3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange. Really clear. About half a finger of head. Smell is heavy on citrus, with a tinge of malt sweetness. The taste starts with bitterness, mellows into a sweet fruity hop and malt magic, and finishes with a lighter, dry bitterness in the back of your mouth. Centennial hops make an appearance, and an almost plum-like flavor is present. Is that Rakau? I’ve never had a beer with that hop before. Overall, I like this beer quite a bit. Much better than the standard Summit IPA offering.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours coppery-gold with a nice, lasting head. Aroma is hops, citrus, and hints of the noted kiwi and apricot; scent gets much more pronounced and bouncy as the beer warms. Taste is clean upfront citrus with nice resiny mouthfeel, fading to a balanced bitter. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour into goblet. Aroma isn’t very strong, but has a distinct resin forward quality, with grapefruit and floral notes. Appearance is clear amber with decent (1/2") white foam head that leaves nice lacing. Taste is lightly sweet, moderately butter, and lightly sour, I would say it’s very pleasant but not powerful. Palate has a medium body, creamy texture, and a slightly bitter finish. This is a really good IPA on the lighter side, and the price locally is hard to beat.

Yellowish orange. Thick, frothy head. Bready malts, lemony aromas, some tangy citrus akin to grapefruit or tangerine. A really nice, really drinkable IPA.

Can, at Eaux Claires music festival in Wisconsin. Had a few of these at the festival, definitely the best thing available. Wish I could have tried it properly in a glass, but still enjoyed it - nice tropical fruit notes with medium bitterness, not the most flavourful IPA but tasty and pretty well balanced. Would like to try it again sometime.

On tap. Very aromatic with citrus fruits and slight pine. Very clear amber, copper, and slight orange hue with healthy white head lacing nicely. Subtle caramel sweetness with orange marmalade and pineapple. Medium carbonation and soft bitterness. This is a really nice aggressive IPA that I can drink a lot of.
