3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden to dark golden pour with a small bubbled slightly dense white head. English hops aroma and a very earthy mineral note a big whif yields something that I can almost call a light vomit or soap... really it’s something funky, but not good.. fortunately not really noticeable. The taste is a light toffee under a classic english hop, very earthy a little soapy. OK, but not something I’ll order again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, second brew. Pours a rather ugly cloudy yellow-orange body with an off-white head. Aroma of straw, bread, grass, and faint citrus. Taste is mainly grassy hops with some citrus peel. Bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I guess I got the second batch as mine says best by 12/27. Pour is a cloudy blonde with a large white head. Aroma is almost a pils type bready malt. Flavor is more of a dry cracker malt with some a bit of grasay hay like hops. Finish is a touch herbal and bitter. Just ok. I don’t know what they were going for here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy medium amber colored brew with lively and dense off white head. Orange candy is the strongest scent I can get with some bits of pancake batter. This is like lightly bitter orange marmalade mixed into pancake batter. The body is lively with carbonation, yet a little bit dusty in the finish. This one is a decent drink and has enough bitterness throughout to keep it interesting and to balance the fair sweetness.

No a very good ipa. Very malty and not very hoppy beer. Smells hoppy and pour a dark yellow orange on color.

Poured from draft at long room with christpuncher. Bitter and hoppy. Hate the English style. Not a fan but drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, some fruit and grassy. Taste of pine up front with some malt and bit of caramel sweetness with a bit of nut. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp, smooth and well balance. Has an unexpected malt character for an IPA. Enjoyable beer. Nice twist on being just another IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark golden/amber color. Promising aroma with prominent citrus notes, but some hints of grassiness. The flavor is more obviously grassy, a bit nutty, and murky. The bitterness is somewhat astringent, lightly metallic, and not pleasing. Might be the kind of beer that would improve with a hand-pulled cask, or at least that would fit the English aspirations.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow color with a foamy/filmy head and OK lacing. Nose is sweet citrus hops, grapefruits, tangerines, mangoes and some caramel & pale malts. Flavor is a bitter piney resin taste with some citrus hops, pale malts barley and some grassiness; very earthy tasting. Heavy body with some relatively high carbonation. Good IPA but I’ll stick with their other regular IPAs
