Emphasizing that complexity of character can arise from simple elements, this ale is made with three malts and one hop. Its light amber color and slightly spicy malt character are derived from the use of German Dark Munich Malt and Rye Malt respectively. North American 2-row barley combines with the other grains to lay the foundation for the hop onslaught to come. Summit hops are used exclusively in the boil for bitterness, flavor and aroma but it doesn’t end there. Post-fermentation dry hopping allows the 10% ABV monstrosity to gently coax the citrus rind and grapefruit aroma to join the 100 IBUs already present. This beer should greet you with a pungent citrus blast, provide a spicy yet round middle and finish with a brisk, clean bitterness. Columbus in early and mid kettle.
** This beer will now feature different hops in the massive dry hop every year.
2014 - Sorachi Ace, Mosaic, and Chinook. Incredibly complex mix of lemon zest, pineapple, red berries, peach, and a hint of dank earthiness.

Not bad for the beer in a can. Sweet malty and hoppy this is a perfect beer for a sunny afternoon. Not too light but not too dark either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Love the change of dry hopping in 2014. Very fresh aroma with a hint of maltiness. Great pineapplenotes up front with a spicy finish. Better than the last time I had it.

Light copper, almost yellow. Tons of citrus and slight pungent hop aroma (thank you for using SUMMIT!) Flavor is tropical fruits, super summit spice, and lots of bitterness. Subtle honey sweetness when balanced with the heavy hops. Great stuff.

Can. Clear golden color, medium white head working down to a thin lacing. Citrus and floral dominate the aroma. Sweet citrus and berry fruit taste. Medium-thin body, sticky texture, long & dry bitter finish. Nice double IPA.

reminded me of Belgian blonde ale but with decent hopping presence. Pale in color, malt oriented more than hops, thick textured and foamed, above medium body, aroma dominated by lime zest, floral-grassy tones, bitternes- average for style, medium lasting aftertaste. Interesting for one time.

Intense malty background with distinct caramel, pleasantly intense citrusy hops. light pine, bit of tropical fruits. Moderate sweet with quite intense bitterness. yes, its 10 abv, yes its quite complex, but its helluva refreshing as well

Pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head. Has a citrus and hops aroma. Flavor is tropical fruits, spice, and lots of bitterness. Somewhat sweet, but the finish is quite dry. Great beer!
