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.

Poured a deep slightly red copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with resin and citrus notes. Some biscuit and malts in the aroma as well. Taste is very well balanced with good hoppy citrus flavors. A touch of clove and grass too. Nice malty backbone with some cereal flavors. Very good.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a slightly hazy, deep copper color with a thin tan head. The nose is a delightful mix of dank, citrus, and piney hops. The flavor highlights the hops the whole way starting with citrus notes, moving to herbal and finishing with resinous pine. Medium to full bodied with lower carbonation and a long, bitter finish. A very solid offering.

Bottle poured clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, grapefruit, pine and light orange zest. Palate was medium boded and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, pine, earthiness and grapefruit zest with a crisp dry lingering bitter pine finish.

Strong resin hop aroma. Clear orange color with a small white head. Mild bitter beginning that quickly builds a strong resin hop bitterness in the middle and fades a little in the finish.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Pours amber with beige head. Aroma is a brilliant floral and over ripe grapefruit hoppiness with caramel in the shadow. Flavor matches aroma, is aggressive and balanced, strong hop and malt, solid bitterness throughout. Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, good stuff!

Well done. Would have loved a small bit more sweetness in this as it is seriously bitter. Mouthfeel was nice and the flavors are strong enough to linger for quite a while. Nose was slightly sour. Overall excellent, though, and one that is worth trying.

nice aroma of caramel, citrus. The appearance is orange, white head. The flavor is citrus, flower, caramel, the hops are more assertive in the flavor than the aroma. The finish is mashed-up pine, citrus, flowers, and explosion of hops. Nicely done.

Magnificent Seven is so named because of the seven hops varieties used. Darker than most IPAs, itís a crisp, clear amber. Hops completely dominate the aroma, as they should. Very nice blend of flavor from the hops, too. Pine, grapefruit, some grassy notes. Roasted caramel comes through, too. Great contest, great beer.

Bottled. Red orange in appearance with a tremendous light tan head that is very creamy and very long-lasting. Pine and grapefruit nose was very evident upon first poor. Upon further sniffs I can get a hint of leather, sweet cookie malts, caramel, very light smoke and light prairie grasses. Bitter, resinous flavor with loads of toffee atop grapefruit, apricot and pine. There is a nice malt backbone beneath this IPA - it almost drinks like a young barley wine. Solid. Wish I knew what seven hops they used.
