Papa Silenus is a man wise enough to advise the Greek wine god Dionysos. Sadly Dionysos never listened, sticking exclusively to wine. Papa Silenus knew better, and eventually embraced the rapture of hops. Papa Silenus is a prophet - you should listen.


Papa Silenus is a double IPA with enormous hop character and a dry finish. The hop blend used in the kettle creates firm bitterness and enormous tropical/citrus notes. Simcoe and Amarillo reappear in the dry hop, along with a heavy-handed dose of Comet to create a deeply resinous aroma and flavor.
