3.79/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

16 oz can poured into a snifter.

Slightly hazy yellow color, 1 inch white head, nice glass lacing.

Citrus and floral hops. Biscuit malt.

Lemon, orange, pineapple and faint pine. Finishes bitter.

Carbonation is adequate. Light body.

A decent ipa. Nothing really stands out but it gets the job done.

Poured down glass from 16 oz can. Decent head and good lacing. Color is light caramel with little cloudy. Smell is nice floral. Flavor is piney, tea tones, little bit of grapefruit, with a crisp, bitter finish. This is a great IPA from Columbus.

I tried this at Local Roots in Powell, OH. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus presence. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a good beer.

Description: Clear, golden appearance with lots of white lacing. Smell is all hops - not really any fruit or floral notes - but I also picked up some green pepper. Taste is hoppy and bitter with some dankness and a hoppy punch as it goes down. Carbonation is low and it's a bit heavier than a typical IPA.

Suggested food pairing: Potato chips

Overall: 4 (This beer is good and I may or may not drink it again) In full disclosure, I'm not really sure that this is the beer I drank. There's like two or three Scientist IPAs and the barmaid didn't seem to sure about what she was serving. Nevertheless, this beer is well executed but not outstanding. At this point I feel like I'm getting IPA merge and having difficulty telling them all apart. This is more hop forward than others, so take that for what it's worth.

3.42/5  rDev -13%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Beautiful copper with a soft beige head.

Pine candy and grapefruit pith exclusively on the nose.

Taste is orange, grapefruit, light pine, and apple.

Bitter but gently so with a soft body.

In my time at Seventh Son I all of their IPAs are grapefruit and pine forward, at different levels. The other chunk of their offerings largely consist of farmhouse ales. Whatever you order though, almost all of their beers are quite visually striking and pleasing--they just have that little extra kick when it comes to looks, for whatever reason.

I had this as part of a flight at Columbus Brewing (since they only had two taps of their own brews). I think it was labeled batch 9g. It's skunky but not funky. It works if you want nasty smelling brew.

It looks nice in the glass, kind of dark yellow, but the smell imparts a over the top skunkiness that follows to a lesser degree in the taste. It's a very pungent, nutty taste. The aftertaste is far out there and slightly funky.

This is a big, bold AIPA that I would not seek out or recommend. I liked some other Seventh Son things a lot, but they don't seem to all wok for me. My fandom is waning.

This was a great beer today and hopefully will be tomorrow. The Scientist is Seventh Son's ever evolving IPA. The most current version remains hop-centric. Some floral notes and a lot of citrus. It is best classified as a West Coast. Malt profile is pretty muted and that suits me fine. Finishes crisp and sharp. Well done .....let's see where it goes from here.

This is hoppy, but never fully develops into the citrus explosion that the aroma would lead you to think it is. It's good, and closes in on great with an aftertaste that develops into a nice hop mix.

I nice easy drinking ipa. Tropical aromas and taste dominate. Seventh Son might want to think about adding this to their canning line up . . . just sayin'

Deep copper orange. Not cloudy, but not transparent.

A little weak on aroma.

Very good flavor. Tropical flavored hop bomb. Gives you a malty lager tease, then the hops blow it out of the water.

Significant malt profile for an IPA, but plenty of hops to compensate. Would gladly drink again.
