Pours orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Slightly sweeter IPA maybe because of the pineapple.

On tap. Bright orange color, no cloudiness, a little head. Not as big of an aroma as expected. A little pineapple and citrus. Taste some pineapple but not as much as I expected given the name. Still, is was pretty refreshing and not too bitter. Ok overall.

On tap at HopCat, Grand Rapids, MI. Not a fan of this one. Deep amber and clear, thats nice. Sweet pineapple aroma, thats nice. Then the taste really lets you down. Seems like the pineapple is replacing the hops in this one, rather than complimenting them. Tastes weak and watery, and has a weird aftertaste my wife and I just couldnt put our fingers on (maybe it was stale hops?). No bitterness at all. A disappointment.

Silphium (3193) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Draft at HopCat, Grand Rapids. Slightly hazy medium orange-brown body, thin creamy off-white head. Light nose with pineapple and citrus. Light, hoppy body, mostly citrusy, bitter hops with modest pineapple. Lingering bitter finish with a long citrus rind aftertaste. The pineapple was a nice touch to a basic IPA.

paintedmaple (671) - Peoples Republic of Bloomington, Indiana, USA - DEC 10, 2011
On tap at the Clarkston Union...a nice spin on the usual citrus of an IPA. I would say that this was on the sweeter and less hoppy side for an IPA, but I enjoyed it and will seek out more.

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2011
On tap at The Shark Club. Poured a hazy golden color with a small sized head. More pineapple in the aromas than the tastes, but not much there. Citrus and rinds. Sweeter than bitter.

Tmoney99 (13908) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Draft sample. Poured clear orange copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy fruit and sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to my dad for bringing this one down for me to try. Served in a wine glass. Pours an apricot-gold color with a good white head and some nice lacing as it goes down. The nose brings forward some nice citrus hops plus a bit of a floral component. Nice pineapple in the background. Not too much malt to speak of. Flavor is light pineapple plus some orange and citrus. Medium body with good carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Very good brew.

On tap at the Odd Side brewpub. Light peach colored with a thin off-wihie head. Aroma of pineapple, citrus and sweet malt. Taste is sharp, strong and bitter with some pineapple and undefined hops. Citrus and sweet malt are also in there.
