Presenting Batch 12 in the Summit Unchained Series – 100% Organic Ale. It’s Minnesota’s first USDA-certified 100% organic beer. It’s 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 – making it the perfect beer for Spring. So enjoy this limited-release beer while you can.

crossovert (11013) - Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Darker IPA pour, floral citrus hosp in the nose, slight caramel. Flavor is tangy, citrus rind dominates hop character. There is some bready malts but no too much sweetness. Very bitter lower abv ipa. bonus points for being 100% organic.

DocLock (9701) - 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.

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.

nuplastikk (5709) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Filtered amber-tan. Soapy, oily, thin head. Mellow, fruity, lots of ale yeast tones. Not so far off from the California Common, in some respects. A good beer, very sessionable, but lacks hop boldness. Classic, well done IPA.
