robinvboyer (2985) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy orange pour, with a big frothy white head. HUGE aroma of citrus hops, super juicy tangerines, mandarins, lemons and ornages. Incredible aroma! Lively carb, light mouthfeel. Pungent bitter finish with some slight honey, and another buttload of c-hops. Incredibly drinkable, i want more!

zdk (1807) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2012
bottle from Joe Mcphee, thanks buddy! Nose is grassy hops and lightly soapy. Light sweet creamy body. Nice carbonation. Grassy dry finish and slightly resinous.

DerWeg (1482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2013
650ml bottle from Bellwoods, kept in fridge. Light gold coat with dense small bubble head and fine carb. Open and lightly grassy aroma plays into sweet-bitter grassy taste and lemon, manages to stay a little creamy and drinkable in spite of the definite herbal leafy dryness. Nice mineral on the finish, a bit of tea. It is what it says.

rejtable (1223) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours orange, clear with a frothy white head that sticks around and lots of lacing. Nose is onion, maybe garlic and some grapefruit. Aromas are grapefruit, onion, with a spicy finish. No malt sweetness. Taste is pretty heavy on the bitterness. Body is medium, with some silky quality to it. Lively carbonation with an acidic bite. Great way to get the summit profile.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Bomber from the brewery, courtesy of courez; thanks! Pours clear amber, with a foamy 1-inch head that never seems to dissipate. Brilliant sweet tropical fruit aroma - wonderful! Sweet taste with fruity hops, and only a mild bitterness at the end. I could’ve done with a few more IBUs, but it was fantastic as is. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation (all the carbonation seemed to go straight into that head). A well-balanced pale ale, and a great example of the style. Also I’m now a big fan of Summit hops, which I had never heard of before. Edit: tried a second bottle, and the bitterness seemed to be much higher. In fact, with the second bottle, I could’ve done with a few LESS IBUs...
