This traditional English style was originally brewed with extra hops to help it survive the voyage to India. Our IPA is enlightened by spicy herbal hops with a hint of caramel malt sweetness.

Pours a clear amber color with white head. Not too bitter, could use some more hop aromas & flavor

Not as critrusy as the usual IPA. This wasnít bad, though. It was a bit more spicy, verging on saison, than I usually want from my IPAs...

Missing some caramel/earthy sweetness to me. Nice hop balance, but the showy malt profile of, say, a Sam smith ipa is lacking this brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cwestlund (3) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2015 does not count
I think the bitterness should be dialed up a notch to match the maltiness. I agree on a different reviewer on the opinion that the beer is like a one-note song. Itís a decent beer but nothing is really making it shine. It should be noted that the current IBU that Summit says this beer stands at is 61, not 70.

Obfuscate (438) - Minneapolis, - MAR 2, 2015
Not a classic hop fresh nose you expect in a IPA. Taste is slight sweet citrus, thicker malt base than most in the style, some bitterness on the back. Maybe the non IPA fan would like this, those that are big IPA drinkers will be underwhelmed. Easy drinking enough though nothing poor.

Tap at Betty Dangerís. Pint glass. Typical Summit appearance which starts a trend toward a typical Summit beer. Hops on the nose. Golden color with some effervescence. Lacing is trying but not strong. Bitterness prevails throughout consumption. Itís like a one note song. The note is pretty good just not much else going on. Almost wish there was a citrus or typical element but I realize thatís not what this beer is meant to be. Resin aftertaste. A welcome complement to the Summit stable of hop centric offerings.
