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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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...
