This American Pale Ale has hints of citrusy hops with a crisp, peppery finish derived from Grains of Paradise, a spice from Western Africa. Wild gorillas consume this rare spice found in their native habitat. Enjoy Silveback and help protect the highly endangered Mountain Gorilla.

Pours cloudy copper with a thick beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with lots of citrus and a spicy finish.

Can from Davidson’s Liquor. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much on the nose. A bit of citrus on the tongue. Finishes clean but its really, really boring.

thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Pours a mid-copper with a light white head. Aroma is bitter and floral. Flavor is primarily hoppy. Definitely on the floral end with a backbone of lemon. Decent but nothing special. The hops are a little too bitey in this one with not enough sweetness to balance it out.

floydslip (344) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Amber colored beer with a medium foamy white head. Somewhat musky nose with a hint of citrus and spice. Flavor is crisp up front with a light sweetness that develops into a a refreshing bitterness. This grows slightly before ending with a little burst of spice. The flavors are not overly complex or interesting, but the progression of flavors is well developed. This is a beer I would drink again.
