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.

Garrold (1337) - 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 (3994) - 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.

50cl bottle at the Watford tasting. Thanks Fergus. It pours a slightly hazy golden colour with medium white head. Aroma is flowary and hoppy with mango orange peel. Arching bitterness, grainy orange zest and a yolky mouthfeel. Muddied hop, half citrus half getaway weak tropical. Pine needles and mango. Good one

wilftanat (12) - Shrewsbury, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Very good indeed. Lovely fruit and flower aromas with more on the palate along with clean crisp malt. Superbly balanced and complex and for the strength, supremely drinkable. There are many more fashionable beers out there not half as good as this.

Idiosynkrasie (3815) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear, orangey dark golden to amber colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Slightly sulphuric hop aroma, a touch of egg, initially just backgroundish but lasting and finally assertive citrusy and piney hop flavours, some resin. Taste is initially fruity, bitter hoppy, malty, hints of red fruit, maybe due to the East Kent Golding. Would therefore fit in the category ’Imperial/Double Bitter’ if it existed. Later more IIPA-typical, resinous and citrusy.
