3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cobriza, oscura, turbia.
Consistente espuma que no se pierde y queda pegada al vaso.
Buen cuerpo, resinosa.
En boca picante, bastante amarga, y un final astringente.

26th November 2011
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows some soft fruity hops along with more prominent pine, grapefruit and resinous notes. Underneath is some sweet caramel and bready notes.
Flavours mostly comprised of pine and herbal hops, but some clean malt shows up later. Finishes with a sharp, aggressive bitterness.
Too highly carbonated.
Not particularly interesting, and summit doesn’t really seem suited to bittering.
