3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Resinous, pitchy almost tar hop aroma is very strong. Onion, perhaps garlicky almost. Hazy, light orange pour sits underneath a thin head. Citrus, pine hop flavor is quite bold. Bitter finish. Medium body but not too chewy. Mild carbonation. A good bitter IPA but the summit hops do impart a harsh aroma that takes a minute to adjust to.
