This autumn ale is a showcase of the mighty Summit hop. Our friend Jason grows amazing Summits that skillfully combine high alphas with captivating citrus aromas. We hope you enjoy.

10/27/12. On tap at Casbah. Light amber/brown pour with a nice, thick khaki head. Light aroma with some caramel maltiness, nuts, and a definite citrus and apple presence. The flavor is much the same with perhaps a touch more citrus and again that apple presence. Combine with the malts it reminds me of caramel apple in a way. Eh.

Lukaduke (2004) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Pours a amber brown color with a finger of eggshell foam... touch of lacing. On the nose caramel, buttered popcorn... on the palate a lot of the same. Not getting much of any hop flavors just a slightly medium bodied caramel maltiness that borders on butter popcorn YUCK... and this was fresh.

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Tap. Red amber with small head. Mildly hoppy amber ale. Nothing about this seems like a fall beer, but it’s fine for what it is.

Pours deep gold into a shaker. Off-white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Caramel, citrus and resin aromas. Thin to medium-bodied with sweet caramel upfront turning to earthy grapefruit in the lasting finish.

Pours a clear amber with a three finger head, even with a gentle pour. Lots of hop aroma. Bready palate with some hop bitterness.Strong tingling carbonation on the tongue. Hop bitterness and some sourness in the finish.

Draft at Brass City Brew Fest. Nicely blended and smooth amber ale. Some hop bite and some breadiness from the malt. Mediumly bodied. Not bad.

12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquor - Wakefield, RI. Signature green onion, lemon, and cat Summit aroma shines through. Not bad. Wow. Texture is a seltzer and cooked pizza onion bomb. Cardboard and onions that have been soaking in water with a splash of Worcestershire sauce. The Summit hop flavor is terrible here and it doesn’t help that the base is practically colored bubbling water. I’ve been trying to work through the Peak catalog because I want organic to work, but it doesn’t help that Shipyard keeps making a mess out of all the beers. P.S. I didn’t think this could get worse, but now it just tastes like the world’s worst dried out chocolate malt milkshake.
