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.

ellolovey (447) - Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color with a thin cream colored head. Sticky lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, pine, citrus, and earth. Very earthy taste, dirt and leaves. Has a nice sweet caramel malt base balanced with pine and citrus hops. Some definite funk going on. Has some odd flavors. Very dry. Just not digging it.

Ed5388 (1977) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a deep clear copper color with a finger of creamy off white head. Aroma is slightly boozy, with notes of caramel, and sweet citrus. Taste of toasted bread, and caramel malt. Notes of citrus, apricot, and pine. I'm liking the flavor way more then the aroma. Decent DIPA.

ICEatALAMO (913) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. The pour is a murky dark orange/brown. The aroma is all hops. The taste is a refreshing hoppy feel. A very good blend of hops. Big hop taste, but very clean and smooth, finishes nice, not too much bitterness.

scarletfire65 (918) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle on the balcony. The aroma is pine, brown sugar, malt. Smells sweet. Over the top malty sweetness underneath, but very bitter on top, yields a nicely balanced beer. Nuances of sweet dough, resin, mellow citrus.

ADesenberg (561) - Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle: Amber-Brown color with a big, frothy light tan head. Aroma: floral, resin, grapefruit.... Smells wonderful. Taste is not as bitter as I thought it would be... Nice. Itís got a citrusy lemon thing going on too... Nicely balanced.

gripweed57 (608) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Nice copper colored liquid topped by a small creamy beige head. Lovely clinging Belgian lace. Toasted malt nose quickly yields to the aggressive hop bombardment that awaits. Notes of pine and citrus are foremost here. Burnt caramel malt mixes with the resiny hops to offer a nicely balanced ale with moderate body and depth. Buttery and chewy mouthfeel leads to a spicy dry hop finish that is long and tasty. An outstanding DIPA.

b3shine (5195) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; very malty though. A somewhat hazy amberish brown with off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; bitter, pine, and citrus hops with a malty backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A pleasantly well-balanced beer.

AxlLives (286) - Maryland, USA - JUN 26, 2013
12 oz bottle - pours dark red caramel, slight white head, diminishing. Easy lacing. Aroma of grain, biscuit, malt, and oranges. Round and decent. Malty. Full bodied with long finish. Pretty good if not my type.

Heavy pine and caramel nose. Fully sweet, boozy sticky palate. Quite a bit of bite (read not real smooth) in the palate. Still, as it is flavorful and substantial, I enjoyed it. Not up the being named after a great Clash song however.
