BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Track 7 Brewing Co.
California, United States
track7brewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Track 7 Brewing Co. was admittedly an odd West Coast brewery for one very conspicuous omission in its beer line-up when its doors first opened – there was no IPA to be found. After several months of hearing requests (and even pleas) to add an IPA to our line-up, we released the Panic IPA in August 2012.

Panic IPA is heavily hopped with modern American hop royalty, featuring: Amarillo, Centennial, Crystal and Simcoe flavor and aroma hop additions. The result is an IPA that includes subtle citrus characteristics and not-so-subtle stone fruit notes as well. After several special releases, we have fully committed to Panic IPA as one of our regular releases. If you haven’t had a chance to enjoy a pint or two of this amazing beer, head down to Track 7 and give it a try. Panic optional.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours golden in color with a fair amount of frothy, white head atop. Lots of lacing as you drink. Carbonation looks solid. Aroma is of grapefruit, melon some herbalness and spice and a hint of malt liquor. Grapefruit rind and lemon up front climaxing to a spicy, floral hoppiness. Not much in the way of malts, other than a hint of light malt liquor towards the end. Alcohol comes through in the finish along with bitter grapefruit rind and spice which lingers on the tongue. Finishes crisp and clean. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with zesty carbonation, a little thin. Not a bad brew, reminds me a little bit of Sculpin IPA but not quite as good. Had this immediately after the Bloomer's Cut, which I much preferred. Still, a solid offering. Cheers!

22oz bottle, nonic, bottled 7/12/18.

Straw yellow, very clear, topped by an off white head that produces great lace.

Pine, biscuit dough, Meyer lemon.

Yellow citrus flavors, yellow grapefruit and lemon, very doughy malts, and a bitter finish with some pine.

It’s a middle of the road, tending towards gritty feel.

This is a solid California IPA. Nice job Sacramento.

Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into a snifter. The beer pours a bright clear bronze color with a fluffy eggshell white head of 4 cm even after a gentle pour. The foam slowly fades to a sturdy surface layer and clingy edging that leaves dense lattice after each sip. Numerous active streams of fine carbonation rise to the surface.
The aroma on this beer is olde school IPA with pine sap and a bit of rindy grapefruit notes with a bit of grassy hit too. Just a bit of sweet grainy malt comes through. Overall the nose is pretty mild.
the first sip reveals an average body with mild carbonation. the texture is smooth and the beer is easy to drink.
The flavor is what the nose advertises, again an olde school IPA. I get a little bit of grainy or cereal malt and then some grapefruit rind, aspirin bitterness and resiny pine sap. The finish dries out my palate completely and a lingering pine flavor sticks around.
The ABV is hidden and the beer is very easy to drink. If the nose were a little more bold Id rate this even higher. A good IPA.

Canned 1/9/18, consumed 2/21/18

Poured clear gold with a small head that left decent lacing.

Aroma is grapefruit, bready, and sweet malt.

Taste is a pretty even mix of pine, citrus fruit, and the sweet malt.

Mouthfeel is medium, medium carbonation, solid bitterness, dry finish.

Overall, more malt-forward than most but still very balanced. All of the flavor, body, and feel you'd expect from a solid West Coast IPA.

A: Hop aromas of citrus, light pine, faintly floral, coupled with a light malt sweetness.

A: Gold color, clear, with a thin, uniform white head with decent retention.

T: Crisp, with notes of pine and light citrus, fairly malty and lightly sweet, with a moderate hop bitterness and a dry finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Alright, the pine and floral character doesnt perfectly pair with the fairly strong malt additions. Drinkable, but just decent.

12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a medium fluffy white head that retains well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet biscuit malt with floral grassy hops and a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet cracker malts with floral fruity, slightly soapy, bitter hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent IPA. A bit too malty and floral for me.

What is the deal with this beer? It was all over the place a few years ago, but now seems to be harder to find? Anyways, pours a familiar amberish color, 1/3" white head on the top. Good dry hopping, aromatics popped on the hops quite nicely. I also had this from a can. Bought a 6 pack in Tahoe. Pine first, some fruit, grapefruit after that.

Taste was bright hoppiness, minimal caramel to weigh the beer down. Bitterness in the 50ibu range I would think. Maybe 60. More pine. Toasted pale malt. Seems like 4-5 different hop varieties, a mix of classic and proprietary. Orange in the mouth feelz. At $10 a 6 pack, I think this is a good deal, less than $2 a can for 2nd tier level ipa stuff. Keep bangin'.
