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.

Bottled version brewed by Celt Experience in Caerphilly, not Chicago! Hazy deep amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with mild minerally carbonation. Smooth creamy malt, light caramel. Nice piney hops with a little juicy citrus. Finishes smooth and semi dry with a final carbonated nip and the piney hops turning slightly minty. Very drinkable.

Leighton (10960) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Keg at the Rake - London. Pours cler, deep gold with a fine, filmy cream head. The aroma has jammy fruits, dank citrus, ripe melon, papaya. Medium to big sweet flavor with lots of ripening tropical fruits, some bread, white grapes, tangerine. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, subtly resinous, plenty of malt sugars, lots more semi-ripe tropical fruits, more mango and papaya, orange and other citrus. Not bad.

FatPhil (9344) - 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. Annas 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 Im just not a hop lover.
