3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy straw-golden with a moderate white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of grapefruit peel and spice, along with pale malts and a subtle herbal quality. The flavour is quite dry throughout with a moderate hoppy bitterness up front with grapefruit peel and lemon. A peppery spiciness picks up through the middle along with the bitterness. It closes out with a long, dry and bitter finish with pepper notes. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a dry, slightly astringent texture and average carbonation. Overall, a nice pale ale with an interesting bitter quality, but it seems too simple to stand along as the sole hop. 2014-07-30
