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).

tennisjoel (1154) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Clear effervescent amber in color with a small lasting off white head. Adaquate lacing. Aromas of pine needles and citrus. Nothing extraordinary in an IPA, but very solid nonetheless.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2014
22oz bomber courtesy of TheHOFF43 pours with a crystal clear copper body that supports a thin nearly creamy tan head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma offers up some sweetness, some cantaloupe and then a mix of mango and a sliver of citrus mango hard candy. The taste starts with pulsing pleasing hoppy goodness with a mix of mango, grapefruit and then modest spicy hoppiness. The hops have lots of both flavor hop notes and firm hop bitterness and to midway the spicy slightly onion like hops gain a resiny bitter hop facet to them. Nice. I’m really enjoying the balance and depth of the hops and the modest malty sweet backbone.

Prufrockstar (691) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Bomber, thanks to Bacterial. Pours a beautiful crystal clear copper with white head. Aroma: pine dominates, with some backup citrus, balanced by bread and toast. Taste: spicy, piny hops with toasty, dry bitter finish. As it warms, caramel expresses itself, alcohol becomes more assertive, and a metallic note as well. Medium body, nice carbonation, slick texture. Overall: solid ipa with big bitter bite.
