Draft. Nice deep coppery ruddy brown. Nice citrusy aroma. Big malty sweet mouth and maybe hints of pears and carmel. Decent and appropriate bitter bite to finish. Some peppery alcohol warming. Body is nice and not thin. Well done.

Bottle #4135 Provided by rajendra. Thanks Raj! Pours a lightly hazy deep copper. Huge, dense, deep ivory head. Intense lacing, big and chunky. Aroma is lots of citrusy bitterness. A strong biting grapefruit smell wafting up from the foam. Taste is HOPS. Lots of big, citrusy hops. However, the big fruity maltiness cuts through from time to time to remind you this beer is 10% ABV. A slight rough alcohol burn that fades as you make your way through the glass. Long hoppy burn as it goes down the gullet. Mouth is surprisingly creamy and smooth for such an assertive beer. Bitter citrus aftertaste, like orange rind. Full bodied and bold. Oh so tasty. In the words of RCM, "Good God Almighty! Yes indeed!"

Heavy, sweet, resinous, fruity (pineapple, grapefruit) nose; slick, sticky and sweet malt front end with flavor to match; some pine, wood, and toffee notes; not a huge, but a substantial bitterness on the finish to go with the huge hop aromas and flavors; pretty balanced, complex and tasty

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Pours a rusty amber with a large creamy head that sticks around. Aroma is big piney and citrusy hops with a strong sticky sweet malt. Flavor is a mix of hard caramel and piney and citrusy hops. There is also a little smokeyness that I think comes from the deep caramel and bitterness mixing. Interesting with the deep hard caramel backing and very good but it just doesnt beg me to drink it as much as some other IIPAs and American Strongs.

orange to red in color, 2" 0ff white head, smells of sweet spice, taste is sweet with a little alc bite on the end, med-heavy body, not enough carbonation, nothing to back up the sweetness, might be good with some waffles.

dark color, big head. nice pine aroma, not as overpowing as some brews. i found the flavoe disappointing (perhaps because it is a bit medicinal). however, i could get used to it. a good entry.

Silphiums hiccup-inspiring offering at a tasting that I hosted last year. Really cool bottle, but, overall, a quite bland Double Pale Ale. The high alcohol was present throughout, actually covering some of the hoppiness that i was craving from it. Malts were caramelly with tingly alcohol. Some pininess and sappiness snuck through but would have been incredible to taste more.

This is a pretty big brew. I found I smelled the alcohol more than I actually tasted it. I was expecting more malt flavor, but this is still pretty tasty.

Cloudy appearance, copper color with a slight orange hue, generous & soft off-white head, nice lacing around the glass, nose well-balanced with both hoppiness & maltiness in the aroma, notes of pine & earth, full-bodied, smooth & drinkable, very well-balanced body of flavors as well, lots of bitter hoppiness, dry & sticky, excellent malt profile to back it all up, dry & bitter finish with more notes of hops & malt, very good pale ale
