COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our silver anniversary isnít about gold medals. Itís about 25 years of passion and heart. Silver & Gold IPL represents our past and present, from original brewmaster Thaine Johnsonís Dortmunder Gold recipe and engineer Charlie Priceís vision for our Brewhouse to our ever-growing family of beers. Silver & Gold IPL is for our neighbors whoíve shared pints and stories, for the fans whoíve challenged us to be exceptional from day one, and for us-a bottled reminder of how far weíve come. Brewed with a complex blend of American hops and a mixture of specialty malts, Silver & Gold IPL is bold yet well-balanced, dry yet refreshing. With respect for tradition and a nod to the future, we toast to the next 25 years.

Nice IPL. They dont label it as a pisener but i think that is the the better description as it it is on this site. Somewhat flat with a bit of lacing. Good bitter hop flavors and stickiness on the palate.

hopdog (8952) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of grass, hay, grains, and some citrus. Tastes of grass, some bread, and citrus. A lighter honey sweetness in the finish.

10 oz into a tulip at Capital Ale House in Fredericksburg, VA. From notes. A: Pours a clear copper color. While there isnít much head at all - only a half finger of off-white colored head, if that - it tries its damnedest to retain itself well. Surprisingly plentiful lacing is left down the glass. S: Not much here, sadly. Some grassy hops, a touch of fruitiness, and maybe some caramel malts. Devoid of flaws, but unimpressive. T: This starts off with a huge wave of grassy, spicy hop bitterness. Afterwards, it transitions into an almost fruit punch-like sweetness. A slight hop bite returns to dry the finish up somewhat. Iím really loving the fruitiness (seemingly typical of their lagers), a shame itís overly bitter at times. M: Itís about 5% heavier than I like my lagers, but like I said, dries out on the finish quite nicely. Carbonation is medium-high. O: If it werenít so bitter, it might be among the better lagers Iíve ever had. As it stands, itís still a good hoppy lager, but bring your bitter tooth.

estover (55) - Valencia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Not as hoppy as you would think but it is malty. Thick mouthfeel and long lasting finish. Clear color and a nice 2 finger head that laced its way down the glass.

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Deep golden, brilliant pour with 1.5 inch creamy, off-white head. The initial nose suggests citrus, malt, and biscuits. Rich palate with medium-full body and extended hop and malt notes. Floral hops and a slight hint of soapiness. Modest carbonation. The head has settled to 1/8 inch, leaving beautiful Belgian lace. Well balanced malt and hops on the palate - some spiciness. The ABV is not noticeable. Fresh.

milewide (1515) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Fine malts gives this beer a slightly sweet flavor and rich mouth feel. Hops are more average. Clear amber color with modest head.

pineypower (2516) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle from Roger Wilco. Pours out a nice clear orangy/golden color with a white head. Aroma is of wet grass, honey, over-ripe fruit and wet bread. Taste is sweet, bready malts, floral/grassy hops, honey, light sweetness and a touch of alcohol on the finish.

chalicemaster (109) - Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Ehhh...this doesnít work. The distinct lack of hop bitterness really impacts the flavors, and whatís left is a slightly odd smelling and tasting ale that is an interesting idea, but fails in execution. Truthfully, it reveals its fruity nature as you drink more, but itís a confusing blend of styles that isnít worth the money.

Hopsclation (89) - Chicago, - SEP 10, 2013
This stuff surprised me. I was expected something really dry and grassy, but it has a nice juicy ipa feel to it. The abv comes through, but in a good way i think, it gives a full body. Strawberry, hay, peach, pine and grapefruit with a really pleasant bite at the end. I would buy a lot of this if it were cheaper, its good but not 4 dollars a bottle good...
