Thanks riversideAK! Clear copper, fluffy white head. Juicy citrus nose, pineapple forward. Garlic on the sip, clean though and balanced enough into the finish. Loving it more and more with each sip. Great use of summit perhaps?

tap at founders. base centennial in every way except swapping the cent for the zythos. dark amber with minimum head.aroma of spice and grapefruit. flavor takes these characteristics and adds some bitter and dryness..

On tap at Founders brewpub, pours a clear reddish amber with a thin head, the aroma has a huge amount of tropical fruit and citrus, the flavor has a bitter front end but has a smooth fruity and citrus finish, balanced nearly perfectly, very nice.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Draft at Founders. Clearish coppery body, thin to medium clumping beige head. Aromatic nose with spruce needles, berries, twigs, bitter and spicy-floral. Interesting body with spruce needles, berries, brown sugar, and lots of bubblegum, even hints of tobacco. Nice blend of sweet, leafy, and bitter elements. A very nice IPA.

Growler. Thanks ak! Crystal clear dark amber with a big creamy off white head. Huge forward garlic and onion nose, deep with grapefruit as well. Very bitter but refreshing. Summit? Prolly. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty garlicky mid palate with some residual sugar near the end. Appealing and drinkable.

ReggieDunlap (3005) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Growler...Pours a clear copper color with a medium tan head...nice lacing. Aroma has some piney notes and spicy grapefruit...mild roasty maltiness. Flavor has caramely malt and pineyness...just a hint of citrusy grapefruit but not sweet. Mouthfeel is light/medium and smooth with a piney, bitter finish.
