1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

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.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber pour with a short, spotty foam head. Aroma is strong citrus notes, light pine and floral hops. Taste is big citrus, floral hops, tropical fruit notes and light caramel. Body is light-medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more citrus, light pine, tropical fruit, floral hops, sweet malt and light caramel. Wasn’t expecting the hop bomb that I got but this wasn’t too bad!
