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).

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.

(22oz bomber) clear gold, sparse white bubbles. Nose is hugely dank, oniony, some citrus in there too. Taste of grapefruit peel, bitter oils, too bitter and some floral esters here.

The best IPA I have had anywhere. The citrus-like aroma is subtle, but it pleasantly adds to the flavor.

Had it out of a 22oz bottle. Pours a clear amber hue with a medium head and uneven lacing. HOPS!! Strong hop aroma and taste!!

On tap at Steel Toe. Pours a golden color with white head. Hoppy, earthy, citrusy flavors. Nice IPA.

ChiGuy68 (407) - Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Tasted from a 22oz bomber. Orangish amber color with a light orange to white head and solid lacing. More than enough hops for both nostrils and taste buds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Has a light pine and citrus in ths aroma but the flavor is more murky, more vegetal. I find the finish a little difficult to take, as it is both a bit bitter and soapy. Not to my liking. Bottle.

Draft, thanks daniwerks. Crystal clear amber body with small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine, some grapefruit, light orange. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, bread, some orange, pine. Resinous medium body.

Bacterial (1520) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Clear amber pour, white head and lots of white lacing. Big citrus in the nose. Big hops and citrus continue in the taste with some nice malt sweetness underlying. Straight yum.

22 oz. bottle, seen from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Nose is quite subtle, full of piney hops and some floral notes. Flavour brings out loads of pine cones, floral hops, a little grapefruit rind and a thin crackery malt backbone. Very hop forward, with a highly astringent finish. Dry palate, dominated by shitloads of pine. Despite the high astringency, this is a pleasure to drink. Great stuff.
