COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zack Adams’s Magnificent Seven IPA is described as “a 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.

Pours a very clean deep-amber color with a low carbonation rate and a very, creamy, dense, white head. Aroma has a lot of Zeus-like flavors, strong pine, grass, grapefruit and light lemon with a touch of sweet malt a the very end. Flavor starts off with a strong grapefruit, moves into bitter pine note and finishes with a slight, non-obtrusive sweetness and light grassy/earthy notes. Body is perfect - low/mod carbonation to deliver the hops, light oily feeling the compliments the strong hops and a touch of dryness at the very end. Overall a pretty good brew. I like that the hops comes to front without have a huge amount of sweetness to hold it up. NIcely done.

12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice pungent hop aroma with a nice grapefruit scent within. Appearance is an amber hue with a thick white head that lingers. Taste has got a thick texture to it, hops are at the forefront, but there is some malts in the backend. Sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation and an aftertaste of lingering resiny hops. Overall, Decent IPA. I liked it. Cheers!

Transfer from BA review on 7-29-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a beautiful orange-amber color with a rocky and thick just off-white head. The head has some amazing staying power, very slowly fading over time to leave a great level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is a very nice blend of sweet and hoppy. The base of the sweet is a caramel nature but there are also tropical fruit smells with tangerine, mango, and pineapple. The hop is heaviest in aroma of a grapefruit smell, but other aromas of a pine and earthy nature are mixed in there as well, overall creating a sweet and nicely blended hop smell. Taste – The taste begins bready with a moderate presence of a caramel sweetness. Upfront there is also a light grapefruit hop as well as a rather decent showing of a pine hop flavor. While the aroma was of tropical fruits there was very little of these in the flavor. As the taste advances the grapefruit hop and caramel dwindles some with the pine growing stronger and being joined by a big earthy hop taste. In the end, with the sweeter flavors lessening up and the earthy getting rather strong, one is left with a bitter and earthy/pine hop blend flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly creamier side with a carbonation level that consisted of tons of tiny and prickly carbonation bubbles. The carbonation is great in light of the earthy and pine hops adding a nice tingling taste to the heavier tastes of the hops. Overall – A slightly more earthy and piney IPA/double IPA with a good dose of bitternes. A good go to when looking for a IPA that is less citrusy and a bit heavier in other hop flavors.

"Really impressed with this one, especially at this low price point. Dark and dank, citrusy and spicy. Very complex aroma and flavor. Malty, but more than adequately hoppy and aromatic, with a pretty nice sticky body. Looking forward to a couple more of these."

swanmann (629) - 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. It’s yummy, my description and rating reflects that I found this single out of date by a couple months.

RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2013
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40°. 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.
