Our silver anniversary isnt about gold medals. Its about 25 years of passion and heart. Silver & Gold IPL represents our past and present, from original brewmaster Thaine Johnsons Dortmunder Gold recipe and engineer Charlie Prices vision for our Brewhouse to our ever-growing family of beers. Silver & Gold IPL is for our neighbors whove shared pints and stories, for the fans whove challenged us to be exceptional from day one, and for us-a bottled reminder of how far weve 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.

pineypower (3259) - Ocean County, 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.

Ehhh...this doesnt work. The distinct lack of hop bitterness really impacts the flavors, and whats 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 its a confusing blend of styles that isnt worth the money.

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...

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, biscuity malts, floral hops which come off a bit soapy, grass and a splash of citrus. Dry finish with some herbal character. I just dont really get the style.

jsquire (4393) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Clear light amber color with a lasting foamy white head. The nose has some grassy hops and baked bean notes. Lots of alcohol notes, some hop resin and home made bread. The finish has an odd nail polish remover sense to it. Turns out Im not a fan of Imperial Pils.

LilBeerDoctor (3884) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of pale malts, floral hops, soapy perfume, bready malt, light sweetness. Flavor of sweet bready malt, light fruits, alcohol, with bitterness in the finish. A bit strong, not terribly flavorful. The hops seem to have left this one. Not terribly enjoyable. 5/4/5/3/9 (2.6/5)

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle. Translucent, slightly hazy straw-orange body, thin clumping off-white head. Cerealy nose with sharper tart honey and burnt sugar notes. Cerealy, bread dough body with plump sweet yeast and grassy, leafy, biting hops that deliver hints of tobacco leaf and bubblegum. Potent with a lot of prickly sugars and alcohol notes, reminiscent in that sense of Nosferatu. Enjoyable but I wouldnt want to drink more than a couple of these in one sitting.

ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle, enjoy by 8/31/13, so should be fine. Nose is dusty and very pleasantly hoppy with waves of caramel/toffee. Doughy-spicy pleasure! Pours orange-leaning golden with a very creamy, layered off- white head that laces. Taste is lagery, a little thin (medium body at most), golden malt and citrus in the style of a Heller Bock, white grape and a hint of pepper, gentle orange rind. Hops are still very bright, some American character but definitely reminds of a blend of nobles. I hate the move toward imperializing lagers, but this ones handled competently; still, too much alcohol, even if theres no heat.
