Zack Adamsís Magnificent Seven IPA is described as ďa showcase of seven American hop varieties that impart a big piney and lingering resinous flavor. A true Imperial American IPA, this brew pours a rich bronze color. The slightly sweet malt character is pleasantly balanced by a pronounced hop bitterness with grapefruit, pine and earthy notes from the American hops. This medium-bodied IPA also delivers caramel, citrus, lemon and piney aromas.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber with an orange hue in my Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Flavors of caramel malt, tangerine and grapefruit. Spicy, piney hop that leads into a lengthy bitter finish. The tangerine also shows up again after the sip. The body is medium with an oily texture on the tongue. This was a nice job from this homebrew winner. After it was finished I wanted another.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark copper with a one finger dense white head. Spotty lacing. Sharp, hoppy citrus aroma. Citrus flavor with a well balanced malty sweet background. Body is towards the full side with a oily resinous coating on the tongue. Quite good.

12 oz. bottle- Pours a surprisingly dark rusty amber with a nice three finger head with excellent retention and good lace, in the appearance the darker than normal color worries me that there is too much malt, or even worse, caramel malt. The aroma is mellow, not in your face hops like I was hoping for, malt is more prominent which is confirming my suspicions about the appearance. The taste is yeah, confirmed malty, dirty earthy caramel malt, there is a big bitterness here, and it lasts throughout, leaving your mouth bittered up long after the swallow, but that caramel malt ruins it for me. Body is medium and carbonation is fairly high. Why do people put these malts in IPAís, a beer that boasts seven different hops, and the malt is mostly what I take away from this beer! The thing is this is not a bad beer, if it were described as an imperialized hoppy amber ale, I would have more respect for this, I just donít get IPA here.

Butters (4038) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours a clear amber with good persistent light khaki head. Nose of earthy íredí pellet hops. Some might say almost ístinkyí but not quite like weed. Flavor of sweet caramel and pine, grapefruit, lemon citrus acid. Semi resinous lingering oil on the palate. Not really what I crave in an IPA, but not bad. Overall, Iíd say this was the most disappointing Longshot pack Iíve had.

notalush (5708) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Medium amber pour - thick, sticky lace - resinous aroma of pine, grapefruit pith, earth - fairly sweet caramel - low carbonation, medium body - quite sticky sweet in flavor - quite a bit of caramel - the stickiness works somewhat with the resinous character of the hops, I guess - earthy hop flavors of pine, soil - orange oil, grapefruit peel - not terribly complex, and quite sweet, but okay.

MadIndian (2720) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from Canals. Nice long shot brew. Good amount of citrus, pine and caramel malts. The finish is dry, mild spice and dirt. I like it.

Aroma is hoppy citrus and a little earthy. Pours clear copper with an off-white head. Great flavor, the balance of malt and hops works well.

hopdog (11196) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Amber pour with an off white head. I smelled the floral hops as soon as I popped the cap. Toasted floral hops with citrus. Some earthy and caramel in the tastes too.

nuplastikk (5709) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2013
12oz bottle. Filtered amber-copper coilor. Thin, steady off-white/beige head. Respectable piny grapefruit aroma. A pretty decent old school style IIPA, not of resinous hops, and big chewy malts. Kind of earthy, lemony...like Sam Adams just had to get certain flavors in. Hollow, watery body, even though it has a big, sticky flavor. Not bad, but not impressive either.
