On tap at Eccentric Cafť. Clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of cat pee, pine, resinous hops, toasted malts and some citrus. Taste is resinous with plenty of pine and some floral and citrusy hops as well. Enough malt to keep it in check with a moderate bitter and dry finish.

Considering this was the winner of Bellís homebrew contest, Iím impressed. A unique take on the style, and at 8.1%, wow, some beers claim to be double IPAs with not much more gravity than that. I didnít find this to have over-the-top aromatics per se, but the balance was appreciated and the ABV well disguised. I thought it held up well against the array of offerings at the cafe, so a pat on the back is in order for Oscarís brewer.

On tap at the eccentric cafe. What an absolutely fantastic blend of goodness and pure wonderful loveliness this is. Smells and tastes like a bowl full of citrus fruit and pine needles... Very good blend with the malt. All around exceptional homebrew. Very well done!

On tap at Eccentric. So if you asked me what my ideal IPA would be like, it would be an awful lot like this. Clear orange body with a nice bi of head and aromas of oranges, mangoes and pine trees. Flavor closely matches the nose. This is freaking good!!!!!

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2011
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Straw-orange body, thin off-white ring of carbonation. Nose of citrus rind and tropical fruits. Bitter body with abundant tangerine rind. Quite good.
