Super nice color of opaque darkish caramel-orange, coppery glow with a nice inch high head of off-white creamy thick foam, very thick and lucsiously rich looking with major hefty staying power. Lots of bigger bubbles dotted in its thickness and many areas of grouped spotty tight lace patches.
Soft pleasant nose of floral hops with some citrus and peach, nice sweet malt backing and a note of musty grass. Freshness abound, nice sniffer.

Taste is quite brillantly done soft but biting hops, a bit piney with a great mild earthy toned bitterness. The malt note picked up in the smell seems to never show up in the taste, but obviously there to keep this from being to hop heavy, which it is, but not in a bad way. Great dryness thats a bit smokey in the very late finish, nice!
Feel is pretty full and solid medium body with excellent bittering drynesses in levels.
What a great surprise - another brew from Summit I can gloat about locally, this is what should take place of the EPA that seems to be everywhere.
Solid American IPA, great job.

Pours a clear medium golden copper with a small white head. The foam settles and leaves a bit of white around the edge of the glass and a small bit of lacing on the walls of the glass.

Smells of smooth copper malt with a hint of medium caramel and a nice sweetness. Hops come through with a bit of fruity berry and a touch of grapefruit. Hint of pine at the end.

Smooth malty body with a nice biscuit flavor and nice bit of sweetness. Hops impart a bit of bitterness and a touch of fruit. Light grapefruit and a hint of orange. Caramel comes out of the malt at the end. Almost more of a slightly hoppy amber then an IPA but then again Summit has never been ones to push the limit.
