When it came time for brewer Mike Lundell to brew his newest Unchained Series beer, he asked himself: “What does the beer world need most right now?” The answer: “Another IPA!” No, seriously, that is the beer’s name – Another IPA. An English-style IPA featuring Golden Promise malt and Target hops, expect herbal hop notes, nutty malt character and a fruity nose. Why order just another IPA when you can get Another IPA! Malts: Golden Promise. Hops: Target.

To add to the Unchained nature of this beer, Mike brewed two batches of Another IPA with slightly different malt bills. The first batch features Golden Promise malt from Simpsons Malt in the UK. This malt has been kilned to our specifications, resulting in a slightly darker (deep bronze) IPA with a fuller body. This brew will have an “Enjoy By Date” of 12/13/13 on the bottles. The second brew of Unchained 13 features a standard-kilned Golden Promise malt from Thomas Fawcett & Sons UK maltsters. Bottles will include an “Enjoy By Date” of 12/27/13. This beer will be a bit lighter in body and color (dark gold).

Bottle. Floral nose. Hazy gold with a thin white head. Really nice hoppy flavor. Very unique. Grassy, some spice. One of Summit’s best ever beers.

Ericular (961) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours a pale amber with suspended sediment, quickly fading head and good lacing. Aroma is lemon, citrus, floral. Flavor is a little citrus up front, then into a chewy malt with a deeply grassy, bitter rind in the middle - tart with a dirty, grainy finish. The dominating flavor is like an uncoated aspirin pill, only partially salvaged by the malts.

commonmac (1045) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Poured in a pint glass on Sweeney’s patio in St. Paul. Aroma and appearance of a normal IPA. Looking for something more but feels like Summit rested on its laurels. Starts OK and ends worse than OK. Less pine than most but not bringing much to the table. I will say it’s pretty easy to drink. Maybe we didn’t need another IPA?

jmohno (1528) - Iowa, USA - AUG 16, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 Paleish yellow,clear with some slight yeast debrie.Heady at first quickly receding to a ring with slight lace. Lemony floral citrus aroma.Grassy,tart.Fairly pungent.Slight bready. Lemony floral citrus taste and pungent,strong tart citrusy finish.Very pithy lemon rind bitter. Dry and crisp,very slightly buttery or light caramel. Pretty dry and clean malt base.More of a west coast style ipa in the sense that its hop bitter dry unbalanced,not neccessarly the tart thing. More lemony citrus tart than I like my ipas.

bookman10 (952) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Not bad. This pours a very pale yellow with minimal head. Floral/hop aroma, with some bready notes. Flavor is very crisp, with pepper, citrus, and pine-hop bitterness. Bitter finish.

Scopey (12508) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Cask at GBBF 2013. It pours pale golden yellow with pretty much no head. The nose is soft, grainy, straw, floral and dough. The taste is lemony, grapefruit, pepper, decent bitterness, floral, straw, with a dry, citric finish. Not much going on.... A bit bland really...
