Draft at Brass City Brew Fest. Nicely blended and smooth amber ale. Some hop bite and some breadiness from the malt. Mediumly bodied. Not bad.

12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquor - Wakefield, RI. Signature green onion, lemon, and cat Summit aroma shines through. Not bad. Wow. Texture is a seltzer and cooked pizza onion bomb. Cardboard and onions that have been soaking in water with a splash of Worcestershire sauce. The Summit hop flavor is terrible here and it doesn’t help that the base is practically colored bubbling water. I’ve been trying to work through the Peak catalog because I want organic to work, but it doesn’t help that Shipyard keeps making a mess out of all the beers. P.S. I didn’t think this could get worse, but now it just tastes like the world’s worst dried out chocolate malt milkshake.

Bottle. Amber pour with a short, spotty foam head. Aroma is strong citrus notes, light pine and floral hops. Taste is big citrus, floral hops, tropical fruit notes and light caramel. Body is light-medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more citrus, light pine, tropical fruit, floral hops, sweet malt and light caramel. Wasn’t expecting the hop bomb that I got but this wasn’t too bad!

Bottle. Pours light amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of wet cardboard and light earthy hops. Flavor of onions and rotten veggies. Soapy and metallic finish. Worst Peak beer I’ve had.

Slightly hazy amber coloured body with a thick, dense off-white head. Aroma of malt, vinegar, cardboard and very little else. Light-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Strong hops up front that fade almost immediately to a cardboardie and almost soapy flavour with some malt following behind and a dash of earth. Aftertaste all of a sudden reasserts the hops which are actually pretty strong and almost metallic. Overall, an interesting beer - not necessarily a fall beer in my opinion, but shows some good hops and deep flavours for the season, which isn’t bad. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$2.55 sampled at home in Washington on 07-February-2012.

Peak Organic Fall Summit Ale is a very clear amber ale with an off white head that fades to a bubbly splotch and leaves nice lacing on the glass. It smells delicious. It’s all hops, spicy and fruity. It’s kind of sweet in the nose, with notes of orange, taffy and... I don’t really know! It’s a solid and bold aroma. One whiff makes my mouth water. It’s pretty light bodied and soft. It seems a touch watery, but the finish is dry. It tastes a lot like the aroma, but not sweet and a little more complex. It’s resiny and toasty. There’s an orange peel flavor that lasts into the finish, where it’s joined by juniper to fade slowly after the swallow. This just goes right down. What a great session ale it would make.

im not a hophead so the hop heavy amber style does nothing for me. if you are into that, by all means give it a shot. not bad for what it is, just not for me.
