VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the return of a seasonal brand that was one of the earliest examples of its hybrid style.
Hoperation Tripel Cross is a 7.3% abv ale that was originally released in 2010. It’s described as follows:
This tasty IPA was a bit of a maverick when it debuted, as it was one of the early Belgian IPAs. Nosediving right into a classic Belgian yeast, Hoperation Tripel Cross creates a superfortress of flavour sure to send your tastebuds soaring. A light citrus nose with lemon accents yields to delicate Belgian esters. Balanced by big floral hops and mild black pepper spice, this tasty brew finishes with light crystally malt character and a fleeting clean bitterness.
Hoperation Tripel Cross will be available in 650 ml bottles at the Phillips brewery store and select private liquor stores in BC. It will also be available to sample on draught alongside the previously announced Solaris White Peach Ale during a launch event at the Phillips brewery today (May 4th) from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.
