3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden with a medium off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is light, grassy hops and malt. Flavor is a bit a malt, caramel, pine, and grassy hops with a bite that’s a bit on the lighter side for IPAs. Light to medium body with medium carbonation and good balance. Pretty good brew.

On tap at the Nook in St Paul. Underwhelmed by this English style IPA. It does what it’s supposed to. Moderate head. Darker golden color. Low aromas, and bitter taste.

On tap, Barrio St Paul release day. Deep orange, lively carbonation. Lingering foamy head. So Summit has too many IPA’s, but I like this one. It’s light bodied but has a nice chewy malt profile with some juicy fruit hops in the background. Easy drinking, lucky 13 is a winner.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at APN, from a cask. Pour is a hazy yellow with tons of citrus hops, one of their better beers actually.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on cask at All Pints North 2013 in Duluth, MN. Hazy yellow pour with a small head. Fruity citrusy, some hop bite, with a bit of malt coming through. Decent beer, but (just) another IPA.
