Hazy golden pour ... little lacing with a thin white head .... sweet malty aroma and some light floral hop ... taste of sweet malts and a mellow hop taste with a bitter dry finish ... the summit hops give it a good pale ale taste with a dry finish... nothing special here but sessionable .... says its only available at the brewery and blue dog tavern chalfont pa found that interesting .... its considered an apa

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Founders brewpub. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate tart citrus hop and sweeet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Another good drinkable beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the brewery - Aroma of sweet caramel malts and sticky resin hops. Flavor of resinous hops, caramel and dusty malts. Palate is tart and sticky. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. An all Summit hopped IPA. Clear amber with medium creamy white head. Aroma is well blended resiny pine, light sulphur, caramel dryness and slight toast. Flavor is dry caramel with especially dry piney hops, pretty pungent with the hops (mostly pine but some citrus), pretty great all around. Nice, dry IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a really damn good beer. On tap at founders. Pours a transparent amber color. Taste is hoppy, but very smooth, hardly any bitterness. I will definitely get another growler of this if its still on tap.
