COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottled; Special.

Brewed in Chicago on the Summer Solstice 2013 by Tom Newman of Celt Experience Brewery, Ben Saller of Atlas Brewing Co. and Jesse Edwin Evans and Samuel Evans of Ale Syndicate. The recipe was inspired by a Celtic legend surrounding the solstice and blends 7 different hops (Cascade, Citra, East Kent Golding, Simcoe, Hallertau, Warrior and Columbus) to create a smooth, citrusy and aromatic double IPA.
At 8.1% ABV and 60 IBUs, Seven Flowers will challenge and excite hop lovers on both sides of the Atlantic.

Theydon_Bois (9930) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle at home, from Oddbins LB as Celt Seven Flowers, 07/03/14. Hazed dark orange amber with a big ole frothed up white head dress of bubbledom. Nose is candied sugars, caramel malts, pine, sweet tones, candyfloss, pine, bitter grapefruit in the background, pine. Taste is caramel malt forward, lick of honey, orange pith, caramac bar, floral notes, quite sweet, bitter tropicals, candyfloss. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, a little sweet and cloying on the palate. Ok DIPA but too sweet for me and not bitter enough.

Garrold (1710) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Celt Experience version, from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Hazy, lumpy, amber. Thin, lasting, off white head. Light toffee. Ripe peach. A little bubblegum. Taste is thick sweetness. A pithy bitterness rolls around, a couple of days later, then hangs about, helping itself to toast and jam, whilst you’re trying to get ready for work. Or summat.

johndoughty (4077) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle. Golden and slightly cloudy.. Poured with a small head. Hops hit you hard and dominate throughout drinking although some bitterness does eventually creep through. Left lots of lacing. A powerful and very good example of this style.
