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).

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

This is one tasty IPA. It has the dank citrus and pine aroma from the cascade and centennial hops. Nice hop bitterness in the finish. 7% abv just right to match the bitterness. Overall one of the greatest beers in all of the Midwest.

I really love this beer. The aroma is a nice hoppy sweet smell. Very hop forward, good blend of citrus and sweet. A very rock solid ipa.

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.

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

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 Hop heavy in taste and aroma. Notes of grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Nice and deep gold. Palate is full but not overwhelming. Overall, when you get it 3 days old on growler you can really beat it! Best IPA ever!

Tap at Happy Gnome St Paul. One delicious IPA. Pours a hazy golden orange. Nose is pine and some floral. Taste is also lots of pine, floral, and some grapefruit. Nice dry finish.

Beautiful west coast IPA. Tons of floral citrus hops in the nose balanced by a wonderful biting hop flavor and bitterness.

ChiGuy68 (394) - 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

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - 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.
