Very Good
Panic IPAPanic IPA
Notes: 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.

Nice smell and good piney tasting local IPA but unfortunately lacks body. Also a tad too much carbonation and too light of a mouth feel.

Probably the most consistent Track 7 beer. Classic west coast IPA, clear golden color, clean hop zing without lingering finish, and good carbonation. Get it fresh and be happy (though there are many other classic IPAs that are very similar - Stone, Union Jack, and Racer 5 come to mind).

Thier other beers range from average to very good and they do try difficult styles (unlike so many IPA style only breweries - ugh) not always the best executed for the other beers. Best brewery in Sacto to date.

Look is good and smell is amazing. Initial taste is of nice sweet peaches and tangerines. Mouthfeel is amazing. It is an extremely well balanced beer.

This is a great IPA. Beautiful color, taste, aroma on this brew. It can hold its own versus any IPA in California from any big name brewery. One of my ATF IPA's.

The review by BoilerMakerBrew, below a few posts, is spot on. I don't mind the lighter feel as you don't get too bloated too fast. And, yes, it is much better in person and FRESH.

Best of all, the owners Geoff & Ryan are really down to earth humble guys. I live about 20 minutes from the original hole-in-the-wall location in Tahoe Park so I'm there alot to fill my growler or hang out with friends.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.
