COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
7×70 IPA clocks in at 7% ABV and 70 IBUs (hence the name) and starts with a citric burst from the Amarillo, El Dorado, and Citra hops in the boil. A lean malt bill that lets the hops really shine through with only 2-row and a touch of lightly toasted pale malt. The dry hop features a second boost of tropical citrus from Calypso hops, as well as a slap of pine from the Simcoes.

On tap at Drakes. It pours a clear light golden color with a white head. The aroma is very intense with grass, dank, citrus and a little mango/pineapple. The flavor is the same. Nice hop complexity with notes of dank, grass, spice and some more fruitiness to balance. It finishes solidly bitter and dry. The body is perfect with very little malt to speak of. Maybe a hint of grain. Otherwise, this is a perfectly executed hop bomb. One of the best from Drakes in a while.

Sampled at the oregon brewers fest in Portland oregon, USA. This was a gross diacetyl bomb, thanks for sending a ruined, terrible beer 400 miles!

Tap at 2014 OBF. Pours light gold with a white head. Huge citrus rind aroma. Flavor is citrus, but it seems dank. ? Very hoppy, but not too bitter. Xpt for rind. A little malt backbone. Very tasty.

skmikeg (900) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a light orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and light dank hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some nice grapefruit and tropical fruit notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium long finish. Overall, a tasty IPA.

marcus (6501) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 28, 2014
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours clear golden with a rich off-white head and an earthy hop aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with an interesting hop profile - fruity, earthy and citrus

callmemickey (2783) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2014
Clear golden body with a medium sized white head and soapy lacing. Straightforward grapefruit and pine notes. Classic west coast IPA with minimalalt presence, a medium body and a dry finish with assertive bitterness.
