From a 12 oz can into a tulip glass, with a slight chill haze, itís bright amber orange with a moderate amount of sticky cream-orange colored foam. Loads of caramel and juicy citrus in the nose. Itís dense, approaching syrupy, bready, and sweet, with hops riding high above with nice grapefruit, citrus rind essence. With 11.2% alcohol, I have to say itís not that warm or that sweet. Big beer in a little can. I like it.

Snifter at the brewery. This guy is pretty malty, but definitely not too much so. The sweetness provides a little balance and takes away a little of the bite, but doesnít interfere with the rich hop aroma and flavor. The aroma has plenty of piney, garlicky character with a grapefruit backdrop. This translates well into the flavor. Plenty of clear, crisp hop bouquet. It has a sharp, dank herbal finish. Lots of lingering garlic and evergreen. Really clean, well made and "balanced".

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the brewery. Pours deep golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops plus a little garlic as well plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor the same with a good hoppiness but the summit characteristic garlic is a little overpowering. Smooth to thicker texture. Not bad but the summit Hops are a little too much.

Huge beer. Smells and tastes like a head shop....with big citrusy hops! Big sweet malts provide balance. Finishes quick and clean for such a behemoth.

12 oz. can. It pours a rather hazy lighter orange color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is fruity and floral with some salt and toasty malt. Some pine in there as well. The flavor is salty, spicy with some citrus and garlic, grass. A little toasty malt in there. Full bodied, but surprisingly drinkable for such a huge beer. Hops dominate. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. All Summit IIIPA? Turned out good!
