4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy reddish copper with a nice thick ivory head. Orange, lemon, grass, pine, and resinous notes. The flavor is hop forward but has a sweetness that creates a nice balance. Very drinkable for an 8% abv beer. Medium body with moderate to high carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth with a tingling bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Another home run for Oskar Blues.

Pour is a dark orange with a large white head. Aroma is a nice pungent hop with an equally nice sticky malt backbone. Flavor is more of a nice fresh hop with a chewy caramel malt bringing things up. This is a solid but heavier mouthfeel than usual IPA.

This is a great higher gravity IPA. Not truly as hoppy as they say. Deschutes Fresh squeezed or Gr Flash W Coast IPA seem hoppier. In reality Deviant a bit maltier. So the malt/hop ratio can obscure true hop content. Nonetheless, this is a great Bier. If you like IPAs, this is Dales Pale Ale beefed up to IPA. And I love it!

On tap. Served a mahogany color with a small head and bits of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, citrus, pine and trace of malt and booze.Taste of citrus, dark fruit, bit of pine and malt sweetness. Good bitterness and a dry finish. Mediumbody, crisp with a nice hop bite. Enjoyable beer worth checking out.

It poured a hazy amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of caramel, citrus, peach and pine. The taste was a little sweet and medium bodied with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Good stuff.

Keg at BD Brum, 8/5/14. Pours burnt orange amber, offwhite head. Nose of caramel, pine resin, citrus and a kind of oniony dankness. Tastes fairly sweet caramel, then big bitterness, lots of orange, lots of pine and plenty more onion. Not in a bad way though, I quite like this Summit character.

Pour slightly hazy mahogany, with a small white head.
Aroma has smoe caramel, faint grass, pine..
Somewhat tasty bitter taste, but has a very malty-sweetness to it.
Medium bodied, with a fizzy carb.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2014 Canned 10/15/14, so still fresh by my standards (I think pale ales, including IPAs, are just fine within three months). Popped open the can: ugh. Big pine, catty aroma Iím not fond of in some IPAs. Flavor unfortunately follows suit, though there is also some resin I like. Not noticing the fruit. Maybe this isnít at the right temp. Iíll give it more time and see if I can re-rate. Got a four-packer, and I liked their pale ale, so Iím hoping to avoid drainpours here! NEXT DAY UPDATE: This stuff is still vile to my nose and taste buds. Onion, garlic, body odor, cat pee, pine. Ugh. Had to drainpour the whole pack. Disappointed. :(
