COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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 (8811) - 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 (4299) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-brown color with a large creamy/soapy orange-tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy pine, grapefruit, lemon and faint perfumey and floral hops. The flavor was tang and sweet caramel, pine, perfume, floral hops, pepper and lemon. Long pepper, pine and grapefruit finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2013
Clear red amber, two finger white foam head. Big aroma, pine, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, some malt. Taste is big and crazy. Lemon, lime, pear, vanilla, toasty malt, yeast, big pine bite. Body is rather big, and carbonation light. A little off balance.

dwyerpg (4508) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 28, 2013
This smells fantastic! Quite tasty. Has enought malts that itís actually a bit on the heavy side, yet the flavor is great. I could drink a lot of these. Perhaps the best "Sam Adams" IPA.

SSSteve (3738) - - APR 28, 2013
bottle. a clear bronze beer with a small head. a lot of pine and citrus in aroma. incredibly malty for the style with caramel, toast and even some mild chocolate that provides balance and battles back against what iím sure is an aggressive hop addition. the malts smooth out the palate and it washes down without any biting bitterness in the finish. medium to full bodied. its a different 2ipa for a change, however iíve had beers like this classified under american strongs on this site before.

Bottle Orange, caramel malt, earthy piney hops aroma. Deep amber with a large yellowed ivory head. Metallic, caramel malt, orange peel, charred toast, and earthy piney hops flavor. Full sticky body, soft carbonation.
