Presenting Batch 12 in the Summit Unchained Series Ė 100% Organic Ale. Itís Minnesotaís first USDA-certified 100% organic beer. Itís also the first Unchained batch from new brewer Gabe Smoley. Gabe went all out to make this session IPA as enjoyable as it is sustainable. He even developed his own organic yeast strain (talk about a beer geek). 100% Organic Ale offers up pronounced rose, potpourri and floral hop character with a light malt backbone Ė making it the perfect beer for Spring. So enjoy this limited-release beer while you can.

Tap. Amber pour with white head. Smells of toasted malts and hops. Tastes of the same with not much bitterness. Nice easy drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Organic...yeah. Doesnít do much for me. The taste is what matters. The aroma is the highpoint, actually, with a rather attractive hop nose, suggesting a particularly high quality and balanced IPA. The flavor is down a notch or two--being somewhat vegetal and murky, with a backbone but not one that I really enjoy. Reasonable. Bottle.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, Caleb out with the hookup as usual! Dark reddish orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of dull metallic notes, caramel malts, slight hints of red fruits, but pretty dull crystal malt and some slight grass. Taste is a mix of dull red fruits, slight earth, grain, hints of spice, slight grass, finishing fairly dry, slightly bitter, more metallic notes. This did not work for me.

12oz bottle. Pours dark golden copper with a small white head. Aromas of bright citrus, light tropical fruit, and nice malty base. Flavor of citrus, light fruit, and bit of light fruit and basic malt base. Nice citrusy APA/IPA.

DocLock (9675) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2013
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.

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