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).

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Orange pour with a white head. Big orange, pine, and herbal hop aromas. Caramel, sugar, and some tea, too. Flavor is sweet caramel up front followed by a strong bitterness. Lots of herbs and pine. Some orange peel, tea, and a bit of a floral note.

HonkeyBra (3247) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2013
22 oz. bottle. A deuce deuce, if you will. Pours a nice bright orange pour with a small white head. Aroma of aromatic pine and spruce, some resin and herbal notes as well. Flavor is very bitter. Strong hop bitterness, focusing mostly on the pine and resin notes. Very soft, mild tea like sweetness. A bit heftier bodied than your typical IPA. Average carbonation, with a long bitter finish. Really nice IPA.

Draft at Steel Toe. From notes. Citrus and earthy floral hops with a solid malt backbone to balance it out. Enjoyable.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
Pour is hazy amber with white head and little lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine malts. Taste is moderatly sweet with nice citrus and piney notes, caramel, long lasting bitterness and astrigent-dry finish. Low-medium body and medium carbonation. A good ipa but nothing impressive.

Jesterdeal (1789) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Sadly, this may have been older than it should have been. Aroma of fruity malts, citrus hops, and slight resin. Pours bronze with a nice medium head. Taste had nice thick citrus notes with apricot and malts. Not to bad but I want to try it fresh next time.

A wonderful surprise. I did not expect much, but found a great IPA. Ready to challenge Surly as best brew in the Twin Cities.

ElGaucho (2189) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Draft at brewery. Bubblegummy hop aroma. Beautiful, hazy amber body with similarly beautiful lace. Really nice sweet hop flavor. Hint of hemp in the nose while sipping. I’m a huge fan.

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2013
22oz bottle shared with Anndiesel. Hazy, unfiltered orange-apricot color. Frothy, steady white head. A pretty classic US IPA, well done, with just a pinch more hop character that throws it over the top. Rather clean for the style, very nice citrus and melon hop tones. Really grew on me as I sipped at it. Subtle hop decadence, remains drinkable, great beer. This beer should be in sixpacks.
