Beer styles, like all other art forms, are subject to trends that come and go. What makes something last long enough to become a classic in the canon? Balancing an adherence to style with innovation. Steel Toe's flagship IPA, Size 7, does just that. It's got that hopped-up goodness that hopheads prefer, countered with a sweet middle malt, and complemented by a strong citrus nose. Yes, the beer is a hoppy IPA, but to call it that ignores its true depth of character and downplays the smooth and relaxing happiness you get when you take your first sip.
