Phillips Brewing – Amnesiac Double IPA: Hailing from Victoria, this craft beer is brewed at a strength of 8.5% abv and was enjoyed at home from a 22 oz bottle with a freaky elephant on it.
Aroma and Appearance: The colour is clear golden honey with two fingers of white foam and very bubble interior. The aroma was muted mango, some peach and a bit of bread malt.
Flavour: I could detect a bit of light bread malt, with lots of herbal hops up front. The middle was lemon citrus and caramel with a piney woodsy bitter finish.
Overall Impression: This is similar to a lot of “summer” IPA’s out there, lots of hops, refreshing but not much of a malt presence.
Rating: I give it a very good rating of 7/10, it is good offering that I would recommend to others but also not overly complex.
Food Pairing: The website suggest stir fried tofu with oyster sauce – say what? Personally, spicy fish tacos sounds a lot more appetizing to me.
