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.

J_man (888) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Caramel and wood aromas with a slight vegetal note. Clear copper/amber color with a thin but lasting off-white head. Strong, sweet caramel malt flavor with a slight cooked vegetable taste in the back as well as some smoke. Thereís earthy bitterness here, but itís a bit heavy handed and ends up being more of the vegetal flavor that almost gets overpowering. Lays down a dry bitterness on the tongue thatís nice, but the vegetal stays around too. Not bad, but the hops need to be a bit brighter. *** Wow, reading the other ratings makes me think I got a bad bottle. Hopefully I can find another to try! ***

RRRozie (22) - Cortland, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2013
12oz Bottle. Medium head; fine lacing. Surprisingly mild, faintly piney aroma. Color and taste is exactly as described: "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." A lingering bitterness is the price exacted for the complexity of flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (4737) - Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Pours a beautiful clear chestnut with a rather thick and frothy pale tan head. Aroma is strong and seriously hoppy, with resin and grapefruit underpinnings, promising a first-class IPA. Aroma is - HOLY MOLEY, this one will get your palateís attention! Hoppy note bold as a pit bull, quite bitter; a dump truck full of grapefruit, and an alcohol bite like a tiger shark add up to HEY BOSTON BREWING HIRE ZACK ADAMS RIGHT AWAY!!! Texture is firm, smooth, and rather fizzy, leaving a woody and fruity finish. Magnificent indeed!

lamas (1532) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle. Enjoy before: 09/13. A clear rusty pour with a thick antique white head that leaves rings of lacing behind. The aroma features lots of pine, grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, caramel, rye, and a little orange/lemon juice. Goes down medium to full-bodied and fairly smooth. The taste starts with quite a bit of toffee, caramel, and a rich freshly-baked bready maltiness. Chewy. A touch of creamy vanilla in the middle. Grapefruits and zesty citrus rinds are present at the end. The finish is very dry and lingers for quite a while. Resiny. A fair amount of warming alcohol is present throughout.

SDalkoholic (2318) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle from Sproutís: Poured a medium orangish colored amber hue topped with a growing thick foam head. Aroma is balanced well between a variety of hops and some big caramel like malts but does have somewhat of a pungent whiff. The drink is also balanced in the ingredients as well with a chewy backing of sweet malt and bitter hop pellets that actually remind me of a hopped up barelywine. I canít remember but this might be the first Imperial IPA I have tasted from Sam Adams. Clearly the winner from this yearís Longshot series
