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.

Tap. Abv 7.7 %. Deep amber/ oak -hazy small head off-white citrus/grapefruit some caramel medium bitterness and finish Hides the alcohol well and has qualities of some old ales I have had. It is good but seems to be on the brink of being muddled and going completely off one way or the other. It is balanced but just so.

16iz can the poured a medium brown with light tan head. Aroma is mild to medium malt base with some nose of hops. The flavor comes up short for me for the style. Should have more sweet malt than what it does and there should be a nice warm alcohol burn which there isn’t. Not a bad beer but not a strong ale.

From a tall can. Pours coca-cola color, with a nice tan head. Clear dark amber in color. When I opened the can I was hit with a pungent hop aroma. I was expecting similar taste, but it fell a little short. Initial taste is sweet caramel malts, but quickly goes dry, and very faint citrus, grapefruit flavor. One good thing on the taste is I did not detect much, if any, alcohol. I think this could be a really good beer, but it’s just missing some more flavor. On the fence with this one....I see potential I guess.

Growler. Clear copper pour with a 1 finger foamy head that fades to a messy ring and leaves chunky lacing. Aroma has strong grapefruit, caramel, toast, and red fruit. Taste has a nice moderate sweet and bitter balance. Grapefruit peel, toasted malt, rye bread, light flowers, and light caramel. Medium body. Pretty good overall.

Pour out of 16 oz can, hazy dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, caramel, toffee into some spice, touch of red fruit. Taste was a mix of caramel, toffee, sweet orange, grapefruit, hints of bread, finishing fairly bitter. Interesting, decent.
