Bottle. Poured dark copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus & light malty aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium complex toasted flavor with a medium smooth hoppy citrus finish of moderate duration. Intersting beer.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2008
On tap at Three Floyds. Slightly hazy orange body, medium cream head. Herbal hops nose with light, dusty oak. The body reminded me of an old ale, particularly the combination of sweet, toasty malt, vinous notes, and dusty oak, but the hops bitterness is amped up in this beer, creating a bitter, floral overtone. The sweet, berry-like notes fade into the dry, dusty finish. Very well-done.

Great floral, hoppy nose, Nice mild yet satisfying flavor. I could drink this all night, and be perfecty content. More hops than most english IPA’s I’ve grown accustomed to.......but I like it.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours reddish orange with an impressively large frothy off white head. Intensely peculiar aroma of European yeast and hops. Everything about the appearance and aroma invite you further your exploration of this unique brew. Flavor is fruity hops backed up by deep sweet malts. Extremely smooth finish adds to it’s dangerous drinkability. Not your normal IPA. Definitely gets points for being something different.

Bomber shared by Kmweaver at the shenandoah campout. Thanks Ken! Pours a nice deep amber with a sticky thic off white head. Aroma is really pungent with earbl and tea-like english hops- a bit citrus but mostly just tea and fruity hops- very resinous though and a tacky sticky sweet malt backbone as well. Syrupy sweet malt profile in the front, nice herbal and tea hops, with some light american hop character coming through a bit- nice clean bitterness and just a nice DIPA overall.

22oz bottle, purchased at West Lakeview Liquor in Chicago. Pours dark amber, clear, with a frothy two-finger white head. Aroma of strong hops, citrus, pine, malt, and caramel. Taste is bitter, with some orange/grapefruit flavor, alcohol, and sweet malt. Pretty good, but more hoppy than I would like for an English Pale Ale.

22oz bottle, no date from heemer77, thanks Eric! Hazy dark golden with a one finger creamy off-white head, fading to a thin film before long. Pineapple and grapefruit citrus up front with plenty of biscuit and caramel to back it all up. Flavor is a bit resiny with plenty of fruity hops. Knowing that it’s been touched by oak, I can pick it out (new oak), but if I hadn’t known, I can’t say that I’d be able to pick it out. Dry finish with some warming alcohol and bitterness peaking around a 6. Burps a bit of pine. Creamy full body with some light to moderate prickly carbonation--many adjectives there. Aroma has a good amount more oak closer to room temperature. Definitely a bit different--it gets an extra point or two for that, and as I get further down the bomber, I like this quite a bit.

On tap at brewpub. This was something unexpected and delightful. Slightly hazy amber with a perfectly white head and good lacing. The aroma sets it apart from other IPA’s. Hops, of course, resin and earthy but with a spicy yeast making this very different. Flavor is a short lived sweetness then bitter throughout. Very drinkable and very different. Love it.
