UPDATED: JUL 7, 2015 As a Minnesotan eh I love Summit brewery. This is their stake on the popular (and delicious) west coast IPA. Lots of great citrus smell and taste up front, not very dry on the back of your mouth but very drinkable. Not my go to when I’m looking for a west coast IPA but always welcome in my mouth and belly. Update, had a few of these over 4th of July weekend at Grand View Lodge. Had to bump it up a bit.

Amber color, relatively heavy carbonation for the style. White to slightly off-white head with foam clinging to the glass. Subtle aroma hints of citrus or pine. Initial taste is nicely balanced malts and hops. Relatively thick moth feel. This transitions to a piney aftertaste that lingers quite awhile. Very good IPA.

Bomber @ bnielsen13. Pours a very hazy, bright orange appearance with an off white head. Tropical fruit, mango, spicy hops, light toast in the nose. Moderate high sweetness and bitterness. A little thick mouth feel. Some caramel and pineapple and citrus. A little old bottle but fine.

Bottle from Steve, thanks man! Golden amber pour with a nice finger of frothy white head. Aroma is citrus, skunk, and a bit of floral hops. Taste is, light citrus up front, followed by some subtle sweetness, and then into a nice punch of bitterness, finish is dry with a some lingering bitterness. Very crisp and refreshing, nice one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old bottle, 4 months past "enjoy by." Medium resinous aroma, heavy scent, little citrus. Dark gold and cloudy, white thin lasting head. Full bodied IPA, slowly developing flavour, malty taste forward with a small hop acidity and bitterness in the end, very long lasting aftertaste. Missing some hop punch in the front, probably from the age of the bottle. Good for cold weather, a hearty IPA as opposed to a refreshing one. Pretty good.

Bottle pours clear orange with thick fluffy white head. Very pleasant aroma of citrus and light fruits. Taste matches aroma with a sweet malty backbone as well. Finish moderately bitter hops. Quite a nice IPA.

Draft - Lots of fresh pine and grapefruit. Clear gold with a rich white head. Big and bright pine with a hit of full on fresh piny bitterness. This will wake you up, great after a bunch of mediocre beers. Full on hop heaven.
