COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A ruddy amber American Strong clocking in at 7.7% abv. Grapefruit and stone fruit hop aroma and character are balanced by a rich red malt backbone. A precise blend of 7 hops go into the brewing and dry hopping process including Nelson Sauvin, Mosaic, Horizon, Palisade, Citra, Willamette, & Columbus. From Flannery O’Connor to Iron Maiden the Seventh Son of a Seventh Son is embedded in American culture as a powerful harbinger of good fortune; what better name for our flagship ale?

*Pairs well with strong flavors found in roasted meats and root vegetables and works well with Double Gloucester or other moderately aged cheeses.

Pours a dark cloudy brown. Very earthy smell that’s medium hops. A nice balanced taste of bitter, sweet and a touch of sour. Light to medium body and a slightly sticky texture.

Pours a ruby amber appearance. Little head. Lacing on the glass. Lots of grapefruit on the nose. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. More grapefruit on the taste. Nice sweet malty finish with the hops lingering in the background. Nice offering from in a can from the local brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Draft at MadTree Birthday Bash. Pours a somewhat cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Nice and hoppy on the aroma - grassy, a little citrusy. Hints of spice and a good dose of caramel and amber malts. The flavor follows the same lines, with some earthiness. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and an earthy, fresh mouthfeel. Could use a little more malt backing, but this worked for me.

DrSilverworm (6279) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Taster on tap at Hopnosis 2013. Mostly hazy amber red color. Minimal white head, no lace. Citrusy, grapefruit american hop nose. Toasty, kind of spicy malt, a lot of caramel malt flavor. Aroma is much better than the taste. Moderate to bigger bitter, light sweet. Medium to bigger body. Lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Solid.

Panzuriel (1295) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2013
I found this beer on tap at The Daily Growler in columbus ohio. Seventh son of a seventh son pours a rich red copper hazy with a fine head of tan foam. Nose is pine needles, green and a bit of an astringent element that reminds me of a pine forest in spring, a little funky, if that makes any sense. Taste is more of the nose, pine forest, herbal green, mild funk, but weaker. it’s almost diluted somehow. after the nose, this flavor is a bit underwhelming. the body is just a touch fizzy. this beer finishes cleanly.

JaBier (4842) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Pint at Bodega after the Crew game on 7/20/13. Clear red pour with a huge beige head. Aroma of malt, blackberry, honey, fruity hops and grapefruit. Malty flavor with tropical fruit and honey character before a bitter grapefruit finish.

Dogbrick (7844) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Sample at the tap room. This beer is a clear dark amber color with a thin light beige head that recedes quickly to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and earthy hops. The finish is mildly bitter with an herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
