Pours amber color. Very hoppy and earthy aroma. Very hoppy taste and very smooth. Surprisingly great beer!

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color. Average white frothy head dissapates quickly leaving some visible lacing. Aromas of toast, caramel, and some light hops. Taste is subtle; malty and a touch metallic with a very mild hop bitterness. Not my style of IPA.

Bottle pour. Aromas were strange with some off sweetness present. My biggest complaint is that I know Saga is out there... so much better

12 oz bottle pours a clear orange/amber color with average white head and very little lacing. Aroma is primarily of caramel malts. The hops only come forward in the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. There’s nothing horrible here, but nothing memorable either in the crowded field of IPAs. No complaints or praise here for this one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 This is an American version of an English style I.P.A, therefore, it doesn’t have the Citrus, Piney or tropical fruit profile of an American I.P,A. It does, however, have a subtle fruity nose and a middle of the tongue taste that blends with a subtle malt presence, The bottom of the tongue picks up a variety of bitter hop tastes, from kind of grassy and lingering to sharp and dry. This is actually a pretty good beer and it’s cheap, so this will be a definite GO-TO beer for me.

Bottle at Traut family Christmas...only beer with flavor there! Pours amber orange...decent white heAd but taste isn’t as distinctive / hoppy as one would expect in an IPA.

Standard ipa. Decent aroma and hop flavor but nothing stands out really. Decent drinking

Not one of Summits best efforts. Has the taste of an IPA light. Not enough flavor to identify anything that stands out. Would skip this one.

Do I detect a hint of cloves??? NO! Do I detect a hint of pepper? NO! Do I detect a hint of sassiness? NO! What do I detect? Chocolate tones and an inflated price. Why me God? Why? Hardly bitter. Not very tasty.....woe is me. Woe is me. NEVER AGAIN. NEVER. This stuff broke my heart. And only Blatz can make me whole again.
