Bottles from multiple sources. Pours pretty rurbid orange with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is intense hops, caramel malt, black peppery notes, spicy florals. Tastes caramel malty, grainy, with a big hop flavor, but not as much as the aroma would indicate. Finishes smooth, somewhat bland, with still solid hops.

I’ve been a longtime Summit fan. Some of my favorite beers come from this brewery. This one is good, but it’s a bit bright and overly sharp in an unbalanced way. It’s good, but I would still go with their classic pale over this.
