3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice copper and amber coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, earthy malt, a light sweetness and a bit of fruit. Medium-bodied; Strong hoppy flavours of herbs, flowers and a touch of grass with a good malt backbone, some light caramel flavours and a smooth sweet finish. Aftertaste shows mainly hop bitterness from the herbal hops, but not overwhelming, plus matched well with malt and sweetness. Overall, a very nice IPA - better than I was expecting, and worth trying if you stumble upon it. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1.79 sampled in Woodhaven, Michigan on 03-August-2013.

Really solid IPA - nice tongue, nice taste, and nice texture. Nothing extraordinary, but almost exactly what comes to mind when I think "IPA".

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
My new favorite and a steal at $6.99 a six pack. Aroma is of tropical fruit and floral citrus notes. Taste is very floral with clean crisp citrus notes. Very bright and carbonated. Dangerously drinkable.

An unexpectedly solid offering from summit. Creamy mouthfeel and distinct but understated tropical hop bite, im mostly getting grapefruit and kiwi. A steal for the price...

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 On tap at Hangar 45 in Columbia Heights, Minnesota, served in a huge 25 ounce mug. The biggest beer I’ve had in awhile! Not much head on this serving. Pretty much all beer, all the way to the top.
Served ice cold, but that’s a good thing, as it takes a while to get through a beer that size.
I see IBUs listed as 80, which is by some measures the baseline for a very "hoppy" beer. This is certainly the case here. Hops are way up front here, balanced with just enough malt to take the edge off the bitterness. The flavours of both hops and malts are bold and assertive, and overall this beer is very well balanced. Very nice indeed!
