Thanks riversideAK! Clear copper, fluffy white head. Juicy citrus nose, pineapple forward. Garlic on the sip, clean though and balanced enough into the finish. Loving it more and more with each sip. Great use of summit perhaps?

Draft at Founders. Clearish coppery body, thin to medium clumping beige head. Aromatic nose with spruce needles, berries, twigs, bitter and spicy-floral. Interesting body with spruce needles, berries, brown sugar, and lots of bubblegum, even hints of tobacco. Nice blend of sweet, leafy, and bitter elements. A very nice IPA.
