Hop Box under the Area 52 series.

Octofox was one of the early specimens to come out of the Area 52 program, and it was so good we’ve opted to put it out in its own bomber!  It pours a deep golden colour with a soft marshmallow white head.  Full bodied and bright, flavours of citrus are balanced against a pine-bitter hop profile that finishes dry. Octofox is selectively brewed to be broadly enjoyed.

Octofox is available from your favourite Cold Beer & Wine Stores now, and BC Liquor stores later this week.  Beer lovers are also invited down to the brewery on Thursday September 18th from 4-6pm for a special draft tasting.
