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 (2009) - 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.

330ml bottle (BB Brevinga, Riga)
Spicy sweet aroma. Crisp palate. Amazingly simple body, but I love the nutty roast. The odd thing about this is that it’s trying to show off a single hop and yet this works because it doesn’t actually jump out in any direction. Very drinkable, so nutty - walnutty. Super drinkable, super super drinkable.

spacecube (651) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2013
330ml bottle, pours clear amber with a nice sized head, nice sweet citrussy nose, in the aroma there’s caramel malt, balanced with orange citrus flavours and piney, resiny hop notes. The carbonation is lively. The finish is bitter and crisp. Nice

javiercrasher (138) - Granada, SPAIN - FEB 8, 2013
Cobriza, oscura, turbia. Consistente espuma que no se pierde y queda pegada al vaso. Aroma herbal. Buen cuerpo, resinosa. En boca picante, bastante amarga, y un final astringente.

Cloudy darkish amber beer with a big fluffy off white head. Crispy palate. Creamy malt with has distinct pale malt and caramel streaks. Sweet tangerines and a little lemon and lime. It’s almost sherbet like. A little orange marmalade in the finish. A sweet IPA but a great showcase for the hop.

davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle from Blackhearts & Sparrows. Very tasty and balanced. Aromas of caramel, anisette, liquorice, hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter, very long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is floral hops, grapefruit, pepper, and caramel. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a dry finish.

wlajwl (3546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Aroma is light pine, malts and a hint of nuttiness. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, malts and a dry and very bitter finish.

Bottled (thanks Papsoe!). Hazy orange colour, small off-white head. Aroma is catpiss, some sweet malts, mild yeasty and herbal notes. Flavour is toffee, some mild bitter fruity and floral notes along with some grassyness.
