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).

cpetrone84 (1372) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
pour is transparent light orange with a tight off white head and big lace. The nose offers a sweet malt base and assertive resinous hop aroma. Sticky orange peel with a touch of musk. The taste is heavily balance with a sticky caramel malt, piney resinous hop, and faint citrus. Strong bitterness in the finish that only lingers for a moment. Highly carbonated, prickly finish and syrupy body. Don’t know how fresh but tastes a touch stale.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2012
Thanks to Bob for the bomber! Poured clear, lighter orange with a creamy off-white head. The aroma picked up pine and wet grapefruit over pale and light biscuity malts.. smelled good. The flavor found bready sweetness at the core with light-moderate pine and grapefruit bitterness around.. lots of residual pine bitterness and some assorted lighter fruits on the long finish. Medium-bodied with moderate bitterness on the palate..spicier as it warmed up.. just an OK flow.. overall a decent brew.

22oz bottle from Atom via Free Beer Week, thanks Adam! Pours a mostly clear, golden colored body with a copper tint. Finger-width, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is really nice with big tropical fruits and florals with a light pine resin and grapefruit. Plenty of mangos and peaches with a light candied orange. Some bready, lightly sweetened caramel malts in the background. Flavor is more citrusy up front with lots of florals, some grapefruits, oranges, and lemons. The tropical fruits come in nicely with some mangos and peaches as well as a light bready caramel behind the hops. A bit of a resiny pine comes on towards the end as the candied orange comes out a big more and the citrus florals get a bit juicy. Finishes dry and fruity with a light-medium, mostly floral bitterness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Light-medium, very smooth body with a moderate, soft, crisp body. Overall, this is a really solid, easy drinking, very flavorful IPA. The hop mix is fairly complex and nicely balanced with big florals, tropical fruits, citruses, and slightly resiny pines. A light bready caramel behind the hops keeps things in check. Consider me impressed; I’m a big fan of this one.

Bottle thanks to portableparty. Seriously.... 2 for 2. Amber in color with white frothy head with mild lacing. Aroma of sweet pine and citrus with some faint malt sweetness. Flavor is solid pine and light citrus bitterness with biscuity, sweet caramel sweetness. Some decent malt backing... Nice residual citrus. Nice, medium presence on the palate with just the right carbonation. I’m impressed with this brewery, thus far.
