If you tried Size 7 at some point and decided it was all a bit hyped and not that amazing, make it out to Steel Toe and try it again. This is beautifully balanced IPAs at its best, just like almost anything Jason Schoneman does.

This beer pours a clear ruby-bronze color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into a nice cap of foam that sticks around awhile. The aroma is very strong. Passion fruit, mandarin oranges, flowers, and pine resin. Everything I would want to find in the aroma of an IPA. The taste is similar to the aroma in that it is a nice balance of citrus, floral, and herbal hops. The bitterness isn't strong during the sip, but makes itself noticed in an abrasive manner in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a silky texture. Overall, this is one of the best IPAs I've ever tasted. It straddles the boarder between IPA and DIPA in that in has the body of an IPA and the impact of a DIPA. I can see this becoming a regular in my refrigerator. I only wish it were available in six-pack form.

a very clear crisp gold pour with two fingers of foamy white head and great mounts of lacing. smells of hops galore! hints of honey, grapefruit, garlic, earth aromas... this smells like brewday (which it is). an initial earthy bitterness followed by a sweet grassy hoppy outburst on the palate. this beer is outstanding.. orangey grapefruit citrus notes, piney bitterness, fresh cut flower taste.. this has every single aspect of a hop one can hope for.. with a sweet backbone of caramel or honey. a medium bodied ipa with a nice creaminess to it - definitely a heavy one.

overall: this is the best BOTTLED ipa i have ever tasted. the smell is great, the appearance is immaculate.. and the mouthfeel is perfect. why is nobody circle jerking this one yet??
