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.

The_Osprey (2416) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle, chilled. Bottled 31/07 so must be exactly 4 months old. A hazy orange with a thin white head. Smell has lots of orange and a touch of kiwi. Body is medium with relatively low carbonation. Taste has some lime, green starburst sweets, maybe a touch of chemical. Not much bitterness. This is very drinkable. Good effort. I wouldn’t call this a double IPA though.

lusikka (6688) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark orange colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet and rich mango, floral notes and grapefruit. Rich flavour of rich citrusy bitterness, juicy mango, herbs, mild caramel and biscuit. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Aggressively lingering bitter and warming finish with nice tangy citrusy notes. Wow, I was amazed how good this was.

downender (6586) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle from Oddbins, Bristol. Slightly hazy, amber in colour, with a tight, white head, and slight carbonation. Sweet malts, tropical fruits and grassy hop aorma. Flavour had some big, rasping hops, digestive biscuits, a touch of pine and a dryish finish. Good.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle, poured into pint glass. Hazy, slightly orange gold. Thick, almost soapy white head. Lots of bits. Citrus hop aroma, strong. Hides anything from the malt. Perfect bitterness. Full, oily body. Tasty - but a one-at-a-time beer.

FatPhil (9821) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2013
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) - a UK bottle size, and it claims "brewed by the Celt Experience Brewery in Caerfilly, UK"
Lovely fruity hop aroma. Hazy to cloudy orange, huge bready head. Sweetish in the mouth. Seared pork fat retronasals. A bit yeasty, but I did have some crud in my glass. Anna’s was cleaner, and fattier. Harsh bitter bite, still a little earthy. Sweetish biscuity malts. Covers the alcohol mostly, but is aggressive in other directions. I guess I’m just not a hop lover.

Brewergeth (4) - Caerffili, WALES - NOV 13, 2013 does not count
Nice fruity aroma. Doesn’t feel heavy on stomach. Nice citrus flavour with a nice warm spice

suurjuust (1374) - ESTONIA - NOV 12, 2013
Hazy orange, medium creamy white head with filmy retention and nice lacing. Aroma is bready malt, kiwi, buttery notes, mangoes, citrus, caramel, piney hops. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitterness. Hoppy-buttery finish with decent bitterness and dryness. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation. Odd DIPA, but enjoyable.

McNeillR (1504) - SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2013
Dirty golden with a stern haze, nice cushion of long lasting white head. Sulphurry, heated nose, suped up mango and little else nose. Arching bitterness, grainy orange zest and a yolky mouthfeel. Muddied hop, half citrus half getaway weak tropical. Piney glue of malt before the finish of white fruit, wizened mango covered resiny sugar from a fairly static DIPA. More than decent.

Bottle, OddBins, Queensferry Road
