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 well kick you where it hurts (in the hop sack).

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

ChiGuy68 (570) - 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

Nuffield (4107) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2013
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.

Bacterial (2931) - 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.

mcberko (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
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.

Tap. Dark gold color, citrus and pine aroma. Nice initial crisp and fresh taste, but falls flat late. Good for an ipa.

MaBeer1972 (1899) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 7, 2013
On tap at the Republic in Minneapolis. Huge floral aromas with this one. Very, very bitter. Sort of a hoppy mess. Decent, but a bit more muddled than I like my IPAs.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Appearance: Amber-orange under a voluminous rocky patchy head which fades in clumps. Full collar of lace. Swirls lovely and thick.
Nose: Pink grapefruit. Mandarin oranges in the back. Wintergreen and Christmas trees.
Palate: Grapefruit and pine trees. Pine sap and grapefruit oils in the middle. Grassy. Key lime grabs my tongue in the back of each swallow and doesnt let go. White grapefruit pith along the sides makes my tongue tingle. Bitter rind in the front of every sip. As it warms up the bitter rind mingles with the key lime in the back.
Final Thoughts: An interesting take on the India Pale Ale style from Steel Toe Brewing. Good flavor and good balance. I really enjoyed it but on the flipside, there really wasnt anything special about it either to make it stand out from other IPAs. Solid but not special.
