LCBF. Just had a sample of this one, as I was very drunk at this point. Orange brown, no real head. Smell and taste gave the same impression - syrupy hops, orange and caramel. Nothing too intense - all a bit toned down. Nice enough. Body is medium, carbonation low.

Fritz123 (963) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle at Burp Castle, NYC. Pours a cloudy orange-light brown with thick head in a snifter. Fluffy white head lasted and created some great lacing. The aroma was pine, resin, citrus, malts and yeast. The taste was nice with the pine hitting first followed by the well balanced malts mellowing out the bitterness. Then the finish comes and the bitter comes back with a hint of citrus. Medium body. Very nice.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1850) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2013
A bottle drunk at a Single Hop IPA tasting I organized. The Summit IPA had a pine and musty aroma with a decent clean bitterness. I liked it on it’s own but was a bit one dimensional.

maekchu (2052) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle from Asahiya. Solid malty nose with piney hops, rounded and full. Dark amber color, beige head. Sweet malty initial, very thick / good balance in mid / final brings up the hops in a gentle manner. Medium body. Seems too rich and full for an IPA. More like a baby barley wine. Very smooth and tasty.

One of the weaker links in Mikkeller’s single-hop chain of IPAs. I can’t claim great familiarity with Summit, but from this it appears to need other hops to soften its herbal character. Not that this is a bad beer - Mikkeller can make a silk purse out of any sow’s ear. Lovely-looking: bright copper with a thick, creamy head. Inviting summery aroma: canned peaches, passionfruit, candied oranges. Full, slick mouthfeel. Starts well on the tongue but falls away in the mid-palate before a chewy, resinous finish. Nice walnut and toffee caramalt notes. Marred by a heavy herbal astringency in the after-taste. A lot to like here but that finish meant I found it challenging to finish the bottle. (33cl bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 6/10/13)

Marduk (2637) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 17, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy, dark yellow color. Small off-white head. Sweet, toffee, gingerbread dough in aroma. Sweet, nutty, grapefruit in taste. Nice nutty mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.
