Life On Tap Episode #279: Size 7

Dan samples a Pacific Northwest-style IPA, Steel Toe Brewing Size 7, care of friends Rick and Paige earlier during the pandemic.

Steel Toe Brewing Size 7

STYLE: Pacific Northwest-style IPA
ABV: 7.0%
IBU: 77
AVAILABILITY: 12-Ounce cans (6 Pack), 22-Ounce bottles, Draft (Year Round)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s website.

Appearance

Orange burgeoning on burnt orange, with a nice, fluffy head.

Aroma

Old school, slightly sweeter smelling malt bill for a bit of throwback.

Taste

Balanced and dry, but a little more on the pine/resin hop forward.

Mouthfeel

Tight carbonation and solid body/mouthfeel.

Overall

This is a really great entry from a new brewery to me. I don’t see Pacific NW style IPAs often, so I really embraced this one for the flavor throwback. As I mentioned in the video, I had it with some chicken and waffles, which made for a pretty good pairing, though it would likely go with a host of different foods.

Thank you so much to Paige and Rick for sharing this one!.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
