3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer rocks. No hype just a great beer. Loads of upfront aroma with a killer hop taste. Interesting it is a bit of a twist flavor wise from many ipa. Lots of tail end bitterness but very palatable ... Exceptional ipa. U would be hard pressed to find a better. Summit and lagunitas are brewing for the common man! And I love it...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle - Pours copper with a one finger off-white head. It has a citrus hop aroma. The flavor is balanced as IPAs go with assertive hop bitterness and a sweet malt backing with a hint of caramel. Medium bodied. Pleasant enough lingering bitterness. To me it’s a fairly good IPA but not quite as good in its style as others have rated it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle, although mine looks different than the picture. maybe I got a fake. I hope not. anyway. nose full of dank with some earthiness and moderate notes of citrus and pine. hazy orange pour with small head. initial taste is a touch sweet and fruity like a cantaloupe with some pineapple flavor too. bitterness kicks in quickly and kicks in a harsh astringency. I wish the sweetness and bitterness were both toned down to allow more of the hops to shine in the flavor. the drying finish from the bitterness is rough on the tongue. Half way through the glass I’m adjusted to it, but I think my tongue feels like someone grabbed it and ran it through a grinder and then stuck a hairy toupee on it.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Typical ipa hoppy aroma but more sweet and less BO. Yes, from a bottle the first taste impressions are IPA, fer sure. Rather dull but not fully processed flavors. Date code 3/16/14. Yes, typical tasty IPA, even tho I don’t get this style it is rather IPA-ish. Perhaps not as much as this site rates it in its style but OK, I guess. Goes down fairly easy when the second half is drank write from the bottle. Decently weak co2 but bare able. Still, it has this nasty on style finish as with most bitter ipa.

At the Big Texas Beer Fest on 4/5/2014. Draft pours orange thin small head. Aroma is muted hops, thin hops, not much there. Taste is dry cardboard hopiness, a little bitter and on the rough side.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee Muscatine. Golden, pale and pretty clear with a sticky white head. Nice fresh aroma of tropical fruits, citrus hops, floral notes, herbs and light pale malts. Similar flavor, crisp, hoppy and lightly fruity with medium bitterness and a touch of malty sweetness. Medium body with a clean, smooth feel, easy to drink. Wow I am impressed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear pale gold with white fizzy head; splotchy lacing. Aroma is floral hops along with citrus and tropical fruit; some light biscuity malt in the background. Taste is decidedly bitter with citrus rind present. Nice and juicy. Crisp clean palate; not too heavy. Nice brew, could probably drink a few of these.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright orange pour of medium clarity and a quarter inch of white head, moderate bubbles rising from the glass. Carbonation is farely lively, mouthfeel foamy, very very clean finish. Really nice citrus hop nose, robust and rounded out by a biscuity malt presence. Taste is superb, crisp and juicy. Fresh very juicy citrus hops, floral and tropical fruits, strong citrus rind too. Very well done IPA from summit. May be more potent out of the bottle if my memory serves me right.
