Notes: Huge hop aroma and flavor, that was the only goal in the design of this West Coast style IPA. Over 1 lbs./ barrel of Simcoe and Citra Hops in the boil and over 2 lbs./ barrel in our re-circulating hop back dry hopping process give this beer some serious street cred. Once bitten, victims suffer from severe perma-grin, chronic highfiveitis, and epic hop headedness.

An average IPA from a brewer who is well above average in showing a spirited innovation of combining craft beer and food.

7 Headed would have gotten a better rating from me if it didn't pretend to be a "Monster." Even though this "Monster" probably is 7 Hills' cash cow, they should consider tweaking what is a nearly-balanced recipe (a tad too many hops) and relaunching another brew as a companion to certain of their foods. (They have got a very interesting menu, a 9 out of 10 by my read.)

I'm not going to be too critical of the flagship brew of a three year old operation. Particularly since I am impressed by how they took an old warehouse in an old river town and played an important role in giving folks good reason to keep coming back downtown. For that regeneration of community spirit and their menu, I give 7 Hills some pretty good OA Hugs.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours orange red with a small white head. Smells of citrus hops with strong sweet grain. Tastes of citrus and piney hops with nice malt backbone. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall an above average beer.

12oz bottle. Poured out a very dark, amber color with a small, khaki-colored head of foam. It smelled very malty with hints of pine. Wow, this is a malty, grassy, piney beer.
