jamestulloch (1448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from Great Grog. Clear amber body with a thick off-white head. Very low carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of bay leaf, herbs and orange. Flavour of bitter, pithy blood orange, lemon zest, herbs and caramel malt. Medium body with a frothy texture. Light fizz. A bitter hop, showcased well here, but evidence that Summit is better in a combination than on its own.

MunBro (399) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Today I learned I don’t like summit hops. Or, at least this IPA. Very bitter, malty flavour. Not much to enjoy.

vadie (746) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
Cuivre/rouge avec un grand tête beige foncé avec de la bonne rétention. L’arôme est d’houblon floral avec un peu du malt. C’est apparent que il y a un peu du malt pilsner. Le goût est principalement d’houblon floral. Il y a aussi du malt, très bien équilibré, avec un peu d’acidité. La finition est sec avec un bon goût amer qui reste sur la palate. Selon moi le choix de malt est parfait pour le style d’houblon.

DrSilverworm (6572) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Totally hazy darker amber color. Thin off-white head, leaves decent reaches of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft / crisp, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Interesting earthy hop aroma. Light pine, light peppery. Some caramel malt. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. No way of knowing how old it is right now, but it’s drinking like a solid, interesting single-hop showcase.

Bottle from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Hazy, copper colour. Thin, lasting, bubbly, off white head. Grass. Straw. Wet hop. Taste is dry. Very bitter. Overly carbonated. Finish is dry, bitter and a little metallic. Under par.

b3shine (5573) - Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks decent; malty though. A very slightly hazy dark orange with thin eggshell head. Smells like a sweet pale malt bomb with some hops on the back end. Tastes like it smells with an average (at best mouthfeel). Some caramel too. Grandpa’s IPA.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
Rating #1033 - March 21, 2014 - On tap at Beer Rev. 5th or 6th for me in the Mikkeller single hop brews.Pours a hazy copper with a fairly frothy head. sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet, tangerine, meyer lemon, and mild sappy, resinous pine note.Taste is mild sweetness (citrusy, piney, floral) and a lingering bitterness - cookie dough, caramel malt character really brought out, and the sticky pine-tar, sappyness of the hops. A beautiful balanced beer that isn’t shy about its IBU (100ish). Really quite tasty.

Joakgust (917) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber beer with a large beige head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus, herbs, apricots and sourish hints. Flavor is spicy with notes of citrus, pine needles, herbs and lime. A bit old but still good flavor.
