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.

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.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. The label lists the abv at 7.5% and there is a short description of the beer. Appearance: It has a golden honey amber color with a slight haze. This is with a small creamy off white head. The head has good retention as a keeps a thin lacy covering all the way to the finish. Smell: The aroma is mostly about its hops. There are earthy notes as well as piney and leafy hop notes with a touch of pineapple like notes as well. Taste / Palate: The taste is the same with a smooth feel and mild bitterness in the finish.

[Tap] Pours a bright golden color with a rocky white head to it. Grapefruit/hoppy nose. Grainy malts, grass and lighter bready caramel flavors. Average body, but the higher ABV is well diguised even though the beer is on the lighter side. Tasting notes from 1/2014.

Really interesting beer. It tastes like a Dortmunder Gold mixed with their Commodore Perry IPA. I love both those beers, but I like my lager to taste like a lager and my IPA to taste like an IPA. That being said, this is an exceptionally made beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, biscuit, bread, hints of spice, yeast, slight floral notes into a bit of orange. Taste is a mix of caramel, biscuit, bread, hints of earth, spice, grass, slight floral notes, finishing fairly bitter, dry.

Big thanks to my friend AT for this brew. Looks like a hefty lager fer sure, even a little viscous. Dull volatile thud greets the olfactory. This stuff is just as worse as a double ipa from the first taste. IPA WTF. Now IPA is infiltrating lager territory, happy bullshit. Imperial IPA fer sure this is. This is an insult to the lager lover. WEW. Oily alky happy mouthcoating bullshit. If you want an IPA double, drink it, why make lagers that taste like IPA?

Clear amber with a very large head. Aroma is skunked and hoppily noble with some funk and pale malts. Taste is noble and boring with pale malts, a touch of skunk and a mild bitter finish. Lipstick on a pigÖ

Copper colored with a foamy white head. Smells of sweet honey and has a bitter/hoppy grapefruit flavor.

Enjoyed on tap at Wild Monk. Served in a shaker pint. A: Pours a solid orange color with a thick white head forming on the pour. It leaves heavy coatings of lace down the glass. S: Light lager yeast profile with wheat sweetness to it. Orange citrus with a little lemon action going on as well. T: Slightly bitter with a lot of deep citrus notes. Sweet cereal grains with a twist of noble hops thrown in on the finish. Slightly yeasty. M: Super light with a hint of sweetness. Really drinkable with a medium carbonation level. O: Superbly drinkable and really flavorful. Definitely enjoyed the balance of this one.

Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma is little bit of citrus hops and pilsner malts. Lots of big pilsner malt flavors, corn, lots of corn flavor. Little bit of pine hops. Not bad but a little cumbersome for a pilsner and the malts lean to heavy on the corn taste.

Citrus pine hops on the nose...hints of sweet bread and malt also. Nice clear amber color with thick white head that holds well. Sweet up front, then bitterness creeps in slowly but finishes strong. More lager like in appearance than taste or mouth feel. Bitterness is strong and aftertaste lingers quite a while...dry. Reminiscent of the bitterness found in the Burning River pale which was a bit over powering.
