Pours a golden, copper in color with a thick, pillowy layer of foam atop. Lots of lacing as you drink. Carbonation looks strong, but subsides a bit after the pour. This is a really beautiful beer to look at. Aroma is light, bright, floral and fruity with a cloying, sweet malt background and a hint of spice. Inviting. Taste follows the nose quite well; light fruity, floral, zesty, citrus hops with a solid pilsener malt backbone. Finishes crisp and a little dry with grapefruit and orange peel on the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a little bit of chewiness and lively carbonation on the tongue. This is a smooth, tasty, easy drinker which masks it's 7.5% ABV quite well. Very refreshing, another great addition to the Track 7 lineup. Cheers!

10 week old can.

Kind of like that one chick in Destiny’s Child that didn’t make it post Beyoncé - Raul ain’t impressed. Flat like a Ford Model, and I’m sure, tastes as bland as one too.

Pass.

Canned 8/1/18, consumed 8/24/18

Pours clear gold with a nice head that left spotty lacing.

Aroma is bright, full, and dank. Bouquet of hops is an accurate label description - all kinds of fruits, peels, piney, floral, herbal.

Taste follows, not as danky and piney but still delicious.

Feel is medium, great carbonation, very clean and crisp, low bitterness.

Overall, this is really a terrific West Coast style IPA - very bright, flavorful and clean. Track 7 consistently stands out in the crowded NorCal IPA market with some great brews like this one.

Pours a clear golden straw color with white head leaving minimal lacing. Nose is fragrant floral hops with a bit of fruit . Taste mostly follows nose with a hint of malt. Nicely done IPA.

Appearance - Pours clear and golden yellow with a white, finger width head. Decent retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds and a fair ring around the edge of the glass. Not much for lacing; the few large spots that do hang for a bit slide back down into the drink fairly quickly.

Smell - Fragrant, hoppy aroma that hits on notes of orange, tangerine, peach with a touch of passionfruit and spice.

Taste - Follows the nose. Bright citrus hop notes of orange, tangerine and maybe even a hint of lemon, with some peach and passionfruit elements. A touch of black pepper spice creeps in mid-taste and strengthens toward the finish, leaving a slightly spicy, slightly pithy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium in body with moderate carbonation. Super smooth, slightly silky texture with a crisp, mostly dry finish.

Overall - Similar to 'Here Comes the Bloom' but lacks the underlying malt support of the latter and, as a result, tastes incomplete despite the wonderful layers of hop flavor. It's still pretty tasty, but hard for me to be enamored with it. Hop Heads should enjoy it plenty, but I like a bit of malt backbone, in the least. I wouldn't mind drinking this again, but I wouldn't seek it out specifically.

Looks good. Smells wonderful. I get some melon. Well, lots of melon. Honeydew smacks you upside the head and then makes friends with you as it hangs out a while. Good stuff. Thanks to @xicanobeerrun for the growler share.

Straw colored, lacing leaves rings around the glass. Smell is juicy, pungent citrus, dank, grassy, lemon peel. Taste displays a wknderful hop profile. Lingering citrus rind, and grapefruit, mango, fresh cut grass. Mouthfeel is light, and the carbonation is medium to high. Pari with tart cheese-cake, chicken bbq, grilled vehetables.
