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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a beautiful chestnut red color. I love the clarity of the body, in particular. The head is great too, a two finger cream shade that retains itself very well, and leaves attractive lacing on the glass. Really a good looking brew. S: I notice subtle touches of floral hops, piny notes, and *faint* grapefruit (and I do mean faint), backed - or should I say, overpowered by a sweet caramel malt base. While aromatically decent, I could really use more hops here. T: Iíd reckon this is closer to an imperial amber than a DIPA. The flavor starts out with some mild caramel and toffee, before finishing with touches of earthy, piney, and floral qualities. I really like the balance here, I must say. M: The body has good crispness and a well-balanced dry finish, which helps keep any excessive sweetness in check. Itís also decently well-built in terms of thickness, neither too heavy nor light. O: I can really tell the brewer of this was inspired more by Nugget Nectar than Ruination; thereís a degree of elegance here missing in so many examples of the style. Having said that, it isnít as explosively bold as some of the best DIPAs are, nor does it compare with NN in overall quality. This oneís so close to being great, yet itís missing a bit of additional hoppiness to make that possible. Iím still mildly impressed either way.

swanmann (599) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle best by Sep 2013 - Dark rich amber orange, clear, with nice tan-ish head, settling slowly with nice lace. Immediate pine, grapefruit aroma faded quickly, some caramel and leathery funk. Some big bitterness up front in the flavor, definite caramel and semi-dry with slight metallic twang in the finish. Itís yummy, my description and rating reflects that I found this single out of date by a couple months.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2013
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40į. Color is a bright golden brown with mellow carbonation and a nice rocky off white head. Aroma is sweet malt then spice floral hops on the back. It has a medium body with a creamy and slightly rich mouth feel. Flavor comes in malty giving nice toffee notes then the hops show with just a touch of pine and a spicy, peppery citrus. In the after taste the pepper hangs on with a mild bitterness. Overall its a very good IPA, but I feel it should be a little bigger as an Imperial.

Good solid example of the style. Nice piney aroma with a hint of citrus. Nice bronze color with a solid white head. Crisp and full palate with complimenting carbonation. Great mix of hops flavors with a burst of bitterness at the beginning that eventually mellows out near the end of the bottle. Malt background is solid but doesnít have the sweetness as advertised. Enjoyed it.
