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.

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.

I was impressed by this beer. Not knowing what to expect out of a beer that simply had a label reading "100% organic" and rather suspicious at first, the aroma is a beautiful hoppy resin and taste is complex. Color is reddish brown. Tastes like hop, caramel, some malt, a bit sour near the end with a bitter after taste. Rich medium body. Good beer overall.

Bottle pour into a pint for this brew. I donít care that much that itís organic - but I guess itís a good bonus. Good sessionable IPA

On draught at 2013 North American Organic Brewers Festival. Amber in color and fizzy. Malty aroma with grassy hops. Fine but unexceptional bitter grass hop and malt flavor. Finishes a little too light bodied.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden, nice looking beer. Some nice hops, citrusy and floral on the nose and tongue. Commercial description says IPA, style is specialty grain. No matter, its a solid beer.

This beer has a lemony scent to it and does the same as a lemon would if I touched it to my tongue. It almost makes my tongue feel like it did when I would put it on a 9 volt battery when I was a child. This one has floaters in it so if you donít like floaters in your brew this one isnít for you. In the world of craft beer these days this one is just okay.

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.
