COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While the size of the boot might be a bit small, the intensity of the hop flavor and aroma in Size 7 more than makes up for it. We take prodigious amounts of hops and add them any chance we get to this Northwest style IPA. If you ever call Size 7 balanced we’ll kick you where it hurts (in the hop sack).

Bomber. Chewy orange fruit nose. Flavor is much stickier though with lots of pine and resin. Finish is pretty sweet with pine and resin again. Pretty aggressive.

jackl (4980) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Keg @ Happy Gnome. Light amber pour with a modest white head. Slightly hot caramel and tropical fruit salad. This ain’t no session IPA. Citrus, honey. Some booziness. Taste is pretty well balanced. Chewy caramel malt, slight booze. Strong pine and tropical melon fruits. Singed grass bitterness. Medium body, soft carb. Solid.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter glass darkest amber orange with a 2 inch white head. Aroma is grassy straw. Flavor was at first rather mild for an exclaimed bold IPA. As it warmed the strength increased with a lemony grass bang. Finish is bitter with more than expected sweetness. Carbonated very well with a medium body to the tongue. Won’t go out of my way to purchase again but if offered to consume at a bottle share---yes.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bomber from Surdyks, brought by and shared with Eric. Very exciting! Pours a clear, golden orange with an off-white head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma has pine, citrus and biscuity malts. Taste is of sweet fruit, some pine and citrus with some resin and sweet malts. Medium-bodied with little alcohol presence. Finishes more sweet than bitter, but fairly balanced. Solid and tasty. 13.8

Maltser85 (313) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Amber gold pour with a white head. Well carbonated. Aroma of pine with slight citrus and sweet malts. Taste is more of the same. Nice bitterness. Finish slightly lingers otherwise it is clean. Medium light body that fits well.

Grapefruit and citrus hop forward with apricots and good caramel maltiness. Flavorful IPA, quite good!

Braudog (5902) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Label this a "standard" American IPA. The aroma is a bit caged. The beer drinks with a decent malt backbone and a fairly normal balance. Clean, well made, but a tad uninteresting, yet still good, IMHO. (#5656, 8/28/2014)

Lectvay (157) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a lovely bright golden, very fresh pine aroma. Pleasantly bitter, slight citrus acidity. Hops are the main event, but it’s not in-your-face intense. The bitterness is well-rounded and balanced. Very good IPA.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Pours a orange golden color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is a bit of sweet cotton candy, citrus and some underlying pineapple and hints of caramel malt. The palate follows the nose and has some nice juicy hop character, pine, candied orange, pineapple, grass. The overall mouthfeel is a touch on the sticky side with a residual sweetness that does balance out the heavy bitterness late in the palate just wish it was a touch drier on the finish.

commonmac (412) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Tap at the Steel Toe tap room. Gold in color and a visually appealing lacing. Aroma leans on the pine expected from an IPA. Taste follows suit with an aggressive, yet palatable bitterness. Refreshing and satisfying. The shoe fits.
