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).

AWISLguy (1341) - 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 (292) - 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 (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, 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 (145) - 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 (2244) - 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 (353) - 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.

Ericular (659) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Nice pine aroma. Taste is hop-forward pine resin, a nice dry bitterness in the middle with slight malt balance in the end. Super smooth palate. Not bad at all!

Huhzubendah (2618) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2014
The beer is golden and transparent, with ample effervescence and an inch of white head that leaves a sheet if lacing in its wake. The aroma brings candied citrus, resinous hops. Juicy with a bold hop character. Palate coating with some pine resin stickiness. Pretty good.
